Google Pagerank Update

I have a very very strong feeling Google will update pagerank these few days. Cross your fingers, hopefully you are not one of those blacklisted sites.

Its been more than 3 months since the last update.

Google has not been updating its index for 1 week. So, I suppose they are brewing something in the lab. Something will happen these few days. Trust me.
