It appears today that Google has now disabled the PageRank API (toolbarqueries.google.com – direct access now returns a 404). All requests to the API now return PR 0.
This looks to be the end of the visible PageRank Google announced a month ago.
This is the end of an era, but this change is good. PageRank changed the way SEO has been carried out, and not for the better.
