Those of you who follow SE news closely know that Google has not updated its toolbar PR for a long time. Many also believe that other updates in the index are kind of out of sync. Is this just SEO consultants' imagination?

More important question is this actually. It is estimated that 60% of Google employees are now millionaires on paper, and that the company faces difficult time motivating employees and retain them. Do you think that this is affecting Google's operation since its IPO? Also does this have a significant impact in near future?

I'm fed up of SEO experts wafflin on about the toolbar.

I have the toolbar, but changed the options - it's useless nowadays IMO and providing I'm ranking well, traffic is coming to the site and my clients are getting enquiries I don't care my site is PR6 or PR10.

p.s. if there is an update though I might have to check out my sites PR though Laughing

Once update takes place, I'm sure that most SEO experts start talking about how PR is so critical ... Rolling Eyes

60% of Google employees millionaires? Hmmm... is that in-house employees? Overall Google is estimated to have 2,200 people working for them. I can assure you that 60% of them are not millionaires. Most of these people do not work in Mountain View, CA, and are scattered all over the world.

Anyway, money does make one slack. Now that our company is doing much better, I find it harder and harder to keep motivated. Smile
