The recent Google PageRank update popped up like a thief in the night indeed: since there seems to be no rhyme or reason as to when they update their visible PageRank these days, only one thing remains true – Google keeps us all on our toes.
By the way, many of you seemed to have done pretty well in this update: lots of reports of increased PR – congratulations to you all!
It was also nice to see Traffic Generation Cafe to finally dig out of the trenches of PR0, where it remained for the past year since its inception, to PR4.
However, I wanted to see more than just my home page PR increase.
I wanted to see how the rest of my pages did as well, and that’s where I came to a stumbling block – turns out there’s no easy tool out there to mass check the PageRank for the inner pages of any given website.
I believe I am not the only one with this problem – there were plenty of similar questions on all kinds of forums, all with outdated links to tools that either no longer work or check home page PageRanks for multiple websites at once, not the inner pages.
Once I gave up looking for a solution and thought about it for a second – turned out to be quite a useful exercise! – I realized that I already had all the tools I needed to find all the newly updated with higher PR inner pages of Traffic Generation Cafe.
The Winning Formula
The solution turned out to be very simple.
All I needed was:
1. The search query term site:www.trafficgenerationcafe.com typed into Google search box (to learn more about this and other Google search query terms, check out How to Use Google Search Query Terms to Learn More About Any Site);
2. SEO Quake Firefox extension enabled (also available for other browsers).
Allow me to illustrate:
In order to make the best out of your results, make sure to sort them by “PageRank” as shown in the top left corner – that way all your higher ranking pages will show up at the top, leaving all the “n/a” pages behind.
SEO Quake is also a great tool when it comes down to quality one-way link building.

As always, don’t get too hung up on PageRank – it’s only one of 200 search engine ranking factors Google uses.
I suggest you pay more attention to finding authority blogs in a relevant niche – and then comment away!
