OK, so I jumped on the bandwagon last week and added what I thought was the Google sponsered "Page Rank" on my blog. I checked today, and the icon didn't show up, but the link was still there. I clicked the link and "www.google-pagerank.net" now gets automatically forwarded to Google's main page.
So I searched for "google page rank" and there's a ton of sites that can display your Google Page rank. Perhaps the Google lawyers were working some overtime this weekend to get "www.google-pagerank.net" shutdown?
