After ten months since its last iteration in February, Google Toolbar PageRank has been updated. As Matt Southern shared on search marketing news site Search Engine Journal:

It’s always big deal in the SEO community with Google releases this kind of update because PageRank is the most clearly visible metric available to determine the value of a website based on how many quality links are pointing to it. This December 2013 update is of particular importance because no one saw it coming.… Today’s update indicates that Toolbar PageRank is still very much alive, at least for now.

Indeed, Google PageRank being updated is an indication that the toolbar still has value when it comes to measuring the amount and overall quality of inbound links pointing to a website.
