    I know about PR0 but I am really confused in PR -1. What is this PageRank -1 means? Waiting for help here.

    Thanks.

    I don't believe there is such a rating, I'd do a PR check on a few websites to verify and make sure one isn't just saying that.

    Some third party PageRank checkers or directory scripts will show this when the PageRank is unavailable for some reason, most often because Google discourages automatic PR scripts.

    Yes minstrel, I faced it while managing my directory. So, is it good or bad?

    It's neither good nor bad. It just is. It means, as I said, that Google didn't return the information.

    What script are you using?

    It's php script that I have in my signature link.

    OK... phpLD. I think that's a known issue and probably one without remedy, although you could check at their support forums.

    It happens with eSyndicat too - see the TAZ Directory and scroll down the left hand side to the list of PR ranks represented - there are 268 with PR -1 there. :)

    It's really nothing to worry about.

    Live PR rankings are only available internally at Google. The rank public rank is occasionally updated. I'm not sure if this is the case, but I would imagine that it could perhaps result in -1 if the site is too new to have a public rank yet.

    See above. It's nothing new and it's related to software betond Google's control.

    10 Links from Pagerank -1 sites equals 1 Link from a PR0 page, I think or maybe your site can be rated yet.

    I used seoquake to view page ranking of websites and after visiting a lot of websites, I haven't encountered this one before..

    Blackhat will get you a negative standing with Google, but won't show up as a negative pagerank. :p

    This must be a short for Supplemental page

    Adding: because there is no such term "Negative Ranking" in eye of Google

    the page rank -1 means that the website is very new . It will soon get to 0 .
