It´s so weird, but apparently it´s working for some reason...
You can check if your site (or any other site) got penalized by Google! Check it out while it´s still working!

Pretty neat, although it doesn’t seem to work for every site. It would be nice if we could see where those hyves leading their queen bee’s to ;)

it worked most sites I tested....not sure if that means at one point the site was banned (currently indexed) or is about to be ! hope that’s not the case ;)

interesting - looks like PPP set up a redirect from the sub so folks can’t check to see if they’re penalized. http://hyves.payperpost.com

Seems from my testing it looks like newer domains might be 4s until they’re somehow "proven?"  Possibly related to the sandbox effect people talk about...

So why did I get a 5? I though it should be a 7 or 4 or 0 only.... what the heck is a 5? The excpeption that prooves the rule?

Not working now... Every site is PR0, meaning they’re all banned according to the method.

Yup, Stephen is right - not working now. I get PR0 for every site, or firefox just says it can’t find tha domain ... oh, well.

I typed in "hyves.Mydomain.com" and it brought up my actual site! Of course I changed ’Mydomain" to my actual blog name. I dont have any subs, just the blog. tried it with my other and it also brings up the actual site with that in the begining. all pageranks remain the same. I picked up on this as my blog was ranked at a 4 went up to 5 for a bit, now its down to zero. Im not banned or anything, its no different than any other political blog, actually cleaner. :) but Im trying to find out how to up my ranks.

@manfred, if you are getting the same site showing for any subdomain, and it doesn’t redirect, thats a config error.Review your .htaccess (or IIS equiv) and if that seems clean, check with your host (and it will probably mean moving hosts - if they are dumb enough to do it, they are probably too dumb to believe it needs fixing). You need to fix it :)

I’ve run 20 sites through this technique, each returned accurate data. I’ve also had associates who live in other parts of the world test this technique themselves with known sites. Again, accurate results were returned.This begs the question... what other little toolbar tricks are there?

it’s gone on all the sites I saw it working yesterday. da G should have waited another day or two to compile a nice list of hyves.yourdomain.com calls

Checked it yesterday with 10 sites, two of which were delisted. Results were 100% accurate as predicted. Haven’t had time to follow up today. Neat trick - if it’s no longer operational, that shouldn’t come as a big surprise, either.

I mass checked pagerank of the old Aviva strongest directories list on my blog last night.Shows a pretty clear split between high quality directories with no penalty and lower quality directories with pagerank penalties as you would expect. So, it looked pretty damn accurate to me.It didn’t necessarily tell you anything you couldn’t already work out from a little site analysis anyway with regards to penalties, but a nice trick and very odd.

seems to be working or at perhaps for the moment it is "fixed" it to be inconclusive, etc. until you get a googler replying... who the heck knows...pr7 right now: http://hyves.bbc.co.uk/pr0 right now: http://hyves.cnn.com/pr7 right now: http://hyves.oregonlive.com/pr0 right now: http://hyves.pbs.org/Lol: pr9 http://hyves.whitehouse.gov/

In FF I got a page load error for http://hyves.bbc.co.uk/.Checked it on IE and I get the Google DNS Error page. What’s interesting here is that the "View a cached copy of the web page from Google" link takes me to the cached page of http://www.hyves.nl/, even though the link is http://74.125.95.132/search?q=cache:http://hyves.bbc.co.uk/. Interestingly, hyves.nl has a PR of 7.Is it complete randomness, or just weirdness, or is Google returning the PR of hyves.nl, albeit seemingly randomly, whenever the ’hyves.’ prefix is used on a root domain.
