PageRank has been a widely accepted factor few years back. It was given more importance because the founder has its name on it. Almost company takes this Google factor as a major factor while optimizing their website.

PageRank has been a dream for every website owner to get the maximum mark by next update.
Google understands the needs and to avoid link selling and people only focusing on PageRank factors, it stops letting the update.

Not sure exact date, but it might be more than 3 years ago; Google has stopped updating its most stunning features PR forever.

What do you people believe, is PageRank dead and will not be back again. Webmasters love the Google and so for the PageRank. It was also one of the important factors that took Google to lead in the search engines market.

Folks still believe PageRank may gone dead but still have same strong value like it was before. Google is not able to change its algorithm overnight neither they dream to have a fresh one to get success with like they had with previous one.
The matter is they have just let us do not see it, i guess.

Just because toolbar PR hasn't been updated doesn't mean PR is dead. Toolbar was never accurate in any case, it was just a representation of your actual PR at some point in time. PR still exists, it's just not updated for webmasters.

The Last Pagerank Update was 5/6 December 2013 and google haven't updated since three years. Seems to be not updated further more.
Old PRs are still present on sites but have no value and all depends on domain authority factor of the site.

These Domain Authority, PR all are not accurate and still people are looking to buy advertisements according to PR based sites. I am still not understanding why Google keeps PR for those who got during last update.

Anyway we are webmasters and they are leaders so they can do what they wish and we have to follow with them as they go.

In the matter of fact, PagRank still exists but what has been done is to remove it from Google toolbar and not visible to us.
Very few of you might aware of, 4 years back, when the PageRank was updated we received the previous updated chart and the Google has current dated chart when the algorithms update.

Google started different tactics to appears an old version of PR for webmasters and hide the current PR from the toolbar and they put the current PR update in the next PR update. It was the tactics they follow before they have stopped Pr update.

The reason toolbar PR update is no longer being updated is due to link sellers imo. It was used as a metric for link sales, which is frowned upon by Google.

If you happen to remember before Google came to existence, webmasters has no clue how search engines works and there was no interaction among the search engines and the webmasters.
Google has started this friendly behavior and webmasters were now able to interact in many ways with Google. This is the first step Google has created a line for success and the other was PageRank.
PageRank was something a search engine let the webmasters know the some kind of value of their websites stated 1 to 10.
I am sure, Larry Page would have someone to blame after seeing PageRank gone from toolbar.

Do you disagree with what I said? I think toolbar PR encouraged link selling, because everyone was chasing "high PR links". They knew this so stopped updating it.

Don't pay too much attention on the pagerank in the pagerank toolbar. Just focus on updating your site with quality and informative content regularly and building backlinks. Don't buy the backlinks but build the backlinks to the site yourself slowly. For example, you can submit articles to article directories, create slides, infographics and share tips on a video on YouTube to get backlinks and traffic to your website.

Might be you would right and Google wants to stop link selling business. Moreover, there is no chance of PR increase, but google drops the PR (from current PR to zero PR) of most of the sites nowadays where he found any misleading.

Exactly, since it's no longer updated, it can no longer be used as a metric for link sales, even though some link sellers still do.

page rank is dead because many webpage owners start selling do-follow backlink that help them in getting high page rank.
Due to a lot of spamming in page rank high page rank do-follow backlinks are selling widely in high cost.
But previous page rank score is still matter for ranking in search engine.
