Google's Page Rank service has made some changes recently

There has been some concerned lately regarding Google's Page Ranking service. Some bloggers/webmasters are getting the following message after a PR query:

The Page Rank:

- N/A
IMPORTANT: N/A (not available) - it is not possible to show the pagerank at the moment

The N/A pagerank (grey pagerank bar) might be due to one of the following reasons:

(1) the web page is new and it is not ranked by Google yet,
(2) the Google's server is not able to return the pagerank value at the moment,
(3) the web site is banned by Google,
(4) our PR checking tool is not able to get the page rank value at the moment, etc.

Here's an explanation as to why you might be getting these messages. If you see a grey pagerank bar or N/A rank upon your web page, you should not panic. Your site is probably not banned but do read the explanation to verify.
