A little late, but here is today's score

Included 'baan forum', forgot to remove Altavista.

AOL - lost our 93 ranking for 'baan erp'...gone.
Google - no change
MSN - 'baan erp' up to 48 from 52, 'baan help' down to 67 from 62.
Yahoo! - 'baan forum' put us on the map.

Also, our pagerank is still at 3.

We're doing something wrong.

Here is the PR algorithm:
PR(A) = (1-d) + d (PR(T1)/C(T1) + ... + PR(Tn)/C(Tn))
where PR(A) is the PageRank of a page A
PR(T1) is the PageRank of a page T1
C(T1) is the number of outgoing links from the page T1
d is a damping factor in the range 0 < d < 1, usually set to 0.85

So really we can't build our own PR, because it is largely determined by the PR of the sites linking to US.
