I recently changed from a blogspot to .com domain, and my Page Rank took a nose dive. I have tried everything, but nothing seems to get me back up again. My numbers/views etc. has doubled, but nothing has changed with the PR.

Have you experienced anything similar?
What did you do to get the PR back up again?
How long did it take to get the PR up?

@ Anne-Marie, thank you for the support ;)
So I would like to ask, for those of you who changed to a .com domain, was it just your PR that changed?
All of my stats basically had to start all over again, pageviews, unique visitors, unless I am missing something? :/
My stats had to start over again, but I just left the old google analytics account runnning until the news stats had run for a month.

Agree with what others are saying - don't worry. In a few weeks it will pop back up. I was at a 3 to start, then dropped, then when it went back up I was a 4 even.
Just realize google hasnt done their major PR updates since april 2010
you can check it here http://googlepagerankupdate.com/
The next one was supposed to be july-august but its been delayed.

They do small pagerank updates, randomly, in between then. But don't expect a miracle.
Also, if you didn't do a 301 redirect it'll be asking for trouble with google. However, blogspot/blogger auto does this when you forward to a domain I believe. You might lose some backlink juice. However, I noticed better rankings in search when transfering to a domain.
