Method get returns an empty string.
use strict; use Data::Dumper; use WWW::Google::PageRank; my $pr = WWW::Google::PageRank->new; print Dumper($pr); print scalar($pr->get('')), "\n";

    Well, what appears is that an HTTP request gets executed and is actually successful but no content is returned that we can decode via HTTP::Response::decoded_content or HTTP::Response::content, it is very hard for me to find out but the behavior seems universal regardless of the website I am querying, so maybe Google has stopped entertaining automated access via code for security probably, just a guess ..
    use strict; use warnings; use HTTP::Response; use HTTP::Status; use Data::Dumper; use WWW::Google::PageRank; my $pr = WWW::Google::PageRank->new; my @context = $pr->get(""); print $context[1]->status_line, "<<<<\n"; #The request is carried out! print $context[1]->content,"\n"; #No result is returned print $context[1]->decoded_content,"\n"; #No result either

    David R. Gergen said "We know that second terms have historically been marred by hubris and by scandal." and I am a two y.o. monk today :D, June,12th, 2011...

      This is most likely. Google's PageRank endpoints are very trigger-happy with the banhammer, and will begin demanding CAPTCHAs (which I'm sure WWW::Google::PageRank will not like) very quickly.
