This blog used to sit as a PR5 blog, and I was quite happy with myself for accomplishing that in only a short period of time. My blog was only about 4 months old when it got its first PageRank update and it jumped straight to 5. Nice!
The fist PR sweep that rolled through about a month ago knocked me down to PR3. I wasn’t too pleased with that, but I could deal with it. I figured that I could have lost a few links during that HUGE gap between pagerank updates. Unfortunately, as you can see, this blog currently has a PR0. Yup, a big fat goose egg for me…and thousands of other bloggers that blog for PayPerPost.
Google is going after PPP posties and punishing them with no pagerank. Google has always said that PR should not be used as a determination of a blogs value, and if that wasn’t apparent, it is now. I’ve always thought that this whole PR thing was a bunch of BS anyway, and now I know that it is.
Any other PPP posties get the ol’ goose egg over the past few days?
