About a month ago this blog went from a PR5 down to a PR4. This wasn’t too bad compared to some of my favorite blogs around the net. They got slapped pretty hard. I thought all of this was over, so imagine my surprise when I awoke this morning and noticed that my PR has now been reduced to 2.
Now, it sucks. If one wants to make money online, they have to have a decent pagerank. Regardless of what Google says about not looking at pagerank as a representation of a websites value, with PR being around for so long, that is one of the major things people look at to determine a websites value.
I guess I can now officially join the “slapped by Google” crowd. This was a big blow to me though. I worked hard to get to where I was, and now the big G has to come in and do this. It really sucks man… it really sucks.
Part of me says forget about Google completely and stick to the other things on the net. But on the other hand, Google is such a huge part of the internet, it is kinda hard to forget about them.
The part that I don’t understand, if I were to link to something like Dallas Cowboys tickets, how does Google determine whether or not that is a paid link?
Anyone else get hit this weekend?
