Last week, Google made some changes to the way that they calculate the page rank score of individual web sites. For most sites, this doesn’t make a difference, however, some of the more popular blogging sites were affected dramatically.
I didn’t pay much attention to the page rank issue as since this site was created, and up until a few weeks ago, my page rank score from Google was a 0. That’s right, a whopping 0 (zero).
I thought, well, maybe I would check my page rank, so I fired up the SEO Quake Toolbar on my Firefox browser, and to my shock and amazement, this site is now a page rank 4!
This is simply amazing to me how I can go from a zero to a 4 in just one change of Google’s page rank system.
Another major change that I have noticed is my Alexa rank has also changed. About one month ago I had a traffic rank of 2,212,411. My traffic rank today is 562,090. Not to shabby for one month!
I believe these changes are due to the content I am writing, using SEO friendly plugins and coding on my site, and also joining a few social networking sites that have helped to drive some traffic here.
I can’t neglect, however, to offer my thanks to all of you that have read and subscribed to this site and found it useful. You are the reason that I am blogging, and I appreciate your support!
