I was checking some of my domains tonight and found that it appears that the Google Page Rank updates have begun again. I’m not sure exactly how it occurs, if it is only for a certain percentage of the blogs and sites out there or not that get updated.
I can happily report that ejcross.com is now a PR5! So, what does that mean? It means that I have played by the google rules and have escaped unharmed from any concerns I had about my page rank.
Several of my others sites also went from a PR n/a to a PR3 and a few others remained the same. One of my bigger sites, BestiPodStuff.com went to a PR3 also. This is good news for me and my sites, but what is the bigger picture?
In October or so there was great weeping and anger from numerous bloggers when Google smacked down their PR. There were several high profile bloggers that went from a PR 5 or PR 6 to a PR 0 or PR 2.
By using good, solid SEO practices such as clean markup, great titles and a few other SEO methods, you can increase your PR also. But, one important thing to not be overlooked is what exactly are you doing on your blog?
I wonder if those blogs that use the “do follow” will be affected? Also, will the Google smack down on blogs that use PayPerPost and other “paid” links be affected? I’m sure we will begin to hear about it, only if this PR update is more widespread than just my blogs.
It will be interesting to see what happens this time around.
So, what happened with your PR? Did it go up or down?
