I bumped the entry that was supposed to go up tonight and instead I am posting this one. I am browsing sites of some popular bloggers today to get some idea on what is happening in the other side of the blogosphere (read: the upper class) and have found this banner really funny…
These people are kissing Poogle’s a$$ to be able to get their PRs back. Ha! As if Poogle Google will care about them!
This blogger, one of the top earners in PPP, is saying goodbye to her paid posts because she is on a “Poogle worship mission”, her words not mine. She can adopt all this kiss-a$$ attitude already because she has earned over $10K from PPP and is earning almost $1K from TLA every month. Now what about the little bloggers just starting out to earn some extra income for the holidays???
I say go on an Alexa worship mission! Haha 😀
I read Matt Cutts’ blog whenever he has updates. I love the guy even if he works at the Poogleplex. I admire his spunk in answering bitchy comments from bloggers slapped by his boss. I also admire his deep supply of patience in facing bloggers lambasting his boss. He explained some reasons why most blogs lost their PR. As well as why blogs not selling links or doing paid posts also got the slap. But there are loopholes in his explanation that I still don’t understand. Like, why are some blogs selling links not penalized like ours? Are they just lucky enough to avoid the Poogle’s all-encompassing eyes? And he said that blogs not into paid posts got a PR reduction because there was a PR update made at the same time the slap was happening. But then when you look at popular blogs previously slapped, they got their PR back just after a few days. What’s the deal?
Anyway, whatever, I still love Matt Cutts! Go read his blog if you are concerned whether Poogle will give you your PR back.
Anyhow, this site is saying GOODBYE to PPP, Blogsvertise and ReviewMe. Ah no, I am not on a Poogle worship mission as well. It’s just that, now that this site is back to a PR0, I don’t feel compelled to write $5 posts under PPP anymore. And I am not really crazy about the Real Rank and Social Spark. It looks dubious to me and there is this nagging thought in my mind that Real Rank will only benefit the upper class of PPP posties and posties from the US, Canada and UK. Asian posties, notice how we don’t get decent opps but when you ask other posties in the US and UK they still get decent ones even if they have a PR0?
ReviewMe has brought me a decent amount of income when I joined them. But for some reason, campaigns get lesser and lesser for PR0 blogs. Ditto with Blogsvertise.
I checked and I only have 9 posts under PPP and 8 posts under ReviewMe. Not really sure how many under Blogsvertise but I think it’s around 5. There will be no more than that.
I will still be doing paid posts for SponsoredReviews, Smorty, PayU2Blog, BTOP and others.
BUT, it would be lesser or in between 2 non sponsored posts. That will be my goal for this blog come 2008.
Happy blogging everyone!
