It seems there is really some confusing implementation of Google’s PageRanking system.
I am a lurker at Colleen’s blog, PPP’s top earner. When the Google slap happened, a few weeks after the first and second hits, her blog which was a PR5 went down to PR0. Just a couple of days ago, I noticed that her blog went up to PR3 again. I emailed her last night about this and asked her if she did anything at all to get some PR back. She said that she hasn’t done anything at all.
There is hope after all 😉
Now there’s another PPP top earner’s blog that I’ve been lurking at. She’s an obnoxious person but she dishes out tips and tricks in making money online and some wordpress tricks so I read her blog entries. She has a PR4 then went down to PR0. She gained back her PR4 a few weeks back by cleaning her blog. She removed all make money banners and sidebar links. She made links No Follow and have removed any post associated with PPP. Then she submitted her blog to Google for reconsideration.
You can do that as well. So many blogs have regained their PR by doing this. But of course, you need to say goodbye to the incoming extra dollars. What would you be needing a PR for if you can’t earn from it?
Then again look at Colleen’s blog. If there’s one person in the whole www associated with PPP, that would be her. And she gained back her PR without doing anything. Tina S. is another popular PPP member doing PPP posts with a banner to boot. Yet she still has a PR3 until now.
Google’s PR is really one big mystery to me.
