Well, it’s hard to see how such things work in the Mind of Google, but may Google’s will be done.
Just two days ago I mentioned the frustrations related to Internet writing and discussed the “Google slap” given to one of my blogs which knocked it down in page rank (PR) first from PR 2 to PR 1, then PR 0.
I just discovered a few minutes ago that Google has knocked this blog down in PR, and not as gently as the other. I went from a PR 3 to an instant PR 0.
I have taken paid blogging on both blogs in question. Yet I have tried to maintain consistent, worthwhile content on both blogs in addition to the paid posts. And I have never taken a paid post for which I had any ethical, moral, or legal qualms. So I thought I was consistently adding legitimate content to the Internet at this website, and I have no real appreciation for why Google would whack the PR out of the blog.
Guess I’ll just have to cry a bit, then get back to business. As far as I know, there’s really not any legitimate way to ask Google to reconsider — and at this point, there’s no way to get potential advertisers to see great value in low- to no-rank blogs.
The expression here, I believe, is “Catch 22.”
