I suppose i shouldn't be surprised that google punished me for having sponsored links on my blog, but don't they know i am a poor student! I would rather they just sent me an email saying your blog has been a bit crap lately so we are changing your rank from 4 to 2, than penalising me have having sponsored posts on here. Anyone that reads this blog knows which is the sponsored stuff and i have never encouraged anyone to click on something they shouldn't or wouldn't want to.
To be honest i don't really know much about page rank at all and was only aware of it because of paid posting, but now when i see crap blogs with a better pr than mine i am a wee bit annoyed. I also mean no offence to the google gods, but give a girl a break!
