Google Smoogle!

Disclaimer: I have no idea about this type of thing really, so this is probably just an ill informed ranting.

WTF! If you don't know what I mean by WTF! Have a guess, here is a clue its saying bad words in a confused and indignant way.
What has got my goat? enraged the beast, made me type like crazy? This Google Page Rank Fiasco! When I first got a 4/10 I was very happy but not sure what it really was and if I deserved it.
Then i heard rumblings that if you did paid posts and text links on your sites that your google rank will be affected. It was and I was down to 2/10, today I am a 0/10.

I am just so confused about it all and will post more when I can find some decent information on it.


  1. Yup, I'm the same...let me know if you find out what's going on?! It's making paid posts impossible for sure. :(

  2. At least you were polite about it! I still don't know what's going on - it just doesn't seem fair, does it?

  3. WTBF... me too - I read your post & checked. What is it with these people? How can any PR3 or 4 blog that earns a few $ per month in any way be a hair in anyone's soup? Let alone Google's..
    I just don't get it.

  4. Hi again. seems to think that it's Text Link Ads that's the main culprit. I've never sold a link to them, I've just had their logo up in case I got accepted one day, which hasn't happened... Double whammy if he's right!
    Anyway - it's removed now.

  5. I'm a 0 too. But don't worry, from what I understand, the focus won't be on this unfair rank for much longer.

  6. I wanted to chime in, even if a little late. Google targeted PPP posties as one group to demote.

    I don't have any TLA links on my site and I went from 4 to 3 and then to 0.

  7. Seems to be affecting quite a lot of bloggers. Anyway I think you deserve 10/10 so there Google!! ((raspberry))
