The PageRank Update Arrives

Tons of popular bloggers lost pagerank, including us. It is kind of depressing, working so hard on your website, then basically being told you are doing it wrong, from the powers that be. I’ve waited so long for the update to give us a 5 or 6, now going backwards, it seems so far away.

The Rest Updates

For the rest of the blogosphere it was good news. Pagerank finally updated! Going from 0, to any pagerank is a huge boost. Many advertisers can discredit you for not having pagerank, especially through services like PayPerPost.

My Updates

I was happy to see all of my blogs updated.

Words of a Poet 0 to 2
It’s All Free Online 0 to 2
Blogging Addiction 0 to 2
Fantasy Football 0 to 3

The update for these blogs was pretty interesting, because Blogging Addiction and Fantasy Football previously had page ranks of 4, on their old blogspot domains.

Who else got a good update?

Now is the first chance to show off your new ranking!

    I went from a PR3 to a PR4 which was really nice. I don’t really understand the new Pagrank though because it seems a lot of people who shouldn’t have been, were hurt by the update. I wish Google would explain what went on.

    I went from a PR N/A to a PR2 on all three of my blogs. All of them were started after the April update, so I really had nowhere to go but up. :)

    I haven’t seen any change in either of my two blogs, at least not as reported by the Search Status extension for FF.

    no update for my main blog but all my new sites are now pr 3…the youngest and still top secret project jumped from 0 to 5! ^_^

    Matt, you’re right that it is a good thing to at least have maintained the previous rank of PR4 and not dropped at all.

    Oops, the rise and fall of my empire is underway, down from 5 to 4. Not a paid link in sight.

    My blog stayed the same at PR4 and my main site went up to 4 from 3, so I am happy.

    Luckily Mine has stayed at 4.

    Mine is still in flux, but since it was N/A, I’ll be happy with either the 2 or the 3 that it’s fluctuating between. (although I like that 3!)

    fantastic news, I’ve been waiting for this update for a long long time.

    One of my blogs went from PR0 to PR3 which helps to justify the hard work I put into writing the content.

    My other blog cheapeatsinlondon.co.uk is still PR0, but then it’s more of a hobby!
