Yes the day has finally arrived – the Google PR update. Look up at your Google Toolbar and see what I see for this page? A whopping PR of 4! 😆 First new site ever to start out with a bang like this, I usually struggle with 1 and 2 for new sites. Told ya – I’m not a SEO pro :lol:.
The three directories I started in the past couple months have quite a mix, PR 4, PR 3 and PR 1. My pal’s directory nabbed a 3 (started the same time period) as mine).
The aff sites are mixes from 1 to 3 (I still can’t seem to jump the 3 for an aff site).
One new aff site (February) didn’t receive any PR, still sitting at 0. 👿
Now I know we can’t get all excited about Page Rank because the numbers shown don’t seem to be a true representation, but it sure makes things A LOT easier when link building. Not many directories or sites out there that are willing to link to a PR 0 website – no matter how great a resource it is. And we all know how important IBLs are.
I’m pretty surprised that a few of my aff sites haven’t done better because I really worked at link building since the past update. Two sites even dropped a point. Oh well, at least all but one of my new websites have some PR showing. That will help get things going for them.
[Just noticed the ugly spelling error in my last post – really need to watch that don’t I? grrrr]
Hope the PR update brought you a pleasant surprise or two today!
ETA: Just noticed Spamhuntress nailed a 6 for her blog (new in Feb). Go spamhuntress! 😆
