It seems Goole started the Page Rank update again after just two months. This time I got kicked again to pr 0. It seems weird since one of my sites that has very little traffic and backlinks went from 0 to 1 and this blog, that has over 15k backlinks went to 0. I`m starting to wonder what the real reason for being kicked is. I admit I did two sponsored posts and set up a ad sale in the sidebar. But still, I don`t see any reason to be punished like this. If you do paid posts, sell links, sell add space etc. using a intermediate site that Google doesn`t like (like ppp probably), you can kiss away your Page Rank. It`s really not fair.
I know Google supports open source, but do they realize that by taking my Page Rank they took my only source of income? It was little income, but kept my web hosting costs to 0. So now I ask them, why would I continue? It wasn`t a big deal, but the two little open source scripts here were downloaded over 5000 times. What`s the point now? Don`t get me wrong, I couldn`t care less, but it seems that Google keeps getting meaner, and unwillingly (I hope) forces us to do different things.
How is a little blogger supposed to make any money under these conditions?

As a protest, I`m removing all external ads from my sites, including AdSense.

    I don’t care about PR. Being PR 0 you can still reach first page on google’s search result if you do SEO perfectly for your targetted keywords.

    Don’t cry for PR. It matters a little.

    I really don’t understand google’s PR strategy. People who are linking to my articles have a higher page rank than mine. There are websites who just create their blog automatically through software’s still get higher page rank, even though they don’t have content of their own.

    Well according to me you should not work for PR. I am working with websites from last 3 years and this is personal experience that if u work genuinely and smartly means “Good SEO” +Ranking for Keywords your PR will be updated accordingly.

    Your hard work should be rewarded. But it will take some time to get rewarded. So stop worrying about PR and continue contributing to the online community.

    Google has really attacked me and many of my friends. I see many big name sites and blogging networks breaking many TOS’s yet they go after the little guys while rewarding the Networks.

    They then follow up by making accusations that he is not a good teacher, even though they have not been in his classroom. ,

    Promotions and cultural exchanges such as setting up a Confucius Institute, organizing an art show and sports events and holding themed forums should be implemented, she said.
