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.
