Page Rank and SEO

After much waiting and uncertainty, Google finally updated Page Rank. Several months ago, this blog came up with a Page Rank of 3. Since then I have been joining sites like BlogCatalog and MyBlogLog, participating in some weekly memes, and generally going around the blogosphere, reading and commenting more. I watched my Alexa score drop, and my Technorati authority rise, and figured my Page Rank must go up, too - or at least stay the same. I figured wrong. It dropped to a 2. My other blogs, the ones with higher Alexa and lower Technorati authority? Those went up. Now all my blogs are PR2.

Obviously I'm missing something. I don't understand how all this Page Rank and SEO stuff really works, and my strategy isn't working. Business Opportunity Carolinas offers a way to help increase SEO benefits. Maybe that's something I should look into?


  1. Sorry to hear you have the same situation as me :( I don't get this page rank stuff. I have two other blogs that are a little over 3 months old..they have a pr of 2 as well. My website which has been running for about 6 years has a 2 as well?!!?! Where is the sense in this?!

  2. Hi Anna. I'm saddened by the sudden drop of my PR. I started with a PR 4 and even displayed a little widget on my blog then something must have triggered it to lower. It dropped to a 3 and now I am left with PR 2. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. It's really sad but I try not to let it bother me so much now than it had several days ago.

    Anyway, I have something for you on my blog. A thank you note and an award. Finally, I was able to post it after such a long delay.

    I made it a point to post it today. It's already 2:51 am so I better go to bed.

  3. What's up with this PR stuff? Mine did go from a 1 to a 3 with lots of time spent at the computer but I don't understand how it all works yet...

    enjoy your weekend :0)
