Page Rank Slams
If your blog or your business in any way depends on Google traffic, then you couldn’t have missed what happened yesterday.
A discussion of the page rank drop and a list of affected blogs was offered by Daniel at Daily Blogging Tips:
Here is a list that I gathered with big blogs that supposedly lost PR . . .
- Statcounter (from 10 to 6)
- Engadget (from 7 to 5)
- AutoBlog (from 6 to 4)
- Problogger (from 6 to 4)
- Copyblogger (from 6 to 4)
- AdesBlog (from 7 to 5)
- Search Engine Journal (from 7 to 4)
- Quick Online Tips (from 6 to 3)
- Search Engine Roundtable (from 7 to 4)
- Blog Herald (from 6 to 4)
- Weblog Tools Collection (from 6 to 4)
- JohnTP (from 6 to 4)
- Coolest Gadgets (from 5 to 3)
- CyberNet News (from 6 to 4)
In a second list, Daniel goes on to mention several mainstream media sites also hit, including the Washington Post, Forbes, and the Chicago Sun-Times.
Kind of makes us all stop to wonder how Google dependent we are.
