I’m a little confused about our relationship. After two years, you dumped me from Page Rank 6 to a Page Rank 3.
I would have thought it was text-links I had — they’re gone now. I’m sorry. The world knows I’m not an SEO whiz, if I was one, I wouldn’t have 40-some categories in my sidebar. At least, that’s what folks tell me.
But you dumped my LizStrauss blog too, and it doesn’t have any ads and never did.
It’s disheartening when I think of how I advocate NOT GAMING the system.
You might remember when I said
- “Iâ€™d rather not blog than be irrelevant.”
- “Be a quality citizen.”
- Look for quality homes for your links.
Did you misunderstand the SOB program after all of this time? Not all of these folks have all of the links you might expect, but they will, because they show the key traits of a successful blogger. I know they will because they write good content and they make good relationships.
Is it that I write creative entertainment sometimes? Isn’t that better than just regurgitating someone else’s content?
Everyone knows that a link exchange on this blog is out of the question.
And then there was my personal stance on link trains and other valueless link posts.
If the recent birthday party invitation to 646 blogs threw you, please know that it lived up to the “Dear Emperor” standard. So will the link posts like this first one that celebrate the links the party guests brought to show their most successful and outstanding experiences — a birthday only happens once a year. You can believe I’m checking them. I do that for you, for me, and for my readers.
So Google, that’s our history. I know you know me better. I’m the person behind the numbers. I don’t link promiscuously.
I’m the relationship blogger. I want folks to respect me in the morning.
