I’m trying to strike while the iron is hot (although I’m not gonna benefit anything from this) so with the ongoing, soon dying, PageRank brouhaha, I’m posting this funny image I got from Essential Keystrokes:
Jedi master Yoda: “Judge me by my PageRank, do you?”
LOL. So no, don’t judge a website by its PageRank. A website’s PR score is just one of the many indications that the it is doing good. It’s not the only basis. Unless, you’re only focused on selling links and doing more sponsored reviews — which I’m not.. Not anymore.. Not yet? Haha.
Btw, to those Text Link Ads, ReviewMe, PayPerPost, SponsoredReviews (etc.) users whose websites’ PageRanks have increased, don’t forget to edit your website details (ranking and pricing) in each of your dashboards. In TLA, for example, you can update your Alexa ranking by clicking on the link “Edit your listings” in your Account Home. Choose the website you want to update, click on “Edit Details”, find your “Alexa Rank” info, then click on the “Update” button beside it. That’s it! You might want to update your other accounts with the other munny-making sites, too, if you want to earn more munny.
For another good read in regards to the recent PR phenomenon, Aaron Wall has listed items about Google’s obfuscations of PageRank scores.
Still on the topic of PageRank, CashQuests.com suggests a way for a webmaster/blogger to know more about his own site’s PageRank details. If you want to check not only your homepage’s PR scores, but your internal pages as well, LivePR is the perfect tool to use. Once you’ve entered your main site URL and the page has stopped loading, click on the “Sort by PR” button on top. Here’s an example for my site:
I’m sure there are other similar tools out there, LivePR is just one of the reliable ones. The LivePR tool, just like the other analytics tools (SeoDigger, Alexa ranking, Technorati, Google Trends, Compete.com, etc.) helps us get to know our website or blog better. But like I said, PageRanks are not the only thing we should think about, so, moving on… :)
I’ll be away for a few days (and by “away” I mean a place where there’s no computer or Internet access) to have what I think is a much needed break. Lol. Have a nice long weekend again! Don’t you just love long weekends?
Oh and Happy Halloween! :)
