Many people have been running around screaming ‘woe is me, I am undone’ and ‘My poor family how will I live with the shame of telling them I have been PR Zeroed by Google?”
WHY is this Old Welsh Guy’ I hear you ask, and a damn fine question it is as well 🙂
For those of you who are wondering what on earth PR0 means, I ask you how on EARTH did you find your way hear LOL. The answer is that PR (PageRank) is the system Google uses for measuring the importance of a page (not to be confused with where the page ranks in a search, this is a different beast with over 150 elements combining to decide, with PR being one of them).
Anyhow back to the matter in hand. I have a rugby forum that has been PR zeroed. It still ranks top or close to the top for the phrase ‘rugby forum’ and traffic is as high as ever (in fact it has gone up).
So to those worrying about how they will feed their families now they have lost their PR I say ‘Worry not my friends, for PR is nothing, and Google is currently Updating’.
I will tell you the story of the two Bulls.
Once upon a time there were two bulls. The bulls one day were at the top of hill when the young bull noticed the cows were coming into the field. “why don’t we run down there and make love to one of them cows” said the young bull. ”
“How about we WALK down, and have them all” said the Old bull 🙂
The moral is not to worry, it is a situation that is not harming rankings, so it is nothing to worry about (unless you sell PR based links of course in which case you should be forced to dress up as a cow and meet the two bulls in the story above)
