So, for the past year I’ve been happily blogging along, minding my own business, knowing that at the bottom of my page sat a little box stating Woven by Words had a Google Page Rank of 4/10. FOUR out of TEN people. To me, that was awesome.
Somehow, somewhere someone thought I was doing something right.
Then a year passed. Not a thing happened. Everyone started complaining about their page rank. I didn’t say much other than to agree it would be nice if they updated as often as they said they would, which a year ago we were all under the impression it was quarterly.
Then just around a week or so ago someone posted in one of the blogger groups I’m part of that Google PR had update their numbers. Of course I rushed to my blog to see if I had made it to a 5, not even expecting it, but who knew. I went and saw that I was still at a 4.
To me, a page rank of 4 is totally respectable. The next thing I know people are coming back to the group saying their page rank went down…down I tell ya. I was breathing a sigh of relief knowing I’d looked and I was at a solid 4.
HA! Good times never last, do they? The love grows cold some time.
Tonight I was going to try to join a campaign with another blogger and they needed bloggers with a page rank of 4. Well, that’d be me ma’am! On a whim I checked my blog to see that I was at a 4. I mean, I would be, right? I’d just checked it a week ago.
Then again, someone mentioned Google was going through another round of updates so I figured, eh, what the heck, lets check it.I should’ve just stayed in my little ignorant bubble because guess what? I was the victim of reduction! Woven by Words was lowered from a 4 to a 3. No explanation. Not note on the mantle telling me what I’d done or not done to ruin what we had. The 4 was gone. Replaced by a 3.
Why yes, those ARE real crocodile tears. Who wouldn’t cry like that after learning about this travesty?a THREE I tell you. Where’s the justice? I want a do over, a recount, is there a panel of judges I can talk to?
You took away my foooooour! Did your Google Page Rank go up or down in their recent updates? Does anyone know where we can go to protest? “Heck no, I want more. I wanna go back to my 4.” So, this is how I’m going to sit, for the next day as I hold a grudge against Google and their stinkin’ page rank. Care to join me? Fine Google. Take back your 4. I didn’t want it anyhow. (Ok, yes I did so I’ll gladly take it back)
