I’d heard from Tony Hung at Deep Jive Interests that there has been another PageRank update, and out of curiosity I went online and checked the page rank of my blog, https://xidey.wordpress.com. I was very, VERY surprised to see a PageRank of 5, whereas before whenever I’d checked it, I saw a big fat goose egg.
5 is very respectable. Deep Jive Interests, which I’ve been reading since I started blogging, got dropped to a 3. Andrew Chen, another very respectable blogger, is at 4. Brier Dudley is a 3. John Cook is a 4.
Is it because I don’t have advertisements? Dunno, but I’m excited about the spike in traffic I’m already seeing. I’m going to stick to my knitting, whether my PageRank goes up or down, because I’m ultimately blogging for myself (and you), not Google.
But for the moment I’m very pleased.
