Struck By The Dreaded Pr0
Posted 31 July 2003 - 10:57 AM
But now time has passed and I'm a bit worried that this is a permanent thing.
I went over the site and checked if I had committed any obvious abuse, but couldn't find much, save for a title description that wasn't descriptive. I removed most of the meta content, including alternate texts for a few days, to see if that made any difference. Apparently it didn't.
I did a link search and it doesn't credit me for more than two back links. I know there should be several other.
The home page is indexed and turns up in a keyword search, but only the home page and the contact page seems to have been included. (I'm aware of the "don't use 'id=' " debate elsewhere, and am looking into how to get around that).

Google has 22 of your pages in its index, and for the search term, Netjournalist til leje, which I took from your index page title you are ranking #1 in Google.
Forget about a PR0 for you site.
The Google toolbar PR has been shakey for some time now and seems that this may continue for awhile. Concentrate on your rankings and site optimization and you should be fine.

Since then, we've remained at PR4 (with interior pages mostly at 3) and rankings are up on all of our kw phrases, traffic is way up, as are bookmarkings, subscriptions, backlinks, and positive email feedback. We don't actually sell anything, so I can't talk directly about profits.
Ok, so there's a big difference between a PR4 and a PR0, but I still say that you needn't worry too much about it. Concentrate on improving and adding to your content, getting more good, popular sites to link to you, and all that other important stuff.

(Assuming you're not doing anything to trick the search engines.)

I'm coediting a newsletter on online publishing, and I'll be sure to mention this forum in the next edition.
Looking forward to return the favor,

Uhm...which site are you on?
Your home page has little content and lists as "UNTITLED DOCUMENT"

I have to disagree !
I have a brand new site with pr0 (white bar) and I am showing two back links in the new G index

Jill - One of my sites appears to have a PR0, but the site appears under some obscure searches and google shows backlinks to my site (almost 300 of them).
Is this PRO just an anamoly, or might be site really being penalized?
