It seems there has been a PageRank update, courtesy of Google. I noticed the change yesterday on this blog, just as a few blogs I follow started posting about the updated ranking system.

I’m not going to get into the elaborate debate surrounding PageRank or even explain what it is. If you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about, you can always “Google” it.

Why I Care

For me, PageRank plays an importance in my overall online business. This may sound crazy to some, but regardless of what you may think, PageRank does have a role when it comes to my monthly earnings. To give you an idea why, I suggest reading this post and looking over the “High PR Backlinks” section. You may also be interested in reading this post and this post. And, you can always check out my Income Reports and see how much I make from selling advertising space on this site, which is partially made possible thanks to PageRank.

Okay, so now that we know the Google PR of our sites have been updated, I wanted to share how my sites faired in this update. I currently have three websites in my portfolio, and I’ll also include my blog on the list as well. Let’s take a look at them:

  • PR before update – 4
  • PR after update – 4

Work From Home Blog

  • PR before update – 4
  • PR after update – 3

  • PR before update – 0
  • PR after update – 1

Micro Niche Adsense Site (Not Disclosed)

  • PR before update – NA
  • PR after update – 0

Overall I’m pleased with how things turned out. I’m a bit bummed the blog didn’t fair so well, but hey, nothing I can do about it except continue to post quality content and build quality links.
