When I went to visit my blog a few days earlier, I discovered that I have gained pagerank. I started at PR 0 and now I am PR 3. Hooray for me!!! Everyone should check their google page rank to know if they have been promoted or demoted.
The effect on the blog
As of now, I don’t see any new effects on having a page rank of three. That is because I don’t have any advertising that takes into account a blog’s page rank in determining the advertisement prices. But for those bloggers who uses Text Link Ads, it is a big factor in their text link ads prices.
Page rank controversy
There seems to a controversy with the Google page rank algorithm. Several big time bloggers have seen their page rank decrease whether they were selling text ads or not. For a list of affected bloggers, check out this link. We do not know what’s happening and this looks like something only Google would know. ^_^
