Page Rank Slam of Oct 2007 – A Slogan for Bloggers
October 25, 2007 - Written by Gyutae Park
As you may know, many well-known and popular blogs and authoritative sites have been hit by a page rank slam the past couple of days. Some of these sites include Forbes, The Washington Post, Engadget, and Search Engine Roundtable just to name a few. Why did this happen? Well, there are many theories floating around but it seems like this is a warning from Google to sites selling or buying links or engaging in link practices that attempt to manipulate search engine results. However, despite the decrease in PR, these sites have the same level of traffic, if not more. We’ll see how this pans out, but for now this just looks like a scare tactic by Google to keep webmasters from selling links and to turn the whole link brokering industry upside down.
Anyway, Darren Rowse over at Problogger is hosting a competition for a Page Rank slam slogan. The point is to lighten the mood, have some fun, and make the most out of an unfortunate situation. Here’s my entry below:
