Google slaps PR penalties again

So I was slightly miffed that Google penalised some blog sites with PR bitch slaps, and left mine alone? I should have kept my big mouth shut for now I have been slapped a PR smackdown. I’ve dropped from a 5 to a 4.

Worse still many of my network sites have also been knocked down, and they don’t sell links so that can’t be the reason. Also the theory that removing Adsense could be a reason has been blown out of the water. I couldn’t get more Adsense into some of my sites if I tried. Some of my sites are on the same IP address and are interlinked, so maybe that’s the real issue here. Google doesn’t like website incest in this way it seems.

Still, so long as traffic and affiliate earnings are unaffected I’m happy with it. The green bar means little, the green backs mean more 😉
