One of the hard lessons I’m learning about blogging over the years is that you really need to just keep writing. I actually have a lot to say…blogger’s block isn’t something I suffer from. But I’m never quite sure if what I have to say is what my readers want to read. And so I haven’t written in a long, long time.
The possible result? I lost ALL of my PageRank. Just last month I had a PR4, but this month it’s dropped to PR0. I’m not one to really watch my PR, and I don’t like allowing any one entity to, in effect, “own” the blogosphere. But I have to admit that I’m a little unthrilled at losing my PR.
I’ve heard all about Google dinging sites for having sponsored posts (I have several, but I thought my disclosure policy was pretty clear), and I’ve heard that it’s not a bad idea to keep adding fresh content.
So, here I go adding fresh content. And I’ve made all my comments no-follow. Maybe that’ll start to make a difference. Or maybe there’s a glitch in the matrix and I’ll get my PR back just because. Time will tell. In the meantime, I’ll take Dory’s advice and just keep writing.
Have you ever lost PageRank? What did you do to fix it?
