Hongkiat.com and Sabahan.com lost their PR 5/10 too?


Hey, did Hongkiat.com get Google bomb? Because I couldn’t locate his blog when I search for hongkiat.com. I know he used to have a PR 5/10 but it looks like he got a PR 4/10 now.


Sabahan is another PR 5/10 blog and looks like he got a PR 4/10 now.

Now, there was a lot of theories about not writing paid post and not selling text links ads. Both Hongkiat and Sabahan did not do that. On my personal blog, I also didn’t do much paid posts. However, I sold a lot of text link ads on my PR 4/10 blogs and some of them even have a string of paid posts. None of those blogs were smacked by Google. Yet, why did my personal blog chanlilian.net, Hongkiat.com and Sabahan.com got smack?

So, looks like only Grandma Google knows what she is doing because all our theories did not work.

Interesting PR updates, eh?

Jeng, jeng, jeng…..I wonder how many of us are going down with Grandma Google?

*squeezing brain juice on what niche to focus on my sole surviving PR5/10 blog which is an aggregator now?*

    My blog: blogging secret also kena smack, cabai google, let me kena kao kao this time. @@ Aunty, will your income decrease when pr 5 to pr 4? I damn sian now, no mood eat and sleep, so leave a comment here.

    As my personal thought, I think google smack those who are blogger, and have write on sponsored reviews. Sabahan got write some, hong kiat got write some, they all write those posts which are $100. I think your chanlilian also same, that’s why kena. (John is not run away from this, and also include my blog)

    In short, we cannot exchange links,submit to directories,paid links,reviews links and so on…if not, all will become pr 4. Is that my prediction correct?

    I am still waiting for my personal blog to get a PR. Or did it get a PR0? LOL. Is that possible?

    So there is a pattern. Heavy PPP and sponsored post sites no changes. But others dropped 1 PR.

    Was 5xmom.com a PR4 previously ?? Now I only see it’s PR3.

    All my other blogs have no changes in PR .. yet.

    […] post mentions that Sabahan.com PageRank has dropped from PR5 to PR4. I don’t usually monitor my own PageRank regularly each time […]

    Luckily you never type “going down on Grandma Google”

    Planet Malaysia used to have PR5 but drop to PR4 now :(

    Wait a minute. I write tonnes of paid posts with my PR5 blogspot blog and didn’t kena. Why?! Is the update over? What can I do with my PR N/A new blog! *curses*

    […] a few days ago, I heard the news that John Chow have lost his PR6 status. And Lilian reported that Hongkiat, Sabahan went from PR5 to PR4 and she got PR3 for her […]
