Is PayPerPost aka IZEA really going to remove Google PR and use Yahoo backlinks?

I am so out of touch with the make money online latest news. My whole head is spinning with all the excitement, humour, suspense, thriller and drama that Malaysia politics and Malaysian politicians bring. Yeah, I know people see politics and elections as something serious and important. I see politics as mudslinging and bitch slapping fest and I love it! I get to put a finger in and I know I won’t get into trouble if I play with my words correctly. I get traffic spike, an increase of 90 subscribers within 2 days, a realrank of 10 and of course, ads income as well. So sez who politicz ‘r’ boring?

I finally get a chance to log into IZEA Boards and found that they have a spanking new forum. While looking through the threads, I found this good news :

Ted mentioned that they are aware of :

The top three issues we saw complaints about:
1. Get rid of Google PR (blogger issue)
2. More control over blog segmentation and selection of bloggers (advertiser issue)
3. The boards are not as friendly, open or as useful as they were in the past (blogger and advertiser issue)

I missed the survey but here are my responses to the issues :

1) I 100% support the removal of Google PR as requirements
2) Advertiser issue so none of my business
3) Correct, correct, correct. Saya mangsa penderaan anjiiing betinas di sana kerana hendak mempertahankan maruah, air muka dan standard beruk-gers dari negara kita. Saya masuk dalam bilik sulit yang spesel mia di mana kebanyakan orang tak ada eksklusif rights. Heh, kamu semua tak boleh nampak bahagian forum yang tersembunyi itu. Tapi percaya lah, bila saya bukak mulat saja, pasti kena hentam. Sebentar tadi, saya tulis saya pergi kencing di dalam sebagai petunjuk yang saya masih hidup lagi di forum tersembunyi itu. Heh.

Our (IZEA) response to these top issues is as follows:

1. We are now in the process of removing Google PR from PPP entirely, this has been fast tracked. PR is going to be replaced with backlink count. It is not a small change, it will take a few weeks given developer resource constraints.

You can read the whole post by Ted Murphy on the removal of Google PR and replacing with Yahoo backlinks as part of the requirement to take an opp.

Here are some of my blogs Yahoo Backlinks :

Make Money : 15,845

5xmom : 21,417

You can check your Yahoo backlinks from this site.

Now, if IZEA comes up with no-follow tags, I will once again rulez the paid post arena. Woohoo! This change of Google PR to Yahoo is good news too because I still do paid posts on many of my other blogs.

The above is the link to join IZEA if you are not afraid to ‘die’. :P For those of us who have blogs which are Google smacked, this means good news as we can once again make money writing paid posts. It is one of the best way to make money blogging.

    I think Google is making a punishment to all PPP-ers but it is funny as advertisers still based on PR then no more

    I signed up with PPP, but soon all my available opportunities disapered. A quick check answered my questions: PR0. However traffic didn’t get hurt at all.

    The bad thing is, a lot of other advertisers also base their payment on PR. So I’m gonna kick all PPP articles of my blog and hope PR comes back again.
