Should bloggers ask Google to review their PRs? NO.

But you really want to appeal for reconsideration? Some bloggers are thinking about that since you mention and they ask me. I said I dunno, really lah, my case different as my blogs sucks. Your blogs are great and you sure you have to appeal?

I got an email which I think is better I reply here because it will help to answer the questions in most bloggers’ minds. If you ask me if you have any chance of Google reviewing your blogs, my answer is no.

Let’s note that in my last post, I said I will ask for reconsideration for only three blogs of mine :

Make$ Money$
Best Recipe

I invite all those who wants to apply to take a good look at the quality of the three blogs, the traffic and how they rank in the keywords. Therefore, I may ask because those are darn good blogs.

However, I have many blogs that I believe are on par with many paid posties’ blogs. Those blogs are as good as dead. You can kiss your PR goodbye. I have no problem with them because I have back-up plans long time ago. Now is the time to deploy all those at the back burner.

So, in conclusion, if you are writing paid posts and sell text link ads, just forget about the PR. PR is nothing but just a bunch of ego badge.

One thing that I believe many of you do not realise is how easy a person can make a report against another blogger. It is just a few steps of submitting a form to Google, squeal and cause Google to check the site. Back in April, Matt Cutts had written a long post on how to report paid links (which I am not giving the URL here for obvious reason) and that has caused the Medusa effect. (Hehehe, I forgot what is Medusa effect except that I know there are many snakes out there, hence, Medusa) I believe I probably has the longest list of complaint because I yam what I yam (think Popeye).

Final word – Kiss your PR good bye.

    If I am selling links and writing paid posts, how can I forget about PR, they are still being used to value s site’s worth.

    wayne – I never say forget the PR wor. I said kiss the PR goodbye because if you write paid posts and sell text links, it is expected to drop. If you don’t drop now, it will drop next time. But the thing is many of the companies are not using Google PR. For example, nuffnang, linkworth, SR, Argus/PPP and many others.

    gaman – I started with my personal name and someone I branded the 5xmom. I bought the domain and do not know what to do with it and kept it for a while. Then, I started this blog. 5xmom exudes a different personality from this blog. A bit confusing, right?
