I registered two PR 4/10 blogs with SocialSpark. One of them has a RealRank of less than 50. 50 means my blog is the 50th best blog in terms of traffic amongst all the blogs registered with Izea RealRanks.
Looking at that number, I would think that I will have vast opportunities out there for these blogs. But all I see in the marketplace are opportunities value at USD8.25 only. And with titles like ‘SocialSpark is great for mommy bloggers’, and the post requires 250 words, I will give it a pass.
You can use no-follow tags, of course. That’s a bonus. But then, knowing how rabid Google is, I wonder if Google may decide that having no-follow is not good enough and they go around smacking us to PR 0 again, with or without no-follow. Google may turn around and tweak some of their already confusing TOS and tell us that we have once again, breached their policies.
People keep insisting that with or without PR, it makes no difference. It makes a lot of difference, my dear. I have been there in the abyss of disappearing organic traffic or getting kicked to page number god-knows-where in the SERPs.
So, I thought of registering some of my other PR 0 blogs. But yesterday morning, one of the bestest paid post company I worked for sent us an email and gave us an ultimatum. I shall edit a bit of what was being written…’no yadda yadda pop-up banner garbage or you are out of our network’.
Whoa….such strong words. This means I cannot register those blogs in SocialSpark.
And that leaves SocialSpark as a flicker now, instead of the fire that I was expecting.
