Who moved my pagerank (aka cheese)

I am currently reading Who Moved My Cheese. It is a rather corny book that I regretted buying. But then, my lecturer in the course I am taking, psycho-spirituality said it is a good book that talks about change. So, like the gullible person that I am, I spend RM29.90 on a really thin book with large fonts.

Here’s a short video I made the other day about me and things that cheesed me off :

I don’t know but I somehow relate the Who Moved My Cheese to Who Moved My Pagerank. As you can see, my pagerank was taken away recently. At other times, I would be terribly depressed and will analysed what when wrong, work around the clock to get it back and appeal to Google and such.

However, I don’t seem to care anymore. Now, I use only Safari on my iMac and Google Chrome on my Vista laptop. So, I don’t see any freaking non-existence green juice on Firefox to cheese me off. I have also reduced my online making money stuffs but concentrate of the web administration of two sites (that don’t belong to me but some organisations). Apart from that, I am either busy video filming, editing or spending time of my own.

The book on Who Moved My Cheese is about four mice who deal with changes. There are two who moved on as soon as a cheese station dries up. One Hem refused to do anything but live in constant fear. One Haw made some feeble attempts after being starved. I want to adopt the approach of the other two mice who constantly move on.

Who knows, video blogging will be the next big thing (it is already) and I could make money from them one day?

So, to those who have traits of Hem and Haw, try using Safari, Opera, Explorer, Chrome so that you don’t see the blardy green tool that boosts your ego when you have it and deflated your ego when it is gone, at Google’s fancy.

    webpage rank is very important. you have to look carefully into these because this can make people see your page especially if you are in the top 10. one even uses ANCHOR TEXT to promote their page. (www.kika.ca)

    LOL! You filmed this by the poolside?? Were there people gawking and being curious about what you were doing? I love swimming too but unfortunately I haven’t swam in like… forever. The last I went was back in `06! You look really comfortable speaking in front of the camera BTW. Your pacing was good. So I guess you DID overcome your fear after all. CONGRATULATIONS!

    Rank is nothing but a bunch of guide for advertiser to have a look on your site before advertising. If you do not make money with blog, then it’s not important. It’s better to not be a slave of pagerank.

    Google don’t like Text Link Ads, isn’t?

    By the way, I watch this video “Who Moved My Cheese” at a MLM seminar before. Not so special and very straightforward but meaningful also.

    I have websites with a high page rank that get no traffic and websites with low page rank that get heaps of traffic. In terms of internet traffic pagerank is really not the number 1 factor.

    Hey Lilian,

    great that you tried out the video cam. You’ll get better with practice. Recently I did some videos too, initially will require many takes, ha ha. but with the webcam.

    Btw, what camcorder r u using?

    Pagerank is very unpredictable and it doesn’t give the direct result of what we do in our website.

    everbody raved about Who Moved My Cheese aound the time of I was implementing ISO9001 in a particular software development organisation – I thought it might give me some unsights about managing the change with the several hundred staff … so i had to read it … what a pile of drivel … i kept going thinking “its gotta get better…” – sadly I was wrong – it only took about and hour to read but that was one hour totally wasted. A resounding zero out of ten.
