I know you all are eagerly waiting for Google PageRank update and regularly having an eye on your PageRank meter.
Well, last time I wrote an article, “Google decided not to update PageRank”. It was a pure fiction and I can bet that it was a first fiction article in SEO industry. I got lots of positive and negative feedback for it. I accepted all feedback from a positive mindset. Thanks for providing me your feedback for that article.
Although it was only my imagination but it is a coincidence that Google has not updated PageRank since then. It was scheduled in May first week (based on historic data of Google PageRank update).
Coming back to the topic, I know you all are waiting for PageRank Update since May 2013.
Your PageRank can decrease in this PageRank Update
My sixth sense says that most of us can see a drop in their blog page ranking as compare to last PageRank update.
Flood of rel=”Nofollow” – In last four months Google has released updated version of Panda and Penguin; apart from these two a multi week update is still rolling out.
People have so much fear of Google in their mind that they have made most of their outgoing link ‘nofollow’ to avoid any Google penalty.
Now give it a thought:- You have made all your outgoing link nofollow that means you are not passing any link juice to other websites but same thing is done by other bloggers and websites owner who were passing the link juice to your domain in the past.
So effectively you are getting very low link juice and we all knows that number of quality backlinks directly affect your page rank.
Moving Away from CommentLuv and default WordPress Commenting System
Another big example is most of the blogger and website owner is moving away from CommentLuv plugin (Although I am still using it) and wordpress default commenting system because they don’t want to give any backlink to anyone.
Above both points strongly supports my logic.
What you think? In which direction online web world is going? Why we are so afraid?
