After the last round of Google Page Ranks, there appeared to be quite a shake up of rankings. Some blogs that were posted higher dropped in ranking for reasons that are not immediately evident. Snoskred at Life in the Country wrote about A Little Competition To Celebrate My Page Rank Drop. In this post she defines the problem she has encountered with Google Page rank:
This time last week, my site www.snoskred.org had a page rank of 4. Now, I seem to have a page rank of 3. I cannot work out why this would be so – all the advertising I have been doing is over at the old site, which continues to have a page rank of 4. However Wendy Piersall reports that Mommybloggers seem to have been hit. If that’s the case, perhaps someone should let Google know I have kitties, and not kids!
Then Snoskred steps up to the plate and outlines a competition celebrating her page rank drop.
– Write about the competition on your blog and link back to my blog however you like in that post – you receive 5 entries (be sure to comment on this post with a link to your post so I can make sure you get your entries)
– Comment here on the blog – you receive 1 entry. You can comment as many times as you like during the month. Each comment = 1 entry
– I will be putting entries into the prize drawing bowl daily.
On the 14th of December, I will draw the winners.
Now you may be thinking – hey it’s already the 14th in New South Wales when this is being posted. I am not concerned with entering the competition, I am posting this for a couple of reasons:
- I consider Snoskred to be a friend who writes good, interesting content.
- I believe that people should be made aware of good content regardless of their Google Page Rank.
- Link Karma is good.
On her blog Snoskred documents one of her favorite past times ‘scambaiting’ and has weekly guest posts from other bloggers. She also documents her life in the country in Australia.
Snoskred’s competition epitomizes the spirit of ‘When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” and it is this attitude along with her content that I am happy to recommend “Life in the County” as good reading.
