BuyBlogReviews said I faked my PR

This is the most insulting e-mail I have ever received:

Lorna Timbah,

Sorry your blog http://webgrrrl.net does not qualify.

There may be several reasons why a blog is rejected.

1 Your domain has a fake PR.
2 Content is adult oriented or has illegal or hate material which is not suitable for a certain community.
3 Not enough content.
4 Promoting spam.

You may resubmit your blog after fixing the above issues.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

I received this note two days ago and I’m still p1ssed off about it. If they had really checked my blog manually before approving it, then they would know that points 2 to 4 is totally ridiculous. As for point number 1, if ever my PR was affected it would be because this site was penalized from its rightful PR by the G-Force itself. I don’t even know how to fake a PR, and I only care that my PageR luckily have stayed the way it is now.

I really feel like giving BuyBlogReviews a middle finger salute, but I’m just not that type of grrrl. I’m thinking that I would reply to the e-mail once my anger recedes a little, and ask them the specific reason behind not approving me. But would it be worth my time?

Spread the love

  1. Hi lorna, I don’t what’s wrong with them, but i took them like 1 and half months just to get my blog approved and i still didn’t make any money with em..

    Hmmmm….

      Really?! I’ve been wondering how good their program is, and I didn’t expect your blog would face any problem getting approved.

      A “hmmm” from me as well…

      • Lorna,

        i think the “Hmmm” explained how good their program is.. lols.. But from what i can see, their system kinda S*** cause everytime you want to bid, new window will open and this is so annoying beside in my opinion they failed to implement the Human Computer interaction standard on their system.

        My blog got approved after i sent them email and ask what is the status and what took them so long to approve my blog.. and less than 24 hours they replied. Congratulations your blog can now start making money..bla bla… but till now…still nothing lols.

    FYI. A faked pagerank is achieved when offending domains use a 301 or 302 redirects that point their sites to sites with a high Pagerank. This is a well known trick in the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) world, but people who aren’t familiar with SEO are most likely to fall for this.

      Well I wonder if any of my pages are doing this, because I sure never knew about the technique until you told me about it. I’m still p1ssed.

      Thanks for the info, tho 🙂

    Well, as for me, I have never even heard of BuyBlogReviews!!!

    • Lorna says:

      My site’s been getting lots of hits from Mashable lately, and I happened to find out about BuyBlogReviews through one of the sites (I forgot which page exactly).

  5. Thats ridiculous. What tools are they using to check PR? I didn’t even know you could fake a PR?

  6. Mark says:

    Mighty Google was dancing (exporting updated PR and backlinks) for a few days about a week ago. When Goolge is dancing, the toolbar and the datacenters often show weird data (PR 0 most often). The guys at BuyBlogReviews was probably not aware of the Google dance.

  7. I’ve gotten similar rejections in the past from various sources. look ahead, to the next income stream, not in the past at times-money-suckers!
