I was staring at LornaTimbah.com a few moments ago thinking about which post I wanted to blog first, when I noticed something quite shocking on my Google toolbar — LornaTimbah.com is already ranked 4!
Thinking that there might be a problem with my toolbar, I double-checked with other PR engines as well as Firefox’s SEO plugin. My eyes did not deceive me.
After a while, I figured I know why it gained PR so fast. I hazard a guess that since I parked the domain to point to WebGrrrl.net for awhile, LornaTimbah.com somehow inherited this blog’s PR.
I know, I know, you’re saying that WebGrrrl.net is only PR2. In fact, WebGrrrl.net should rightfully be, and had been, PR4 at some point, but Google penalized my rank for something that I may or may have not been aware of (I’m still waiting on their answer to my reconsideration).
I may never know the real reason for this spike of PR, maybe some of you SEO experts out there could shed some light on this matter. I suspect that this rank may change back to 0 soon, but that’s OK.
