PR4 in just a week!

I was staring at a few moments ago thinking about which post I wanted to blog first, when I noticed something quite shocking on my Google toolbar — 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 for awhile, somehow inherited this blog’s PR.

I know, I know, you’re saying that is only PR2. In fact, 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.

Spread the love

      I’ve just checked using the site you recommend. Alas, it shows a PR4 in red, which means that it’s a fake PR. Someone mentioned to me that this is a fluke, and I believe that’s the case.

      Still, I’m curious as to why this sort of thing can happen.

    Yeah, why are page ranks usually false?

    Congratulations on the PR, for some of us it takes a little longer to get a PR4. Great Job.

    That is pretty weird. One of my sites went from having no PR to a PR 1. It looks like they may have done a intermediate PR update. As long as you are getting more traffic, I wouldn’t worry about it too much.
