Okay so now I'm kind of motivated to try and build back links and all those stuff we're supposed to do to increase our PR. I'm crossing my fingers that it would be another increase for both my blogs the next time they update,which would be at least several months from now. How about you? Were you affected by today's update? If you were affected, Google says don't fret too much about it if your site's PageRank has gone down or else, not changed in months. I'm serious. Taken from their FAQ:
Don't worry. In fact, don't bother thinking about it. We only update the PageRank displayed in Google Toolbar a few times a year; this is our respectful hint for you to worry less about PageRank, which is just one of over 200 signals that can affect how your site is crawled, indexed and ranked. PageRank is an easy metric to focus on, but just because it's easy doesn't mean it's useful for you as a site owner. If you're looking for metrics, we'd encourage you to check out Analytics, think about conversion rates, ROI (return on investment), relevancy, or other metrics that actually correlate to meaningful gains for your website or business.
