I am truly PROUD and AMAZED at the same time, to have been able to get PR3 on my both blogs!
2) My Beach Wedding in Mauritius - was created on the 20th of JULY '08, and sometime September that was (after 2 months), I checked my PR out of curiosity, I was truly stunned and shocked!! At the beginning I just could not believe, and had to redo it plenty times to make sure it was correct and if I used the correct website to check PR before I showed if off on my blog.
Now, if you'll ask me HOW DID I MANAGE TO GET THIS HIGH RANKING?, I could not tell you exactly the secrets of SEO, but I can tell you precisely what I did this period. Do you really want to know? I know you have the idea more or less, surely much more than I do, in optimizing and improving site's ranking. But let me share with you, some practical ways I have ever done to have managed to get this rank, I just hope they all make sense to all of you:
1) On my first month of blogging, I just CONCENTRATED ON WRITING - BEING CAREFUL OF THE KEYWORDS I HAVE HAD TO USE (possible phrase or group of words people might type in when making their research, on every topic you wanted to write about!). Until after few days, I was able to collect decent amount of posts to have been qualified in Google Adsense (that was when I learned on earning money in Google Ads).
"Lesson1: Let Google be aware that you are online everyday, by making updates through writing posts. Think about of billions of people googling anything on the net! READERS ARE OUR TARGET HERE!!"
2) As soon as I was approved, I still maintained on updating my sites every single day and write article at least 1 a day, while VISITING OTHER BLOGGERS' SITES / HAVE EXCHANGED LINKS as many as I could every single day (I tried though busy at work sometimes).
"Lesson2: The more you visit other blogs and send comments, the more you'll get visitors back on your site, which eventually accumulates traffic, which then becomes always a ready-access or front-liner of Googlebot to crawl + backlinks you ought to get in exchanging links!"
3) I did submit my blogs on VARIOUS SEARCH ENGINES and BLOG SUPPORTS/COMMUNITIES, as people use various search engines in making their researches.
I haven't finished just yet, this is just the beginning of this article about HOW TO AVOID OF LOSING PAGE RANKING? Do you think I can afford to loose them, after all the efforts I've been given and mentioned points above I have taken into consideration? Of course not!!!
But how could I, while earning decent bucks in WRITING REVIEWS from advertising companies (like PayPerPost, Smorty, Blogsvertise, SponsoredReviews, BuyBlogReviews, etc)... I have already read from other bloggers, that as soon as you write reviews which obviously requires the "DISCLOSURE POLICY / SITE-WIDE DISCLOSURE", you'll eventually loose your page ranks!! It was only yesterday that I registered on BLOGSVERTISE, and have confirmed the issue myself. It says:
Avoid excessive ads & badges. Avoid "hire me" or "get paid to post" badges, bubbles, and avoid copy & pasted disclosure policies. If you feel obligated to tell your readers that you particpate with blog ad services, use your own words for your disclosure.
Best: Its best/ideal to just completely remove/delete a pre-written disclosure policy you have copied and pasted from other services and put something in your own words. Or better yet just delete the disclosure policy entirely. It is best to not display any "hire me" or "get paid to post" badges.
Lost Pagerank: If you have already lost your pagerank and it fell to zero, it is best to just start a new blog on a new domain/url, and start fresh. It will take a few months for your blog to obtain pagerank again, but if its not full of hire me badges, bubbles, and disclosure policies, it should avoid having its pagerank removed. Check our other help tips for suggestions on increasing your task rates and making your blog more popular.
Again it is best to avoid and delete any type of pre-written copy and pasted disclosure policy.
