|My site suffered a PR drop from 5 to 0?|
Almost over night, one of my product page's PR drop from 5 to 0.
At first, I thought it might be Google's datacenter updating delay. But two days passed, PR remained 0, strangely, all other pages no affected at all.
I checked the "problem" page:
1. There were totally 140+ links, only 1 outbound link;
2. No keywords stuffing
3. The page still shown in Google SERP
I have no idea what happened, should I just ignore it?
If the page is still getting search traffic from Google at the same level, yes, I would ignore it.
thanks tedster for the answer:)
I think I would do some more digging to find out the reason why there is a drop.
I do understand - but I'd also suggest that if your traffic quantity and quality has not suffered, then spending a lot of energy diagnosing toolbar PR may not bring you a good return on your time investment.
However, if it looks like Google has flagged you as selling do-follow links when you aren't, then that might be important to know.
yep, I wonder if it's a sign Google want us to make some change, and we must prevent the same "punishment" to our other pages.
thanks for that suggestion.
Does your page contain any revenue generating links, if so check those sites for a PR change (up or down). If nothing, then I would agree with Tedster, monitor your page activity and only delve deeper if your activity has been damaged.
There was only one outside link on that page, and I've checked PR for that site, seems like everything is OK.
Anyway, I removed that particular link, just for testing.
How would a -- legitimate -- external link on a page cause that page's PR to drop from 5 to 0?
