Well, after all my hard work to get themed recip links, I got the reward of a PR drop from PR3 down to PR1. So I have decided just to watch the Alexa toolbar. My traffic rating keeps moving up every week. I have no Google traffic, only Yahoo and MSN and some Altavista, etc. 800 page quality site. I obviously do not understand linking for PR purposes. So since I am so stupid, I have no choice but to ignore the Google toolbar. I have built a few sites over the last years and NEVER had a prob with PR. I do not know WHAT they did but the PR algo has changed. I see some others with the same problem and dropping from PR6 to PR1 has got to be a REAL BUMMER. Yes, potential link partners STAY AWAY FROM LOW PR SITES. So this kicks a lot of us down. I will keep monitoring webmasterworld to see if HOPEFULLY someone can figure out what Google wants now for PR upgrades. I wish I could ignore Google, but G has most of the traffic. I know, pay to be on page one. Great for those who can do it. Not everyone can afford it.
