My PR drop has pissed me off so much, I've not touched my site today and I've told my lead dev to take the day off and I'll tell the part timers the same later. I'm thinking about selling up and investing in something that doesn't rely on Google.
I had no idea, a PR drop would effect me. Let alone to the point it has. But I really feel like Google has just shat on years of hard work.
I realise it *shouldn't* effect earnings or traffic. But it's still not the point. My competitors don't produce content, they scrape it and then buy links. Yet they're +1. I produce unique content, acquire links naturally and wake up to -2.
It defies all logic. One post I made since the last update, received at least 15 PR5 links, which in itself is more than a new site my brother started, which now has a PR4.
I just don't see the logic. When things become illogical, they become pointless. As there is nothing to aim for. What's the point in continuing to produce great content that acquires links, when Google does #*$! like this.
I seriously feel deflated and demotivated. Defeated maybe.
Google, I detest you.
