Well, it's been awhile since I've been on here. Got caught up in so many other things that life has to offer, unfortunately I am still pursued constantly by people that want web work including family.
About 1 year ago or a bit more I thought I learned the secret to page rank on Yahoo to some degree.
I had a rather saturated keyword on page 2 and another saturated keyword on page 1! Several others, due to the lack of content and a few other things I didn't want to give my all into - caused them to be at pages 3-7, but at any rate - I had resolved much of the mystery it seemed for me.
The funny thing was, that yes yuo can follow the time tested and mother approved methods on here to the T and still end up in the dumps and wonder...why? Hey maybe you hosted wrong, maybe you had the wrong code at the wrong time, or maybe your website was just a BIT too stale OR a bit too dynamic. At any rate, you have to do this day and night for years to have that sixth sense as to why something is or isn't based on a set of 'standards' set for from the community experiences.
Which brings me to my next ...issue? Recently, I noticed a significant decline in two sites that have RSS feeds on them. RSS Feeds seemed to really do me good for a few websites that had information on them - not fake garbage information that so many websites are today, with a million product plugs - and no information. REAL information with real people subscribing to them.
HAS ANYONE experienced a decline in <pr> from removing RSS from your site? The one site is not longer mine thankfully but the current 'owner' has now accused me of shooting down his site because I operate another one similiar. GRRR..
What say thee?
