It all depends on what people are using to link to you.
Yep, I am using the correct URL.
Weird things today with my google toolbar. My home page is still showing 0 PR but at one point in time it went back to 6 PR, but now at 0 again.
I am just wandering what would be causing this and if I should be alarmed.
Could this be a warning of things to come, or is it a google blip, and maybe the home page will bounce back?
BTW: this is not a new site, been live for well over a year
Just to add to the mix here:
I noticed the backlink update on the 31st of August. Also on that day we plummeted from 10th to the second page and then down to 39th. When I check the logs, I see that the googlebot didn't visit us once on the 31st. That is VERY unusual. Normally we see 20-25 hits(it's a very small site). The updated backlinks show a vast improvment for us and show more backlinks than the sites sitting at the top of the serps for our main keyword.
Also, we made some changes to the text body some two or three weeks ago which added quite a bit of text. I'm thinking of pulling some of that text as my webmaster says that we have too much, much more than the sites sitting at the top. As it stands we have about 2-3% keyword density(from about 5%) and about 900 words in the body. That is about double the words that the top two top sites have.
One of the interesting things about the new backlinks is that we are showing a fairly massive amount of links in blogs. Neither myself or the webmaster added these. Can they drag a site's serp down in the manner we've been hammered?
'Google Pagerank Update WAS today'
ie; Past sense. Because the google pagerank update is always 'Today'.
P.S. With any luck ... the above might make some sense? It's almost 2am and i'm tired... :p
ignore it. It's a mess on my site pages as well.
recently, all the pages in my site have been looking a rather skinny 4 on the tool bar. Yesterday, they were still all 4's but somehow appeared a little fatter - close enough for me to check that hadn't gone all 5 on me.
Today, skinny 4's again.
My traffic is up another 10%, SERPS since the weekend and it's coming from Google. The SERPS have changed at times - don't know whether we went backwards again today.
Something is a foot...
could anyone help me with this, all the 50 or so pages on my site show a PR5, well as far as I can see all (most of) other websites have their index page ranked one point higher than the inner pages.
I do see the back links change frequently but the PR for my site has stayed a foot for more then 1 year now all the 50 odd pages have PR5.
