1)I sell products on eBay and I put a little text block on my home page with the link to my ebay About Me page.
2)At the same time, a link that I had been buying each month disappeared (PR5) as the site owner sold the site so it was dropped.
Those were the two changes I did together and within a few days, I had no PR. Could one of those things have done it? I've removed the eBay text block thinking that may have done it.
What can I do now to get some PR back? No one wants to link to me since I have PR0.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
PR is calculated by the relevance and quality of links to your site. The loss of a PR5 link would certainly cause your PR to drop especially if it was only one of a few links to your site.
Do you have PR0 or is the PR bar grey?
It is a hard slog getting good quality links. I would recommend submitting your site to a whole bunch o directories, both free and paid in order to accumulate a few links.
The odd thing is that toolbar PR has not been updated for a while now. It should update soon so I would try to get a few links in if I were you.
