Sudden drop in PageRank - Any experiences?
There's something that's been bugging me for some time now and I can't seem to figure it out.
I've had a few PR4 and PR3 sites go to PR2 in the latest update. The weirdest thing happened to one of them in particular:
1. Site becomes PR4 solely through article submissions via article marketer
2. I start hand-submitting to SEO friendly web directories with PR (non-recips)
3. Site becomes PR3
4. Continue submitting articles through isnare
5. Site becomes PR2
Since there are a lot of article marketers in this forum, I was just wondering if this has happened to anyone before.
Thanks in advance!
P.S: Not that I believe that article marketing is no more, but apart from article marketing, link baiting, reciprocals, blog comments & directory links, does any1 know of any other way to get some free backlinks? It's always good to diversify...
