    i don't know but it seems like this PR update has something against forums.

    My month old micro niche site with just 7 pages of content is now PR1 from PRn/a and my forum with nearly 10,000 indexed pages dropped to PR1 :(

    I've seen some pretty erratic results with PR at this change...

    There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason. None of my tracked SERPS rankings have changed; and about half the PR's have gone up and half have gone down.... go figure!

    My main site went from 5 to 2.

    My newest site, roughly a month old went from NA to 3. Strange.

    Who gives a shit?

    This isn't DP.

    Goes to show how pointless PR is. I don't know anyone who has their income correlated to PR. I have no idea what the PR on any of my sites is.

    Dude, high pr = lots of easy link money. I sold/sell so many high pr links on my sites that I probably earn more on link selling than most people here earn on adsense/anything else.

    Basically your ignoring poteltial income if your ignoring your PR value DP or not.

    I've even sold low pr links / posts(pr3) on niche sites for 125$ / yearly
    Talk about easy money there.

    Now raise your hand if you dont want to earn easy money...

    Yep selling links is one way, I didn't really need to add that part.

    What I really meant is: does anyone give a shit that BHW's page rank dropped? Opening a thread about it is the kind of thing they do on DP.

    I've noticed that when PR changes occur, there's a lot of silly changes. You might notice PR drop for a week or two and then shoot up or vice-versa. Could be a perm change too, and in that case, google is stupid!

    Agreed. This is clearly the beginning of the end for BHW. I'm going to start posting at Digital Point instead. I hear it's a quality forum full of really useful information.
