My site started with PR4. It lasted for 6 months and then it got blacklisted. PR drops to 0. Although I do see still once in a while a GG bot crawling in my site (less frequent than before). I have read about quite a bit of spamming techniques here, such as PRstorm, social bookmarking, RSS submit, etc. I have a few questions for you experts here: 1, Will these technique still help my PR if GG is not even indexing my site? I suppose spamming social and blogs will still bring visitors? and I can still get on GG first few pages through say feed aggregators? 2, can it get worse? (as if i am trying to cure a dead horse) so PR=0 and they are not indexing me, so now if I spam the hell out, can it get even worse? 3, Also the above site is a retail site. Now I am also using the same GG account for adsense for my blog sites. Would that be a problem? It seems that I created several adsense ads and they always show "new" instead of "activated." There has been no adsense ads showing on my site. Sometimes, I was asked to describe my site when creating adsense ads, but most of the time, I was not even asked. Perhaps I am doing something wrong? Thanks for any help.
