    Hey all,

    So I was compiling my lists of different types of High PR websites I can submit content to and...

    When I was compiling article directories, I came across EzineArticles (once thought to be the best site for article SEO purposes) and doublechecked its PR with SEOQuake.

    It used to be a 5 for sure (i think maybe even 6)...

    but now its page rank is N/A!

    Does this mean that google has completely devalued all the site's content now? Do you guys think its now useless to even post to ezinearticles?

    I know they took a big hit with Panda and have changed some policies, but what do you guys think?

    Am I missing something? (And before you ask, yes my SEOQuake is the latest version and checking PR with the proper server). Thoughts?

    Hmmm, I just noticed it too when I read your post. All my articles with PR were gone, too. Checked it with SEO Quake as well and Search Status, PR=N/A.

    edit:

    I checked here;
    Code:
    http://www.prchecker.info/check_page_rank.php
    and
    Code:
    http://www.checkpagerank.net/index.php
    It is still showing PR6. Not sure which one is correct.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    What do you expect? There are thousands and thousands of people scraping content from Ezine. Duplicate content is everywhere now. 90% of internet marketers spin their content from Ezine.

    The Panda hit them hard. Goodbye Ezine.

    It's N/A for quite a while now. I really loved EZ a while ago when they had their HAHD and gave you presents for :)

    I agree its dead in the water, they took a real battering but based on logic it makes total sense. As As said lots of peeps scrap various shit from it and repspin hence lots of dup content.

    Its had its day, its finished.

    Hmm. I wonder why some people are still getting PR 6 and others N/A - the whole argument about scraped/dup content makes sense to me. Ahh well. there's still loads of high pr article directories out there.

    google-pr [dot] net and checkyourpagerank [dot] com also not showing a PR.

    I'm guessing the sites that still show PR6 may have a cached version of PR database and will get updated soon.

    Compared to what? Article sites that auto approve submissions? I've seen alot worse.

    Hey guys, I'm a n00b here.

    According to my Google Chrome SEO plugin, Ezinearticle's home page has a PR of 6, but every page *below* the home page that I've visited shows a zero. So how much of that 6 from the home page passes through to a category, to an article, and through the back-link to your money site?

    Yes, I think ezinearticles is an old strategy that doesn't have the power it used to have. Would spend my time elsewhere.

    If i remember in last update Twitter was Pr0, FB PR10 and big G PR9, but it was fixed after a little time.
    So i think EzineArticles will regain its PR.
