    This is my first post in a while, I have been busy with projects and spending more time doing instead of reading :p

    But anyway..... I had a site that I was doing some serious SEO work back in April and it was doing good and getting 1-2k uniques daily. It was 2 month old site on a 1 year old domain and then I guess I did too many profile + comment blasts because the site got thrown back into page 10 for my main keyword and seemed to never come out of page 10.....


    So I waited and I waited and nothing happened for about 2 months to which I forgot about the site and stupidly let the hosting suspend.

    Then funny I was just reading BHW a few days ago about a PR upgrade and wanted to see what the domain was at now and to my AMAZEMENT IT WAS A PR4 now... It jumped from PR0-PR4 in one update....


    I was simply amazed and I activated my hosting again and thank god they backed the site up because now i'm goign to start working on it again and try to get it ranked on page 1!!!


    But my only question is, will a PR4 site have an easier time getting to PG1 even if it spent so much time in pg10 spot with no content updates or anything for about 2 months?

    Probably not going to make all the much if any difference. For one PR and rankings are two different things. For two even though Google only updates the toolbar occasionally, internally they update it on a fairly consistent basis. That PR 4 you see is a snapshot of a particular time while google is looking at the movie.

    Probably right, but feels good and I will give it a nice blast and see what that does.

    Feels good to see work finally pay off
