Have you noticed as much as 2-step drops in the Google Pagerank of various popular sites? Why is this happening? Is this permanent? In the mad scramble, people may have overlooked this other odd development last Oct 23.
It’s understandable why site owners are worried about the pagerank drop (i.e., from PR5 to PR3). Is Google punishing them for selling links? Is this just some kind of internal adjustment?
You might consider checking your web stats, though. Last Oct 23, did you notice a spike in your site’s Pages or Files accessed? I saw that odd behavior across several sites. When I say spike, think 3.5 times higher than your daily average.
Then the following day, Oct 24, you find bloggers writing about the pagerank slap.
I wonder if the sudden page accesses have anything to do with this.
In the meantime, observe your site traffic. Is it going up or dropping? For some, a lower pagerank translates to lower traffic. If you’re in such a group, it’s time to make a few changes in your site.
I wonder if more people will start using the “nofollow” tag in the coming weeks. Stay tuned…
