If you have a PR 8 website, and it got dropped down to nothing, what would you do? This is what just happened to Mashable.com, one of my favorite tech sites!
As you could see on their Alexa rankings from yesterday, they went down at -28%... We don't know if BIG G is cooking up something, it might be part of a new Google Algorithm update. What's the moral lesson? Some people say that PR is useless, and has no bearing at all. But, as you could notice, sudden PR drop can also drop the site visit. Take a look at another screenshot below, I just took it a couple of minutes ago...
I've asked SEO experts about this, they said that it could be just a PR bug or something, since, other pages are still on PR 6. It's either their link partners stop linking back to them, which gives them the most PR / Link juice, or, their backlinks got devalued by Google, it could be part of an algorithm update. But, who cares? Mashable is still an authority site. If someone needs to search for Mashable, they don't use keywords anymore to get to the site. People remember Mashable as it is! So, for my fellow Mashable fans out there, I guess, we have nothing to worry for the mean time! Until next time, if you like this post, please, subscribe below. Thanks!
