The nonsense behind Google and their Pagerank thing. This week has being one of the horrible weeks in my blogging life  and of course I have learnt my lessons. Let me give you one advise, if something is too good to be true, don’t try it all, not all that glitters is gold. My story with going in for one particular web host can just fill in this page and will be more likely to drive us away from what I intend discussing.

Google and their Pagerank Nonsense! Yes, that is the topic on board. Pagerank is one the most sought after,  many people especially bloggers ran after it. But are they indeed worth it?

I learnt there was an update yesterday and it was really amazing what was trending on my bloggers Facebook  timeline. So many of them were disappointed like  what my good friend Little Johnny went through after his exams. He scored zero but was the mark zero really what he deserved? 

Come on, check out those questions and have a look at the answers Little Johnny provided.

Q.1- In which battle did Tipu Sultan Die ?..

Ans.- In his Last Battle..

Q.2- Where was the Declaration of Independence Signed?

Ans.- At the Bottom of the Page..

 

Q.3- What is the Main Reason for Divorce ?..

Ans.- Marriage..

 

Q.4- Ganga Flows in which State ?..

Ans.- Liquid State..

 

Q.5- When was Mahatma Gandhi Born ?..

Ans.- On His Birthday..

 

Q.6- How will you Distribute 8 Mangoes among 6 People ?..

Ans.- By Changing them into Juice!!!

Hahahaha! If Little had zero after providing such intelligent answers, why then must you worry about Google and their Pagerank thing.

Many bloggers having being waiting for this pagerank thing and were more than eager to check theirs when they heard of the update.

There is something funny about Pagerank. Do you know basis upon which they are calculated? I tried reading about thing some months back and my head went way-wire! I was more than confused.

There is a general misconception that  a higher pagerank is likely to bring in a great number of advertisers knocking on your door begging to advertise on your blog.

Where from that? This is indeed something I completely doubt. I think I always do say this, my first private advertiser was on my blogspot blog was more interested in what I had to offer and not what pagerank was telling him.

This domain name- (kabenlah.com) got a pagerank of 1 whiles it was  at parking whiles others delivering the contents were dropping. But here it is delivering in the contents and its pagerank is still 1. Is this not funny enough?

This email for instance was from an advertiser wanting to advertise on my blog.

Hey Emmanuel, 

 

Good job on your awesome blogging here at Kabenlah.com I see some

of your articles have been shared on ****.com and our contributors

are regular readers and commenters on your blog. 

 

I am the owner of ****.com and would like to hold a long term

advertising spot on your Kabenlah.com blog. 

 

The advertising spots I am interesting are the 468×60 top banner as 

well as the other 300×250 below posts spots. Since this is going

to be a long term deal where I pay monthly for the spot…..

 

NB-* The message has being edited with ***.com replacing the real site and … representing the continuation.

There is one thing which is clear about advertisers. They are more interested in what you have to deliver and not what pagereank is telling them.

I intend sharing another email though but had to put it on hold since I don’t want to be seen exposing my  clients or trying to brag.

The head and tail of all that I want to imply is simple, just ignore pagerank and concentrate on what you can do best. The reward will obviously come in plenty-folds.

Your turn now!

Is Pagerank indeed worth the hype? Let the argument flow by commenting below.
