This past weekend, as I browse through the sites I regularly visit, I noticed something…Some had a decrease in Pagerank, some totally lost it all and some were so lucky to have an increase in rankings. Perhaps it’s true that there was a minor Google Update this past few days or maybe it was “The Update” we are all waiting for..Mine didn’t change at all..it’s okay, at least I didn’t lose it.
Well, anyway, this isn’t about the PR update. It’s about choosing between MONEY or RANKINGS. Some of the sites I visit make lots of money every month and doesn’t care about their Pagerank. Maybe for them, as long as they’re continuously earning, they are happy.
I started this blog to make me some money. All I wanna do is make money and more money *lol*..Well, I made a few hundred dollars before my Blogger blog was flagged. I had so many Paid To Click sites and other money making programs that it took me a few hours to finish them all. I had quite a handful of referrals to help me earn.. When I migrated to WordPress, I decided to just retain some of the best and stable PTCs and a few affiliate programs.
All things changed when I got my Pagerank. I suddenly got scared of losing it. I feel that I have worked so hard and that I deserve it. But then, I’m not making the same amount of money that I used to earn. So, that’s not quite what I want to achieve too.
Therefor, I have come to terms with myself *lol*..I wanna make more money and I can only do that by joining some other money making opportunities and return to the sites I was once a member, that is if they have not become scam sites..yet..lol..BUT, if I can make my PR stay or even higher, I would be so happy! I have also seen some blogs who are earning and yet Google blessed them with high PRs. So, I jsut have to think of ways on how to achieve that..lol..
I’d try not to piss Google by putting so many affiliate sites. I hope the Big “G” would understand that Stay at Home Moms need to earn too. 🙂
So what’s your take? Would you prefer Money or Rankings?
