There’s a bit of a dust up over on Techmeme about Google reducing the PageRank of some popular sites (like Engadget and TUWA). I don’t even pretend to understand the black voodo magic that is search engine optimization, but I do know that I show up high on quite a few (often random) Google searches and I think that’s due in large part to my PageRank, which is an 8. (You can check yours here)
Supposedly this new downgrade is due to paid links, something most people in the Adobe community won’t have to worry about. But since this is coming up, I wanted to see what some of you guys’ PageRanks are. I’ve always thought that having MXNA (which is a PageRank of 10) constantly linking to us made a difference. But MXNA actually hides the link behind identifiers so I’m not sure that makes any difference at all. In that case maybe it’s just weblogs.macromedia.com or blogs.adobe.com (both PageRank 10) that make a difference. So those of you blogging about Adobe stuff, what’s your page rank?
