Hey! I am sure you are all aware of last week’s PageRank update. Yeah, it happened. And even though Google recently told us to stop concerning ourselves with PR so much, I’m still going to check out how my sites are doing. I dunno. I know Toolbar PR is way old and outdated and such, but I don’t care. Old habits die hard, right?
Is anyone else out there seeing massive increases in the PageRank for their Twitter account(s). I have about 100 accounts, and I’m noticing all sorts of good stuff. Primarily, I am not the owner of several PR5 Twitter accounts. Many of these have only a few status updates, and they are all less than a year old. I mean seriously. I have several PR4 Twitter accounts that only have ~200 followers. That is wild. I’ve done some checks on other domains, but the recent PR update didn’t seem to have any major effects on PR for typical sites. I could be speaking too soon on that one. I guess we’ll hear more about the effects of this PR update in the next few weeks. But really, why am I seeing massive PR increases for Twitter? Does Google really like real-time status updates that much? Anyone need any links from Twitter? 😉
