Just when I had all but given up on this Blogger blog for several reasons -- one of which is that is loads so slowly, hopefully my dropping it down to the normal Google crawl rate will fix that -- Google has encouraged me to not give up!
Yesterday I noticed my waning hits on this blog were growing again, and I figured out it was because Google unpenalized me!
See -- if you do a Google search for "Paula Mooney," this blog shows up as #1 again.
Was John Chow Unpenalized Too?
I see that John Chow is still penalized by Google, because a Google search on "John Chow" only turns up the "John COW" parody site, and not his own.
Not that this is hurting him, with all that moola he's making.
(And wow, catching up with his posts, I see the Chow-man is going to be featured in an upcoming issue of Entrepreneur magazine!)
Speaking of the evil genius, I was wondering who his private advertisers are -- and how he got $11,888.79 in private ad sales.
I wonder if those are more secure or less secure than Google Adsense?
Why Did Google Penalize Then Unpenalize Me?
I don't really know why Google penalized me in the first place, but I'm glad it was only temporary.
It actually helped me change my focus off this blog and onto my niche sites -- which God has used amazingly to open up the heavens unto me. (Just wait till you see the income numbers I post up this Saturday.)
Anyway, so I'm saying all this to say that if you're one of the ones that Google dropped the PageRank down to zero because of PayPerPost (for one or all of your websites,) or if they've penalized you -- don't despair, they could reverse their decision.
And though people may get frustrated with the Big G's rules and hand-slapping, I'm still lovin' Google Adsense right now -- heck, they just helped me pay my entire American Express bill this month.
