What poll are you talking about actually?

Any SEO worth their shirt on their back would need to look a little deeper than just PR.

Out of curiosity, this site with the PR=5 – what is the Page Title or link of this site? would you care to post it?

Too many people are caught up in the confusion plus there are SEO folks out there that exploit it to sell their service.

Would the ‘average’ Google user really miss it?

But I did go to a blog I contribute on and was shocked at what I saw a PR of 5, something I have been trying to get for years. The blog is not even a year old has 91 backlinks in Google compared to my 190ish links, I was seriously freaked out. But it seems I am not alone in this confusion thank god.

Also my resources page dropped from PR 5 to PR 0. I noticed redflymarketing is down from 7 to 6 now. Seems something strange is going on anyhow.

That’s my goal, not the figure showing in a small green bar.

Negativity is toward the way Google is treating the webmaster community in general, and the SEO community in particular. At a micro level many of the Googlers are fantastically helpful, but at the macro level Google has has lost the plot IMO.

And what’s the chances that youtube.com got a hand job?

They are strange examples David, just goes to show that PR is BS.

Richard : negativity , is probably due to people thinking they deserve higher PR. ;)

On the other hand, my traffic hasn’t changed one bit. It’s up slightly in fact!

Is it just me, or does anyone else sense a huge amount of negativity in the webmaster community toward Google?

Cheers for dropping by David,

This thread that I started at da point received over 400 natural links including some authority ones:

http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=461494

This page got a PR3.

Another thread I started, received hardly any:

http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=487451

This page got a PR6, anyone who can work that one out is an SEO god.

Trying to penalise blogs and what not, it it just a PR (public relations that is) job for google ??
