Have you been experiencing penalty in page rank recently? Maybe, you are not aware of google’s policy on passing pagerank juice with dofollow for paid links or paid posts. Google open their eyes wide and combating any paid post that comes with dofollow links and punishes the bloggers heavily by removing any page rank they have almost immediately. Trust me, I’m one of the victim too. One of my blog gets it’s PR3 for a week and all my paid posts bid got approved at higher price. I got excited at first and completed all 10 paid posts with ration 1:3 (paid post: non paid post) within a week. Right after my 10th post, I got my page rank slammed to ZERO.
This is my personal experience on page rank slamming. Most of the advertisers are aware of it and still request dofollow link in their paid posts. For example, if you see any advertisement that comes with below clause:
1. Do not use a no-follow tag on the required link.
And you have bidded it, be prepare to lose your page rank. These advertisers are your page rank stealers. They are aware of google’s rule and still need dofollow link for their paid post links. Any unaware bloggers might not bother about it because they don’t understand. They are the victims to these rule breakers advertisers. However, there are some paid post networks that strongly follow nofollow link for any paid posts. Like Bloggerwave and Socialspark. There are a few more paid post network that gives the bloggers opportunity to choose dofollow or nofollow for their paid post according to the advertisers request at SponsoredReview and BuyBlogReviews.
If you don’t want to lose your hard earned page rank, beware of this page rank sharks. Sometimes, the paid post value might blind our eyes from the truth. Just be extra careful when passing the page rank juice on any paid links on your site. It is illegal in google’s eye. They can remove your existing page rank for it.
