During recent page rank update, many have lost their PR and many have gained. I have noticed that a lot of blogspot blogs gained good page rank. I don’t know whether it a coincidence or they are really that is good. I was expecting at least PR4 in this update but was not aware that I was passing my page rank sidewide using Top Commentators and Top Droppers widget.
Sidewide link is not so good for the blog owner. If your blog have 1000 links and you have Top 10 Commentators widget showed sidewide. You are giving away 10,000 links at one time. Are we getting this much backlinks to give? So, I have decided to give only on main page. So, my top commentators will get 1 PR3 backlink only. Other than that, it will be from dofollow blog comments since I made my blog to dofollow.
Other than that, you can also disable commenting section for older blog posts. Most of the older blog posts will get good backlinks and might get some PR in google update. SEO experts will look for high PR blog posts and post comment to get high PR page’s backlink which will be motivating channel for spammers. You can disable commenting in your blog at wordpress > setting > discussion.
To get good page rank, you should minimize outgoing dofollow links and get more incoming dofollow backlinks. My next target of page rank is 5. What about you?
