The newest Google update seems to be winding down. How did you all fair.

Here is my official change report based upon what I noticed:
1)Pagerank for newer sites became harder to acquire. Older sites seemed to maintain the same pagerank. A few older sites went down in pagerank if they had below a PR5. Newer sites got a below expected pagerank. This I think is due to the fact that Google aparently downsized their index before doing a pagerank and backlink update. Does this seem retarded to you?

2)Mid-aged sites went up in the SERPS. Sites that are around the 1-2 year old mark went up in the index and started competing with the 6-9 year old sites. This I believe is a correction made in the algorythm after drawing much anger from webmasters during the infamous Jagger update.

3)Reciprocal links took another dive.  Not as big of a dive that happened when Big Daddy updated, but they obviously did drop in value once again. I also noticed that the sites that removed their link exchange pages went up in the serps(converting all their low value link exchanges into low value one way links). This draws the conclusion that the links placed on a link exchange page hasn’t dropped in value, however finding a link to each site, on each site has.

More to come on this later when i get some time. Check back.

So the Google Page Rank update seems to be settling down. My sites have be fluxing for about 2 weeks now. A few are still fluxing at the moment but most are starting to become steady. On the plus note just about all my sites have gained at least 1PR. The few that didn’t gain at least stayed the same and had subpages raise. Please post comments on how your sites’ are fairing in this update.

One thing to note is that it seems Google has fixed the problem with giving two different page ranks to the / and the /index.html. HOWEVER! This is funny. Google didn’t seem to fix that problem with the index.php. This forces me to ask one question. What the hell?! Once you figure out how to properly concatenate one how hard could it possibly be to duplicate the process it for the other popular extentions?
With the wake of Big Daddy and the PR update I am opening Blue Hat SEO up to site reviews. If you would like to receive some input on your site feel free to either email me or post it as a comment. Whether it be layout reviews or SEO reviews feel free to let me know where your concerns lay and I will be happy to give any help I can. If you email me also be sure to note whether or not you mind your review being posted on BlueHatSEO.com. As long as people don’t mind I would like to make the most part of my reviews public incase I happen to find something that may be of help to others.
