Dang!

I don't know about every one else, but I'm really not liking Google's new "slap on the wrist" page rankings! I am now ranked at a 2, this is down from a 4. This has taken my money making opportunities and kicked them right out the door! It's aggravating since I was well on my way to saving for my Vegas trip next year. But, it's apparent that Google does not like paid posts and those of us who do them are being severely punished, therefore we are unable to do paid posts now because we can't get any decent ones!

What about you? Has this deGooglefying affected anyone other than myself? *sniff*

Yeah, I went from a 3 to a 2 and it cut my earning in half :( I'm lucky to get any opps over $5

Thats bulshit! sorry to hear that Tish I hope you can still make your trip.

I hadn't been ranked beforehand, but that really isn't fair.

Kai said...

Hell yeah!

Same here girlfriend! Down to a 2 as well - and aren't the available opps just ~lovely~!!!

From what I've read, Google's ok with ads on your site, as long as they are GOOGLE'S ads, and not anyone's else's. Even people that had text link ads, etc., got the big bitch slap too.

I was planning on doing the same as you - saving for a trip we're planning in Sept 2008. Five measly bucks per opp just ain't gonna cut it!

I have a retail site that went from a 5 to a 3, and I have no clue why. With that drop so did the rankings for some of my top sellers in searches, just in time for Christmas! Thanks Google!!

Yep, Janna & Kai & Linda & Mags are all in the same boat, Tisha.
That just sucks.
I hope that rumor about PPP going to a ranking system like Smorty (where you get credit for approved opps) is true, and they go away from PR.

This doesn't affect me since I don't do sponsored posts, but you are not alone, so I've been reading.

I hope y'all don't hate me if my hubby takes a job with Google!
