Yes, the Kerfluffle over Google's Controversial PageRank System Affects Even Fashion & Lifestyle Bloggers
The mystery of how Google ranks the quality of a particular website is - like the whereabouts of Osama, how Promises stays in business...& Paris Hilton - developing one of the great unsolved puzzles of our time.
The subject of countless articles, blog posts, and even an entire industry devoted to making your site sexier in the eyes of Google, PageRank (PR) was devised by co-founder Larry Page during his Stanford days spent resesarching a new breed of search engine. PageRank (yes, it's spelled that way, and yes, it's a trademark of Google) denotes whether Google deems your site valuable & where on their foodchain you rate on a scale of 1-10; ten = good, one or less = bad (& very bad). Not only does PR affect what you can charge for advertising, but it directly impacts where you place in a Google search and your corresponding Google traffic.
