My Pagerank is back

Since posting last July 22 that I noticed my pagerank vanished and only showed as “No PageRank Information Available”, after doing some investigation on my files I saw that I had an empty robot.txt file, so I added the allow tag back. This could be the culprit,  it could have caused googlebots to not crawl the site.  Now I need to investigate why my robot.txt suddenly became empty. Anyway thanks google for giving back my PR 3/10.

Where did my homepage PR go?

My Google Toolbar got corrupted about two weeks ago and I didn’t pay much attention to it, all sites I visited Pagerank were showing “No PageRank Information Available”. On this blog my PR was 3/10 for almost several months now. I reinstalled the Google Toolbar last night and saw that my PR has vanished. From what I know this happens only when you get banned from Google from doing some Black Hat SEO tricks. Well I wasn’t doing any, plus some of my post still has Pageranks but not the homepage. Researching it further I found this is happening to some sites owners as well. No one has a clue. I checked Google Webmaster Tools and my site is being crawled periodically, I checked my log files and .htaccess file.. all is well.

So far the only thing not right is the robots.txt file which I rarely modify has no data in it. It’s missing

User-agent: *
Allow: /

So I added it back and I’ll check in the next few days if my PR returns to normal.

What is Alexa and why should I be bothered with the statistics. As we all know the more traffic for your site the better. Alexa owned by amazon.com offers a free service that analyzes the traffic your website is getting, the data source is from millions of users of the Alexa Toolbar and other resources tied up with Alexa.
