    It does not seem to be a big issue as the objectivity behind this whole scenario is to limit websites and increase PPC revenue and similar

    There are many avenues to drive along with trees and flowers lining the sidewalks and they will continue to flourish and prosper

    We have to drive along to pastures new, but remember it takes time and effort :)

    So very true but how long will it take some people to get out in their car and start it so they can smell the roses.

    worrying about any related issues will only bog you down, the big master is changing the rules and wants to play monopoly.

    Who actually knows,

    But the internet is so full of opportunity.

    All it needs is some creative ideas.

    You don't need proof because this is logical :rolleyes:

    If PR7 is pointing at you and becomes PR5 it will no longer spread PR7 don't you think ? ;)

    The PR drop on web directories wont have any greater affect than the PR drop on all the other sites.

    Many other sites has dropped PR, as long as nobody notices a SERP change things will remain the same. It just makes google look dumb when the algoritm isnt balanced.

    It is not only happening to directories, only site of mine changed is not a directory and went to a PR2 from a PR3. As long as PR is reduced across the board I don't think it is a very big deal...

    Google probably just wanted to take advantage of all the PR chasing and make PR look more valuable, there were way too many high PR sites and it cheapened their image.

    I guess people are going to start using that nofollow thing. I've heard that people can sell links and if they use the nofollow thing, then Google won't mind.

    I think it will mostly effect the very high-end link prices, by the looks of this udpate there will be very few PR7+ sites floating around the web.

    This update might actually cause the prices of links to rise, a lot of folks will be spooked into thinking the lower PR is due to link sales so they might stop selling which should create a higher demand than supply.

    I just read dozens of posts about PR falling on sites that never bought or sold links so I don't think this has anything to do with penalties, looks more like an overall adjustment.

    I was referring to this thread:

    http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=526596.

    That thread began with a discussion of directory PR drops, but then it was realized that some non-directory sites were also experiencing PR drops.

    But my original statement is still correct - When some big sites have PR drops, the effect will gradually spread to all other sites on the internet.

    Hey is this a Google PR section or Directories - I think we need to stay on topic and how directories are affected. If you want to ramble about PR in general, place posts in the Google section.

    For me I have seen my main directories drop 2 PR spots. I have 2 PR4 directories that are still the same. Crazy how directories have been leveled out.

    Whatever google is doing on directories is working. Subscriptions that I have for text links on directories that are now PR3-4 will be cancelled. Wow how the directory game has changed.... Most of people that pay to get listed in my directories are only concerned about PR even though its importance is limited... What does that mean for my directories now.... I dont think I am going to get much more listings but then again some of my directories have higher PR than alive and stuff - just CRAZY!

    google actually cheats people, as most of the adwords users think that their serps and pr get improved from adwords, but it dosenot!

    about yahoo directory etc, i guess it's google's limitation, google is not strong enough to destroy it's diplomatic relations with yahoo and the other big ones!:rolleyes:
