Google changed my pagerank in a flash. And it was not for the better. This happened to me last Friday morning. What would you do? You awake one morning and check your email to find a penalty greeting from Google. Oh no, you think. What is your new pagerank? You check your pagerank that was 3 last night and it’s now 0 this morning. Are you kidding me? Where do you start? You may want to cry, shout or even kick something. You are now in the Google penalty box! Read more to learn how to not get penalized from Google too.

Hi Val, I'm not too upset over it but wanted to share for those that do NOT want it to happen to them. I will be doing a follow up once I hear back from Google.

This can be really painful Lisa. And i know how i will feel if i happen to have such experience. At first, it will really leave you in a confused state. Thanks for sharing this with the bizsugar community.

Arghhh. By adding NoFollow to all your links you are collaborating in Google's drive to dismantle the Internet. The Internet is built on links, and at some point Google and Bing will look at all the sites with lots of NoFollow links and decide they are not trustworthy sites because they have a high number of links that are untrustworthy (That's what "NoFollow" means).

Other than for user-generated content (as BoFollow was originally meant to address) I can see no reason to ever NoFollow a link.

Hi Amabie, - interesting take on it. I do not agree with it but if are sites are being penalized what else should we do? I think we should all Bing it when we search :)

Thanks for this explanation. I don't think I have ever checked the "NoFollow" box.
