I have made a startling discovery and I just found this out yesterday. My reviewing blog, As the Pages Turn
, received a 5 PR ranking. This is a blog I only started a month ago and I only have maybe ten posts up. This goes against all the SEO I've ever learned. When I look for a blog to host my authors, I insist that the blog is updated, has a good set of archives and is geared toward my authors' books. I've now made a new rule where the blogs have to have a good PR ranking - at least a 4. It takes a while for a new blog to get even a 4, but with constant updating, it can get there in a month (give or take a few days). Mine is a 5 which I discovered yesterday. It goes against everything I thought SEO to be and after doing some analyzing, I thought could it be the memes?
I have found 4 memes which I use - The Sunday Salon, Booking Through Thursday, Teaser Tuesdays and What's on Your Nightstand?. I love them and am having a blast using them when I can find the time, but does anyone know of anymore out there geared toward books? I need a Monday, Wednesday and a Friday, or anything else you can think of.
If memes are the ticket to high PR ranking, then I am so there so if anyone has any suggestions, can you please let me know?
