StatCounter PageRank Back to 10’s PageRank was punished for a while, but now it’s back to 10* – and interestingly enough, all of a sudden** all paid links on that page are using the “nofollow” attribute to stop them from passing PageRank. You can almost hear the echo of the political background chatter that must have taken place between Google’s webspam team and the StatCounter people... or does anyone think any of this is due to Google’s algorithmic ranking?

*Local differences when checking PageRank notwithstanding.

**At least when checking’s cache from August this year, all links were still “normal,” non-nofollowed.

[Thanks SC user!]
