(Note: I have altered the title of this post because I don't care to post the metaphor in my own newsletter.) Karoli offers a slew of examples of mothers with kids or who are raising money for cancer who are making a little spare change off their writings. The reason? Apparently Google lowered the page rank of bloggers who write paid posts or have paid links on their blogs to zero. Me, I have no sympathy. The commercial bloggers link to each other to artificially boost their page rank. This counters that, and lets people like me have a voice too.
