Page Rank Up
Canadian Financial and Consumer Opinions page rank seems to have raised up to a 2/10 in Google’s eyes, which is a start given it was at 0/10 for a very long time (due to unknown reasons). What caused this? I have no idea, I have been cleaning up the mess of cross-links (over 300) that was left from when I moved from Blogspot to Dreamhost and WordPress, so that might be a contributing factor, but if anyone else has a guess, I am open to suggestions as well.
WordPress Clean Up Algorithm
To clean up the mess that I left (without thinking) moving a mature blog from Blogspot, I have come up with the following algorithm.
Find all articles with canajunfinances.blogspot.com mention in it
For Every Article in list DO Find Every entry in article to canajunfinances.blogspot.com DO Find corresponding article in canajunfinances.com Replace original article link with canajunfinances.com entry DONE DONE
This clean up was pretty darn painful with this web site, but it only had 150 entries and not a lot of cross links, however, with the Financial Blog, there are thousands of cross links I have been fixing by hand, and it is a slow and very painful process.
