This page lists the problems I've had with my Page Rank. Hopefully it may shed some light on things that might cause you some problems.

Notes to write about

An IP address was showing up in the search, turned out to be a mirror that I don't really use, but it's used for image serving. Simply added robots.txt to remove it. Also emailed someone else to remove a copy of the page.

I applied to the google ad program, for http://counter.bloke.com/ - I was rejected :(. There is not a whole lot of stuff on the site. It's just a counter, so it's not likely to have much content. Well anyway, now my PR dropped from 7 to 4. Coincidence? I hope so. Sigh, and so it did also for Flamingtext.com.

I did this search: http://www.google.com/search?q=cameron+gregory+swish+bonnell+guistuff&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&filter=0 which looks for "cameron gregory swish bonnell" which are some specific keywords that should only be found together on our page. We got 10 results ... all copies of our page. The results are here

BonnellTech.com was doing a meta refresh in the header: It had: ]

<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0; url=http://www.flamingtext.com/">
If your browser does not automatically redirect you in a few seconds, please
click <a href=http://www.flamingtext.com>here</a>.
I changed this to:
Please check out <a href=http://www.flamingtext.com>flamingtext</a>.com
for the entry, I just added robots.txt file:
# robots-none.txt

#default is not allow, since only www.flamingtext.com is allowed
User-agent: *
Disallow: /

The information provided within these pages is provided AS IS, and without any warranty. Following these directions may (but not limited to) crash your computer, delete all the information on your hard disk, open up security holes or cause your house to burn down. I made these pages to provide some information about the setup that I have done, but I did not proofread it for correctness, and in most cases did not test it. There are commands in these pages that would definately delete or corrupt all the data on your computer (especially the dualboot section). In fact it happened to me.... So you are on your own!
