I got spanked by Google and I didn't even know they were giving spankings out.
Up until the latest Google update I really didn't pay much attention to their rankings. I read a lot about how having sponsored posts have really hurt some people, but since my blogs are young (4 months), I always had a 0 and wasn't really concerned. In the last update this blog was given a 3. I took a lot of sponsored posts with Social Spark since then, which I knew would hurt me in the next update, but as of today, this blog in ranked N/A by Google. I didn't realize an update was being done. Does Google just strip your ranking whenever?
No worries, the sponsored posts were nice for a little extra income, and when I was having a mental block about what to write about,it was nice to have an idea and get the creative juices flowing. This blog is more about helping others so I will not get discouraged and I will march on with my intended content and new ideas on how and who to help.
