I got this referrer today from a forum. But the best insult I got was like a week ago when a WordPress user left a comment on my blog saying that my blog is the reason why terrorists hate America. Now that's funny! But here it is:
Blogs, WordPress, They make me wonder.
I do wonder how blogs and wordpress accounts can get such
great PR's with little content that seems to be meaningfull, Ive
seen a lot that are good, but this one just boggled me on how it
has a PR5. Do they have good connections or what?
I dont understand, these wordpress accounts make it look so easy and
it doesnt appear they write a whole lot of important stuff.
PR is all about links. Content is not a factor. Those homepages probably have a decent number of links pointing to them.
Also a PR of 4 is very easy to do. Anyone who tries can do it. PR5 doesn' take much more work.
I was curious what you meant by little meaningful content so I looked at your first example and quickly found this post:
Seems like a well written commentary on an interesting topic. The thrust of the blog is strange to me, but there are a number of examples like that page. If I were hired to personally replace Google's PR algorithm, I'd probably give the site higher than a PR4.
blogs have an advantage over nonblog-sites that they can participate in promotional activities that are organised by the bloggin community, you have things like blog carnivals and blog aggregate feeds and many more tools, I just make all my content sites blog-like these days.
You can also get much attention by making a beautiful design and working with standards compliant code, you can then submit your site to CSS gallery sites and sites like CSS Reboot.
This sector of the internet, the webtech sector, is very rich in PageRank, so if you want lots of PageRank, regardless of it being offtopic, just submit your site at all the webstandards networking sites and CSS galleries.
Of course, you don't need to expect amazing SEO results from getting lots of offtopic PageRank but it does help when you sell links on your site, through places like textlinksbroker, they just really like PageRank at those networks so even PageRank itself has a certain value.
