What a surprising thing to see first thing in the morning!

Apparently it the blog world rewards people who say ridiculous things. My PageRank is Dead article is now at #2 on DayPop.

I really hadn't expected this.

Heh. I wonder if I'll hit #1? I bet I could. Come on, help me out! All I need is a link from your blog to my PageRank entry.

Oh, wait. That'd be cheating. Don't link to me. Really. Google might further punish my PageRank.

Ok. Make up your own mind. Yeah, just pretend I never mentioned it. Instead, think about how getting on to DayPop is likely to further propel one up the DayPop list.

Or not.

I think it was Dave Winer's link to you that propelled you to the top. Winer is at the top of the A-list.

Google Watch has addressed this issue:

I think it's too early to know if blogs are being PageRank reduced in Google. There have been too many new and unstable results on Google the last few weeks. Something's going on, but no one knows what it is.
