The last few years have proved this bird can fly .  But can Twitter
dodge arrows?  Only time will tell.

I’ve been on Twitter for a few years now but it’s never managed to capture my full attention.  What has been taking up my attention is reading the seemingly never ending stream of recent posts where everyone knows the  best way to monetize Twitter .  One idea that’s been bandied about is the potential to leverage their mass amount of personal data as a monetization strategy through targeted adserving or third party partnerships.

Google updates Page Rank: Iteration Station debues at PR3

Hey Folks,

Just a quick update…

Google begun updating its pagerank information some time early this week. They are also updating sites backlink information. So, check out your web properties to see if you’ve been given a green bar boost. This is the first PR cycle that www.iterationstation.com has been around for and we debued at a PR 3- not too bad :) . This will be old data, likely from the end of January, so if you’ve done a big SEO campaign over the last month it won’t likely be reflected yet in your bar.

Remember, although pagerank does provide some indication of search engine rankings, it is by no means the definitive factor in serp placement. It is fun to see that green bar on the rise though, and for those who have an inkling of what it is, a high pagerank provides social proof that your site has value.

If you don’t know how to see your pagerank, you can download the Google Toolbar.
