If you’re on the internet a lot, you’ll realize that it’s filled with blogs of all shapes, sizes, and stripes. Many are utilized by businesses as a way of extending their brand and pulling in more customers. Others are just people who are taking advantage of a platform so that they can put…
I recently changed from a blogspot to .com domain, and my Page Rank took a nose dive. I have tried everything, but nothing seems to get me back up again. My numbers/views etc. has doubled, but nothing has changed with the PR.

Just realize google hasnt done their major PR updates since april 2010
you can check it here http://googlepagerankupdate.com/
