PageRank Update - 22nd January 2010The new year has brought a new PageRank update from Google. If you don't know what PageRank is you might want to read my what is PageRank article.
My website has stayed at a comfortable three, which I am pleased with, as I believe that it deserves its current status. Some internal pages like the Iceland pictures page and the Recycle page have however increased in rank.
There have been a few jumps on internal pages ranking on my blogs too, but the most pleasing thing for me about the new ranking is that my technology blog is now a PageRank 3! I think this is a fantastic achievement for my tech blog - due to its age.
In the latest update my site has also acquired some more sitelinks. These are links that appear under my sites name and description in the search results. There is an image of the new sitelinks below - the circled area is where the sitelinks are.
Overall I am very pleased with how my site and blogs have performed in the last PageRank update, but at the end of the day, as long as I keep providing great content, and you keep reading it, what else matters?

AddThis - 1st January 2010I said that the new year would bring changes to my site, so here is the first!
I have updated my AddThis button. This can be seen in the top right corner of each page. It used to look like this:
Now thanks to a quick update and a bit of personalisation, the new AddThis bar looks... well a little less like a bar. Have a look:
The new bar is more a series of buttons. The first being what I like to call the super compact ultimate sharing tool, which if you hover over it, you instantly get a selection of the most popular social tools, so you can spread the word about what you are reading. Click on the button and a you get a massive list of every social tool you could ever want!
After that there is the email button. One click and you can be sending the page you are reading and a personalised message to any number of your friends.
Next comes the Twitter button. This button opens up Twitter, so that you can easily tweet about the page you are on.
After the Twitter button is the Facebook button, which opens up Facebook ready for you to type a status to accompany the link from my site.
Finally comes the Facebook Like tool, which instantly lets you like the content you are viewing, literally at the click of a button! Why not give it a go now? It's quick and really easy!
I hope you like the new AddThis buttons that I have added to my site, and I hope they make it much easier for you to share the content you love, with others. If there are any social networking sites that you use more often than Facebook and Twitter and would prefer to see on the list, I could also add them to the list - just send me a quick message!
