PR and the Tag Board..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm just curious as to where some bloggers got the idea that having a tag board can actually affect the blog's PR. Really???

This is just an observation and I don't mean to offend anyone BUT how are they related? Is it because of the infamous backlinks that are needed when we leave comments instead of a tag/message in a tag board?

Anyway, this blog had its ups and downs. Its PR keeps changing. It had a PR3, then PR0 and now PR2, I think. But one thing that didn't change here...the tag board has always been there. I never removed it. Most of my visitors leave their message there...and that's fine by me. My tag board is also my point of reference sometimes as to who I should visit if I am extremely busy like right now.

So if anyone can explain to me as to how PR and tag boards are related, I would appreciate it. Just for the record, I've seen blogs with PR7 and they DO HAVE a cbox in their site...so it must not be the PR, right?

as for me naman, i seen a lot of people with extremely high PR ranks with cbox. but i removed mine not because of PR but for the sake of traditional blogging that made it very fun - leaving comments on posts - and helping other blogs to get backlinks.

with cbox, sometimes i cant even read all the messages because most of them were already gone or can't refer back because i am using a free cbox which can store limited messages.

with comments, if i forgot something, i just refer back to my previous post and find them all there.

by the way, thanks for the visit. i got you tagged too. if you don't mind. God bless!!

hi juls, i haven't penned down this idea ever but that's on my mind last year yet. i can agree with that idea based in my experienced with my wordpress blog. i think in 4 months time i already had a PR of 5. in wordpress categories can be converted to tags too or the other way around. kaya if a person will google: life is what we make it/ sunshineforlife/ crazy things to do/ happy baby/ meaningful thoughts and so on...they can be directed to my blog. In this way, I conclude that there's possibility that PR & tags are related as maybe this is the way google gave me that PR 5.

Overhauled!

That's what happened with this blog. It seems the host for the personalized blog template I used to have expired. I checked one day and ...
