Say No To Pagerank, Yes to Life


This is a war cry to all webmasters who have better things to do than to be listening to endless threads, blog posts and nonsense about the upcoming Google Pagerank Update.



It is that time of year again where all the SEO nerds will be on the edge of their seats waiting for the Google Pagerank update.

Frankly I hate this time of year, the forums are full of the same old threads, everyone predicts when the pr update will occur, then everyone complains that they didn’t get a fair deal.

Surely people have better things to do than spend hours in forums discussing a little green bar? Aren’t we all tired of this by now? We should just focus on improving our businesses and the rest will take care of itself.

So I am going to start a meme for a list of webmasters who prefer to get on with “real life” instead of dedicating all their spare time to the pagerank update.

If you feel the same way, then here is your chance to get hundreds of extra links to your site.

All you have to do is copy the info below, and put it into your site/blog. Then email me at : and I will update the list with your website/blog link.

As this spreads your site will be mentioned on hundreds, perhaps even thousands of sites.

Step 1: Highlight the links below, right click, then click “View selection source”
Step 2: Paste the “Say No To Pagerank” list into your blog or site
Step 3: email me at:
Step 4: Get a mention and link here at and every other site that plays the game
Step 5: Update your list daily to reflect the new websites and blogs that join in

    And so here I am on the 22nd of July 2007 reading the last installment of the Harry Potter frachise and I recieve an email from Dean.

    Somewhat surprised I believed it to have been Voldemort himself sending me more Viagra spam than “Avada Kedavra” has been used in the book.

    Alas no, I received a request to destroy PageRank once and for ever. I joined the Order of Hunt and have portrayed my loyalty once again, by posting on

    I wish for worldpiece and more inbound links then gold can by (Damn you Google) however accept anything that a kind sir can provide to

    If all these pages link together and to every other site which signs up, wouldn’t this end up adding your links on unrelated websites and web pages, with links to several other unrelated websites, which can lead to a penalty for these sites by Google maybe. Am a little confused here.

    SEO Reloaded – Google specifically says that you cannot harm ranking via inbound links.

    Also, the vast majority of these links are somehow webmaster related, whether it be PHP, SEO, Marketing or blogging.

    Nice link swapping huh, definitely a go along for the next Google update after this.

    There is one teeny tiny set back here: each webmaster has to return to this webpage to copy off the updated list therefore time is of great concern here Mr Dean.

    For Argument sake, if 10 – 20 webmasters join up each day for the next six months, how often should I refresh the list on my blog?

    Once a day, once a week or once a month?

    And by the way is there a do follow tag for PR juice to participating webmasters?

    Is it O.K for participating webmasters to add the no follow tag to their anchor link?

    And the $64,000.00 take all the money home question:
    Mr Hunt are you totally, honestly, true integrity sure that this is not a clever linkbaiting strategy devolved by a few over devoted seo webmasters?

    Anyway,I Will ad the list this instant over at

    Hope this list thingy catch on like a wild firestorm.

  • Dean Hunt

    Great questions!

    I will try and answer them all:

    Ref returning to update… this is a small price to pay. However, once or twice a week would be acceptable. So perhaps 2 mins of your time for potentially hundreds of links.

    Any blog using the NO FOLLOW tags will be removed and banned from the site. The comments section can be no-follow, but not the list itself.

    Clever link baiting strategy? I am good, but surely I am not that good ;-)

    Speak soon.

    By the way Dean, only one deggeh, deggeh measly favour, in order to make me look spunky in the search engines I would love the text between my anchor tags to as “Ezinet Global Marketing” instead of as I have been littering the internet with that anchor title tag like the Devil knows no better.

    And now to the bashment filled exciting news:

    This f@#$king meme thingy web marketing strategy is mad, sick, crazy to the brim. The results so far are thus extremely outstanding, not only have my Technorati popularity improved dramatically overnight but I have made leaps and bounds in the ranking category, now improving my ratings with all them “paid to” linkking and review sites out there (actually I sold 6 inline content ads due the improved standing.

    Dean Hunt for GOD GENIUS ELECT anyone? this shit is working wonders (yeah Dean I saw your FlagShit Promo, more on that later)

    I can only perceive one drawback though, THE GODDAMN LAZY WEBMASTERS around town who get excited at the idea at first, jump in, leaving their pants behind, splash around for a while, then all of a sudden they are no longer interested, abandon the Project (forgeting to update their listing with some reasonable frequency and might just end up causing this fantastic technique to stumble around a bit)

    Oh shaking shimmereens!! Hey guys it just hit me, how about all of us on this ‘ere list take this to the StumbleUpon Social Network?

    All that is required is for each of us to stumble the websites on the list, therefore putting them out there for our respective networks to vote and give the thumbs through the StumbleUpon Network.

    If I’m counting my marbles right then this will definite add up to a perfect 10 producing exponential benefits for all participating webmasters here.

    As a matter of fact I am now updating my blog with today’s changes as my commitment to this program.

    Keep the brilliace glowing Dean.

    Ezinet – Congrats on posting what could be the greatest blog comment I have ever read!

    Ok, I will attempt to answer your points…

    “I would love the text between my anchor tags to as “Ezinet Global Marketing” instead of”

    Your wish is my command. Done!

    Ref your technorati and other successes. Congrats. Glad I could help. I am sure everyone who doesn’t get involved in this thing will regret it.

    “Dean Hunt for GOD GENIUS ELECT anyone?”

    Very kind of you… I would settle for president. ;-)

    Ref the updating of the lists… listen, in a few weeks this thing will start to cool off. So updating for months is not going to be required. However, I am monitoring it at the moment and will be contacting people to make sure they update.

    Ref Stumbleupon… great idea. But someone beat you to it:

    I agree though, it could really help. So everyone please follow the link and add your stumble.

    Thanks for the comment.

    C’mon get the refreshed list on your site and let’s see if we can surpass all human limitations and have this buzzing for 6 months at least, heck! people here might end up breaking all sorts of top 1000 records with a 2 – 5 minute a day approach.

    So you are not a big fan of Page Rank… Then why bother with all the links… This seems like a crazy form of “link bait” to me. How will Google react if your website goes from a few links per day or week to hundreds or thousands of links overnight? Could you not be endangering all who sign up?

    As for me… I go for 5 links a day every three to four days… Slow and steady just like Google outlined in its patent application…

    Hey Dean,

    Hey Dean, This list is becoming a potent force to reckon with as there has been a way of so called “link trains” now fluttering across the lenght and breadth of cyberworld.

    Every blog and forum master suddenly has a lightening jolt of realisation that this kind of technique can do wonders for the status of your blog (right my blog is about to crack the technorati top 100,000) and therefore most blog forums are waking up just in time to catch the train and riding the wheels to success and recognition.

    There is one drawback though and we’ll all be around long enough to get a first hand view of what’s gonna happen next as there are always haters in the playing field.

    Pagerank is bullshit, it sucks.. it is a nonsense idea being propagated by google, jst to keep the webmasters taking about them all the time. This nonsense has to stop. Let us start by removing the google toolbar from our browsers first.

    I hav removed my google toolbar. I check the value of a site/page using the link and linkdomain command in yahoo.


    That tells you the whole story. Why rely on a stupid system like pagerank to decide the importance level of a page. A system that takes more than three long months to even update itself. A system that is flawed and outdated.

    PR is nonsense, don’t use PR to decide how good a site it. Remove your Google Toolbar or disable PR in the GTB today!
