Google Pagerank Dropped! How to solve the issue?

Gibni PagerankBack in mid-October 2008, Gibni’s page rank dropped suddenly from 2 to 0!  I was little bit confused about how this happened! Anyway, as a new web developer, I had a lot to learn still! I did a lot of research on the topic, and found out that the main problem are the ‘outgoing links’ on my pages! Even if these links were to websites I knew most of them, Google did not appreciate all of them. At start, I decided to forget about the PageRank stuff and keep working on my site. My Alexa ranking was continuously improving and I could sell ads as well as before. So there was no need to worry! Even my pageviews doubled after a while!
I was in the process of optimizing my site that this pagerank drop happened. Once I finished my work, I went on checking all those links and decided to put a NOFOLLOW rel tag to almost all outgoing links on my site. Some of you may not approve this, but I believe that NoFollow is a good thing when it comes to improving the Internet content quality, mostly from search engines point of view.
Once I solved the rel tag issue for my links, I asked Google for ‘reconsideration’, explaining them that I was still learning and now I am aware of their quality guidelines, and I fixed the issues on my site. This was one month after the PageRank Drop!
Two or three days later, my PageRank went back to 2 again! I was surprised that this happened so fast!
Anyway, if you experience a PageRank drop, fix issues that might be in your pages by following Google’s Quality Guidelines from the “Webmaster Tools” service in Google, and then, submit your website for reconsidertion.

Mozilla Firefox … Shall I install or not?

Firefox
Firefox with an average of 15% of internet users by January 2008, is the next most used Browser on the internet.

You can read complete history and a lot more information on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Firefox .

I personally have been using Firefox and Internet Explorer for years. Well, both of them have disadvantages and inconveniences, but in overall i’ve been more satisfied with Firefox.

First of all, Firefox is more stable compared to Internet Explorer. As I experienced more crashes and application errors on Internet Explorer, I had very few crashes on Firefox.

From security point of view, I always felt more secure while browsing with Firefox. On Internet Explorer you get a lot of add-ons which cause severe security issues and most of the time cause application crash.

Even spywares are more common on Internet Explorer.

Some people say that they are used to Internet Explorer and do not want to switch to a new browser! Let me assure you; you won’t find any difficulties when switching to Firefox, because:

– It is very easy to use.

– Imports your Bookmarks, Favorites, and more setting from Internet Explorer if you want, and it does it AUTOMATICALLY, with no headaches!

– It is Very stable.

– You can customize its look to what ever color and style you like. It’s not like IE which forces you to like it!

– You can install and remove the add-ons you like and need. No headaches!

Google AdSense temporarily unavailable?

WTF?! Google Adsense site is down?!

What’s wrong with Google?

I can expect servers going down from every company, but not having secondary servers to serve up the required services is a bit shocking from Google, and mostly from it’s money making program!

Tonight (Tuesday, March 2008, 02:04 France Time) I tried to access my Adsense account, but I got this strange error page:
