This is what Google has been announced recently — sites selling raw link for PR juice will be penalized.

So, did the recent update affected your blogs/websites?

It is also possible that this recent update is screwed in some way. If you remember some 6 months ago when that PR update was so screwed some sites easily get PR6 and even on blog I owned for 6 months got a PR8 page. Maybe this time, it’s the other way around.

Greetings from Los angeles! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your site on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the information you provide here and can’t wait
to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m
not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, amazing site!
