Hello,

My blog dropped from a PR of 4 down to 0. I'm not sure whether it got black listed...

The blog is accessible from http://www.dailybasketball.com and http://blog.centercourthoops.com

The subdomain recently had a PR of 4, and I just had dailybasketball.com start forwarding.

I'm curious why this happened, and whether it's a permanent problem I need to try and fix.

Don't know, but something is finally happening. New content that I added months ago, finally got pr4's. Funny though my backlinks on home page dropped to what they were a year ago. It says 58, and I know I have thousands. For the past few months it has said 199

I am sure everything will fix itself in a few days.

From what I understand, Google updated PR sometime in the last few days - I've heard numerous reports of people getting suprising results.

The PR will have changed due to numerous reasons - not necessarily due to being blacklisted in any way.

Basically the value of links into your site would have been devalued and some of the sites linking to you could have been blacklisted therefore giving zero PR.

The rel="nofollow" tag could also show as you having inbound links but actually giving 0 PR

There are numerous other things as well that may be considered.

So do you have any suggestions on how I can fix the problem?

Anything I can do to make sure my PR is back up?

Contact Google, you can loose some PR (PR3 from PR4), but PR0 seems to be banned. So please check if your site is banned by Google (type site:www.yourdomain.com into the Google search field)
