In 2008, we had hoped for a Google Page rank of 3, or 4, or even 5 for The MAG. But for some reason, the PR actually fell from 2 to 1, and it had been 1 for the past three months.
Looks like Google today decided to make some changes to the Page Ranks. With these changes The MAG got back its PR of 2. I know it’s nothing spectacular, but celebrating every positive development, however small it is, is an important part of growing. And we do hope to continue growing in the future, with your support, of course.
For quite some time now, we had been using NeverBlueAds affiliate advertsising network for The MAG. But, the results haven not been that good. I am sure it has nothing to do with the quality of the NeverBlueAds site, because I have always been satisfied with whatever services they offered. I think it was a case of mismatch between The MAG’s readership, and the types of ads served by NeverBlueAds.
Today, I decided to take the ads off. In fact, I have taken almost all kinds of advertising off The MAG, and kept only an ad block by Project Wonderful . This is also on an experimental basis, and if it is also not able to deliver , it will be soon gone too.
