Metallman's Reverie is Taking a Hit in the Rankings

Hey there. Ever since I changed the domain to, I have been tanking in the rankings. My Alexa rank is now in the millions (from 75K) with only 1 site linking in, I have no IZEA rank (from a respectable 750), google rank is 0 with little to no pages indexed, and I only have about 90 links to my site on Yahoo (compared to over 7,000). The plus side? I have my own domain AND MSN (Bing) finally indexed my site. It looks like Metallman's Reverie is starting from scratch. Ranking wise at least. I hope that it won't hinder my ability to take opportunities from the IZEA programs for the time being. I figured that the site may suffer at first, but will be beneficial in the long run. I've also had to resubmit my site to other services such as Blogexplosion. I'm still waiting for an approval there and I just got my blog url updated in SocialSpark. It's all good though. The only place to go from here is up! Later!


  1. I'm sure you'll have the ranking back up in no time.

  2. I experienced the same thing. When I bought the other domain for other blog I lost my PR, but fortunately after 3 months my PR 3 is back.

    For blogexplosion my site there is rejected because of pop ups appearing on my blog. But I don't see any pop ups on my blog.Well I don't know.

  3. its crappy isnt it. but im sure the own domain will be an advantage to you in the long run :)
