So...the STIRR.net website has been around since mid-March or so...and we still have a PageRank of ZERO (if you are using Firefox and have the Google toolbar...you will see our unworthiness in Google's eyes). Stirr.com (not affiliated with STIRR.net) is a link farm, so are we punished because our URLs are so similar?
No love on Google Search for "stirr" or on Ask. However, all of these guys have us number one: Yahoo! Search; MSN Search; A9 Search. Anyone have an idea why this is so?
[Update: We ran into a Google engineer that works close to the PageRank team, asked him and voila...we now have a PageRank of 5.]
