So I run a pretty large and established content site. My main form of monetization is text link ads. But over the years, my PageRank has declined from 6 to now a 2. I've had success selling a lot of text links, but that success backfired because I had too many outbound links on the site. I think I'm being penalized by Google for that. My question is what should I do to get my PR back? I'm not getting many new advertisers since my PR is lower. But I have to keep the links up my current clients have bought. I feel like I'm in between a rock and hard place. Google is the reason for my success ... but they are also the reason I am struggling. Would removing all text link ads allow Google to re-rank my site? How long generally does that take? Yes, I know Google frowns on text link ads, but that's what I rely on. Let me know your advice.
