How Often Does It Change?

Ok, I'm getting a bit annoyed with Google right now and their everchanging pageranks. I've gone from a PR3, down to a PR1, back up to a PR3, down to a PR2 (two days ago) and now I'm at a PR0! What the heck?!?!? How often do they change the rankings? Every day? It wouldn't bother me so much if I wasn't trying to earn some extra money by writing sponsored ads. But, a lot of these sponsors go by pagerank and when you have a low one, you get less work. I know there are several people out there that say not to write sponsored ads on your blog, it drives readers away. Maybe they're right. Maybe that's what is going on here even though I'm still showing a lot of traffic to my site. I don't know. It's so frustrating.

Edit: After much searching on the web, I've noticed that several blogs that write sponsored ads have been knocked down to a PR0. Several of these blogs have speculated that google is "out to get" those of us who write these ads. Personally, I think it's a crock to have high and mighty google punish you for what is written on your blog. what happened to freedom of speech?

Who would know why Google does anything? They're God. I got slapped from 5 to 4 last month and now I notice they've dropped me to 3. What does it all mean? Who cares - I'm using a program that gets me to the top of their stinking Google Search nearly every time. Have a look here - Getting videos to top of Google - and if you do a Google search using that phrase you'll see I'm at #3 after two Google posts - with nearly 65 Million pages listed.
