AdSense Side Benefit? (Continued)

Craig Danuloff tells me that my previous post on this topic isn’t right.

He says AdSense has nothing to do with page rank. Craig surmises that, “It is much more reasonable to assume that your blogging increased both your PageRank and your relevance to the term ‘Fred Wilson’ because so many people now link to pages on your site using your name as the link text. The increase in relevance is probably more responsible for your improved position than any PageRank increase.”

Well then I change my assertion to “Improved Google page rank is a nice side benefit to blogging”.
