Page Rank Theory - Right Or Wrong?
Posted 23 April 2009 - 02:45 PM
I've asked fellow SEOs and the answers and opinions vary.
One side firmly believes that if you have a PR4 site, for instance, you would absolutely need links from sites of at least PR5 or higher to earn a higher PR.
My contention is the opposite: that while earning links from sites of PR5 or greater is certainly a path to a higher PR, it's not dependent on your site receiving a higher PR. I feel that earning a host of links from "trusted" sites (be they the same PR or lower) will still float you to a higher PageRank.

The only thing you really need to know is that links from pages that will bring you targeted traffic are good ones. Those that don't do that probably aren't worth spending time attempting to get.

The answer to your question when you're hit with these obtuse theories though is: It's simple math.
If you get links from 10,000 pages that are each 0.00010 real PageRank and each have 10 links on them, each of those pages would pass 0.00001 Real PR to you, equaling a total of 0.1 PR. Sure you could get there quicker with fewer links that each had 0.00020 or links from 0.00010 pages where there were only 5 links to split the real PR between, but they all stand a chance of increasing your PR incrementally.

As Jill said links that bring you traffic are the best ones, and those are the ones that people place on their sites or blogs to recommend your content, so those links eventually increase your visitors, and the little green bar.

With everything you guys have on your plates, it's great that you can still find the time to give back to the SEO community through your forum participation.
