If that's all you do, it's not likely to help them. And even if you built up the reputations of your sites by creating authoritative, unique content, the apparent fact that your plan is to use links from these sites to boost the rankings of your "clients" (i.e., people who pay you) means that Google is unlikely to view the links as editorial in nature. If the search engine determines that you're linking to a site because you were paid to do so, the links won't be permitted to boost your clients algorithmically.
If you manage to build up the sites to the point where they have a huge audience that's relevant to your clients' businesses, then the links will serve to publicize the clients, and that could be worth something to them, but it won't directly boost their rankings in Google searches.
By the way, when you say that these sites have "a PR or 4-5," I assume you're referring to the PR as reported in the toolbar for the home pages of these sites. But are all of these links going to come from the home pages of your sites? Even if your links to the clients actually passed PR, it would be the PR of the linking pages that meant something (and not much, at that), not the PR of the home pages.Go to the full post
