There doesn't appear to be a category for my questions so I'll put it here, I'm sure someone will move it if necessary.
Anyway, I started a website a few months ago, probably no more than six months ago. I decided to check the Google page rank today and I was pretty astounded to see it had a rank of 4. I have checked how me back links the site has and it appears to be around 99. Most of them seem to be coming from my personal website which also has a rank of 4, there is a link on the home page and it looks as though there may be some links contained in my blog. So, how has this happened? My first thought was maybe a very high ranking website has put a link to mine on their site, but I can't find any proof of this. How on earth did a website that is only a few months old managed to gain a page rank of 4. Two of my other websites have the same page rank, it's taken almost 6 years for them to get this ranking and they have 100 times more relevant content, just does not make sense.
I would be interested to know if anyone has a theory on how this has happened?
