Thread: Are backlinks from high PR pages important

    Are backlinks from high PR pages important

    Are backlinks from high PR pages important to rank in google.

    All other things being equal-
    "Will a site with 10 related backlinks from PR5 pages" rank higher than
    "A site with 20 related backlinks from PR1 pages".

    Whats the general consensus ?

    Thanks guys!

    Let's say this -

    I get 5 links from PR1 or 2 niche/related sites/pages that have their own strong backlinks, say 1000 strong backlinks and decent rankings if not top 10 or 20.

    I get 10 links from so called PR5 sites/pages that have hardly 3-4 backlinks and no rankings but a high PR.

    I will prefer those 5 links. PR doesn't matter much. It will go high after a site's backlink strength. It's better to get related links from sites that have their own strong backlinking... and PR doesn't matter much there. If you get a good PR too, it's all great.

    Hi,

    In answer of your question I would think most would say Yes.

    I on the other hand will disagree. Only because I am not a big fan or care about PR. If you are buying those links I personally would not.

    Here is why. I want traffic to my site. PR don't mean traffic. I have seen PR2 sites get 100's of times more UV then PR 6 sites.

    The only people who care about PR are people who try to sell links.

    Go for sites that might bring you traffic and don't worry about PR.

    How do you judge related sites? Getting links from the pages that rank high for your targeted keyword are the most important. The PR is the toolbar may not be telling you the whole story or in many cases is already months out of date.

    It is highly advisable to choose a site with more backlinks than a site with higher PR.

    As per my observations, a mix of both High PR and low PR backlinks are a must to make them look more natural.
    If you have your link placed on a page before its first pagerank update, you can make it pass more value as it somehow seems more organic.

    Bing highly considers high PR backlinks. One of my Seo blogs ranks very highly(first page) for 'ALL' my targeted including 'seo articles', 'seo tips', 'seo quiz', 'seo faqs',etc...
    Atleast the first two keywords are highly competitive and i have achieved this ranking just because of the high PR backlinks pointing to my site.

    However the same blog is not ranked too very well on Google as i believe its algorithm is comparably smart enough to plot the difference between organic(naturally gained) backlinks and manually(blog comments,etc...) placed backlinks.

    Yahoo is as good as dead, so i don't consider it so much.

    I totally agree with you!

    Related links can push your site up in search results, but it takes time...

    In my personal experience, Yes backlinks with High PR can really boost you position in the Engines. I was lucky to get my link on a page with high PR and almost after a week my keyword move some positions up.
