    PageRank

    Lately I'm noticing more and more top sites that get a funny pr like 3,
    e.g. look at Steve Pavlina’s Personal Development Blog, he's likely the most famous blogger ever and has hundreds of thousands of backlinks - all natural, but the blog and site is pr3. I don't see any of his blog's pages that are above pr3, yet pretty much on any related keyword his posts come up first in google.

    Did google just figured they'd keep the pr and update it randomly to distract the webmasters from the really important things?

    Pretty much, same like them not showing all of your backlinks.
    For blood type dating go here. If your blood type is rhesus negative, go there. If you are bored and feel like liking a Facebook page, hit this one.

    It seems that Google has let hand-editing of PageRank and of the SERPS go wild.

    I can't imagine that a computer could screw things up this badly.

    PR is meaningless anyway. Unless you want to sell links to newbies...

    My arcade just went to PR3. I'm not really sure it's worthless, but it does have limited value these days.

    It does seem a joke and people who purchase links or ads based on PR alone will not get very far. I'd take a PR0 link with 10,000 readers/subscribers/visitors over a PR7 link with minimal traffic any day.

    Name 10 PR7 links that receive "minimal" traffic.

    I agree. The picture is true even if Charles has a point. I don't beleive there is any PR7 without traffic but the picture is true. I'll take traffic instead PR anytime too...

    I have a PR6 domain that has received 79 visitors from Google this month. Of the 855 visitors it has seen this month, most are bots.

    You can draw a lot of traffic with optimized content -- even at lower PR's.

    PR7's a slightly larger milestone and would require a lot of authoritative linking, which in itself, would bring in traffic.
