My site is about a year old. Back when I was first getting started a good friend of mine gave me a few relevent backlinks to help me get some traffic on some older pages he had.
I have been working on my site for a while now, but never really worried about PR, I wanted to get some content before I started working for backlinks.
Yesterday I created a list of 150 related sites which I could try to get a backlink from and installed Googlebar to take a look at my own PR.
To my great surpise I found out I have PR 5 on my homepage! I have about 60 backlinks, but only 5 of them are non-dmoz. Upon further examination it turns out that my friend put me on some of pages which have PR 7-8! Woohoo!
Should I even bother getting more backlinks?
If not, won't getting backlinks provide new avenues for people to find my site?
If so, will 150 "regular" (non-mega-PR sites) links get me some more PR points? Is it worth the effort?
