All the inbounds are PR 5?
a few of them were, not all.... odd thing is, if I try using linkdomain now, Yahoo just returns one result.... are they starting to use the same tactics as Google?
One PR 7 may well do it
I think Phantom's right.
Quality, not number of back links. One good PR 9 or 10 link would be very valuable to any web site.
Remember as a child when we would trade one 20 dollar bill for four 1 dollar bills? It's the same thing, just we're all grown up now! :) BTW, I don't trade one 20 for four 1 dollar wills anymore!

25 inbounds links are enough to get a PR of 6. The quality of links does matter. You need not to have all high PR links it should me mixed kind of PR. Because high PR directly affects your PR. So be engaged with the theme related links. It also matters.
Well, first, you're talking toolbar PR. Second, as mentioned, high quality links can boost a site as effectively of thousands of low quality links. Third, does the site rank well - that is really the issue that matters. And fourth, it may have links being credited that you wouldn't see using backlink checks at any of the engines.
It (Y!) is now showing me 95 inbound links!
Wish there'd be some consistency: first it was 25, then 1, now 95.
What does anyone think about these sites where you can buy links on other websites?
One i noticed was selling 500 links for $300 - The offer said you could have two anchor link text/URL variations which will dynamically regenerate every time a page is visited.
I guess the links are on low PR pages, but 500 links is 500 links all the same is it not?
One site a PR8 is selling links at $1250 per month!
Not good. 500 links for $300 dollars, and you only get 2 different anchor text variations? Don't waste your money. If you want to buy text links, I can tell you a couple good sites where you will find high quality text links (although much more expensive than what you are discussing).
