It was my understanding that if an index page had a PRx than any page hanging from the index would have a PRx-1. This theory holds true on some of my sites but not all of them. Better yet, I see some sites that maintain the same PR that they have on their index page throughout their site with the same number of backlinks. Am I constructing my sites wrong?
I made several sites for customers who insisted on using frames. Now they pay the price. When you would usually say linked pages have PRx-1 they have PRx-2 on these pages, at least for links to framesets. The frameset gets PRx-1 the frames PRx-2. Not to mention the cases where google delivers 1 frame out of a frameset (say the navbar) in the SERP.

Don't think so plasma. I have a site in frames which has a PR 5 home page and all other pages with a PR of 4, including a links page with 77 outgoing links and zero incoming. Not a big site mind you, about 250 pages or so. A simple one line js script to load the right page will do just fine.

I've noticed on my latest site that the pagerank on my main page (PR4) is also the value for a lot of the other pages on my site, however it is only the pages that have links from my main navigation. Other pages (like news articles) that only have one link going ot them have lower pagerank. Internal structure is very important.
I'm not sure atm how google views subdomains though, because all of my subdomains have PR4 the same as my main site, I dont know wethere this is just co-incidence/good linking or inheritance... But one thing is for sure, you can "PR VOTE" inside your site the same way as you do for external links :)
