Page Rank
Could it be that PR5 is the maximum for some types of web pages

I have been reviewing the page rank of myself and my competitors. And it appears that PR5 is the maximum across the board. Could it be that because our target market is so small, that being a PR5 is better than mediocre?

I've done lots of optimizing and many pages come up in the top 3 on keyword searches, usually ahead of my competitors. But no matter what, PR5 and I are a pair.

I don't believe that. If you got a nice link from the front page of Apple.com or Microsoft.com or Chevrolet.com, I suspect your PR would jump.

I tend to relate the "expected PR" of a site with the categories its in at DMOZ and Yahoo. If you can situate yourself in one of the top tier categories (one thats relevant of course:) ) then you can get the high PR you want.

If its something like
>Regional > Outer Mongolia > Rare Widgets

Then in the scheme of things in the world you would hope that PR is lower.

I would have said the opposite is true, its probably easier to get a higher page rank in an area where competition is scarce, or interest is scarce anyway.!

I have a pr5 site with relatively small amounts of traffic and a pr3 site that receives loads more! :o
