High PR for not many links or internal pages!

I have just found a PR6 site with only 9 internal pages and only 4 quality links. These are two PR7 pages (dmoz) and two PR6 from elsewhere.

Just another endorsment as to the importance of a good listing in dmoz.

I know sites with 100s of links that still only reach PR5, so this highlights the importance of quality over quantity!

Would you believe I have seen a site with PR7 that has only 1 page and, no links from DMOZ or Yahoo, and only about 15 other links going to it?

I can't speak about the site in question, but I'll give you the benefit of my personal experience: New sites sometimes get weird PR. My site had a PR 8 for a month... Now it's up and down between 4 and 5.

I don't think it's particularly unusual for a site with solid PR 7 links and a couple PR 6 to have a PR of 6. In fact, I have seen just 1 PR 7 link give a PR of 7! One PR 7 link is worth hundreds of PR 4 links.
