Is there no other way of getting PR apart from getting Backlinks.Is Backlink is the only way to get PR.

Your internal linking structure has a lot to do with your PR as well. Remember, it is PAGE Rank not SITE Rank.

Each page on the web inherently has a very small amount of real PR, even if it's not linked anywhere. But that amount is so small that it rounds down to a toolbar PR of 0.

Within a closed system (such as a site with no inbound links), various linking stuctures can be used to manipulate PR and provide a boost to certain pages. Sites with many pages are better positioned to take advantage of this phenomenon than are small sites, because they have a bigger pool of PR to throw around.

I can't give you proofs, but in my experience it is like cabowabo told you.

Internal linking structure is important. I have a PR6 page and I made some "smart" changes and removed many links that pointed internally to different sections and pages of my site.

Result: Three months later, I lost between 10 and 30 positions in most keywords.

So, take advantage of your most important page and use it to link internally. It is not a matter of how much page rank you will be passing to internal pages. It is a matter that you are linking them from an important page that has the same theme. Perhaps it is the same as passing page rank, but I like to think of it in terms of logical organization of links and topics.

Another thing. Keep those links for a long long time. Don't remove them.

When my page rank was raised from 5 to 6, my homepage didn't get more traffic, but in general my whole site started to receive more traffic due to links pointing from my homepage. Now I removed them and I still have PR6 but 40% less traffic!

Hope this helps.
