Google PR by industry?
Does your PR have anything to do with the industry?

I posted this in a different forum, but I thought I would post a new topic, since it wasn't really fitting that one. So here a goes:
I have a question about PR. Does the length of time your site has been on the web have anything to do with your PR (ie a site that has been on for 5 years compared to a site that has been on for 4 months). I know a site that has been on longer has more of a chance at obtaining backlinks but what if the sites have the same amount of backwardlinks but one has a higher pagerank?
Also, my site is industry specific and all of my competitors have the same PR as my site does, yet I have more backward links. Does this mean, I won't be able to get a higher PR? I've been working really hard at obtaining quality reciprical links and adding rich content to my site. Is this a waste of time if Google gives everyone in my industry the same PR?
Thanks in advance
--Petra

There is a current discussion on age at

[webmasterworld.com...]

My own view is that PR tends to be industry specific. For example n individual hotel can rarely get above PR5 while a Travel site can get 6 or 7 with little differnce in content or backlinks
