Another explanation is that the PR 3 joined a link farm. That is happening for my industry's top keyword. The top 30 sites on Google all have PR 5 and 6 except for 1 site (with PR of 3) which just broke in to the top 10 about 3 days ago. I checked it out and it has over 1,000 links pointing back to it....sure enough a link farm. I just wonder how long it will take for Google to find them out and ban or penalize the site.
