PPC links never add to your PR. Your incoming links, which is the basis of your PR, is calculated solely on plain html links on either image or text. All of the PPCs I know use tracking devises on their links, so that google will not count those links as part of your PR.
goclick is a cheap way to get some listings.. i wouldn't hedge sales on it, but it will bring visitors and cheaply. Plus it helps in ranking because alot of goclick sites are directories and links so as googlebot finds them it shows up.
(same with any ad for that matter.. i must have 20k links to one of my sites from overture, kanoodle, brainfox, google, goclick and other ppc links)
