There is no way - PageRank calculations are defined by links.
I have been wondering if this is correct for the TBPR. I still see sites with a strange internal pagerank flow. Let's say you have a main-page with TBPR4 and a straight navigation like:
The "random surfer" would go to internal page1, perhaps more often than to page5. But I still see internal pagerank flows like:
- page1: TBPR1
- page2: TBPR0
- page3: TBPR2
- page4: TBPR0
- page5: TBPR3
... which are not explainable only by links and inheritance of PR. Perhaps something to do with the content?
I tried everything to get the TBPR back to those PR0-pages: Changing content (all content has been unique all the time), removing all external links, etc. but I couldn't find a reason for the different internal TBPRs or find a test to get a smooth internal PR flow. Except for being just FUD of course...
And yes: There are still sites out there having a PR0 on the mainpage and ranking like hell.
My questions would be: Are those PR0-pages passing link-juice or not?
