I got an inbound PR7 link from Apple
Does the page on which the outbound link to your site have any special weight or authority? For example, is it a page created and edited by Steve Jobs? I could see that as a page likely to deliver extra boost . . unless, of course, Mr. Jobs likes to crank out lots of such pages when he can't sleep . . :P
Is the originating page clearly within some version of upper managerial/editorial control? Again, more signals of umph and pizazz then perhaps the more . . (I hate the word) . . juice that flows? (Anyone know if there's more than 1 version of PR, such as PR of a page verses PR (as a variable) that is somehow transferable? In other words, a webpage may have a high PR BUT that may not be "PR of the type" that gets points/juiciness for subject matter authority, expertise and editorial control -> i.e., "transferable" PR, in the sense that "if there's an outbound link on this page then that REALLY means something extra . . .")
How many other websites benefit from ~similar "links from Apple"?
Is there any other reason for this link, to you site, to have any special meaning?
Does the type of link you received tend to have a temporal quality, that is, it was given not as a long time endorsement of your site's authority or quality but simply as some form of recognition that your site now exists? Or some other similar reason?
Is the page on which the link exists a type of page that quickly "gets buried or lost" within the Apple site?
I guess what I'm asking is what is the real meaning and import(ance) of this link and this link giving? I'm sure there's benefits to being the beneficiary of links originating from high PR pages but maybe the page itself simply has a PR boost NOT due to anything of particular weightiness of the page but merely because it resides within the PR-bathwater of the Apple site.
<:P> Next time maybe you can ask Steve Jobs for a homepage link from the Apple site to your site, with the link surrounded by relevant words of high praise in bold. </:P> Now that type of link might really jazz your site.
