Looks like a lack of good links can also play into this as the counterbalance. What do you think?
I don't think so (at least, not in my sector): for Key Term none of the top ten results are above PR3 (the #2 spot is PR1!), and running backlink checks on them shows a backlink profile consistent with their PR value.
