PR 5... should I even bother?

Link development for traffic?

My site is about a year old. Back when I was first getting started a good friend of mine gave me a few relevent backlinks to help me get some traffic on some older pages he had.

I have been working on my site for a while now, but never really worried about PR, I wanted to get some content before I started working for backlinks.

Yesterday I created a list of 150 related sites which I could try to get a backlink from and installed Googlebar to take a look at my own PR.

To my great surpise I found out I have PR 5 on my homepage! I have about 60 backlinks, but only 5 of them are non-dmoz. Upon further examination it turns out that my friend put me on some of pages which have PR 7-8! Woohoo!

Question:

Should I even bother getting more backlinks?

If not, won't getting backlinks provide new avenues for people to find my site?

If so, will 150 "regular" (non-mega-PR sites) links get me some more PR points? Is it worth the effort?

Thanks all!

IMO you can never have too many backlinks

I would tend to agree to build as many as you can. Obviously you have many competing time pressures so it's impossible to know exactly how to spend you time and money, but more links are good.

The other caveat is that of those 150, you will only get a fraction of those actually linking to you.
