Don't worry about a points score - I don't know where you got that from anyway!

Keep building up the links month by month and the rankings will come in time.

Page rank (PR) and Page Position or search engine rank are two very differents topics and not really related.

You can get a number one position in Google with a zero page rank.

Equally you can have 100,000 totally rubbish links to your site and have a page rank of two, yet 150 quality relative links and have a page rank of four.

A PR high or low will not make you any money unless you are selling the site.

My own view with PR is this, it can control you and divert your energies from developing your online business.

Look at it as a small cog in a massive machine, sure it needs a little attention, build good quality relative inbound links.

Bear in mind that your average customer has never heard of PR, never seen the little green or grey bar!

What are points? This the first time I've seen some mention building points. I think you are a little confused. The only thing you should worry about when it comes to PR and trading for links is if their PR is grey because it is possible their site is banned. I agree with a previous post. Just keep building links and SERPs will come with time.

Plus when you reach 10,000 whatever it is your counting are you going to stop? Link building is a continous process. You may have top rankings today but if you just stop your link building the new guy on the block will take those rankings away from you tommorow.

Too much emphasis is placed on PR, I dread to think what some will do if it is replaced. I suppose we'll see another frenzy...and I see it comimg.

If you really want to know about PageRank (PR), start with Brin and Page's seminal work here:
Section 2.1 PageRank: Bringing Order to the Web, is where the fun starts.

PR is on a logorithmic scale. Most recent estimates put the log scale between 6 and 8. Whenever a full-web PR recalculation is done, the log scale is adjusted (logically it would always increase since the intenet is always growing, never decreasing in pages indexed).

What this means is that a PR6 page is valued 6 to 8 times as much as a PR5 page, and a PR5 page is valued 6 to 8 times as much as a PR4 page. Thus, a PR6 page is valued at 36 to 64 times as much as a PR4 page.

PR is only a small part of the formula. Especially being a noob, there are better things you can do for your site than try to manipulate its PR, like providing genuinely useful content, or getting links to your site (regardless of PR).

Please note that a lot of people spend a lot of time trying to manipulate their PR. Some even lose their PR because of their efforts to manipulate it.
