I had 1 page with about 50 links, so I divided it into 3 pages with about 15 to 18 links per page. The first page got a PR 2, the 2nd and 3rd pages got a PR 0.

From a usability point of view, I thought having a small amount of links per page was good for the end user. Should I just put all the links back on 1 page?

Were the 2nd and 3rd pages assigned PR0 or are they simply awaiting a TBPR update? (i.e. how long ago did you split the pages?) I'm not a believer in the toolbar, but understand your concern as PR0 links pages makes link development harder because of the mass amount of people who put faith in it.

I split the pages a month ago. In the recent google update, my link directory main page got pr4, all pages below it got pr2, and 2nd and 3rd pages got pr0.

>>> all pages below it got pr2

So there is more than page 1, 2 and 3? Remember too that PR updates do have a cut off as far as how long before the update it was found (IME).

For me personally, I would rather be place on a page with 15-20 links (even a PR0) than on a PR4 with 50-100 links. Once you get beyond 20+ links on a page, the PR passing doesn't amount to much anyway. I don't use PR to determine whether a link is beneficial.

For a page dedicated to links, I would say don't go less than 10. If you have valid content in addition to links, maybe 5. That's my opinion.

I would certainly prefer the PR4 backlink. From my experience the PR transfered is not exactly analogical to the off-site links a page has.

Additionally, a PR4 page is considered many many times better in Google's eyes than that of PR0.
