I hope someone can clarify this situation for me :) After reading various posts about linking and page rank I think I have this right!

For example:

If a site I have traded links with has a PR of 7 on their index.html but the link page they have has a PR of 6 or 5 and my site has a PR of 4 this should help my PR.

However, if the main page has a PR of 5 but the link page has a lower PR than 4, it probably won't do me much good.

Thanks in advance,
Shawn

Hi Shawn,

I mostly agree with your conclusions.

However, my experience is that having many links from relevant sites that have less than 4PR can still help your site.

Recenlty I took about 25 new sites with no PR's and linked them all to each other, and they all ended up with PR's of 5.

So any of the above scenarios would be ok.

Shawn,

Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

PR gets added, so unless you incur a penalty every bit counts. A lot of links from low PR pages will, over time, add up.

The PR you receive from a page is (roughly) that page's PR divided by the number of links on that page. You may want to read a more detailed explanation of PR at [url snip] This is an excellent article, on its first page you will find a link to its author's equally good article on the Google Dance.

There is very much more than PR to optimizing a site for Google, read Brett's classic post at [webmasterworld.com...]

I understand that inbound links are very important for generating PR. If the inbound links are to my index.html will the links also boost the PR of my sub-pages or will it only boost the actual page being linked to?

Many thanks,
Jeremy Wise
