anchor text links.

Do links with your "anchor text" in them count if the site not pr4 or more?

Hi all, If you have A "wiget" site and you have 1,000 incoming links to your site with "wiget" as the anchor text link, do all of the links get counted as a wote for your site being a "wiget" site if only 50 of the links are pr4 or better and the rest below pr4(like pr3-2)?

Yes. All the links WILL be counted as a vote to your site being a 'widget' site.

Where as PR of those sites will determine 'how much' weight each of those 'votes' will add your yours.

now this is ASSUMING that the page with your link is passing on any pr at all,

it is altogether possible that this is not the case.

Even if the linking site has a PR1, it WILL pass on some PR value - to be precise, the PR of that page, divided by the total outgoing links on that page. However if the linking page has PR0, it will obviously not pass on any PR.

true!

except it does appear that some pages are not passing pr on for whatever reason unknown to me but doubtless known to google.

... and i'm not talking pages employing clever redirects or using NoFollow robots tags and other suchlike trickery. (although these things and others can prevent a linked-to page receiving pr too of course)

How can you be certain that the PR is not passed to the pages in your case? You may note 2 important points here -

1. PR scale 1 to 10 is not linear. It is highly exponential.

2. Google servers need to calculate and ‘store’ incoming PR value for each page. So a freshly created link may not show passed PR value as Google does not calculate PR in real-time. However, in the next indexing update, it will show up the value. While Google shows the PR in integer format, actual value may be stored in several decimals. You can never know how much that has increased until you see the integer number jump.

i understand how pr works i'm just sharing my observations.

In the case with linking I believe what people say (Anchor) is more important than from where (PR) they say it. Is there ever enough?

Dynamic vs. Static - appearance is all. It’s difficult enough to teach people so I tend to keep it simple. Dynamic links whether they are spidered or not tend to throw people off. For those with first level knowledge the link itself looks confusing, putting potential partners off. <added>see [webmasterworld.com...] for an example</added> Second, as dynamic links have not traditionally been followed or registered consistently, although I do see examples showing, I’ve personally discouraged those new to linking to spend any time on getting them. Linking is so time consuming that you have to give yourself a prompt list to filter out possible partnerships. Dynamic links are top on my filter out list.

Thanks paynt, this is some great information about dynamic links that answers a question I asked in another thread (http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum12/860.htm). Hopefully my database guy is receptive to it.
