I went to the site today to see PR5. Pretty good for a site that I have never promoted, that logs dont any refers from. And that Google or Yahoo show any backlinks to.
I did submit via hand to Google, but nowhere else is it found.
Why would it have such a high pagerank? Anyone else experiencing things like this?
Try running a backlink command on yahoo (link:) and see if anything comes up.
Most likely there is a link from one of your existing sites pointing to this unfinished site.
and a PR of five? Even if Google had found some it had calculated but wasn't yet showing, Yahoo should at least show a link or two I'd imagine. I know back in the day, a site had PR out of the box, but haven't seen that is a severely long time.
Now, does the site show internal backlinks? I mean, that would at least be a backlink or few if it did - but if none of the pages on the domain have an inbound, how would the subpages have any "oompf" to pass on?
This has happened to me a few times when I bought domains from gandi and did not publish the content for a few weeks.
About three weeks later googlebot then spidered the site, it is a large site and the internal page links/anchor text is what I think was taken into consideration to get a PR 5, in other words your linking to your self.
Nothing underhand was done to the site just clean seo work.
Every time I hit refresh on a site:mydomain.com search I get a completely different number of results.
This is common if you registered the domain and did not publish content for a few days. Many registars will redirect those domains to an error page. This error page has links pointing to it.
I have seen the exact same thing at least three times. Specifically when unparking a domain and giving it some space of its own, it takes a share of the page rank from the old master domain it was once parked against. Things settle down after a couple of updates though and the PR gained then disappears.
Why is this thread on the front page? Go to google and type in "+www.domain.+com" you will find your backlinks.
I never tried that before and while it worked on my PR6 sites, the PR 4 ones showed no backlinks outside their own domain.
plus, the PR6 ones did not show each other, even though they both link to each other.
