Most of the back links are from my own site (return to home links) but I do have a PR 5 site linking to me. But surely, even without external links, the 8000 internal pages alone would boost the site (given that each page starts off with a PR of 0.15 by default).
What am I doing wrong?

You do have at least a dozen other PR5+ pages linking to you, right? If not, you are advised NOT to put all your eggs in one basket. Give Googlebot lots of paths from other sites to yours. If that site is down, surely all the other sites won't be.
A directory I run lost its ratings with Google about 6 months ago. I have much time gaining new links from other tpoic related site. The site is now flying with MSN and Yahoo with an increase from the Google-Local search lately.
Still eagerly waiting to see if Google will actually have another update.
1. Has your site been spidered recently?
2. Do you get traffic from MSN and Yahoo?
Question about Google Local Search
Does Google Local use a different index?
It may add to your PR *a little*. At least it will be positive. Of course inbound links are the king but outbound ones may work more quickly.
See my true story at
The site is indexed every day at the moment by googlebot as I'm adding pages frequently. There are now around 8,500 pages and 110 back links. I believe that if I add outbound links then it will boost my PR if those sites link back to me (my vote boosts their PR which then means they have a larger PR for a stronger vote back to me).
In the meantime, I'll work on adding backlinks from other sites. Thanks.
OUTBOUND links DO NOT add to PR. They may help your ranking, but they do not add PR.
So it seems no harm to add a few good relevant outbound links.
Has you checked *yourself* that they do not add to PR?
For me the brought PR2. Not much but positive.
When facts do not corresponds to what people say I believe the facts. Probably you also.
How do you know that *small* part of PR cannot originate from outbound link? I believe you never tried yourself and just repeat otheres *opinion*.
The fact remains that I searched in Yahoo using link: and found nothing for this page. All innser page had PR0 when this page got PR2.
By the way. As you know people noticed major PR update now.
This page with no inbound links has PR5 now while pages reffereing to it from site has PR5.
Could you give me advice how can I found hidden links to this page? I have tried yahoo.
