We have gotten about two dozen Yahoo links to pages of this type and about 30 similar ODP links. Plus there are numerous links to such pages spread across the web.
Do such deep backlinks contribute directly to the PR of our homepage at [press.exampleURL.edu?...] Or is there no connection?
To state the issue more generally, does the PR algorithm at least in part create the PR of a top-level URL from the totality of backlinks to all pages on the site, no matter what level the pages are within the site? Or does the PR of the top-level URL depend solely on backlinks only to the top-level URL?
Thanks for your thoughts.
