HI all!

I am a newbie at this and I have a question regarding, links and Page Rank.

I have noticed that many of the pages that are ranked well with google have many (3000+) links linking to them. But some have a relatively low Page Rank (3 or lower)

What is more important to rank well with google?
Many links or a High Page Rank.

With this I mean that many miscellaneous links may result in a lower PR, then few high quality links from high PR sites.

A few thousand low PR links (from different sites on different IPs) with anchor text that uses several variations of your target search terms is a lot better for ranking high in the SERPS than a handful of PR6 and 7 links. This has been and continues to be my experience at least.

Google uses more than 100 factors in deciding which results show. PR is one, link anchor text is another and on-page factors such as keyword density plays a strong role. No one thing does it.

Be aware of the many factors and try to balance them out.

When I do a search for my keywords, I see links to my site (I still can't find my site though). When I do a link:mysite it shows nothing? If you aquired theses links this past month, will they show in the next PR update?
