How valuable is it to have, lets say, 1 incoming link from a PR7 site?

Will this one link give you a major boost in the search engines, if your site is PR0 and has no other incoming links?

It can be quite valuable -- but note that PR is assigned to a page, not a "site". Also note, the "vote" that page passes on to each of its target pages depends on how many total links are on the page. If you are one of three links in the content area of the page, you get quite a boost. If your link is in the footer, and the page has 150 outbolund links, then you get only a smidgen.

Probably not with google (atleast initially -- if your site is new), unless it is one of the best authority links that you can find and you have a decent long tail.

The benefit passed by the link depends also on how related the pages/sites are.

If your site is about "widgets"; if the linking site is about "widgets"; if the linking page contains "widgets" on title, URL, headers; if the link itself contains "widgets" in the anchor text and is surrounded by words related to "widgets" ... then you're talking about the link of my dreams.

I'm going to find out what a PR7 will do. I purchased a PR7 link for $480 / 6 mo. on a gossip blog. I used the anchor text for a secondary page in our site that is a PR5. If it goes to 6, then I'll be thrilled, I guess. If it doesn't, money not well spent.

You mean if you start ranking or if you see green? You'll definately see green, but a lot of the benefits in the SERPS might not be apparent for a while.

I check it every day in of course the toolbar. I read somewhere that it lags actual, so maybe in a couple of weeks it will get updated.

Hi,
I have a doubt here. I have a new site and i have PR 0 how many links are required for that site to take the PR to 6.

It's not just about how many links you have on other sites. There are many more factors requiered for a good PR.
Does anyone of you know how long it takes before your pages are getting a pagerank?

No change. The linked page still sitting at a PR of 5 like most of the rest of the site.

here's the example:

i had blog of 400 incoming links that boost me to PR5

now i have other blog, that is linked by 8,000 websites with strong PR, and it got me PR4.

The differecne is my first blog contained almost no outgoing links and about 30 inblog links (to my blog posts/pages). It got quite boost in PR.

THe socond site I have has hudreds of links out/link posts, so it jumped only to PR4 with 8,000 inbounbd links. It is estimated to get PR6 soon, though....

Wow. Is this kind of thing common? I'll admit -- I'm just getting started out ... just started building sites at the beginning of the year ... getting a little bit of page rank here and there on some of them. But I guess part of me is surprised to see that this type of transaction takes place. How common is it? And then part of me, the more logical part, is not quite so surprised at all ... business is business - and if a PR7 site can sell a link, then why not?

Interesting. Will have to look into this more, see where I might go about buying some inbound links.

If only buying inbound links were so simple. I know someone that worked with an SEO and bought a PR7 inbound link for $600 a month. The SEO recommended 3 months minimum. Her site never moved from a PR3 during those three months and never improved ranking.

I used to spend several days a month working on links. I used to be fanatical about my link list. I just looked, something like 2,800 directories from DMOZ on down. The last time I opened the file was in early December - I can tell from the file date.

Now I've gone natural. Since then I've picked up two .gov links and a couple of .edu links too.

Build a quality site, submit to the right directories and the rest will come.

My site has been up and running about 3 months, 4000 adsense impressions, 2,000,000 adwords impressions, and I'm a PR 5 with 1 link from a PR 9, is a PR 5 good for 3 months?

A waste of time in my view. It takes a minimum of 3 months, and usually longer for any link to have its full effect. Since you're buying for the full effect (not just an extra link to improve traffic) you would only begin to see the effect when you're money runs out.

More importantly is the effect of links dissapearing. What does Google think once it realises after the link rental lapses and you no longer have it? Surely if it is meant to be impressed by the acquisition of high PR links it has a correspondingly dim view when it gets lost.

High PR is great, but it doesn't compensate for a crap site, or a lack of semantic linking and structure. I personally view this kind of thing as old school.

My main competitors buy links by the hundreds. This was daunting when I began to compete about a year ago. However we have rapidly caught up. One of them has over 25000, I have 500. Most of mine are low PR but on target from a semantic point of view.

In my opinion PR was great when it represented the best way to check the 'value' of a site. Google have moved on and I believe the PR indicators act as a useful marketing ploy for Google and less of an actual influence for webmasters. They still have some value, but you'll get further getting 5 lower PR links from related topic sites than one high PR on a blog.

Build a quality site, submit to the right directories and the rest will come.

The future is not for people who have $600 to spend, but rather those with $600 spent wisely to promote an already good site.

I'll probably renew it so I keep the credit.
