Site A has a PR4.
Site A has an inbound link from Site B which has a PR7
Site B checks the page the link is located on and confirms it has been spidered and index. That internal Page has a PR5
Yet Google does not list the link from the link command or from the Toolbar?
Why doesnt Google list all the inbound links...esp from highly ranked sites? And of they don't, do you ever really know if that link counts toward your link pop?
Thanks for any enlightenment.
A search for links to my site will pull up the student's site, but a search for link's to the competitor's site will not show the student's page. Ironically a link was placed to my competitor in about May 2001. When I found that page in November 2001 I asked for a link to my page as well, which he promptly did. So I got the advantage of a link, but not my competitor. Weird, eh?
Since this can work both ways, I am a bit concerned as to the quality of PageRank.
On the other side, the links that are shown, are on pages with PR4 or higher. However, also links on pages with a lower PR still count.
a student has created a page with several (about 15) links, including links to me and my competitor. A search of links to my site will pull up that students page. A search of links to my competitors site will not pull up that page. Why? Other links to my competitors site do show up, but not that specific page.
It is the one weak spot of Google's public relations campaign: they tout page rank as a great thing (link popularity is indeed great) but when they provide link popularity tools to the users they are shoddily implemented. I wonder if Google's behind the scenes link checking process is better than what they make publicly available through the "link:" command.
To top it off, my personal homepage, which has no links (I checked through my logs: there are no referrers) is a PR3 page.
