Having a backlink on every page of another website

Hi all,

A friend of mine has a website which is relevant to my website. it is a PR4 and on the right of every page on his website he has 4 relevant outbound links one of which are mine.

my problem is that yahoo has found my link (using the link: search to test) but it has linked it from a deep page which has no PR rather than the main page which is PR4.

although its a valid link my site is not getting the PR4 link juice which i was hoping for.

ALL the other 3 outbound links on every page listed with mine on my friends site all have their backlink listed in yahoo from the MAIN page with the PR4. So in turn are receiving the link juice from the higher PR home page of the site.

e.g. their link was descovered on www.domain.com with a pr4

mine has been discovered under www.domain.com/otherpage.html which isnt ranked by google.

my question is will yahoo discover my link on the main PR4 page too like the other 3? or as yahoo has now found a backlink to my site it will no longer list any more from this site.

1. It probably doesn't matter what the backlink search result shows. Yahoo knows about the other pages.

2. Discussion of Toolbar PR, imo, is almost irrelevant to discussions in the Google Search forum and more so in a forum about Yahoo Search. You may want to consider not using toolbar PageRank as a metric. Even Googlers state that people are ascribing too much to PageRank itself [seroundtable.com]. So if that's what a Googler feels about the real PR, what do you think that means for the simulated PR on the toolbar?

3. Other backlink searches to use:
linkdomain:example.com -site:example.com

This one restricts the backlink search to a single domain:
linkdomain:example.com site:example.org

Don't worry about it too much. As martinibuster said, Yahoo doesn't even use PageRank. PR is a metric used only by Google.

Also, when checking or backlinks, use Yahoo Site Explorer instead. I'm quite certain the home page backlink was indexed as well.
