Well I have not checked all of your backlinks, but somehow I got the feeling that most of your BL come from your own domain.

If that's the case then theres a perfectly logical explanation.

A site cannot generate it's own PR.

In other words you need to get BL from other domains.

PageRank is not that important. It is only important when you are negotiating a link exchange with a webmaster that thinks it's all that :D

Only Google has the magical formula for exactly how many links of what PR quality you need to gain a PR6.

Work on linkexchange with other domains.

Feel free to contact me also for a swap.

One thing you will want to do is request a link change to your DMOZ listing. Sometimes it matters, sometimes it doesn't, but your DMOZ link should be pointing to http://www.vitanetonline.com/ instead of http://vitanetonline.com/, but then I see that it automatically redirects to http://vitanetonline.com/. This maybe the issue, but I am not to familiar with redirects.

How long have you had this DMOZ listing? The last update wouldn't have done anything, as all my clients and many other people I talked to only noticed a PR update to PR0 pages.

If thats the category it really is no wonder your not getting a PR6 from it. There are hundreds of links in that category and the PR has been filtered to practically nothing.

Ideally, you want all of your links to be formatted one or the other, with or without 'www'. The fact that your server will forward a visitor has nothing to do with PageRank. Google sees them as different pages and will split PR based on the link reference.

But that is just one of many possible reasons. In addition to the other factors mentioned already, you could have been a low PR 4 before, and high PR 4 now. Also, some people believe that the formula has been changing and that you need more links now just to remain the same PR.
