I found a site earlier that registered their domain about 20 years. I've always been under the impression that an established site would have a good page rank even if it didn't have the hundreds of backlinks it seems is required today. They have 54 backlinks and most are pointing to the fact that it's one of the oldest registrated domains.

symbolics.com = PR0

The only thing that produces PR is backlinks.

Humm... now this is something. If it is so old then why not having atleast a descent PR.

By the way SEO is totally myth and facts. Who knows what is true and what not.

It's nothing to do with keywords, It's entirely to do with backlinks.

Because it's nothing to do with age and entirely to do with backlinks.

The only thing that can produce page rank is backlinks.
Nothing else can contribute to pagerank.

So are trying to say that if a site generates 109 baclinks it will have a PR of 2?

Sorry but I disagree with that! One of my domains has 3 backlinks and a PR 2.

just wanted to add that seo cant be both "myth" AND "facts"...since *myth* by its very definition is about fiction.

ive been number one on google for months now in a competitive industry, all through my own efforts,

suffice to say, some things work better than others...

if you need help getting to the top of the genrics let me know...

Thing is it's not just backlinks it's RELEVENT backlinks. Links that have something to do with your subject. Like if you sell cds and you a backlink form a site that sells cd players. And let's not forget fresh original content is a key part. ANd for those of you who didn't know the backlinks listed in google aren't the only backlinks you have there are more it's just that google doens't care about those. Here is a reliable backlink checker for those of you out there it's from the yahoo publisher network: http://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/
In the results just click on "inlinks".

Thank You

Can you give us an example of your site that is in position #1 for a competitive keyword.

Post the link:

If anything you'll get a backlink from the forum!

It depends what sort of backlinks you have got.
109 backlinks from spamming blogs and getting backlinks from link farms will probably get you a PR of 2, And 3 backlinks from PR4+ plus pages will probably get you PR2. But it's still backlinks that cause PR, nothing more than backlinks, It's common knowledge.

No, PR is nothing to do with relevency. Relevent links improve your SERPS, But don't contribute to your PR.
The only thing that effects your PR is the PR of the page linking to you.

This is why PR is flawed beyond repair and something we shouldn't worry about.

Do yourselves a favour and do a search on this forum for the term "Backlink" or "bl". We have descussed this topic endlessly.

In my opinion (it's all opinion) but a link that sends traffic to a site is a quality link! End of story! Not talking about a spammy "Click here to win" sort of thing but Keywords and gets clicked! One of my latest sites is 2 weeks old. It is very niche and there are 6 other sites I am competing with. It hasn't been indexed yet and so far I have 3 sites linking to it - no backlinks registered by G. I'm still heavy in the Sandbox! There are NOT 100 sites in the same niche as me! Are you trying to tell me that if I don't get those 6 other sites (My competitors) to link to me I have no chance?

Any ideas?
