    Marketleap vs Pagerank

    Is there any reason that a site with fewer links in Marketleap's link popularity score higher in Pagerank than a competing website with a higher Pagerank?

    Yes.

    PageRank is not a factor only of the quantity of incoming links, but also of their quality. You'll get more PR if you're linked to from a PR 9 pages than if you're linked to from one, or several PR 1 pages. A high-PR page passes more PR... so not all links are created equal.

    Marketleap's tool focuses solely on quantity.

    You can have literally thousands of PR1 links, and have lower PR than if you got 1 link from a PR10, as Fatnewt has said.

    Think of MarketLeap's link popularity count as being a completely unprocessed, unrefined number. The true value of your incoming links only becomes clear when you have categorized all of your links based on what sites they come from.

    Thanks for the great info! So the true value is more based on what Google does correct?

    How does one go about getting quality links? It seems as though it comes down to basically asking the websites for links or am I wrong?

    Basically you are correct. One way I ask for links is to put a comment on every one of my pages asking some people to link to the given page if they think it would be useful to others. It is a great way to get free links as lots of people are happy to provide links to their favorite pages and websites without asking for anything in return.

    also marketleap data may show multiple links over. so if you got a sitwide link on a forum and those show in yahoo and a few other engines well that is a lot of low power links.
