    PR3 with no backlinks

    I've noticed there are lots of domains that reach PR2 and even PR3 with no backlinks at all. Correlates with PR4 and PR5 domains that I know of that have very few backlinks (not from high pr pages either).

    The one thing in common for all of those is age. In a way, I think once a domain name is introduced to Google, via a single link that then gets removed, it somehow accumulates PR on its own. I know this contradicts the general idea of the PR system, which is why I decided to ask about it here.

    Examples -
    www.naturalanimaltreats.com
    www.leadsguy.net
    www.tropical-fish-care.info (PR4 with no backlinks showing up. I added some backlinks this past couple of weeks, but it really did keep its PR4 with hardly any backlinks during the last update).

    Not all backlinks show up on googles link: search, I'm not sure what criteria it uses to decide which ones it should show- i think very low PR pages aren't shown

    True, but I also checked Yahoo and MSN, and they never came up with more than 2 backlinks at most and those had no PR whatsoever....

    None that I know of. Just bought the first two but I don't think they had any redirects. Seeing the same with tons of other domains btw.

    Internal pages are usually enough to give a homepage a PR of 2 or 3.
