1. ## Pagerank Question

Just simple question about PR. If side A (PR4) has 1 outbound link, and that link is to site B, and side B has no returning link to side A, and side B has (pr1), than side B with time should get PR5.

Is that right?

2. No, the page rank algorithm used in the original Google paper is not defined like that. The algorithm used then was: PR(A) = (1-d) + d (PR(T1)/C(T1) + ... + PR(Tn)/C(Tn)) and I would assume there are some other changes that have been made.

Its not that simple but yes it will give some benefit in the PR for a link

4. Is that right?
No
It'd be too easy to obtain PR10 in such case

Keep in mind that PR and rankings is on a per-page basis, not a per-site basis. That said, no, your logic is slightly flawed. If page A links to page B, and page B has a PR1, and page A has a PR4 with just the single outbound link, then page A will give 85% of the PR4 to the other page. This would probably end up with another PR4 page, since a PR1 is worth next to nothing. Also keep in mind that PR is not linear -- (PR2 - PR1) < (PR3 - PR2)

6. you could test this with the PageRank Decoder at Search-This.com

the answer is, if everything is as you say, page B would have a PR value of 3.55.

That looked good until I put two PR4 links into a page - apparently the receiving page would be PR6.85! I dont think so!

Then I added a PR10 link, and it came out as PR15 lol

8. that's because you set a pages PR artificially - it wasn't calculated to a 4 - then ran the calculation. Google doesn't do that, all pages start with a 0 or 0.15 PR then start calculations.

So it's accurate if you start all pages at 0 then create the link structure and go from there.

9. I think besides this it also matters in which way its been linked for example In BOLD OR BOLD WITH UNDERLINE
