    Talking How long is a piece of string......

    OK, first question, how long is a piece of string?

    Second question, does anyone have a reasonable estimate on the following:
    In regards to external links to your site,
    How many PR 0 sites are equivalent to a PR 1 site?
    How many PR 1 sites are equivalent to a PR 2 site?
    How many PR 2 sites are equivalent to a PR 3 site?
    etc,
    etc,
    etc.

    So for anyone who is not clear, how many sites with a page rank 3 would I need to link my site, to be equivalent to a link from a site with a page rank 4. And so on, and so on......

    Does anyone know this????
    Let the debating (arguing) begin.

    The answer isn't quite that simple.

    Passable PR is distributed amongst the total links on a page so if there were 100 links on a page from a PR9 then I'd expect that the actual PR passed would be a lot less than 1 link on a PR5 site for example.

    Therefore, unless all things are equal on a page then it's not really something you can compare.

    There's obviously a formula for this (which I'm not aware of) but you're much better focusing on quality links from related site which will enhance the search results for your site for the particular keywords/phrases that you're focusing on than thinking too much about PR.

    Hope that helps?

    1) PR is not done by "site". PR is page specific. Each page gets its own PR.

    2) As mentioned above the number of links on a page affects how much PR is distributed amongst each link

    Maybe this will help you, although I'm not sure if it answers your question. Plus, do not take this info for granted.

    Those numbers may not be right, but it does show the logarithmic scale PR uses.

    Yeah that chart is what I was referring too.

    How many links from PR 0 pages to get to PR 1 do you think?

    I am not going to use this as a hard and fast rule, just wondering what the use of submitting to directories are for PR growth, when normally the only page that has PR is the Home Page. There must be a benefit as so many people do it........

    It could be one link, it could be dozens of links. Depends on the linking pages.
