    Its not the number of links but the weight of the links.

    I clicked on one of the sites that showed up on "link:" command, viewed source code and searched for "aellam", nowhere to be found. Does that mean he uses cloaking?

    Hi Aspen,

    I know its not the number of links and that´s why I´m asking. As he has so few and a PR of 7, that means he needs a link from a PR 8 site, which I can not find.

    That´s why I was asking, how he could reach PR 7.

    Hope to clarify my question.

    Who said you needed a link from a PR 8 site to get a PR of 7?

    Hi Aspen,

    I don´t know why you are trying to argue with me.

    IF you know much better, it would be nice, if you could explain me on the example, how he got the PR 7.

    I don´t think that 20 links from PR 4 sites get you a PR 7.

    Am I right?

    thanks for the explanation

    He's got 70 incoming links.

    It is possible to get a 7 from only that many incoming links, even if they are only from 4's.

    The formula for how much weight a link gives is this:

    We assume page A has pages T1...Tn which point to it (i.e., are citations). The parameter d is a damping factor which can be set between 0 and 1. We usually set d to 0.85. There are more details about d in the next section. Also C(A) is defined as the number of links going out of page A. The PageRank of a page A is given as follows:

    PR(A) = (1-d) + d (PR(T1)/C(T1) + ... + PR(Tn)/C(Tn))
    So there you go. Divide the PR of the linking to page by the number of links on that page and you get the weight that that link gives.

    So if you got a link from a PR 4 site, and you're the only link on that page, you'll probably end up with a PR of 4 just from that link.

    Do that a couple times and you end up with a decent rank.

    The only way to get PageRank is to get incoming links. There is no other way. If he has a PR of 7 then he got it via incoming links. End of story.
