    I was wondering if anyone knows roughly how many links you need to get a certain pr.

    For example, if i wanted to get say a PR 6, how many backlinks would you need from PR 5 sites? Or PR4?

    I can't really explain, but im sure i saw something like this somewhere, please help.

    I don't think anyone will be able to answer that. It's never that exact of a science.

    yeah no answer to this, its also not just link juice that plays a part in PR.

    Ok, thanks for the replies. Is their not even a very rough amount needed?

    Because i'm really confused, I have 2 sites that have got PR 4 and 5, and they don't have hardly any backlinks to them.

    Some people have really good quality blacklinks and don't even have PR3.

    What else plays a part in PR then?

    Google some times plays hot and cold with you..
    With high pr , check domain age...and as far as building a page rank...which is something even i am trying to do...Build links from pages with high pr .
    to get a page rank of 2-3 , i think 40 -100 pr 6 links is needed.but any one who can build these links wont outsource...otherwise it will get spammed the hell off...
    But if you building a page rank of 6 ...i am not sure why you want that...as high pr doesnt mean lots of traffic...at the end of the day..its just a number assigned to you by google....and it doesnt get you more sales...but reputation yeah...

    Thats true, when i first start IM ages ago, i thought getting high PR is the most important thing i should be doing. But it makes no difference. The only reason i want to know is because im wondering why and how i got PR 4 and 5 on my websites with literrally about 40 backlinks (not even high PR), and the domains registered just over 1 year.

    Also i am starting to sell websites and good pr on the websites makes the price go up :D

    Learn about logarithms and you'll get a general idea of how to target. This is definitely a quality beats quantity thing...

    I dont think there is a rule but once upon a time I got 6000 backlinks using:

    a. referrer spam
    b. profile links
    c. PAD file submission links

    I reached PR 6 in 10 months.

    I have no idea what that would do today.

    My PR8 has somewhere on the order of 300K-500K backlinks... all of them are legit and totally organic... but it took 20 years...

    For PR2 you need 100PR1 or 18PR2 or 3PR3

    PR3 500PR1 100PR2 18PR3 3PR4​

    PR6 92414PR1 16803PR2 3055PR3 555PR4 101PR5 18PR6 3PR7​

    Based on the assumption that the page with your link has not more than 10 OBLs to external sites.

    This means also, 2-3 PR3 links can get you the same PR3 if your link is the only one on the page in question.​
