    Basically what the title says, Is having backlinks on https pages more valuable than having them on http, does google care?

    I don't think so. Not sure where you heard that, but I've never heard that. :)

    nope the real value of a link is on the PR. Not even the .edu/.gov have proven to make serious effects on SERPS only the PR of a site is what really matter.

    Same as far as I know.
    Make sure the https version of the page is indexed.

    Good question, I don't really know either ... But I am thinking that because https allows for data to be transmitted securely over the HTTP protocol, this will be seen as trustworthy and Google MAY place a higher precedence with https links.

    Please clarify my post if need be, this was just a guess and this would be something interesting to learn...
