    I always thought that the person with the most and relevant backlinks wins the game. Provided the pr of the backlinks and the content is always being updated. Is this true?

    Because the more I think about it, an AA list would be so easy.

    What are the benefits of backlinking to sites that are not relevant to mine?

    That's why it's not that easy.
    Relevant isn't the issue, the quality of the backlink is the issue.

    So if I had maybe 10 pr1 relevant backlinks that pertain to my niche but 5 pr5 that didn't, my pr5's would make a better impact?

    Edit: Thats a stupid question to ask when reading it over. Thanks :)

    After all my backlinking I really don't think relevant means better, you might get more traffic if it's relevant and targeted but I don't think relevancy matters much.

    Well Only Quality of the links matters

    Most definitely. I'm sure one day google will be able to sort relevant from not, but not at this time. Plus, what if a site like CNN links to my site on marijuana. They aren't related, but CNN's link would be huge. Hard for Google to establish between relevant and not, really.
