    For example
    Code:

    as text not link would help that site for better ranking at se or google pagerank ?

    You can get stuff indexed sometimes by just having the url in plain text on an already indexed page; you can also get stuff indexed by having a plain url in a javascript.

    However I don't think it does anything to help rankings, PR, link juice etc. Link juice is based on hyperlinks, not plain text url citations.

    For every normal url / domain etc. there would be an average number of plain text urls out there; the number would reflect the traffic and PR of that URL. If your number of plain text citations goes way above the norm, that could be a sign of spamming - eg. if you spam a whole bunch of guestbooks but you fuck up the bbcode then you would end up getting tons and tons of urls in plaintext, which looks suspicious. I have actually read this idea in an anti-spam paper in a computer science journal (can't remember the exact paper though).

    I don't think it's worth worrying about myself. Just work on getting links, preferably d0follow and with good anchor text.

    It certainly does help indexing. I saw that google even try to crawl non valid text links not hyperlinks and they appear on webmaster tools :D

    like mydomain.com/12312.......

    In my opinion they would help ranking but seems like no solid case study about this.
