    I've got this guy trying to sell me links on his fake PR 9's, and 10's which are showing up as PR 9's and 10's when I check them, but I'm wondering how google may view it? The links are pretty cheap too.

    Not sure how he's doing it, the 10 has 3.5k backlinks and has no english on the site.

    Anyways, wondering if anyone's had any experience putting links on these and how it fair'd out.

    Just finally recovered my rankings! And don't want to screw around with them, would like a little insight before I consider messing around with these.

    Thanks.

    If you just recovered your ranking(s), don't purchase links on these sites. They have a fake PR which isn't going to pass any link juice to your site and on top of that, he's probably selling tons of links on these sites which means they more than likely have high OBL's considering he's probably selling these links to people and website owners who don't know better.

    PR spoofing is a bait and con game.

    Con those looking to buy Hi PR links
    Con those who are looking to buy your website and think it's hi PR

    It doesn't con Google, if anything the opposite is more likely to be true

    Stay well clear.

    "Fake PR" - isn't that what happens when someone points just (one or two) high PR links at a site before a PR update to pass a PR to that site? And then, removes that flow after the update?
    That's what I always assumed happened... so if that's the case, of course it will pass PR, or 'juice', as long as the source 'juice' flows to the 'fake PR' site.

    But presumably, given it's been such a long time since PR update, the source juice no longer flows...
