    Hey guys - just quick question regarding the origin of the backlinks - if you have a website that is targeted for people in Swedish, will using swedish backlinks be better in terms of PR?

    PR? Are u stuck in 2006? To answer ur question: geo targeted backlinks tend to work better but a contextual edu link from japan, for example, will piss on a Swedish blog comment.

    Using a Swedish PBN (with Swedish hosting and TLD's) would help you get better rankings if you are trying to rank in Google.se yes

    GEO target is better for targeting people of a specific location.
    You should go with this idea.
