    I keep seeing these type of jobs on fiver... "I will give you a PR6 ******** backlink via blogroll or guest post on my blog for $5"

    They have like 450 positive comments, have been a member for nearly a year, I message them ask for their blogs, they send me the links to their "PR6", "PR7's", loads of blog posts from People who've brought their gigs on Fiverr... I review their blogs it's PR6, look at their backlinks "zero", look at google to see if the site is indexed.. it is..

    I'm 100% sure they are fake PR's, because they have little or no backlinks most of the time, but how can they be indexed by Google Still? and why no negative comments?

    Check this site out http://www.wildanimalpark.net/ PR5 which is index by Google with no backlinks? LOL SCAM?? Over 400 people brought this link for $5 that's $2000 he/she has scammed!

    It's because people probably have zero clue that they are fake pr, or even that fake pr is possible. They just assume they are getting a high pr backlink for $5.

    I ran that one through a couple places and the PR looks legit (do correct me if I'm wrong). It's an oold domain that they probably snatched up at a good time.

    That's not to say that the PR won't get slashed with one of the next updates, but they seem to update it with mid-quality content.

    You mean when you try to buy SEO for $5 it might not be reputable?

    Shocking!

    No, the pr is real.

    I don't know how they do it but the pr is real.

    Ha, I know why they have such a high PR.

    That domain name is older than your mother.

    Check it on archive.org

    They do redirects, it doesnt help them or anyone else rank better though and eventually Google will ban them. The only way they make money is selling links and selling high PR sites, they are scum!
