    Why does Linkedin outrank in authority over Google's own email service? I can't possibly understand unless they apply their own algorithm to Google's own products. Realistically speaking though, PR is nothing more than how much Google trusts a site to stay healthy, grow, and have fresh content. Who would Google trust more than Google? Linkedin I guess.

    PR is an archaic way of measuring authority. It doesn't mean a site will rank better.

    For your specific example, people link to LinkedIn all the time, how many people post links to Gmail? I haven't checked, but I would also expect Youtube to have a higher PR for the same reason.
