    I've got a website and I just recently discovered that it has a PR of 1. I don't particularly care about PR as this site gets roughly 2k to 2.5k visitors a day.

    However, here is the thing that goes against everything I thought I knew.

    My site has no content...zero. All my site actually is, is somebody elses site iframed on my site.

    So, for example, lets say my site is www.example.com and there is another site www.example2.com If you go to my homepage, all it is, is example2.com iframed on my homepage.

    Also, I don't have a single backlink, literally, not a single one, that leads back to my homepage.

    Anybody else find this strange?

    Article submissions. However, as I said, not a single article (or anything else) links back to my homepage. They all link to (as an example): www.example.com/page1.htm or www.example.com/page2.htm so on and so forth.

    And even those subpages are just iframed pages...just like the homepage.

    Also, not a single subpage of my site has more than one backlink to it, and not a single page of my site links to any other page of my site. If you arrived at one page of my site, you'd have no idea any other pages on my site even existed.

    Could it be an old domain name that you bought?

    The traffic only comes from people who click on the links from my submitted articles.

    Not a single person is arriving at my site via a direct click on my domain from a search on google (or any other search engine).

    Nice traffic, must be a hell of niche... :)

    I spend months usually to generate that kind of traffic.

    Somethings working for you!

    Each article I submit links back to only one page of my domain. Like this:

    article submission 1 links to www.example.com/page1.htm
    article submission 2 links to www.example.com/page2.htm

    so on and so forth.

    and each of those pages is simply an iframed page from somebody elses site...so again, no content...at least not my own (and that is one of the things I find puzzling, I didn't think that google would count iframed content as content...you know?)

    No article links back to my homepage, not a single one, and no page on my site has more than one backlink to it.

    Just to be clear could u confirm me if this is what you want to ask...that all your articles submissions link only to your subpages whereas your homepage is also getting 2-3k visitors?

    If yes, what are you using for tracking your visitor stats? Could it be possible that the stats you are getting are for the whole site and not just your homepage?

    edit:

    Make sure your tracking is right. Find out where the home page visitors are coming from. This should be easy.

    Must just be an article gold mine.

    No, what I'm confused about is the PR and the fact that google is even choosing to recognize my site.

    I mean, I have no backlinks to my homepage and I have zero content on my entire site. All it is is iframed content...I didn't think google would even count that as a site.

    I have zero interlinked pages...I mean, really, by all standards, it doesn't even qualify as a site, it is just a bunch of doorway pages...and yet google still chose to allocate PR to my site.

    That is what I think is strange. I mean, why not iframe somebodys blog who updates it all the time and simply drive backlinks to that (I'm being sarcastic here, but only to try and prove a point.)

    Google has probably given you a PR1 simply because you're getting an astounding number of views.

    And the traffic I'm getting is sitewide traffic. All I'm iframing is a clickbank offer.

    The traffic doesn't confuse me, it is the fact that google is offering up any PR to me at all.

    I mean, my site is literally what google says in their TOS that a site SHOULDN'T be...it's iframed, no pages interlink, every page is identical to every other, and each page has no content.

    Ironically enough, I was just thinking about listing this site on flippa. Websiteoutlook.com says my site is worth $7,402.02 (I don't know anything about flipping sites, but I'm sure I wouldn't get that much...)

    I often wonder about Google's PR structure. I have a blog with thousands of backlinks about 700 visitors a day and a PR of 3

    I have another single page site (just a sales page) with about 30 backlinks 30 visitors a day and it too for some strange reason is a PR 3

    (none of the backlinks to it are anything special)

    Google does, what Google does I guess.
