    Hi,

    Some of my friends told me that PR is no more Important for google now!
    The Rankings in Search Engines will depend upon the backlinks only.. and not the PR of the site!
    Is that the reason Google has not updated the PRs of the websites since so long?
    So, is the PR game over?

    Thanks!

    I have 2 website in same niche.

    1. Has a PR of 3, and rank in Top 3 on most keywords.
    2. Has a PR of 4, and is not ranking good at all.

    So, you see.

    good keyword ranking = matching keyword to title tag, matching keyword to domain name (and age of domain), activity (i.e commenting/discussion by visitors) & backlinks

    does this mean that backlinking to high pr sites is overrated?? quantity over quality?

    PR is just a factor in the serps position algorithm. Google is adding more and more factors.

    Isn't PR just the reflection of the rank of your page depending on how many backlinks you have? It never made a difference, it just shows where you stand with google in terms of authority and backlinks, pr in and of itself never did anything.
