    Hi, I am looking for some advice, I just did my first guest post on another persons travel blog. I saw it was a PR2 site and they were looking for submissions, and when I checked some of the other guest posts, SEO quake toolbar show those inner pages to be PR1 and PR2

    Now when i checked my page it is PR n/a

    I have heard that a post on a high PR page is worth hundreds of spammy backlinks. Was making this link a good use of my time (I wrote a 400 word article for it)?
    Why do some inner pages show different PR? is there some way i can get my guest post to be a higher PR page?

    Its my first attempt at more white hat link building, I can use AMR and SEnuke to make 100s of links in the same time frame, are guest posts worth doing?

    Hi there, yes the page built for you is new so it won't start with any strength, however you can build this pages trust through link amplification: Bookmark this page, post about it on social platforms etc.
    Having a link from a high authority site is definitely what you want, so I would look at the pagerank, domain authority, page authority, the amount of links pointing in and out, the velocity of links, how many backlinks the site has in comparison to how many domains these come from etc. Use the MOZBAR to check the domain authority, or simply type in the URL in opensiteexplorer. Personally I like to get over 50 (it's out of 100).
    Don't make 100's of links at once, you need it to look natural, spread it out over time.

    Even a brand new page on wikipedia or Google won't have pagerank... you need to wait until the next PR update to see it's PR rise (roughly every 3-6 months). However, the benefits of the link will apply within about a fortnight of it going online (ie when google discovers the page with the post and then attributes that link to you).

    I'd definitely recommend you read more about page rank - it is certainly not the be all and end all to tell how good a site is. Use tools like majesticseo (the free version is good) to look at the backlink profile of the homepage / other pages, etc.

    You will benefit in the best way when you submit only high quality articles as guest post. When you aim to write top quality content and the readers of that blog loves your article then they will want to read more from you.We all know that quality content is king. Having a kingship article featured on another blog can make you become exposed to free targeted traffic. This is why blog owners will only accept high quality content, because both you and the blog owner will benefit in getting traffic.

    I would recommend posting at high PR blogs instead of low PR.

    thanks for the advice, when you say you like it to be over 50 out of 100 do you mean the domain authority or the page authority? the site I mentioned has domain authority of 33/100, home page 40/100, catorgory where i posted 20/100, and my page obviously only 1/100 because its new. I think there were 70ish inbound links, but i hit the limit of the free version of opensiteexplorer


    worthwhile link?
