    I did the site and info search and it looked legit:

    But look at this:

    Besides using rankchecker, how could you have known this was fake?

    I was hoping for more specific advice than "use Majestic SEO."

    Well in this case it's simple old Majestic that gives the game away.

    There are no links, period... It's as simple as that...

    Check backlinks, if no backlinks or the backlinks are shit, how can it have any PR? Check with ahrefs, majestic, and/or opensiteexplorer - if it looks meh then it's most likely fake.

    OR probably super rare case links from crawler block domains ..lol

    Yeah how do you know the links aren't just blocked?

    But I figure like a PR5 domain with 20 backlinks probably isn't legit PR5, even if rankchecker.com says it is.
