    There is a website that has always been a mystery for me, hes got a PR of 5, 12 Backlinks, it started showing up at the end of last year so its fairly new.

    The site's ranking is pretty impressive and almost all of the pages have a pr of 1 - 3

    BTW, it had that PR 5 since before June 2013


    Is there something going on behind the scenes that I'm not seeing


    thanks

    You don't know that there wasn't any PR update since, like, January, or something?

    It is not the quantity of links... I see at least one pr6 page pointing to that site.

    Even if there was an update in January, I have personally never seen a site get a PR of 5 from having just a couple of high PR links, either way, the PR is just part of it, I doubt its fake since the pages within the site rank very well.

    You Shouldn't post their site here. How would you like it if someone did it to you?

    Also they could be blocking those backlink checking tools using robots text.

    If you find a few good PR sites linking to it then that's the secret.
