    I was reading the ebook "Google Authority Codes" By Ryan Deiss, and he states:

    "One link from a Google Page Rank (PR) 5 page is equal to getting 555 links from Google PR1 pages"

    Is this true?

    If so, that's incredible

    I'm not sure if it's worth 555 but one PR1 on niche link is usually worth more than PR5 off niche link, or that's been the case for me

    No one knows the exact equivalent of one PR5 to a bunch of PR1 because no one knows Google's exact algorithm when it comes to page rank. However, it's safe to say that a single PR5 backlink is worth WAY more than a bunch PR1 backlinks.

    Does anyone mind further explaining the distinction between a pr1 backlink and a pr5 one?

    You guys have have to know the distinctions. If you're after Page Rank, then a PR 5 is probably worth a few hundred PR 1 sites (without getting into outbound links, etc... )

    If you're after rankings, then a few hundred PR 1 links are worth more than a single PR 5 link, unless that link is very targeted, etc...

    It's all a mess so it's a waste of time trying to figure out how it all works, not to mention that it's all probably gonna change once you do figure some of it out. Just focus on building links from wherever you can.

    This has to do with pagerank passing from one page to another. SERP changes are a whole other matter. Nobody knows for sure the weighting in search rankings a PR5 link vs a PR1 link gives.

    And don't believe everything you read. Most people are full of shit and pass along information that is just wrong many times.

    analyze you competition.
    are they beating your backlinks in numbers or quality?
    if numbers, then beat them with numbers.
    if quality, beat them with high quantity of quality links.

    don't do and try to know so much abt ranking factors.
    no one really knows anything about how certain factors play a part in rankings.

    keep thgs simple.

    Think about it you can get free software here(given away by the author btw) that can go and get you articles on whatever you want and it is amazing.Now imagine what google can do to find out relevant your link is.I new to all the spammy link stuff but I'm giving it a try.I have sites at #1 with 10 links.I think automation is great ONCE you've gotten some great ,relevant links.If you start of spammy ,it's possible you might rank on the first page but if someone comes along who have more relevant links you out.
    Google has started changing already I see it,maybe in the last 2 weeks.I'm not saying google penalises you shitty links I am saying the reward won't be there much longer.
    Anyway is a PR5 link worth 555 PR1 links no.If 4 or 5 of those PR1 links are highly relevant the PR5 is some shitty spam link the 5 PR1 links win.Lets say you're niche is donuts(hee hee) then if that 1 PR5 happens to come from ,say,a donut supplier you're laughing and is worth 2-3k max pr1 links,if it coming from a thai masuesse parlour,nah not worth much at all,you get the idea I elaborated to make in semi interesting.
