Is it true that Web 2.0 domains do not share page rank and so are Worthless?

    This isnt my question but I want to clear someones point here. So could you please confirm it here. I am sure that Web 2.0s help in ranking any site or video. I did a job for the client where I did submissions to the web 2.0 sites like Wordpress, Livejournal, Jigsy and other High PR domains which allow to create our own property

    He says the Web 2.0s which I did for him are worthless because they dont have a pagerank(abc.wordpress.com, abc.jimbdo.com etc). In his words he says "These are not high PR domains. A sub-domain (3LD, etc.) is treated as a different domain and do not share page rank with the website"

    I will show this thread to the client to clear his Myth. So need your help

    Please

    Web 2.0 properties which allow you to post on sub-directories instead of sub-domains are ideal. Your client is right that sub-domains are treated differently in terms of PR, unless there is internal linking from the root to the sub-domain. In either case, the page PR where the link is will be 0 since it's a new page.

    Build 2nd tier links to your properties and will gain PR over time.

    And yes, even if these new pages have no PR, they still positively impact rankings.

    Web 2.0 aren't meant to increase the PR, but to increase the rankings.

    Fundamentally, you don't care much about PR as it doesn't bring any money directly.

    However, you do care about rankings.

    PR is just based on the number of links going to it. If you have really good tiered links to the web 2.0s you have built then they will gain a good PageRank when the next update is done. Obviously when you first create the web 2.0 though it will have a PageRank of 0 but this will soon increase with a nice link pyramid below it.

    What your client is saying is true however this is true of most links and you have to start somewhere. Contextual links are way better than any other links and hence why they are great tier 1 links. No links links carry much weight without a nice link pyramid below them. You can obviously buy high PR links but these cost money for obvious reasons.

    well, then tell your client that I would gladly swap 10 pr3 sites that get a few hits per day for one "worthless" PR0 site that gets 10 000 SE hits per day ;)

    Who gives a frick about PR?

    You want high search engine ranking not high page rank.
    PR0 sites beat PR9 sites for key terms all the time

    Page rank has some definite uses, it allows you to compete quickly in terms related to your niche if you you have an authority site etc.
    But as far as search engine ranking goes? Page rank is pretty much a waste of time.

    Also - a small amount of authority (if not actual PR) is derived from the root domain PR of whatever site site you are on. That''s been part of Larry's massive algorithm right since day one.
