Is this type of .edu/.gov blog comment worthless?

    I am just getting into the practice of throwing a couple of high authority .edu and .gov backlinks into the mix to ensure a variety. I was wondering about the following situation that seems to be coming up quite a bit..

    Say a .gov blog has an overall PR6 but the actual page on that site where you will be commenting (and hopefully dropping off a sweet backlink) has a PR0. Good or bad? Is that PR rubbing off on me from the overall site score?

    One more question: If the blog disallows clickable links, does it do any good to drop your link in there as pure text? Any benefit?

    YES! It's always better to have a link on a page w/PR, but, if the index page ranks well, it's worth your time!:D

    Can you elaborate, please?

    What portion of the PR is transferred, if any..etc..?

    Also I have a second question in my original post if you want to tackle it.

    You will get PR juice only if the page from where you are getting backlink does have some kind of PR and it should be a "do follow" link as well as their should not be too many Out bound links on that particluar page, otherwise might no get any kind of PR juice.

    What about the mere fact that it is a .gov backlink?

    Does a backlink on a .gov blog with a PR0 provide no benefit whatsoever?

    Never pass up an .edu or .gov backlink, period. ******** or Nofollow. They're always worth something, just like any backlink from a unique domain.

    As for how much PR exactly is transferred, people have tried to come up with graphs depicting their theories on it, but in the end, nobody knows.

    The more people that believe that, the easier it will be to take advantage of it.
