    I have access to a PR5 forum. The links are all "follow".

    There are maybe 100K threads (pages) on the forum, and I can post links in a thread.
    But individual threads have PR0 (it's just the root that is PR5).

    How should I use this forum most effectively?

    Is the value in anchoring my links? Or will I get good PR out of it too?

    I suppose you'll get some benefit from posting?? Or maybe this is one for the future - when pr does filter through to sun pages, it will be much more effective.

    Im not an expert here though, someone else might have opinion...??

    Have you tried searching for site:domain.com?

    That should pull up the most "powerful/high PR" pages towards the first few pages. If you then have SEOQuake installed you can than check the PR of the pages on the first page. That way you can find pages that actually have PageRank on the threads. Chances are if its a PR5 domain then there will be a few PR3-4's threads on the forum. Those are the pages that you'll want to post on to get your PR links.

    If that thread is totally irrelevant and I posted, won't they just delete it and ban me?

    Depends how clever you are with putting in your link.

    If it's hard to get links onto high page rank threads, are the PR0 threads useful?

    Better than N/A's thats for sure. Generally speaking though if you are strategic about how you post on a forum you *could* get away with bumping an old thread once or twice for a nice PR link.

    If I were you I'd find old threads that had pagerank and bump ONE and add some insightful feedback and/or an update about whatever the content matter was. Keep in mind this will work best if you have provided helpful info on recent threads, don't just go in and start bumping old threads.
