    Hi I posted a poll asking what type of links people would favor for a new domain:

    1) mass spam links like xrumer and pligg links
    2) just a few high PR or high page authority links (like Angelas type links)
    3) You would be happy to use a combination of the above

    Please reply and say why you choose as you do...

    Fewer, high PR links, but not the ones Angela gives out to everyone too lazy to get their own decent backlinks.

    A PR5 will do the job of 100 or more PR 1/2 sites, so it's really about saving time.

    Thanks for that, but if that is the case then with a single xrummer blast I can get around 250'000 or more links and many of those will be low pr1 or so links, so statistically wont I get a better result with masses of low pr links?

    I think people focus way too much on PR level but to answer your question....
    What we are wanting is traffic that converts and does whatever it is we want them to do on our sites. Backlinks for page ranking increasing our SE ranking but high PR sites will/should get more traffic on their own. E.G. An e-whore site will do better with a backlink from bodybuilding.com then 100 backlinks from knitting club sites. You might as well double up and get backling crediting and some free targeted advertising.

    However, why not do both? Use the automated programs to spam everything while you are researching and focusing on the quality links.

    PR is just a quick reference of your Google strength. However, since Google doesn't always show you all your backlinks and doesn't constantly update PR's, they don't really mean anything.

    It's the backlinks you want. You will gain more strength from a few higher PR ranked sites because it gives you validity rather than a bunch of low-end spam links.

    Feel free to take a look at my blog, I could help you out with those PR backlinks :)

    Im guessing though that to look "natural" to Google and fly under their radar, you would need lots more low pr links coupled with less high pr links and would then benefit from both?

    And what about relevancy, how much of a factor is that currently in back links as far as Google is concerned?

    That is another myth that gets passed around a lot. Sure, it's good to have
    relevant links and Google recommends it, but links that are not "relevant"
    also count.
    The Drudge Report was put on the "map" the day he broke the news that
    President Clinton was having an...er, indiscretion with a young intern named
    Monica Lewinsky. THOUSANDS (maybe even HUNDREDS of thousands)
    of sites linked to him that day. Many of them were not in his "niche".

    If you leave out great sites because they are not "relevant" to your niche,
    you are leaving a lot of money on the table.

    Hi Revit, I realise that all Links "Do Count",
    but my question is take a pr 4 link for example that is related and a pr 4 link that is not related.

    Will the related link give you:

    A) siginifantly more link Juice.
    B) a little bit more link juice but not a lot.
    C) No more link juice than an unrelated link.

    ?

    Perhaps the related backlink will give you more benefit to the keyword you want to rank for and thats it.

    well

    i belive that you need to mix things up, and this is why....

    Get a few thousand directory submissions (maybe on autopilot) and let them trickle into your site over the next 6 months, this will help your site look like its growing... you could spread the directory submissions out to 100 a day, they may small PR but they look natral and have another purpose i will discuss next...

    Now after you have done the tedious directory submission, go find some ******** blogs on topic with your site, and hit up about 100 a week. spread them out, looks natural, higher PR... but also

    and heres the point

    When a competitor site tries to reverse engineer your site to find out what backlinks are ranking you so highly, they aint gonna see 5 PR6 links and no others (we hope) Your gonna be burying them beneath a ruck of other links...

    Now your final step is to reverse engineer the top ranking sites, find what links they got and get the same ones. ofcourse you got more already, so you outrank them....

    anyone else care to differ?>

    I'm with djlest - as long as you can trickle feed the weak links it's good strategy for cloaking your really powerful backlinks. I'm lucky that I'm in a niche that's typically whitehat and under SEO'd so I can then get my competitors links and beat them at their own game.

    Unfortunately my main comps are the actual product providers, so nobody's gonna genuinely link me when they can link there...
