    Well, I went on my site today, and just noticed my site has jumped from PR N/A to PR3, the only baclink is a... DP profile backlink ( LOL!! )

    Does PR have ANY significance?

    That's actually really surprising, especially if its only from one DP backlink.

    Are you sure there aren't any other backlinks around somewhere? How are you checking your links?

    How old is the site? There are other factors besides just backlinks.

    backlinkwatch.com only shows one backlinkwatch.com which seems to be the best free backlink checker atm


    the website is oldish, 3/4 years old. But I change it every 6 months or so. It does have 4000 pges indexed in google from various things I've installed on it, It's my... "playing around domain" :p

    It can happen one of my site is less then a year old and it has a pr4 with only like 18 backlinks, Its all about quality I think, I create about 50 post a day minimum

    Often times there are other links that contribute to your PR, but are hard to find.

    ahrefs
    majestic
    spyglass
    backlinkwatch

    They are all good sources, but still sometimes miss links.

    Also, what sapo said; it's about quality.

    PR it's a bed time story for kids....stop looking at that. It's just a myth newbies consider

    Ya, there are links you don't know about. Trust me.

    The link checker your using is pretty flawed, check out the others that
    Realign mentioned. There are a few decent onces to make up for the
    closure of YSE.

    I think you may be lucky for that when getting PR3 for your site at short time. But it depends on your domain age and the quality backlinks that you get for your website.

    PR depends of many factors, sometimes the thread which has PR is also passing link juice to your site. try to keep the PR by building quality backlinks, otherwise the next update will take it down.

    You can get PR1-PR3 without a single backlink if your site is big enough and your internal
    link structure is smart. More than PR3 will require links...
