    As you can tell by my low post count I tend to read more than post redundant threads on the forums. But I can't seem to find a definite answer utilizing the search function.

    Would anyone tell me what the percentage of backlinks that actually stick and get indexed is?

    Say if google had 1,200 backlinks indexed for my competition, and I needed 1,500 to beat him, how many backlinks would I need to make for 1,500 of them to stick.

    Thanks in advance.

    Google usually shows 10-15% of backlinks indexed, however, they index more than that (90-95%).

    You get more accurate data using "webmaster tools" from Google for your site (verify your site), and you can see real actual information based on your keywords, site, backlinks, etc.

    So if your competition has 1,200 backlinks, then you know that you need at least 1,200 backlinks as well.

    Look at where they are getting their backlinks from.

    If you comp has 1200 it's not always true that you need 1500 to beat them. He may have 1200 low quality links and maybe all it would take is 100 *higher* quality links to beat him out. That could be a few articles on some high pr article directories. I know this has happened on repeated results for me. ^agreed.. you should look at where they have their links from and maybe do some research from there to see *what* you actually need to do. Hope that helps some.

    My competition has about 3 PR-6, 50 PR-5, 73 PR-4, 101 PR-3 and a few 2's and 1's. I understand I need to beat these numbers and their respective pageranks. So say that is 10% of his actual backlinks, Would I need like 30 PR-6's, 500 PR-5's and so on?

    quality goes a long way, like matt said. your question is completely relative to the quality of the links in question

    no mate... google doesn't work in that way. each link doesnt have same value. They are lots of factors here. nofollow-****************, PR of domain that sending link , PR of page that has a link to you, Number of outbound links, and much more. And these are becoming huge factor after google caffeine update. Also Pr page rank (not the domain PR) is very important too.
