    Is it really possible for a site to be a pr 3,4,5 with only 20-100 crappy backlinks, Im looking at some sites and they pass the fake PR test but still looks fishy.

    thanks

    Depends on what backlink tool you're using, remember many tools don't show all the backlinks.

    You can also use 301s to pump link juice into a domain and that won't show in the majority of backlink tools.

    As Autumn said, you don't know if site's have link juice being passed via 301s. I have a PR5 site which only shows a few backlinks - all the link juice is coming from a 301 on my old domain.

    Are you talking about the main domain or some inner page, because if it is some inner page then the page rank from the main domain gets passed on to some inner pages, it's mathematics, otherwise it could also be a fake page rank

    yea Im talking about main domain, how safe are those 301s, or I should ask, if google sees that, is that an immediate ban?

    Google actually recommends it in Webmaster tools. 301s are completely legitimate.

    Are you asking this question because you are thinking about buying it? If so be careful because once you have bought it he can redirect his 301 elsewhere and your page rank will plumet.

    I'am in the domain game, i buy and sell everyday its very easy to spot fakes 301's etc

    If you dont have domain research tool or something like this there are sites like checkpagerank.net you also need to check yah00 site explorer for bk links and g00gle info: name

    Here if a quick fake pr3 up for sale at mo http://www.google.com/search?q=info:domacigallery.com

    If you really want good high pr buy a pr6 and bk link to your other sites

    Whether the PR is genuine or not, I would be wary of investing in a domain that only has a few crappy backlinks.
