PR scale strength. Is the "juice" transfered linear? quadratic? richter? Anyone know?

    Hey guys, I was wondering how the PR scale is?
    Like imagine a page with PR X.
    Imagine you are the only link on that page.

    How much link juice would you get...
    like which of the following is most true?

    imagine Y = X+1

    PR (Y) //is the link juice from this page the same as...
    = PR (X) + PR (X) //two pages of a lower page rank?
    or
    = X * PR (X) //X times the juice from a page with 1 less page rank?
    or
    = PR (X) ^ X //Even more power, exponential
    or
    = PR (X) * 10 ^ ( Y - X ) //richter scale like?

    I was just wondering.. Knowing this could help people focus their efforts on the most rewarding combination of backlinks. Please share your experiences and opinions!

    lol....

    Unfortunately you cannot look at it this way because there are a plethora of factors involved beyond this comprehension.

    The best way to do it is to grab the highest PR ranked sites and get your link on them, then turn around and get your links gradually lesser down the line.

    @Physaux: I have been trying to figure this "Link Juice" thing for a while now. It is in fact a VERY interresting subject. Please share eveything you found.

    The thing is that we cannot know for sure what the Google algorythm is but we can at least try to estimate it.

    IMO...exponential.

    However the algo's been hacked so much, you probably need another 5,000 lines of equasions to factor location such as header, footer, within content or in a sidebar, keywords slapped on the anchor (are commercial anchors subject to dampening to stem manipulation?). How about if that one link on the page is to a spam blog, does that link pass the same weight to the spam blog as it would pass to a reputed domain?

    I could toss out another thousand variables that may effect the value passed to a link. My advice is forget any sort of detailed analysis of Pagerank computation, you can't measure it properly anyhow since the toolbar is stale and inaccurate plus it's not granular enough it would need to display down to a few decimal points.

    Hmm yea I see, I know the concept of linkjuice is very complicated, and I myself haven't really done any research about it unfortunately, I just thought about it and asked the question here lol. And for the other people, I know there are many more factors which could negate any difference brought on by these factors, but assuming everything else was constant (the same), what do YOU think the "PR scale" behaves like?

    I would personally think a page's PR is actually decimal, but is only displayed to us rounded to the nearest integer. I also think that it would be richter, stretching from [0 = nothing] to [10 = most popular in the internets] :eek: . So for all you know a 5 (4.51) could be almost the same as a 4 (4.49), and three 4's would be better than a 5. Who knows...


    obviously the real answer is "stop thinking about it and build more backlinks"

    :D

    there is no point in figuring this out... it is all varies in relation to how popular your keyword is anyway it's basically supply demand and how much authority the high pr site has. The older & more community based the more the link is worth not pr wise but google placement wise...

    Some of my websites are 1 month old and rank #1 on google for 3 letter words against competition that i've copied that has a pr3-4
