    A guy I know is selling some PR links and has given me a few choices. The pricing is decent. Basically the PR5 costs about as much as one PR3. Is it worth it or not?

    What do you mean by high OBL? 100, or 25,000?

    At least 300-400+ but not 2,000 to 10,000

    So you can get a PR 5 or how many PR 3's for the same price?

    I would probably go with the PR 5 - unless you get at least 3 PR 3's for the same price..

    3 but I can negotiate out 4. So one PR5 = two PR3.

    Choose the highest PR.
    Don't worry about outbound links.

    Go for the 5 unless the OBL is over 500 I'd say

    If the multiple PR3 are spread over many different domains on separate c-class IP hosting, I'd go with the multiple PR3s.

    That's making many assumptions, I'll assume that all domains (both PR5 and assuming 5 PR3s) are not specifically related to the niche that they're linking to, and the PR5 has 80 OBL, as opposed to getting say 5 PR3s which have 10 OBL, and you're getting a homepage link on each of the different PR3s on different domains, and the registrant info is different on each of the PR3s or hidden, and the 5 PR3s are on different class-c IPs.

    The reason I'd do it that way is because there are more benefits you get from a backlink than just the PR it passes along, there's link diversity, more anchor texts involved, and the cumulative authority of 5 domains as opposed to just 1.

    Also understand, a page that has PR5 and is sitting on a website of multiple pages -- they tend to lose PR when they've added many OBL. The reason for this is not because it loses PR directly (because I think each page has a certain amount of PR they have been assigned, and how much they pass along does not lower the amount of PR it has). However, it will lower in PR because in the past, it sent lots of that PR to its deep links, which in turn recycle that PR and send it back to the homepage. But when many OBL are added (which are not recycled back to the homepage), it will drop in PR.

    In the end, the PR5 with 80 OBL may even give out more PR than 5 PR3s would, but I believe that raw PR won't get you the SERP bonus that link diversity and multiple anchor texts and the authority of multiple sites would bring. If, however, you're mainly interested in raw PR because you intend to use your website to rent out links yourself or impress article submitters to submit higher quality articles because your domain is an article directory with higher PR ... the PR5 might give you higher PR. I'd have to know the exact specifics to tell you which would give you more PR.

    Some new deals I've negotiated. So I can get a PR5 with high OBL (300+ links) or I can get a PR4 with low OBL (less than 100 links). I'd have to buy each link one by one but can get a discount across a few of his sites.

    300? 100? I hate to poo-poo on other people's business models but I absolutely see no benefit of having a link on a page with either 300 or 100.

    A page can only pass on so much PR. That PR gets divided amongst all outbound links. With 300 outbound links ... I'd be highly surprised if a page got 1/10th of the way to PR1 from a PR5. With 100 outbound links, I'd be highly surprised if a page got 1/10th of the way to PR1 from a PR4.

    If you're doing this for the PR, just follow my thread on how to get all the PR you want for free and make your own high PR pages. Scroll down the thread to where I give the squidoo example. Make your own PR4 squidoo page that has every outbound link going to your money site.

    I have consistently build PR 5 websites out of PR 3-7 homepage backlinks with 100 links on them each. I hate arguing especially when it comes to SEO because there is generally more than one way to do things in this game. But I can say 100 OBL is okay with certainty.

    Just my 2 cents.

    My advice would be, don't go for anything with more than 50 OBL. It's a waste of time & money.

    Well i think Its better to see the combination as well. A pr6 with thousand OBL is not good as compared to a few OBL pr4.
    @OP its all about the particular page rank and its OBL, as a IM you need to use your brain and find the best resources you have.
