    Hey guys, I just found a HIGH PR link where I can comment, but it's a forum, and my comment appears on PAGE 2 of the topic, and that page's PR is 0.

    What do you think about this? Does the backlink count as pr5 (as the 1st page) or as pr0 ?

    I have often thought about this myself. I think Google treats them as seperate pages.
    So the answer to your question would be 0.

    Most of the time when people link to forum post, they link to the first page and the forum itself only links to the first page. The only way to reach the second page is through the first page in most cases.

    I could be wrong about this. I have never ran a forum but this is just my 2ยข.

    It's called PageRank because Google assigns the Rank to each individual PAGE, so yes, it will be a PR0 link.

    Yes, it will be PR0 (or maybe PR2, because there is a backlink from a PR5 page).

    It will be count as PR 0 but you can check each page's PA using moz's OSE.
