    This is a bit random and maybe pointless, but just wanted to hear people's views on how pagerank is calculated - I'm only starting this thread because I read another thread about a pr6 site that ppl were saying wasn't genuine because the backlinks didn't add up to pr6.

    Anyway, looked today at my linkedin page (for one of my sites), and it has a pr6! My site only has pr4 (was pr5 until the last update).

    I have looked at some other linkedin pages and they mostly have lower PR so just wondering why my page has pr6 - I do have a link to iron my homepage and obviously it might be pulling PR from linkedin homepage, but just wondering if anyone has any views on why it has such a high PR?

    Also, is there any value in a link on the page back to my site - as it would probably be no follow I'm sure?

    Thought this was worth a bump seeing as I did make the original post at 1 in the morning:)

    Hah! I just saw that my husband's linked in page is a PR5 and he just has 4 connections.

    It looks like linkedin has a great system of spreading their pagerank around so that their members benefit. Why some members get more than others I'm not sure. My husband's connections seemed to have a PR n/a but I'm thinking that has to be an error. If your connections have a high pagerank then the mystery is solved there.

    Links from the profiles seem to be do-follow so definitely link to your site. Even if it were no follow it is a PR6, low OBL, targeted link.
