And inbetween those you have some solid PR4 and PR5 original content backlinks Would the thousands of PR0 blog comments penalize you, or would they simply not count? For example, take software like No Hands SEO (which is great IMO). It creates thousands of posts for you (that can be pretty unique if properly spinned) to various blogs and platforms, and most of those are PR0. Every once in a while it'll give you a PR3 backlink. Many users of NHSEO and similar software still succeed greatly in the lower competition (1000 EM range) keywords fairly quickly So is the PR0 "link spam" penalty just a myth?
