    I rank number 2 for a very competitive keyword. Been there for months. This site was preBHW so its never had much black hat done to it.

    Recently Im noticing a lot more backlinks that I have not done myself. They are really crappy type comments and xrumer blasts, and ALOT of them.

    They are linking to inner pages as well as the home page.

    Im hoping to not lose my ranking, but there doesn't seem much I can do.

    Would high PR backlinks combat it? and is there anyway to make it stop?

    Happened to my site as well.

    Ignore those, and keep building your WH links.

    Well you should always be building high PR links.
    There's no way to stop it. But your site seems established, I don't think it will hurt you, it will probably end up helping you.

    1) yes this an be a problem if your mass spam linking index is already high - but if you have say 10,000 healthy quality links they will have to point many many thousands of crap links at you before it even makes a dent.

    2) based on what you said they don't seem to be doing the crappy links right )that os to say linking wrongly). I don't want to say here what they need to do to take down your site properly as they very likely read this forum.

    PM me and I will analyze and tell what you can do to help yourself, if there is anything other than just keep building good links - which might not be the best thing to do - you could actually make it worse doing that if you don't be very careful about where and how you build.

    PM me and I will say somethings off camera to help you.

    I should have mentioned, I still do build between 500 and 1000 quality backlinks a week.

    Do you think I should up that number, or just hope it evens out.

    As has been said as long as you already have good quality backlinks and you keep building them I think this will only help you. Keep us updated as to any changes in serps if you can.

    If you site is older and established it will have no effect on it, if it is a new site then you might have issues.

    I tend to agree with this. The linking issue, really, is in your outbound links more than in links. As long as you aren't LINKING TO crappy sites, those linking to you will not be a big deal.

    Cool. Now you can do a few blasts using keywords and the domain name only and you have your diversity covered.

    Do the links bring you any traffic? If they do then why worry about it?
