    Happy New Year guys.

    I'm hoping someone could shed some light on this.

    Few weeks ago I bought an aged domain from Godaddy. 10 years old and had a PR2. I started building back links from high PR sites blog comments.

    Today I checked the site and it shows a PR3. Re-checked the same with different PR checker tools and all show PR3.

    Question: How come the site's PR increased this quickly?

    The manual back links that I built would at the best be not more than 50 (It was from PR3, 4, 5 ******** links).

    It's a nice start to the new year but I fail to find an explanation.

    Head start for you in this new year and there is no need an explanation because you already stated that you have built links in high PR sites

    Yes, but in such a short span of time? I'd rather there was a logical explanation for this..maybe perhaps some 'trick' that I could use to replicate to my other sites???

    Does the age of the domain has to do with this? I have a lot of websites and this is the first time I actually see a PR increase and to the best of my knowledge, there has been to mass PR update, which brings me to the question.. does Google tend to update PR of sites individually?

    Because its aged and trusted by Google provided you can keep it at PR3 with content and quality it expects.

    So the age of the domain does play a role then. That's a first. Didn't know the domain age would play such a critical role for PR. Now I need to figure out if I want to keep this or sell it off.

    I had a brand new site which was heavily spammed on twitter. Did not build any link to it.
    It got PR 3 just from twitter.

    Guess, PR has not got much value these days.

    Time is not a fixed factor for PR increase as in your case it was very fast.

    Nothing logical about google. You don't know how Google really works, and nobody knows except, well Google itself. So, Congratulations on your PR. But it is worthless if you don't have quality content. Your website won't have any visitor

    Yep, I guess i'll have to conclude that it's just mere luck. I started building some content to promote a few CB products. Let's hope it will make some $$'s so I can make it into a profitable site.

    probably there was a PR update due just after days you started links. I've increased PR even by directly Xrumering my site.

    Don't worry - keep building links and you'll get there LOL.. do you ever think Google has eyeballs to monitor every site's backlinks, analyze them and pass on a judgement?

    That was what prompted me to post here. All my other sites are on the same PR. No increase.

    Plausible. Or maybe the big G wanted to put the PR on hold until it saw some activity. Either ways, the good news is that the site already got accepted into Text link ads. At $60 total investment, I hope to gain that back as soon as possible. I'm presently building a few hubpages/squidoo lenses to back link to the site.

    Maybe i'm being overly optimistic, but hoping that when the next general PR update is done, it would increase even further.
