    More than a month ago, I bought quite a few (100+) backlinks from high PR (9, 8, 7, 6, ...) pages in a mix of blogroll, guest post, forum comment, profile, etc.

    But it shocked me today when I find my site's homepage PR was dropped by 1. It's a fresh domain I registered and built from scratch for more than 2 years, not one that's traded on the market.

    Does anyone have similar experience? How do you explain this and what should I do for the next PR update?

    Maybe the websites you bought PR from dropped PR as well.

    Like every once in a while, like 3 times a day someone opens a thread on this lame subject...

    Maybe best you use the search and read up on the failed metrix subject...

    But on a lighter note welcome to BHW!

    There is a likelihood that those links you bought lost PR
    or went dead (your site was removed).

    I also lost some PR, probably because I sold more links last time
