    I have a "good problem" here lol, I wanted to see how would I rank with fake PR domain and what I did is I just scraped tons of articles from popular websites, around 2000 of them and uploaded them on my website, I have around 500 categories and 1000+ tags. I waited a week or so to get some pages indexed by Google and then I 301 redirected ALL of pages to high PR websites so that every page would get some PR (I randomly redirected to PR1, PR2, PR3, PR4, PR5 pages while root domain was redirected to PR6). Oh and to get pages indexed, the only thing I did is that I made a sitemap and submitted it to webmasters tool..

    Since then, already 12th day, I'm waiting for PR's to be faked but it still has N/A instead of expected PR6 (fake PR6 of course)..

    I decided to check if there was some message in my webmasters tool's account, maybe Google couldn't access website or something like that and when I logged in, I saw that website had 6000 impersions and 20 clicks!!! even though it is redirected, it still had 90 impressions and 5 clicks yesterday for example..

    Webmaster tools say that website ranks #9 for a keyword with 5.6$ CPC and 1k exact searches, that keyword doesn't really seems low competition as there are several .gov sites in TOP10..

    Also webmaster tools shows that around 100 pages of the website ranks in TOP10 for some keywords and they all are receiving some impressions daily..

    What do you guys think about this?

    GWT shows you the rankings (and impressions, clicks etc) of the websites to which you redirected your site, it's not the rankings of your scraped site.
    It goes the same with inbound links. if you 301 redirect your website to website B for ex, you'll see in GWT the inbound links profile of website B, not yours.

    ohh....and for PR to be updated, 12 days of waiting wont be enough, you need to wait for global PR update

    Those websites that I have my website redirected to, are huge ones and i really doubt that they are only getting 6k impressions in 12 days :) So I don't think that info is correct..

    well, you probably see part of the picture since data still need to be accumulated.

    besides, no way GWT reports that it's your data and impressions since your scraped website redirection method is 301, i.e. a server redirection. which means, the GWT and G Analytics codes wont load/trigger on direct traffic, so it's definitely not your stats.
