I have two quick questions on backlinks.

1. Lets say I get a backlink from page xyz.com/123 and another backlink from page xyz.com/321 will this count as one backlink from xyz.com or will it count as two backlinks?

2. also if I'm on a blog with PR5 and I go to make a comment on a post, but the post is new and PR is a 0 will this count that I'm getting a backling from PR5 or 0 ?
Thanks in advance.

Amy

    There appears top be a diminishing return from multiple links fro the same site, perhaps the second is worth 90% or maybe 1/2 of the first one, can't really say.

    For sure buying site wide blogroll entries that give you 1000 backlinks from the site won't be anything line links from 1000 different sites.

    Yea pr matters as well as, according to google patent applications and some gurus relevancy matters too. If you got a ton of links from baby diaper sites, you might find your site ranking for baby diapers even though you don't mention them.

    Amy,

    "1. Lets say I get a backlink from page xyz.com/123 and another backlink from page xyz.com/321 will this count as one backlink from xyz.com or will it count as two backlinks?"

    You'd be getting two backlinks - basically 2 "votes" from the one website, from those two different pages.

    "2. also if I'm on a blog with PR5 and I go to make a comment on a post, but the post is new and PR is a 0 will this count that I'm getting a backling from PR5 or 0 ?"

    Don't worry about it. You should be asking yourself how "relevant" this post is to the keyword term in question that you're trying to theme your own website around.

    1 - Counts as two backlinks.
    2 - Neither, its better than a link from a pr 0 page on a pr 0 domain but not as good as a link from a pr 5 page on a pr 5 domain.

    And yes, I've thoroughly tested this.

    I agree with above answers.

    Just like to add that no one knows the exact weighting Google puts on the second link from the same domain, but yes they are counted as two backlinks.

    That said, don't get hung up on quantity, focus on QUALITY. Even though you are getting two backlinks, if you get just one link from an authority site in your niche it may be worth 50 ordinary backlinks.

    That brings me to the Page Rank question.. the link is not worth as much if it is on a page with no PR, even if the domain has a high PR.

    However, as stated above, this type of link would be better than a link from a page who's domain has no PR (considering all other factors are equal).

    Page Rank is passed through pages, so if a high PR page is linking to a page with your link, the PR is often transferred through to your page over time.

    Cheers,
    Dave

    Yes, you would be getting 2 different back links as Google base back links on the bases of pages not site.

    ya you would get two different backlinks and i think you should not post comment on low PR blog as it might have adverse effect on your site's PR..

    1. you'll get 2 separate links from the same domain. They'll only differ in scores in terms of topical relevancy, but with the authority and the link juice that will pass through would probably have the same amount, depending if the links are dofollow attributed.

    2. PR from the homepage are passed through the post, the individual post can gain its own PR depending if the page have acquired external links that it may obtain its own pagerank flow. Sometimes (and this really happens), some posts, particularly those that are extremely useful, gets higher PR than the homepage itself. Basically, the answer is yes - you are getting valuable link juice from high PR sites, even the link is only on a single new blog entry.

        Check the source code. There is rel="nofollow" tag on links that are nofollow.

        There are so many tools for you to determine whether if it is a do follow link or not, Once the installation is done you can enable it then the highlighted links are the do follow.

    1. This count as two. If you submit multiple article to ezine, then you will get more than one backlink.
    2. Will get from PR 0

    And like other people say, you need to consider the nofollow tag, and relevancy.

    So for example, in a particular forum, if I have 1000 posts with my sig is almost the same as may be 20 posts with my sig, right?
