Where do babies come from?
Where does PageRank come from???
No, it's not a naive question, I'm as serious as I can be: where does all the PageRank "wire" come from?
All sites inherit it from somewhere. They all come from somewhere.
We know larger PR sites "pass it on" to smaller sites, which will "inherit" a smaller portion.
Where do the "big dogs" get the PR from? Or: did Google just "give it away free" in the start to let's say 10...100...5000 sites so that they have plenty of "PR source" to spread to others?
It's a bit weird... because you can grow your PR if enough large sites, high PR trusted authority (yada-yada...)... etc. sites link to you.
So: does Page Rank come from anywhere?
Does it really come from somewhere?
I know it's differently measured today, but can you have high PageRank by having links from tons of small PR pages?
Let's say you have 100 links from PR 4, 50 links from PR 5, 10 links from PR 6 sites - can you reach higher PR, e.g. PR 7, PR 8?
Is PR exclusively dependent upon what links you're getting - so, is PR a source-dependent metric or: does it also depend on content?
(otherwise said: can you increase PR with content/user metrics too or only with inbound links?)
