Many websites homepage has a big PR, but most of the websites inner pages has a way smaller PR. Example even warriorforum homepage has a PR 5, this forum section has a PR 3 and this new thread i just created has a PR0.

So basically if i post my link on this page, i get link juice only from a PR0? same goes for other websites. Plenty high PR websites out there, but if you check their new articles post, you can see that each new post has only 0 PR, so if someone from a high PR website includes your link into new article post body, that means you will be getting link juice only from a PR0? or you still get some juice from the homepage PR too?

    A page's PR is not related to the homepage PR unless they are linked (i.e. there's a link from the homepage to the specific page or vice versa)

    You're right. So basically, the two spammy links you're putting in your signature up there are only getting you PR0 or PR N/A links.

    When people try to sell you pr9 links for $2, they are scamming you because your link won't be on the homepage, and you're actually getting pr0.

    A page with no external incoming links can still have PR because of the other internal pages linking to it. For example, if I didn't build ANY links externally pointing to my homepage, but I do to all my blog posts which have a link pointing to the homepage, then the homepage will get link juice that way.

    In summary, there is no "domain PR", each individual page has it's own individual PR. You're not getting PR5 links everytime you make a post here.

    The answer is in the name - PAGE RANK.

    The juice you get from a page is based on that page. So if your link is from a PR 1 page - the homepage PR is irrelevant.

    Don't worry about it. What really matters is your content, and whether the link is somewhere that you will get real visitors from. Just getting links for PR effect is becoming less relevant than it used to be.

    Don't focus on PR - just focus on visitors and sales.

    Ok, thanks for your anwers, i understand now, but i just want to ask one more question.

    So basically the same goes for keywords rankings as well?

    I mean when it comes to keywords rankings on google, 10 backlinks with a specific anchor keyword text from a PR 1 pages is less value than just 1 backlink with a specific anchor keyword text from lets say PR6 website?

      If by PR6 website you mean PR6 web PAGE then that would have massive link juice compared to the 10 PR1 pages. PR6 website doesn't exist.

    So basically submitting your articles for example to ezine articles is a waste of time in most ways. Because all articles pages are still 0 PR. Or some facts that you don't get any backlinks juice from the homepage is a wrong fact.

      Basically yes, if the goal is SEO benefits. No, if you're posting great articles that you use as a means to be found by people on whose blogs you'll syndicate articles that entice blog visitors to visit your site.

      That is absolutely false, but I would expect that answer from someone who sells profile links. Profile link sellers have used that line for a long time to try to justify the worthless links they build.

      If the link is on a PR 0 page, it is a PR 0 link. End of story. Makes no difference what the PR of the home page is. It is called PAGErank, not DOMAINrank.

I understand that it is called PAGErank, but that is only a label.
          I understand. You are trying to justify the links that you sell. It just is not true though. A link off of a PR 0 page is the same whether the home page is a PR 0 or PR 5.

          Now if there were a direct link from that home page to the page you are linking from, or at least maybe 1 or 2 additional hops to the page, and providing that there were not tons of outbound links on the pages in between them, then yeah the new link could have some additional value. With no direct link between them... well, there is a reason it is a PR 0 page. It's pretty worthless for a link.

              ROTFLMAO! If you can't justify 'em, who in their right mind would buy 'em?!?!?!

              Like I said. Used to think you were a bot. Now I know exactly what
              you are.

        All this time I thought link sellers were BSing clients just to make the sell, I guess some of the link sellers actually believe the BS about domain PR.

    Anchor text from a PR N/A or 0 page is not worthless, especially coming from a well written article page and respectable website. While a PR page will offer more benefit, a non PR page is not garbage. I'm just saying this through actually measuring results.

    For instance, submitting 8 articles to 8 different websites will, most likely, raise the SERPS for that keyword. Even if all article pages are PR NA.
