They show Jan. 19 for backlinks and Jan. 25 for PR
For example, I used to have a site (not gambling-related) that had never had more than 50 inbound links, 1-page design (!!!) with affiliate content, and within 3 months it was awarded PR2. In 3 more months, still having a single page with 50 links, its PR was mysteriously boosted to 3! Traffic the site received was under 50 uniques/month. A year after that the site still has 1 page (the content has never been updated), same 50 links and the same PR3! And they say Google likes content and inbound links?! It definitely does, I can’t deny it, but blunders like the one I has just described show that PR and effectiveness of a site are not necessarily the same.
A good proof of the above are the free sites at tripod.
A lot of them with few links/content and PR3/4 and some with PR5.
Too many “canned marketing” out there.
PR is not allways related with traffic and rankings.
