to build to PR 4 on your site you will need several thousand links because of the competition. but, you need to be concerned with the links, not the PR as stated above.
believe me, he will need several thousand top quality links for pr 4 with his targreted phrases. They are all national level keywords and pr will be slow to build.
If he was targeting local levels, he could do it with a few hundred, but on a national level, he will need much more.
Fabric - Blinds - Lamps - Mirrors - Interior Decorating - Home Decor - Area Rugs - Comforters - Curtain Rod - Sculpture - Fur - Fabric Store is showing 33 k links in yahoo and between 9 and 14 k links for "home decore" and the quality of their links is not to shabby.
How did you come up with that number?But for the sake of analysis, let's say he gets 5 times better links, he will still need over 2 k links minimum for PR 4 (same PR of the site analyized).
1-10 of 1,840 for linkdomain : www . rentaldecorating . com - site : www . rentaldecorating . comHere is a pr3 site with between 3 and 8 k links Home Decorating Ideas - Decorating Tips for Apartment - Home - Studio - Dorm - Rental Decorating Digest same keywords.
This is not an easy target for a beginner in SEO.
The "Site" command is not a proper way to check backlinks the correct format for yahoo backlinks is link:cPanel?......
Here is the correct yahoo results https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.c...wm=i&bwms=p&bwmf=u&fr=yfp-t-471&fr2=seo-rd-se
linkdomain and site command does not give accurate info. this is from the yahoo main site, if you go directly to site explorer it is the correct command.
But the above link count shows Inlinks (29,420) on yahoo. this can vary from data center to data center
I didn't use the operator to show indexed pages, I'm showing you what Yahoo displays as backlinks from other sites.Linkdomain works on alltheweb and altavista. Site command only shows indexed pages. not links
And the entire internet is a numbers race. and looking at the links that this site has. over 85 % of the pages the links comes from have decorating, decore, home decor, rental decor in the title. and in the content which makes them HIGH QUALITY!
Depends, if it's not topically relevant it's not.The average PR of the links pointing to the site is 2.2 . It has 1 .gov and 2 .edu links whach are real powerfull and creates authority when the gov and edu's link to you.
How about the pages?64.8% of the anchortext is "Decorating" This means 10k links from quality, related and high pr sites are linking to this site with the anchor of "decorating"
This does not convince me that increasing PR is based on having more incoming links then a random site you came up with or any site for that matter.and i came up with these numbers with professional SEO software and the experience of SEOfor many years with major online retailers and over 300 sites to the first page of google, yahoo and msn, altavista and alltheweb for millions of phrases.
The -site command in the query is to produce the backlinks from pages outside of your main domain.The link is directly from yahoo, and i already explained that you corrupted your results with a "site" command in it. The results are from internal and external links pointing to the site, therefore, and credited link.
That is what you get if you do a correct backlink search.I also stated that you can get different results from different datacenters., but 2,200 is way off.
Like i said if a .edu or .gov backlink comes from a topical relevant page then you have a strong backlink - otherwise it doesn't mean anything.Next one, another quote from you "Depends, if it's not topically relevant it's not." They are OVER 80% Topicaly correct as you state, and they are SEO Relevent.
My backlink search is from Yahoo, if you have a problem with it, take it up with yahoo, i also get similar results in altavista and alltheweb. Google only gives a sample of links.
So if my backlink results are wrong, then Yahoo is wrong and you are right. So, you are now smarter than the engineers of Yahoo. Congratulations!
And again, the links are topicaly related. Please try to understand the basics.
