I have a site with good PR and my inside pages are getting increase of PR, but they don't have links pointing to them, only from my homepage.

Does that means that Google counts ALL links on my homepage, including links to inside pages? Does it calculate inside pages PR with one coming from my domain, my homepage, too?

Also, if inside pages that got high PR from homepage have link back to homepage, will that increase homepage PR additionally, since those links should count too?

By Google PR algorithm formula, by calculations on Wikipedia and Stanford PR algorithm explanation ( which is originally developed by ) it counts those links, and also it counts after-increase backlink again, making few times circle ( it stops because of d ( 0.85 ) factor. ), but it counts them.

Does anyone know is this correct?

Every page that links to another page, is indexed by Google, and is not somehow blocking the flow of PageRank (I.e. nofollow) will pass PageRank to that page. The amount of PR will vary based on the PR of the linking page and the quantity of links on that page but PR will be passed. At one

Also point in time, when Google's index was much smaller, if you built a large enough website and interlinked your pages properly, you could launch your site with a PR of 7 without any incoming lixnks from external sites. (Remember PR is relative).

Also, Internal links count as votes just like incoming links from other websites. They're weighted less but still have value and can significantly influence your rankings.

As always, you should not be focusing on PR. It's worth for less than you think And focusing on it is a waste of your time.

Thanks for answer. Oh, I see now... Since Google calculates PR with `PR = ( 1 - d )/n + d(PRa/La+PRb/Lb+...)` In first part, ( 1 - d )/n is case when user randomly open your page over the all other pages ( n ), so when Google had few pages Ranked that n was smaller, and now it is bigger, so you get start up PR value very small, so backlinks from inside pages with that value doesn't count much... I know that, just returning backlinks are more interested to me... :) Why not focus on PR? Doesn't that make value of your site? Also, doesn't it effect position on Search Results? – SharkTheDark Mar 26 '12 at 13:39
PR used to be important in google's algorithm. It has much less value. So much less that is rarely is discussed anymore when talking about ranking factors. And PR only measure link popularity. Not page quality or site quality. – John Conde Mar 26 '12 at 15:56

Internal links does matter for high PR in Google. But i didn't find it useful to get traffic from Google. High PR does not mean Google will index it for better position. I have sites PR 3 but got less than 50 visitor daily.
