Either you`ll have to create something that naturally is worthy of acquiring inbound links or you`ll need to learn the distinguished art of begging, borrowing, dropping, swapping, buying, spamming, blackmailing and hustling for incoming links.
Hmmnn...Pagerank update? I checked my site and still there is no changes in pr. To get high pr, you must also get quality backlinks and of course it's better if the backlinks are coming from high pr sites.
hmm Google is still updating the PR of sites. Two days before my friend was having PR0 and suddenly today he got PR2 for this blog. Completely agree with ChiefLee, PR doesn't mean anything to me either. One should concentrate more on traffic and SERP as they will benefit your site's conversion and sales.
