Mystery (to me)

Threaded View
Someone has linked to me from The
Google bar shows PR7 for this page.  If I try the same URL but with the
preceding "www" -- -- it shows PR2.
What is interesting: the same experiment with all the other pages on his
website consistently shows the same results for both "www" and "non-www"
addresses of the same page, which happens to be PR7.  Only one page, which
contains a link to my site, shows different results (with and without the
"www").  Am I getting PR7 or PR2 here?  I have some reasons to doubt the
integrity of this webmaster, generally speaking, but in this particular case
I just don't know...  Will you please help me understand this?..  If you
feel the specific URL for the mystery site may help in your analysis, I will
send you one privately; my e-mail: markashell [at] earthlink [dot] net

Two different URLs, two different PR values ... in other words, their
PR is split as they are apparently (due to the higher PR) promoting
the non-WWW version of the URL but some people have linked to the
page[s]/site using the WWW variant of the URL.  Would only takea
couple or so links to get a PR1 or PR2 going for it.

Eh, don't really know - I'm one of the folks who rarely look at the PR
value of a site or page.

Could be getting part of the PR7 - but it depends on how many other
links are on that page if that PR7 is of much value by the time it is
divvied out. There's more to thoughts of how much PR may flow your way
than the PR value display itself.

Paying for the link?
Or just a link exchange in hopes of building up link popularity?
