    Stupid backlinks


    My site has been sitting at PR1 for months, 4 backlinks showing (but since the June dance #1 in SERPS for most keywords). Now with the recent update (?dance/jiggle) it finally shows more backlinks and the PR went up to 4.

    But when I check the PR of the pages linking to me (including ODP), most of them are greyed out, except for the first one listed, which is a guestbook I signed accidently (I thought it was about SPAD, the airplane. Turns out SPAD stands for "Simple Plastic Airplane Designs", and I wouldn't have signed the guestbook if I had read more of the page!).

    Even the links to pages on my own site are greyed out, although when I checked them yesterday, they were only PR3.

    Questions:
    1. What is the significance of the order in which backlinks are listed?

    2. When everyone seems to have lost backlinks, why are some now showing up from PR3 pages?

    3. Why do sites below me in the SERPS now show greyed out PR as well? As I recall, the next few in line were previously PR4 and 5.

    Those are not final post dance values and will be fixed as soon as google updates completely
