I've done some competitor analysis on one of my rival business and they have hundreds of links from a single website with a page rank of 4 but it looks a bit suspicious. It looks like it may have been generated by a program, I may be wrong.
The links look like this: examplewebsite.suffix/CFTOKEN(random numbers).
Would each of these links be passing link juice?

If the links don't have a nofollow attribute and the page is indexed yes the links will be passing weight.
If there are 100 links or 1 link from the PR4 page to one particular page and no others the same amount of link weight will be delivered, not 100 times so each one of the 100 links would be worth 1%.
Don't copy it, ultimately any spammy techniques like this get caught.

Okay thank you for your reply tstolber. Anyone know what CFTOKEN might be?

I've had a search around google and it mentions something to do with session ids / cookies?

Don't apply that is could be spam.

I thought as much, I just wanted to know exactly what it was and weather or not I should report it.
