Default Re: How is PR related to traffic?

Yes, I agree that having a higher PR doesn't necessarily mean that your site will also have higher traffic.. PR is only an indication of how many backlinks your site has.

I can say that there are lots of sites that have higher PR but less traffic...

Page rank has no relation to traffic, Page rank only looks at inbound links, The strength of the pages linking to you helps your pagerank grow, to grow the traffic you will need to make sure the anchor text of the link is matching the search phrase you want to be found for and if possible the page linking to you should also be very relevant.

Having a High Page rank site linking to you will drive relevant traffic but mostly will just improve your PR.

Hope this helps

I have visited other websites with high traffic (ex. sedo.com) - have pr3 or 4. Other websites have pr7 or8 with low traffic. Is pagerank related to backlink mainly or what? I used to think that websites with high traffic must have a high pagerank, but I'm not sure anymore.

Any opinions?
I think there is no relationship between PR and traffic. Some high PR sites doesn't have a traffic and some low or no PR sites does have more traffic.
