Someone with more knowledge please correct me if I'm wrong... but in essence, to get a high pagerank you need to have a link to your site on other websites with a high pagerank. This is why you see these new link ad programs everywhere. Instead of charging per click or view, they charge a flat monthly rate to put your link on hundreds or thousands of their sites.
Well, if you want to get good page rank then you have to get good quality back links. also try to submit your site to free directories and get some back links from high PR site. it will help you to get good PR. good luck
First off dont worry about toolbar PR. Common mistake for newbies. Instead worry about the 3 core components of SEO:
1. Relevant authoritative back links. Link baiting and social media.
2. Accessibility in themed structure. Making your website easy to crawl and index. Information architecture is key.
3. Basic on-site SEO factors. Fresh original content.
The most important thing you must understand when working with link popularity is that every page is treated as a separate entity. What this means is that internal links, that is links between the pages of your site, do count. In fact search engines make no distinction between those links and links from other outside pages. This is something that many people get hung up on, they do not understand why search engines would count internal links. What they don't realize is that there is really no way to tell if a link is from an internal or external page, since some sites span multiple domains and multiple sites can exist on one domain. As such optimizing your own internal site links can be as important as gaining new links from other sites.
Another issue that some people get hung up on is that they think that reciprocal links can hurt you, meaning if you link to a page that links to you then you will be punished. This is not entirely true. Search Engines actively seek out artificial linking schemes and some link exchanges can be seen as such, however they usually just devalue the links rather than penalize the sites involved. So while link exchanges are good, they should be entered into with some trepidation.
