PageRankis a link analysis algorithm, used by the Google Internet search engine, that assigns a numerical weighting to each element of a hyperlinked set of documents, such as the World Wide Web, with the purpose of “measuring” its relative importance within the set. The Google Toolbar’s PageRank feature displays a visited page’s PageRank as a whole number between 0 and 10

Webmasters tend to keep a track on PageRank, which helps in measuring the effectiveness of backlinks to their website or blog. The biggest question is how many backlinks do you need to move your Pagerank up. It’s not only the amount of backlinks, but the quality of those backlinks as well

Although nobody can determine Google PageRank values, the table below gives a fair representation of how many backlinks, of certain PageRank values are required to achieve a certain Google PageRank.

How Many Links Required from pages with PR -> 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
To Attain Desired PageRank (PR) -> 2 101 18 3 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
3 555 101 18 3 1 1 1 1 1 1
4 3055 555 101 18 3 1 1 1 1 1
5 16803 3055 555 101 18 3 1 1 1 1
6 92414 16803 3055 555 101 18 3 1 1 1
7 0.5 Million 92414 16803 3055 555 101 18 3 1 1
8 2.8 Million 0.5 Million 92414 16803 3055 555 101 18 3 1
9 15 Million 2.8 Million 0.5 Million 92414 16803 3055 555 101 18 3
10 84 Million 84 Million 2.8 Million 0.5 Million 92414 16803 3055 555 101 18

 

It’s important to remember that obtaining links from high PR sites is not the only criteria – The amount of “PageRank value” (also called link juice) that this link will pass depends on the PageRank of page divided by the number of outgoing links on Page

PageRank Value = PageRank of page linking out / number of outgoing links on Page

From the above chart we could conclude that getting a few backlinks from very authoritative sites will improve your PageRank much faster then getting hundreds of backlinks from low quality sites.
