How to Find the Best Pages for Link Building

On a Cre8asite Forums thread, a forum member is looking for the ideal link building strategy. If you had to choose one kind of quality link, which would you go for: a relevant site with a high PR but not so many indexed pages, or a site that has a low PR but many indexed pages?

That's not an easy question to answer. If you had to choose one, more people are compelled to agree that the site with more indexed pages will perform better, even though the PR is low. Of course, PR is a metric that many people still feel should be ignored, however. But perhaps you shouldn't only look at the links -- people may consider you to be a competitor if they are a high PR site. Using that logic, you may want to go with the other types of links as well.

As Ammon John points out, this is a "situational decision." You need to evaluate your goals to see which tactic and link methodology you want to take first.

I have always been under the impression that the Search Engines paid more attention to links from sites with higher PR ranking rather than a site with a higher number of pages indexed. Therefore, I would look for higher PR ranking sites. Even though many seem to think PR ranking can be ignored, it doesn't seem to be going away. So it must still be important!

ive seen this before and mentioned that a high pr would be preferrable, thinking about this it'd be better to have a site with more indexed pages linking
