More important than links?
I was doing some link swapping on a site and decided to see how effective these links were.
For one example I used "filipino fourm" for trying to see if a site that had 455 links to it called filipinoes.net (PR2) came up in Yahoo!. It didnt.
I checked the number of links and PR with the first filipino fourm on the first page and the page rank was 2, and it had 53 incoming links.
Why would a site with less links place higher by several pages than a page with hunreds of links?
What is more important than the amount of links (suposing they are related to your site) that point to your site?
