Relevance *is* necessary for a link to be powerful!

Mmmm, well, I don't think that's a fair guide. If the site with no PR is relevant and the PR2 is not, guess what? I'd rather have the link from the unranked site.

Ex1. - One link from directory is worth 1000x compared to 1,000 links from noname directory submission.

Ex2. - Links from your published articles in is woth 100x compared to 1,000 links from garbage article directories.

Ex3 - One link from a "Big Name" company such as,,, is worth 10,000x compared to links from common sites with low trust.
Great post! Note that PageRank was never mentioned! There are other indications of quality that are probably far more reliable than Foolbar, I mean Toolbar PR.

I love forums. Clearly. But I don't really think they are a powerful link. Helpful, yes. Powerful? I am not so sure ... and you would think I might have enough to tell.

Tell us how you judge quality, please.
