How important is PR?

Hi all.
Well all the time these days I keep hearing that in order to get high rankings I need to get High PR,etc etc.I wonder how important PR actually is..so that I can shape my strategies according to that.If I ask you to give a percentage to all of the things that are used by search engines to determine the rank of a page ..what would be the percentage of the importance of PR?

PR is determined by the number of links, and as the numbe rof links is most important, PR is most important. A high PR site will beat a low PR site in the SERPS.

ALot of people see PR as just that - an indicator.
But how did the site get that PR? By links. A PR10 site will have more links than a PR5 site. And so, by saying "Is PR useful", you are effectively saying "Are links useful", which is a definite yes!

Backlink which are judged relevant by whatever criteria Google is currently using. The measure of relevancy use to be anchor text, but today it means at a minimum links from site with content that is closely related to your content or information. Value 65.

Good Title 15
Page content 5 to 10
Hypenated domain name with keywords 5 to 10

Quite right - if Google is moving over entitely to an expert system, then the priority is to get related-topic links from other pages. directories and link exchanges are the simplest ways to build these.
