    It's actually made my sites go up quicker and for less resources.

    Every update Google does more or less does this for my sites haha. I'm loving it :)

    High PR links combined with good content is a killer combination.

    Yes. Since 20% of our traffic came from google search. But we were able to quickly recover the traffic by posting high quality and highly engaging contents which became viral through bookmarking and social media sites.

    what all precautions you tak while doing SEO?

    good! Thanks

    what is the reason? Is it the number of tags you put in every post?

    Great to know! Do you know the exact reason of the advantage of your website over others?

    Writing good content that gets picked up by FB and Twitter and people share your page on their sites.

    Any links that you paid for, traded, or in any way shape or form went out and got you'll be hit by an update.

    So to answer your question, viral content

    High PR links can be achieved from the high PR websites. If they link to your blog then you will get high PR links.
