    IDK it does seem suspicious. Running it through market samurai it returns these results about their backlinks

    six PR9 inboundlinks
    one PR8 (both the pr9 and pr8 are from esf.org)
    one pr4 (from nexdir.com)
    and thirty four pr0

    it's also showing up as pr8 on my end

    Whether the PR is valid or not, this site is definitely new as a directory (All the listings have been added in the last week or so). Whatever PR is has now will likely disappear on the next update. I wouldn't spend money on submitting there.

    I just did a whois check on the domain name and this is what I get

    The site does show a PR8 at my end too. It would be a record to get such a high PR... in such a short time though! :(

    Domain age 59days
    its fake and easily done. They use redirect. Redirect to google.com after few days you will get pr8 or 9 its a loophole in google pr system. Run away from this fake site while you still can

    Its a valid PR8 site. A fake redirect would work for the homepage but what about the inner pages? Did you check the inner pages??? there are over 100 PR6 and dozens of PR5 inner pages...

    This site has a valid PR8 without a doubt. I have checked through many ways and found no fake PR. However, this does seems like a quick PR boosted up before a dropped, unless site owner can hold on those PR9 backlinks forever.

    How directory with only 2 months old can archive this high PR from gained PR9 backlinks? How did they get it?
