keep plugging along. I found that when i focussed on other sources of traffic, my Google rankings go up across the board. also, i find traffic quality 3-5 spots give the best results for me. yes I get less people, but almost tripple the conversions per visitor as I do at #1. I care more about conversions.
think about it if you get 1000 visitors, and 3 people buy or you get 500 visitors and 9 people buy, which one did you more good?
also, google rankings is all about competetiion. every keyword will be different. I have some that rank #1 with almost no effort, and others that take months of work to get ranking. it all depends on competition.
PR really doesn't mean much, but the massive links they have do. if they have 10,000 links to the page, you will probably need at least that many.
personally, If I see the pages with that many links I look for a different keyword. Think about this, which is more effective, spending 8 months to get ranking for a keyword that gets 10,000 visitors, or spending 2-3 months getting ranking for 10 keywords that get 500 monthly searches? less traffic, but easier to rank for and faster results. and you can spend more time on improving your site and less time working on SEO.
