    At one time, years ago, when Google first started, PageRank was a major factor when Google decided where a website should rank. As time went on, and technology changed, PageRank became less and less important, and new factors were added. Unfortunately, people still clung to PageRank, thinking that raising their PageRank would also raise their position in the SERPs, when nothing could be further from the truth.
    There are several things a webmaster can do, including different things related to the coding of the website, the content of the website, and yes, links are still part of it. Going over the hundreds of ranking factors in one post is not possible, but Google's Webmaster Guidelines is a good start. Google has also now published their own PDF Guide to SEO.

    High PR websites will still pass "link juice", as will any other website. However, it is not helpful to concentrate only on High PR websites, thinking that these will give better results. You should have a variety of different websites linking to yours, and don't worry about what their PageRank is - it doesn't matter anymore.

    Google Pagerank is not totally dead. It's just that Google will be updating it not often as before.

    Pagerank (the one you see through your naked eyes) is not an accurate basis when checking the quality of a certain webpage. Pagerank tools are not accurate. And those are the only tools that enable us to see the pagerank value of a page (from 1 to 10) which I believe has different data from what Google sees.

    Now, it's more on user engagement rather than looking to some technical aspects of a page to determine it's worth in link building and promotions.

    You should check domain Authority & Page Authority, and page rank isn't dead :)

    The best approach is to find websites that are related to yours - same industry, same niche. Try to get links from those. You can also get links from social media sites. If people are chatting about you in Google Plus, for example, and link back to your site, this will help to create a buzz and you're likely to get some relevant links from that. Most top SEO's believe that social links will become more important over the next few years so I'd stick with that strategy.

    If you own a business that serves a local community, i'd also try to get links from local sources. Combine niche-specific and local, and that's your winning combination. Many people who don't know SEO will tell you that backlinks are dying. Don't believe it. they are as important as ever, but they just need to be relevant to your website. Good luck.
