I think you may be getting confused with PR PageRank and the ranking pages
in the index(SERP). Your PR is calculated by your links going to your pages
from other sources. Links from other sources transfer PR to your pages.
Getting links is still a major part of getting ranking positions in the
indices of search engines.
Keywords placed in the body text, etc..etc are used to calculate your SERP.
So, you got inbound links(IBL's) to raise your PR. This is the only way to
raise your PR.
