Do banners and widgets pass Page Rank? or is it just good old text links?

    Hi there, I've just come off the phone to someone who was politely bragging that they regularly pass page rank through banners and that they're cleaning up on the SEO front :rtfm:.

    Two questions

    - can display advertising banners pass page rank?

    - can widgets pass page rank?

    My SEO schooling tells me text links only pass on page rank and allow for crawling:rtfm:. Banner/widget links are not recognised by crawlers as they are in an iframe. And surely as selling pagerank (i.e links) is frowned on by Google, banners/widgets passing on page rank concept is flawed:hammer:...

    Either way, really appreciate any help/direction.

    BIG thank you, Matt
