I'm finding domains related to my comparison shopping site through network solutions and have bid on one just to see if I will get it. I'm basically only buying this domain because it is listed at PR5 with Google.
Is this a good idea? I know that the displayed PR of web sites is actually several months old so this may actually be a PR0 domain.
There seems to be a large industry developed around buying expired domains so I'm wondering why exactly people are doing it if not for PR.
I have the same dilema. I just bought a PR6 (Fake PR I would find out - newbie here as you can tell) but the domain does have about 480 backlinks on Google and about 20 or so on Yahoo.
The domain forwarded to a strong PR6 - still around, that's how it borrowed the PR. My question is, should i develope the new site with that same subject matter (not a copy) of the PR6 site to "save" the PR6? How much time would I have to do that, since it was just transfered today.
Wrong. Jtara asked why people are doing it if not for PR and there are many reasons. Just because your not aware of the reasons does not mean that they do not exist. Unless of course your an ostrich with your head in the sand.
