Searching expiring domain names by page rank
How to search expiring domains by their rank?

Does anybody know how to search for domain names that are available via backorder by page rank?

You could write a script to do that. It could be in php, perl, python, etc. The script would have to access a google server to retrieve the PR info. The problem is that, IIRC, their TOS forbids that.

Also the backlinks of expired domain won't count after it is re-registered .. so all domains are equal PR wise ie 0.

Why bother? Who still thinks that pagerank matters, especially "old PR"?

Now, backlinks and related traffic . . . that's a different matter. However, depending on what you do to take advantage of those old links to your new site, you could get yourself in a bit of trouble.

Also, if you are thinking in backlinks=traffic mode, if you don't already know so be advised that there will be lots of competition - very smart competition - for the specific domains. (That's not to say that you're not as smart. ;) It's more to say that the people playing this game have a great deal of data that they work with, that informs their purchase decisions.)

it will not matter anyway. Even if you end getting MIT's domain :) it will be reset to a big fat zero once expired.

thank you for all the input...keep it coming! I did find a website that offers you reports based upon incoming links but not PR...the more I read about PR, the more I realize that it just expires once the domain is transfered.

Is this true that expired domains have their PR reset? What about a domain with a DMOZ listing?

good question about the ODP listing.?.
