I am new to link building and require a little advice. I am in contact with a drop catcher company who have a large range of good ranking websites that are completely relevant to my company. Some of the websites have been registered with them for only a few months, but they still have the ranking history attached..right? Is there anything I need to be concerned about when link building with a drop catching company?
They have a high ranking .org website that they bought a few months ago. Can google pick up that this domain is no longer owned by an official organisation. Is it worth getting a link from?

They won't be doing any link building for us. I'm negotiating some links on sites that they own.
I initially contacted them regarding a link from just one good/relevant website, not knowing that the site was a drop catched site or that it was owned by a 'drop catching' company. They then presented me with a handy full of relevant sites that I could add my links to. My main issue is getting links from sites that have recently been drop catched.

I can't really answer your question then, although I read somewhere that Google was being much more effective at spotting site being drop catched. If you buy a new url, you have to be sure, it has not been "off" for months before it went live again.
