Link building on recent drop catched sites?

Hi All,

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?

Drop Catching Company is nothing related to link building. You can use them if you are a domainer, and want to buy domains from them.... but do not consider them for link building, AT ALL!

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.

My mistake.

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.
