what I experienced over a quite large bunch of domains is (prerelease auctions and dropped domains), after getting them, setting a splash page, and submitting them into google webmasters:
* a pagerank appears on the next PR update, e.g. a reasonable one according to the backlinks
* on google webmasters, I can see the domain to get some results for some keywords or phrase
* after developing such a domain with a targeted website based on duplicated content, i get very decent results compared to a blank domain.
Thus, if a domain backlinks get somehow devaluated after a drop, this seems more a matter of partial loss than a total loss.
Question: if a dropped domain gets, let's say PR5, do you expect this PR5 to be significantly to another PR5 (in the same niche)?
