Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
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.
1. Use PR only as basic benchmark.
2. Investigate the domain as if it were a site you were purchasing - content - backlinks, age, etc etc.
3. Keep the content relevant to what the site was.
Good luck, if you pull this off it works wonders. That's why you'll a lot of domains on Snap/POOL/ClubDrop etc going in the 1000s when it doesn't make sense from a domaining point of view.
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.
Because people are easily suckered.
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.
