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.)

thorthedestroyer,
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?
