Hello Guys,

I need some advice on how and where to buy an aged domain (or a site) with good reputation, which has some PR3-5, and quality links pointing to it?

I've checked what webmasters on DPforum offer, but most of them are of really low quality, I spent much time and couldn't find anything suitabe..

Do you Guys have some ideas where to look for a good site/domain within my budget (500 usd)?

Thanks in advance!

500 might be a bit low for all you're looking for.

Probably it's not too much, but I don't need a web portal with lots of pages and a sophisticated CMS. I'm talking about a plane html site with 5-10 pages indexed by G with some PR on.

I need this site to support my link compaign.

So where do you think I can find what I need?

Just Google buy used domain names or something like that.

BTW, if you are doing this for your link campaign, you would want to be sure to buy a domain name that is keyword related to your site. Google is beginning to crack down on things like that so you could end up hurting yourself more than helping.

Thank you zeekstern, I'm absolutely agree with you.

I've already purchased a 1 year old domain with PR3 - Tech related. It was an expired one.

By the way, when you are buying an expired domain, you can check it's relevancy in Webarchive (http://web.archive.org/)- it showes how a page looked like in the past. So you can see the content a page had before expiring.

I don't really know how my new Tech site will behave, but I hope Google will like it ;)
