    i've seen many people are selling DOMAIN NAME in DP SALES/BUY section.

    I am surprised to see that they dont have any content over their website.....
    but still they are of good PR ranges from 2,3,4,5, even 6 as well.
    BUT NO CONTENT, just ADSENSE code on first page.

    These domains are presently hosted and having just one Home page nothing else

    so i have one question regarding the same...

    How is that possible?
    Is it good to buy such kind of domains?

    thanks.

    Yes, it is good if you know what you are doing. If you don't know, then I suggest you stay away.

    Basically, if you know what you are doing (have experience) then by all means go for it. However, if you are a total newbie at buying/selling/managing domains then stay away.

    I would be careful buying a PR domain name without a website. Check Archive.org to see if there has ever been a site and double-check all the backlinks to see if it's legit. A lot of times people will forward their domain name to a high PR site to pick up a "Fake PR" and then sell it.

    I think you also want to factor PR carefully into your decision. Presumably a high PR domain name with no content is a mistake waiting to be corrected by Google. On the flip-side, if the domain is also a four letter dictionary .COM, well, that's probably a pretty good pickup.

    i think this is what happening there....
    it's a 6 letter .COM ext. not content, domain is live live since Nov, 2011. Just a home page with adsense code nothing else.
    still having a PR 5, and thats really surprise me.
    i think you have made a very strong point to it.

    @ readezarchive
    Sure, checking the backlink support is a good option too.

    i might look into this, and check if back links are still there or removed. What are their sources?

    Hi nshadab

    When you see a domain name which has any PR, but no content, this means that there had been a website, but not anymore.

    A domain will not get any Google PR if there is no content.

    What happens is that many of these domains have expired. People are buying them up and reselling them while PR still shows at Google.

    The problem is that once PR gets updated, many of these domains may lose their PR.

    If you do decide to buy such domain, it is very important that you develop a website quickly and ensure that you add new and unique content. At the same time you may need to work hard at promoting the site in order to get visitors and valid backlinks.

    Even in doing this, your PR may fall (or maybe stay the same) at the next PR update. If it does fall, you will just need to work in order to get it up again.

    If you do want to buy a website with PR, rather look at buying an existing website, which had a fixed PR for at least a year.

    you can use many domain parking or SEDO.com
    they use domain parking, it mean just change the nameserver into domain parking services and they start for selling it.

    but, why this domain also have PR?

    You can actually check if the PR of the domain names you are interested in are real or fake by typing "info:domain" and "site:domain" on Google, where domain is the domain name and extension of what you want to check (i.e. bluewidgets.com). If the results show anything else other than the domain name that's in question, it means that the PR is fake and the domain is only being redirected to another domain with the real PR. This is part of how I do my due diligence whenever I consider buying high PR domain names. I hope this helps :)

    you need to check more on the domain name before purchase
    - age of the domain name
    - make sure it never fall to sandbox before
    - check all the backlink
    - check their traffic
    - check alexa ranking
    - make sure the PR is real

    Buying domains without content is quite common. Indeed, there is a very active market for buying and selling domain names without content. You can view some of the previous week's sales at DNJournal.com/domainsales.htm. This last week, for example, GiftBasket.com (which was a domain name with no content) sold for $350,000; and there were hundreds (or probably thousands) of sales at lesser amounts.

    Don't get too excited by this. Unless you are very experienced with this domain market, you will probably lose money if you get involved by trying to sell domains.
