Expiring domain name pr

    Hi guys

    I wanted to know if any members had any info on the effect of pr of an expiring domain.
    SEMrush
    I have been offered a PR7 website that is pending deletion for $500 and was just wondering whether it is worth it?

    Is it possible for the pr to disappear after the transfer?
    Can pr be taken away before a Pr update?

    Any ideas?

    It depends, goto http://www.marketleap.com/publinkpop/ check how many backlinks the domain still has and check if those links are still live across the pages. If the links are still there then, its a good chance the pr will stay. Google usually updates PR every 3 months (well toolbar PR) so it's diffucult to weight up.

    Also check what the pagerank prediction is or "future" pagerank is http://www.seochat.com/seo-tools/future-pagerank/ . This basically checks at googles other data centres,

    Hope this helped.

    PR is based mainly on links - and then mainly on in-bound links. If they remain, so should the PR. I would do a backlink check on the domain foremost. Second, I would develop a quick plan to keep the development of the site going.

    I think people should not pay for PR. Does the site receive targeted traffic from search engines? That is much more relavant property.

    Anyone can get a pr7 by buying few links during toolbar update...

    Solid points vlasta.

    I'd much rather have a PR3 that gets over 10,000 visitors a day than a PR7 that gets no visitors per day.

    But without pr you don't get higher ranking in google...... results so PR is the factor and I think people will and should pay for it.

    That's not true - PR doesn't effect your SERPs. As has already been pointed out, take expired domain traffic over PR any time. Its a lot more subtle just raw PR - you have to factor in many things, from usability to proffesional value.

    When Google introduced PR, it actually meant something, because the rating was based on natural web structure development. Nowadays PR is mostly artifical and its value is diminishing. The more people "buy" PR, the less relevant factor it becomes. Google is not stupid.

    So, go ahaed, buy some PR and make it less relevant, owners of low-PR sites will thank you. :p
