    Hello,

    I am new to this community and looking forward to connecting with everyone.

    I recently purchased the PR8 domain/website ladirectory.info on Flippa and I am wondering how I should monetize it. Please let me know what you think?
    Thank you everyone for your help!

    Sorry to let you know, but the PR on the domain is fake.

    If you check using archive.org you will find that the PR was obtained by a 302 redirect to
    www.aun-sec.org, here's the link.

    the PR 8 was valid. but doesn't have enough strength to keep it on PR 8. that why i ask him to find quality links to defend his PR from falling.

    A few things to ponder upon,

    Why then would the previous owner redirect the domain to aun-sec.org, which is a university website having a PR of 8 ? Why would anyone redirect a directory domain to a university website ?
    Arefs.com shows the number of backlinks as 79, this is no way enough for a domain to attain a PR of 8. Most of these backlinks come from pages without PR and spammed links such as http://www.christiansoulmates.com/backlinks.html and http://www.emv-software.com/somelinks.html

    I am surprised no one was able to spot the 302 redirect on the flippa auction page.

    I think @vinith98 is right , I have checked in archive website

    but want to know , we can create fake page rank by redirecting any high page rank website to our website ? if that page has 8 website page rank if we redirect in to our website so our website page rank will be same as first website ?

    I see you have a 30 day period for your links. That's typically too short. You'd want to offer a yearly price and maybe a permanent price. Take a look at the pricing for the larger directories to get an idea on how much you can charge.

    Also, people are going to be very wary of a PR8 website that doesn't have much history behind it. so you'll have to work on gaining people's trust and convincing them that the directory is established and thre to stay. Investing in a well designed unique template will definitely help towards that.

    That's what most scammers do. When a low PR domain is redirected (301/302) to a higher PR domain it acquires the PR of the high PR domain. You can read more about this scam here.

    I think you would have better luck turning it into a blog, rather than as a web directory on a .info domain.

    I'm pretty suspect of the PR here... Its pretty hard to believe that a domain obtained VALID PR to a level of 8 in just over 9 months. I hope you did not pay too much for it. If you did, you got taken.. I guess I'd just concentrate on trying to monetize the web site in the short term. Please don't run around touting PR8 Web Directory like a lot of the dirt bags here at DP do.... Its fake, fluff and short lived. Eventually that PR is going to tank.

    If it is a legit PR 8, you could Focus on Los Angeles and market a directory of LA businesses.
