Buying A High PR Domain

Buying A High PR Domain

This is becoming extremely popular these days, however there are many factors to consider before purchasing domains. Buying a High PR Domain can be very beneficial if you do it right. Just know, that even though a domain has a High PR, it does not mean it will do anything for you. Please see The Truth about PageRank for info.

The best place we have seen lately to purchase High PR Domains is Godaddy Auctions. Here you can sign up for just about $5, and this will allow you to see all the domains for sale. You can then bid on any of them you want, and watch the entire bidding process in real time. You can see the name of the domains, the current bid/offers, the valuation price, traffic for the domain, and the time left on the auction. We recently tried this out, and picked up about 7 good Domains for about $400.00.

What to Look For When Buying A High PR Domain

Real PageRank

The first thing you want to check is the actual REAL PAGERANK of the domain. Some people will re-direct the site to another site, thus causing a fake PR to show up, and then when you purchase it, they take the re-direct off and it’s a 0 PR. There are a few sites that allow you to chack and validate the PR of a site. Once you purchase the domain, that’s it, no refunds or exchanges. The downfall of GoDaddy Auctions is that they do not do any checks on the domain, pretty much anyone can list their site and auction it off.

Backlinks

The next thing you want to check is the backlinks to the site. A site with a PR 6 but no links is pretty much useless. In order for that domain to carry juice, it must have juice coming in, and if there isn’t then there is nothing to come out. There are a few tools to use to check the links:

Ahrefs

Majestic SEO

Open Site Explorer

Age of Domain

After that, check the age of the domain. You can use this site to check that Domain Age Tool

Blacklisted

You want to make sure that the site is not on any blacklists, for spamming or any other reason. There are a few ways that one can be reported, email, user name, and the most common is by IP address.

Past History

You will want to see what the site has been about in the past, and see if it has been part of any bad neighborhoods, as well as if it has been associated with xxx or gambling. Use these tools:

Archive.org – will let you see screenshots of what the site looked like over time

Dogpile – combines results of multiple search engines in one

AdSense Sandbox – checks to see if it has been banned by AdSense

Google – search domain with www and without

Summary

What to check before purchasing a domain:

  1. Real PageRank
  2. Backlinks
  3. Age
  4. Blacklisted
  5. History

  1. Are you sure a PR6 site with no links coming in won’t have link juice going out?

  2. This strategy is really effective, buying high PR domain can increase your traffic just like buying twitter followers.

    • Hi Dorothy,

      I have never bought twitter followers so I am not really sure about that. But buying a High PR Domain would definitely help out.

    • Hi Tim, I am so so sorry for this delayed response. Somehow a bunch of comments went on the site went undetected.

      This technique, buying high pr domains, has become extremely popular and effective, and right now, links from these high pr sites are the most valuable links you can get.

      Thanks so much for stopping by and my apologies again on the delayed reply.
      PS – If you are trying to rank for anything specific, I would highly recommend you trying this strategy out.

  4. Nice recommendations for buying a high PR Domain Justin.

    I have a question – you mentioned Archive dot org – about 2 years ago they stopped providing screenshots for my blog. Is there a way to get that started again?

    Also, do you ever use Market Samurai to research domains?
    I know they have a tool called domain samurai but I never use that one.

    • Hi Ileane,

      I am so sorry for this delayed reply, as I stated to Tim above, some comments went undetected, and I am sincerely sorry.

      I do not personally use Archive.org, but I just used it and found a snapshot from September 13th, 2012, and another one from October 2012 for your site. Are you referring to Ms Ileane Speaks site or Basic Blog Tips?

      I do not use Market Samurai either..

      When I or my employees buy domains they take into account the following:

      PageRank
      Domain Authority / Page Authority
      Trust Flow / Citation Flow
      Backlinks
      Ahrefs Rank / Ahrefs Doman Rank

      I will do a follow up post on this, and be more specific with each metric. Thanks so much for coming by Ileane, and again my apologies for not seeing the comment sooner.

    • Hi John,

      GoDaddy is a great place to buy High PR Domains, but you have to be careful and have control, because you can get into bidding wars and pay too much for a domain.

  5. What do you think about the Registrar History.
    Is it necessary that the domain only has 1 registrar.
    Or can i buy a domain with several registrars. And what do you think about dropps. Is it bad when a domain has 1 drop.
    cheers

    • Hello Tobias,

      Thanks for stopping by SEOjus and sorry for the delay.
      I do not pay much attention to the History of the domain. My opinion is it does not matter too much. If CNN sold their company and sold their website, do you think that Google would take away their authority and PageRank? Probably not, so I would not worry too much about the History, or how many times it has been dropped. I would focus on PR, Authority, & Links.
