Beware of dropped domains with fake PR

Domaining,in simple words,is buying and reselling of domain names,and its lot like a real estate market,you can't guess all the frauds that can happen and some domain names would go for high xxx $,and a better one(according to you) will not find any takers.

The price of a domain is just relative.You can't put a fixed price on any domain.The price basically depends on the potential and competitors.Coming back to the point,I was thinking of having a go at domaining by buying a couple of 'good' domains.Needless to say,all potentially worth domains were registered.Domaining has a lot of potential and there are tons of people who spend a lot of time on it.For example,Business.com went for a staggering US $ 345 million.

I was quite shocked when I saw that some of the dropped domains(the ones which weren't renewed) had PRs of 2 and 3.This was quite surprising as there are thousands of domainers checking the dropped domains,and it was even more surprising when I found that those domains had very less number of backlinks.So,beware of such fake pr dropped domains.

Not all page rank checkers detect fake page ranks.Check page ranking not only detects the fake page rank but also provides results for both www and non-www.

Some domains may be banned by google and/or adsense.The simplest way to check is by google searching the site link(www.yoursite.com).If search results appear for the site,then the site is not banned.If search results doesn't appear,its either new or may be banned.However,you can file a reconsideration request to unban it from google.

If you thinking of registering a domain,I would strongly recommend to go for a dot com.If you are thinking of registering a domain name for your blog,feel free to ask my suggestion on it.

  1. Very interesting, though I don't quite understand the concept of 'fake' PR. If a domain is banned by google wouldn't all of its PR be stripped as well?

    Thanks for the post!

  2. @Liza,
    A 'fake' pr is nothing but redirecting the google bot to a highly ranked pr site,as a result the pr will not be of the site,but of the redirected site...Its just a redirect and it won't help in any google rankings.

  4. I'm still using blogger right now. I'm not sure whether my template can be exported or not if someday I use webhosting and my own domain name.
