Hey folks- Having been practicing SEO for over 2 years now, I decided to start testing purchasing aged domains to assist, well, with several things. So, I wanted to test if a PR 4 aged domain held its "PR" after a complete switch of registrys and DNS settings and... after all, if a domain that had no back links could really have that high of a PR just by age alone. Here's how it went... For this test, I decided to purchase two aged domains. Here are the specs. Domain 1-PR 4 -3 years old -No registry drops, registry was not private -had a wordpress 2011 theme with not content installed -had no backlinks to it... Domain 2-PR 3 -6 years old -No registry drops, registry was not private -22 backlinks, 3 of which were PR 5's and one PR 3, rest were do follow. Most all are footer links and exact match anchor text to domain name. So, my hypothesis was that the PR 4 domain would loose it's "PR" the next time it was indexed. Here's the process I followed: 1. Once domain hit my account, I purchased privacy for each domain. 2. I installed WP on both domains 3. Added one fresh, 500+ word article to both domains All of this occured between 1/20/2012 and 1/22/2012. So both domains had some time to sit. This morning (12/23/2012) both domains still have had their PR. This evening, the domain that had a PR 4 and no back links dropped to 0. So, what I draw from this is that it's not good to buy aged domains with any good PR and no back links. What are your thoughts? Did I do something wrong in the process? Thanks!
