I am looking to start my own private network - for personal use and am looking to get an estimate of the overall purchase for high PR domains. Now, most keywords I am trying to rank are local (and I am not planing to rank super competitive keywords like porn/sex/weight loss etc.) So I believe the competition shouldnt be too bad. Therefore, i am looking to build my network with mostly PR2 - PR6. (since I read some of you claims that pricing for PR6+ is a HUGE jump). So far, I have browsed around on DP for a bit and noticed the following pricing (on average), what do you guys think? PR2: $10 - $15 PR3: $15 - $25 PR4: $60 - $80 PR5: $100 - $150 PR6: $150 - $250 Now, I've only skimmed thru their marketplace listing, so I am not quite sure if those are really the 'market standards' these days. I also noticed that some domain cost higher because they are LLLL.com etc, or with 10 years domain age. Some cost lower because they are .info or whatever. Question is, do they even matter at all when it comes to 'private network purpose'? I dont see how a LLLL domain will benefit me. Would you guys suggest asfjasfkjfasjasjfjasfas.com if its $50 cheaper etc.? Also, in regards to domain-age, does it matter at all for my purpose? Lastly, for a personal-use network, how many domains should I purchase? I know it depends what I want to build, but whats a general volume for a blog network. Any inputs will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
