Bought a year old PR 2 domain, but there's only 14 backlinks?

    I won a domain that has the keyword I'm targeting in it (I know that's not that big of a deal anymore, but it helps). It is a year and a couple of months old and has as PR of 2. The deal just cleared today and it's now in my possession and I can build a site on it. I checked Ahrefs and Majestic SEO and it only has 14 backlinks.

    Do you think only those 14 backlinks can contribute to its PR of 2? Or do you think something happened with the backlinks? Will it lose its PR eventually because of this? Should I build links to it again to keep the PR up?

    Anyone want to do some quick research for me on the domain name and tell me what I should do? I will pay you for your time. Message me if interested.

    Two points to consider.

    1. High PR domains linking to your site could contribute to the pr2, so check how powerful those 1 are.
    2. Not all links can be picked up b ahrefs and majestic, so you might as well have more links not known to these crawlers. Who built links to this site in the past?
