    Hey so I just bought an expired domain with pr2 which I checked.

    I visited the domain after I changed the nameservers BEFORE I installed wordpress and it said pr2.
    Then I installed wordpress and it said pr0.

    How could this happen? My guess is that the pr2 was applied to domain.com but wordpress changed it to http://domain.com/ and for some reason the PR disappeared because of this?


    Any help is appreciated :).

    Dont worry. Just solve all the problems from your site and Let the count all backlinks.
    You PR will come again on next PR update.

    PR means nothing really anyways. What is important is the quality of the backlinks you have coming in. Also a PR2 can easily be obtained.

    Check to make sure the domain you have bought is using www or non www version. Change that in the wordpress panel, PR might be shown again. Also, make sure to check whether the PR is real or fake too.

    Add quality content, get some social signals (bookmarks, FB likes, Tweets/Retweets, Pins, etc..) and it'll be back even higher than before and in a very short period of time.

    This was the kind of answer I was hoping for :).

    It was presented as http://domain.com in wordpress, changing it to http://www.domain.com didn't help on the PR issue.

    When I am checking the old backlinks they all lead to just domain.com, but wordpress won't let me change it to domain.com as it says that aren't a valid url...


    I don't suppose there is any way to change my url to just domain.com?

    Uninstall your wordpress and install it again to get it set up at domain.com. Wait for a couple of days to see if the PR comes back. But PR is of least importance, I would hardly care about it.As long as my site's Domain Authority and page authority is high, my site will rank high on SERP with minimum work.
