    I bought the domain through GoDaddy. It was an expiring domain.

    Added my own content...now it's PR0.

    Is buying a used domain name pointless unless you can keep the old content?

    You bought the domain.
    The content that was on it before you bought the domain was PR2.
    Now you changed the content and Google doesn't like it.
    Your content isn't as valuable in Google's eyes.

    You might as well have bought a new domain for what it's worth, the only thing your domain might have on it's side is age.

    Sorry...

    I don't think google or anyone gives shit about PR these days [except when we are spamming lol]

    I once made a site using 1.2K pages of dupe content... uploaded it..
    It used a free .tk domain...
    commented on a blog, it got indexed and had PR 2 in 3 days...

    When you buy a domain with PR, you must make sure you look at the backlinks to that domain to see if it will stay that PR with the next update.

    About 70% of the time PR sticks on these kind sites. A few weeks ago I bought 2 PR2's from godaddy auctions. On one I went to archive.org and recreated the pages. That one is PR 0 currently. The other I installed wordpress and stuck on articleranks to get a bunch of free credits. That one is still PR 2.

    Go figure.

    1. check fake pr
    2. if pr is valid, build as many quality backlinks and add as much fresh content as possible to your site, the pr will up and down and be back to what it was.
    hope this helps

    Well I did upload a wordpress site with one brief post and did no link building on it for 8 weeks.

    PR dropped to 0 and all the previous links are unrecognized.

    So in the future:

    1. Fill out the site with lots of content and build lots of links RIGHT AWAY. Hope the PR stays.
    2. Fill out the site with content then dump on flippa before the PR disappears.

    Disagree.

    He just bought a domain with Fake PR. There are thousands of expiring domains with fake pagerank. I could only guess why.

    Here is a site to check for fake pr:

    http://www.checkpagerank.net/

    I also believe you stand at risk to lose your pr when G sees that the ownership of the website has changed hands. That happened to me on a pr 8 site I bought (I never made any other changes to it)!

    You found the answer yourself.

    Also make sure to hide your registration info from G!

    All previous links unrecognized = changed content.

    Done it myself with a genuine PR3 site. Decided on a rebuild so just went ahead, changed from wordpress to html and totally rebuilt the site. Different text etc etc, total rebuild.

    PR sank like a stone in water.

    So in my experience content is relevant to PR.

    I'm seeing different results from buying high pr domains.

    Entire companies do nothing but sell high pr domains. There must be some value in them.

    PR is Page Rank, not domain rank..

    If you change any page it is put up for revaluation in Google's Indexing system. If entire page is lost for new content, PR too is reset. Takes time to get back to that PR.

    you see, whenever u do something like this, there is a risk involved

    It might turn into your favor or might go against what u thougt, u never know, in your case, the pr came down to zero
    but u can still work on the site and may b in the next update, your pr increases again !
