    Hi, When buying pr expired domains, is it essential that as soon as I have bought them transfer them to my hosting and setup wordpress on them? Will the domain more likely lose its PR if I just let it sit there without transferring it to my account straight away? Thanks.

    If the domain is parked it will lose its PR, but it will only lose it up until a proper site is back in place. As long as the links supporting the PR are still intact then your good to go, but the risk of having these removed if the site is parked is much higher as well.

    A lot of webmasters use automated tools to check for things like that and broken links en masse, so the best and easiest temporary course of action is to throw up a 1 page site with a relevant article.

    There is another way - to preserve the original sight ranking you can cobble together the skeleton of the site before, even by checking caches similar to 'the way back machine' and spidering back in time with something as easy and free as htt track. It's so long since I've done that, I've lost my step by step guide, but it is possible, if you act fast - to preserve the high PR.
    I seem to remember that the key lies in google's data, they have an image of how the site(s) was or were, in their cache.
