    Hey guys,

    I am very new to domain and site flipping so I have a couple of questions.I found a domain for sale and as of now I am the highest bidder for the domain($20)Here are the details of the domain:

    PR 1
    Domain age 3 years
    Backlinks 3
    No of pages indexed 114

    1.So the question is do you think I should go for it and buy it? Is it worth it?

    2.How much do you think I can make by flipping it after adding some content and rank it on first page. I am thinking its going to be pretty easy because the competition is really low and I have the domain age advantage.

    3. I heard that once the owner of the domain changes Google demotes the PR of the website is it true? Should I go for a private registration?

    Thanks a lot in advance guys

    PR 1, meh, not bad but not that much - and have you checked the validity of the PR? A lot aftermarket names have fake PR. The age is a plus though.

    It's very hard to evaluate a name's potential value/flippability without getting more info than you should disclose in the open (e.g. niche, length of name, TLD, etc.). If you want to PM the name or more info I'll PM you my opinion, and I have no interest in trying to snipe the name or anything...I have enough names to manage loool...

    goog may (likely will) re-evalaute the PR of a site at some point after a change of ownership. Private reg really won't effect that one way or the other. PR is not be-all and end-all of name values, it's a plus but....

    Reply sent - I had a couple hiccups on bhw today, so ping me via either PM or (preferrably) IM if you don't get it.
