Do expired domains keep their search engine rankings?

    If people buy expired domains for the purpose of parking them, how can they continue to get traffic if it is true that they lose their rank?

    They don't keep their rankings, but since they're probably mentioned elsewhere, have links, authority and so on they usually give you a headstart - if the domain hasn't been totally burned before by another black hat.

    What if you buy them off an auction right before they expire? If they lose their rankings, then why is parking expiring/expired domains even something people do?
