    I am over a digitalpoint looking for aged domains.
    someone is selling a pr 4 domain for $30.

    I go to google and enter info: and the domain name

    the only result the comes up is the listing for the domain name.
    seoquakes states that the domain is infact a pr4.

    check the whois.net registry and the domain was registered on 2/3/2012

    how do they pull this scam off.
    anyone know.

    the website is a wordpress blog.

    Cloaking. They redirect the google spider to a higher PR site.

    interested.
    I thought if you used info:domainname

    you could always find out if the pagerank or real or fake.

    info:domain.com does show if the domain as been 301nd to another domain

    The domain has been dropped and registered hence the new date, its not a scam unless the seller claims its not a dropped domain

    I'm leaning towards it being a drop too. Odds are it will lose that PR on the next update if nothing is done with it.

    wannabie thanks. Learned something new. I though it must be a dropped domain with a good backlink portfolio, which the new owner picked up and did a lil backlinks - that can resurrect the PR, can't it?
