    I found a domain with below stats

    1) Domain Status - Godaddy Auction Buy Now (Close out)

    2) DA/Backlinks - Good (DA 25, BL - 1000). Domain is EMD

    3) PR - 1

    4) Webarchive - all good

    5) This domain is Ranking 2nd position for a keyword with 2000 US Searches/Month. SEMRush shows 200 organic hits/ per day for the website.

    I am mainly interested in this site becoz of point 5. (Ranking and traffic). Currently it is ranked as a godaddy parked page. (The domain says registration of xxxxx.com lapsed on 15-12-2013). The last time google cached it was on Jan 2nd and it has cached the parked page. So its already 13 days since the last cache of this parked domain and the domain is still there in position 2.

    So all the traffic is pouring into the godaddy page. My question is how long will google retain this domain in this positon? What if the domain is removed soon after i buy this? How long does google wait for removing the expired domain from the ranking?

    Not sure if it will maintain its rankings after buying, however I wouldn't hesitate buying it. I believe it would be wise to rebuild the old site and even if it looses the rankings, you can still use the domain for backlinking purposes. Definitely worth the 20 bucks or whatever the final price is, imo.

    hey OP, you can't predict when google would outrank that domain but still it's worthy to buy...as aty1985 said, you can even use that domain for redirection purpose (it holds huge backlinks) :detective

    The next time when google bots visits your site and finds none then you may lose your rankings eventually.But it is not guaranteed that the rankings will stick once you remake it but the domain is worth a buy :)
