    Hiya

    1) Can anyone suggest me the most reliable way to find out if a domain (expired one) wasn't penalized by any G update in the past? I am thinking that if a site:domainname returns any results that means it wasnt de-indexed, however it still could have been penalized!?

    2) Also could anyone give me some tips for GoDaddy auctions? :) Is it like Ebay where people keep changing their bids till the last few seconds.

    Thanks.

    The most vital thing to check is if it has been penalized which is de-indexed.

    Another things to look at are:

    1. Check for 301 redirect.
    2. Check for quality links linking to the site

    Don't bother about tanking or negative SEO on the site... That isn't a penalty, most people here mistake losing rank for various reasons e.g spammy links, anchor over optimization, negative SEO for penalty but that isn't a penalty. Penalty is a severe restriction on a domain usually or mainly de-indexing.

    Just find a high PR domain and keep bidding..

    Here is an estimate of what high PR site is worth.

    PR2 $70 to $120
    PR3 $100 to $160
    PR4 $170 to $350
    PR5 $400 to $600

    Cheers

    Thanks John.

    I am getting conflicting information as how to retain the PR of an expired/bought domain. Some are saying it doesnt matter if the content changes, the only thing is that the links should not get 404. So if its wordpress, its a matter of installing a simple plugin to redirect any broken links (that would be links from other websites) to new pages. However I have doubts about this that when G does detect that content has changed, it would at some point review the 'value' of the website otherwise people would simply buy high PR websites and write any content that they want to promote.

    So is it possible if we take a health related website and turn it into say personal development website. The content now will be drastically different, however all the links are now being directed to new websites home page (provided the backlinking websites do not remove the links :p). Do you think this way it would still retains its PR?

    Prizes are realistic, but anything up to PR5 is low PR. High PR starts with 6.

    1 - 404 error
    use the wp plugin to redirect to home page or inner page and maintain the old pr value.
    As my point of view, redirect to ur main inner page !!
    2-content change
    try make ur blog in old niche, if not possible mean dont worry about that [ this is not much important ]
    3 - PR maintain
    Yes, find the old quality page and use the value

    If U need more details , Ping me

    Thank U
