    When buying domains with PR, You can get scammed buying a domain with fake PR where seller does a redirect to another domain to pass fake PR.

    To spot that, type this in google

    info:domain.com

    When you get the result, if the domain showing is not what you originally typed then it is fake PR. If they match then PR is legit.

    Good tip. Would be cool if you've spotted any examples of this.

    Edit: Nm, there are a bunch of examples in the thread: Godddy Domain Marketplace High Pr Domain List

    I found a fake PR domain that circumvents this technique when I was checking some domains in scrapebox and this one had a status that stayed at "parsing".

    The domain is picsela dot com.

    How do you think that was done?

    Its not parked by google. It redirects to a "google ads for search" page.

    Awesome trick. Gotta bookmark.
