    I have a domain with legit PR4 but with DA and PA under 10.

    On ahrefs.com it shows no backlinks.

    Is this domain worth anything? Links?

    If it also has some decent keyword in it, it may be worth a bit. Otherwise, reg fee, at best.

    PR may be legit, but it won't last according to the links you've stated.

    PR without any link and domain authority is worth nothing.

    Sorry to say sounds like you have a dud domain. Always check the backlink profile any domain you buy. Page rank can easily be faked so don't be fooled in future.

    I've had this domain for a while.

    It wasn't an issue of Page Rank being faked. As I stated, the PR is legit.

    I've just never seen a situation like this before.

    Did you check the PR using any toolbars or one of those PR checker services? They are not reliable at all actually. Without links equivalent to the domain's PR value, then the PR is not legit.

    Do you have webmaster tools on the domain? If so check if there are any backlinks there.

    There is a PR update due soon so if it will keep the PR soon you will know. But if the site has 0 backlinks the page rank will drop.

    So you are saying that whether or not PR is legit is based on backlinks rather than checks like site:, info:, and the stuff done at http://www.rankchecker.com/pagerank-checker/?

    I'm fairly sure PR updates aren't announced or scheduled, they just happen.

    Also if you're PR4 and have no backlinks then obviously it won't stay PR4.

    Pagerank may be due to 301 redirection set earlier. Most of the people redirect various domains to one main domain, and all of those domain show same PR as of main site. If you want to retain that PR then add content as soon as possible and add backlinks to it.

    The way you get PR is if you have BACKLINKS (with PR of course) pointing to it or internal linking. No backlinks, mean the PR is NOT legit. It's as simple as that. If you look up expired domains on expireddomains.net and the likes, you'll see many domains have PR, however, if you check the backlinks profile, there's no backlinks pointing to it.

    Those PR checker services are NOT real time. I can guarantee your domain will lose its PR in the next PR update/refresh if what you're saying is true, i.e. no backlinks pointing to it

    I have my own private network, so, I know quite a bit when it comes to buying PR domains.

    PA/DA is more of an afterthought for me as obviously it can be easily manipulated. Blast a site with thousands of blog comments and PA/DA shoots through the roof.

    PR comes directly from Google. So go with that.

    You need to look at both, all metrics can be faked on their own but its very to manipulate all metrics from different metric providers e.g. Google, OS, Majestic.

    there is something weird about this domain maybe fake PR just check using info:domain and see if the domain name is correct.
