    i see this site from a fiverr seller:
    alexa rank 300K+
    age: 2+ years
    PR 9, DA/PA: 43
    NO social signal to homepage.

    how is this possible? if not, can one fake these numbers?

    What exactly did you see?
    Did he send you a screenshot? If yes it might be photoshopped.

    Or did you check the site yourself? If so, these numbers are real.
    You cant fake them.

    Check the domain yourself on the official MOZ site. If the numbers match, then it's real. However be warned: Those stats (PA/DA) are extremely easy to manipulate with lots of spam. Just because the domain has high stats, does not mean it's worth it. 9 times out of 10 it has been spammed to death. Check the backlink portfolio as well, that's the most important thing.

    those numbers are from MOZ plugin, alexa, domaintools
    number of indexed page is only 1200, according to google
    i used scrapebox to check backlink, 1000 to homepage (the limit), 0 to other pages?

    among the 1000 links i got, only 205 unique domains, among which only 70 has PR1-PR6.

    how do you manipulate PR, DA? PR9 in 2 years? i'd be lucky to get PR1. only 1200 indexed pages? i have 40+ on just 3 articles.

    i guess the links are his own pbn...?

    my article has not gotten indexed in almost 24 hours.

    It's very easy to fake this stuff with 301 redirects and SPAM. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. I remember the first time I bought a PR5 domain for $70 and it sucked. Right around xmas. I was a newb just like you many years ago and the seller had me do a money order.

    PR can be faked by 301 redirecting to the main site from a PR holding site.

    Don't get stuck in those stats, PR doesn't matter anymore and DA/PA can be manipulated. I would just look at his rankings, its the best way to know if google see's that site as valuable.

    Let me share my experience buying a high PR website.
    I have bought many websites from ebay, sitepoint, flippa and digitalpoint between 2006 and 2014.

    Last December I bought a PR 4 site from digitalpoint without checking it value. The PR was attained using some blackhat techniques and I knew that won't last.

    Still I bought because the name was catchy, in smartphone niche and the price also was super low comparing to its real value in flippa.

    I just kept it in my server for sometimes without touching.
    You know what I saw on my SEO Bar when I opened the site after a month?

    PR = 0!
    Backlinks = 4!

    I contacted the seller asking why that happened, he said that I have to buy his "Monthly SEO Package" in order to maintain this status!

    Check Moz metrics to check if they're legit. As people previously said, its very easy to photoshop metrics.
