    Hello,

    once I brought a PR5 domain, developed it and created some article backlinks. After a month of purchase, PR updated and the site went to PR0.

    Now I want to buy some high PR domains, so how to check the strength of backlinks before I buy the domains?

    I have seen the tutorial here to check the fake PR
    blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/domain-names-parking/406937-tutorial-methods-spot-fake-page-ranking-lot-page-ranking-7-8-9-10-inside.html
    that is really helpful, but how can I check the strength of backlinks?

    Also what precautions can I take?

    Regards

    I always look at the backlinks through either majestic seo or ahrefs. If they are high quality backlinks to the site, you should be in good shape. It's also a good idea to look at the historical backlinks. If the site is losing backlinks, there's a good chance that the pr will drop during the next pr update. I suspect that's what happened to you.
