    When I am done analysing the domains and lets say I come up with these results:

    - Excellent backlinks ( With matching PR to the domain's PR)
    - Excellent content previously when checked on archive.org wayback machine
    - No abusive/shady anchor texts ever used.
    - 40+ PA/DA
    - 5+ MozTrust/MozRank
    - Good domain age (accordingly with the domain PR)
    - No redirects found. (Can also be checked through opensiteexplorer, since if any domain is redirected it shows a message saying that it has been redirected and showing results of the original site instead of the domain that you entered.)

    Now my only question and ISSUE! If you see above everything looks in place and is the kind of website I would want to buy. But whenever I find such good domains finally I do the "site:" operator and also the "info:" operator on them. With the site: operator lets say i get 60+ Indexed pages of the site on google. But when I use the info:domain.com operator I usually see two things:

    1) I see no results. :eek1:
    2) I see the same domain but when I click on it, the goDaddy's landing page comes up for expired domains. This means its false right? Because its the godaddy landing page URL that is showing up when I use info: operator.


    Anyways how can I buy such a site then? Now there is nothing else for me to check or maybe someone can tell me if there is something missing. This domain when bought could turn out to be a redirect once I setup the site and remove the godaddy landing page. Then after a week i use info: and see a different domain. Then what?

    Or

    What if I buy the domain and it has indexed pages above 60+ but when i use info: i see NOTHING! then i try to index it and still nothing shows up after months using info:, that could mean its penalized?

    What does this all mean and how do you even go about this! Please help me out guys. :trink26:

    Happens to me all the time. A good way to confirm the PR then is to do a PR analysis of the site's backlinks. You can do this by downloading a backlink report from ahrefs, plug the links into scrapebox and run the pagerank checker.

    So if the domain you're looking at is a PR4 and the backlink profile looks like this

    PR4 backlinks - 8 (5 referring domains)
    PR3 backlinks - 10
    PR2 backlinks - 5
    PR1 backlinks - 15

    well you're good to go then

    As i said I am not trying to find out a way to analyze a domain and its value. My issue is with the info:domain.com operator and it still remains.

    Its not false it just means the domain is expired. The previous owner didnt renew the domain so you now have the option to purchase.

    good luck mate.

    Does anyone know if i use info:domain.com in google for a domain.. and it shows the same domain (godaddy's landing page) does it mean it is indexed and not penalized? so when i setup the site will i still see the original domain when i use the info: operator again?
