    As the above said, PR is useless now.

    Your title says you have already registered it.
    Why do you want to check the metrics now?

    You should have done the research before registering and why are you more concerned about the Page Rank?

    So it is useless.... check TF and your backlink profile that should be your most important metric

    PR still has value that's why people sell high PR Tumblrs and shit for backlinks. That's how I rank all my sites by using High PR domains linking back to my money site. The ones saying it's useless don't know what they're missing out on.

    I've done many test with 0-1 PR sites and 2+ PR sites for backlinking. PR2+ always smashed the 0-1 PR sites when it came to the results.

    Just because they don't update it anymore doesn't mean any existing high PR domains have no value because they do. Friend of mine had someone buy a pr7 Tumblr off him for over $350 then the buyer dropped a link to his money site, along with a couple other high PR web 2.0s he ranked the bitch and started cashing in.

    Of course DA/PA/TF matters a lot more but PR still has value... especially for backlinking.

    LOL PR hasn't been updated for more then a year now, that is a lifetime in SEO, all your links from your tumblr blogs could be (for argument sakes) PR0 for all you know, PR is as SEO metric useless, the only people that use it are link/site-sellers that sell to clueless n00bs who don't know shit.

    I would never use PR as a metric when checking backlinks or expired domains as the data is outdated and therefor useless, the only metric i use is the TF and checking the backlink profiles that's it, no need for an outdated metric as PR.

    I've been messing with PR web 2.0s for the last few months and I do very well.

    New domain with 3 PR2 Tumblrs and one PR3 weebly linking back, Rank 5th for a low search volume medium comp keyword and making around $480 a month from commissions. Total cost was nothing... I scrapped the web 2.0s.

    This one here is on the way up from 7 PR2+ domains linking back.. achieved these results in 3 weeks... Bit more work and I'll be on the 1st page in no time banking
    http://gyazo.com/e9b81651b477b2f99f3e8bfcfdb35f10

    I have tons more keywords ranking from these methods. I've tested the same scenarios with PR0s with same DA/PA metrics with slower and less results.

    It's alright though, the only way to truly know what works is to test it but most people just follow everyone else and assume it doesn't work anymore. I don't purely use PR as my metric but I take it into consideration since I have proven results that have and are working for me. Google hasn't updated PR for a long time yes but link juice is still there.... Just because good old Google tells us they are shutting off the updates this doesn't mean existing domains don't hold link juice anymore. Just means people can't spam PR for SEO benefits .....

    Not to mention people still build gangsta PBNs with PR. Buddy of mine ranks heaps of shit like a boss with his sweet PBN

    Either way I have fun with it, my methods and test are working for me so meh.
