    If you buy expired domains to use it for an own blog network or if you are buying links from blog networks with PR this is something to mention:

    By mixing the contents topics, you will burn the trust, authority & the power of existing linkjuice, because the expired domains looses its topic, which it has been related to

    This is why the links from such networks work for a short time and loose their power soon. Most buyers of expired domains are uploading wordpress and are pushing content into it, which has no relation to the content which has been found there before. Even bader that the topics are now loans, get your ex back and dog training stuff totally mixed up.

    But how can we keep the power of expired domains?

    • Keep the topic relations which the domain was known for. Do some recherche with cache-data, if possible, keep the main title - tag.
    • Keep the server location, and don't change the country
    • Buy whois privacy for the domain, immedieatly with your purchase
    • "Redesign" the page and don't throw a standard theme on it.

    If you think a bit, it literally makes no sense in the eyes of google if the domain changes its topic from strictly related today and totally mixed up content the other day. Of course it does not deserve to keep any of its previous linkjuice.

    Think about it. Harder work, but much better results.

    Thanks susbter,

    I want to look at purchasing aged domains in the future, but was wondering how it all worked. If I could hit you up with a couple of questions.

    When you say keep the server location, I don't get what you mean, or how you do that. When you purchase a domain, doesn't it get transferred to your hosting provider, which then changes server, IP?

    Can you add more content to an expired domain? Articles etc, without losing PR

    I remember hearing Brian Valentine once say, there is no use buying a site with PR4 or higher unless you know what to do with it. But he didn't elaborate. Any idea what he was talking about?

    Thanks in advance

    You're welcome!

    If the domain you are going to purchase has been hosted in the netherlands before, so try to keep that location. It looks unnatural, if you buy an 12 year old domain, which has been on a US Server all the time and move it then to server in Kazachstan (if they have any)

    Of course you can. Just try to keep topic related to the theme which the domain had before.

    Nope. Perhaps selling links?

    Ahhh. I don't know why, but I was under the impression you would have to keep the website as is, and just add a link via blogroll or something.

    Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

    I failed to mention to look for REAL page rank and FAKE page rank. You can go to this site to check it: http://www.seomastering.com/fake-pagerank-checker.php

    A fake page rank is when a site does a 301 redirect to a high ranking site. Over time, the site will inherit the other sites high PR as Google will think the redirecting site and the redirected one are the same. The owner removes the 301 redirect and tries to sell the site quickly before Google indexes the page and recalculates the PR.

    You can download the old site from archive.org and upload it (not sure where you stand legally seen, but I would do it at least in the beginning).

    I guess the main steps of keeping the PR and the juice is through keeping the same backlinks and same content, backlinks you cant control as they may be deleted, unless you build more, and content just look what the website looked like before and copy (same tags and all)

    I own hundreds of high PR domains and I can tell you categorically

    "By mixing the contents topics, you will burn the trust, authority & the power of existing linkjuice, because the expired domains looses its topic, which it has been related to"

    is a MYTH!

    Yes, flame away but I have the empirical data.

    The MOST IMPORTANT thing to retaining the power of a aged high pr domain is the
    QUALITY OF IT's INBOUND LINKS.

    If your buying for example a PR5 and the domain has no valid PR5 inbound links there is very high probability that it will loose it's PR in the next couple of updates.

    Moreover think about it this way. If the above quote were true newspaper sites would be loosing their value all the time because of the amount of different content that is placed on them.

    Heck why would Facebook be a PR10 if this were true? The fact is it isn't.
