    Hi,
    i'm struggling to get my head around this, the situation is this.

    I've bought a dropped domain which shows a PR6 - I have put a site on it and it still shows a PR6.

    But I'm pretty sure the PR6 is as a result of it previously being 301'd to a genuine PR6 site that belongs to the company that used to own my domain.

    So my question is: does Google see this as a PR6 site until the next PR update by virtue of it leeching some value from the previous 301, or has it got zippo value and the link will be worth diddly squat?

    I've always thought that the site that is 301'd passes it's page rank to the receiving site, not that the 301'd site shows the same PR as the site it was pointing to.

    Guess I was wrong?

    Any advice or experience of this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    So tell me: What do you seriously think?

    The answer is pretty obvious that it doesnt.

    When you 301 a website to a PR6 website before a PR update, the domain you 301ed will "show as" PR6 until next pagerank update.

    It doesn't what?

    My own feeling is that the link will be worthless, but I am wishfully thinking it might do something for a short while.

    There seems to be a lot of people buying sites with obviously fake PR (I.e. the PR comes from the site having being redirected), so either there are a lot of idiots buying these things up, sticking sites on them, and linking to their money sites, who will see nothing for their efforts, or maybe they give some juice for a short time?

    Personally I can't see them giving any juice at all, so God only knows what people are doing it for?

    Forget the Gaygle's toolbar for a moment as it contains old and very outdated information. Your domain won't pass jack squat for PR, other than the PR 0 it really is.

    Remember that even a PR 0 domain may have a fractional value like PR .123, etc. Even though it will not pass PR 6 value, it will pass something.

    Thanks all.

    So why do you think that so many people seem to buy them up and stick sites on them?

    Are they thinking they'll get something out of it when they really won't?

    Doesn't seem to make sense to me.

    Unless they're going to try and flip them, fake PR & all.
