    Hi, I've checked that lot of people are bidding on this domain: standagainstpoverty . org. Is very powerful, but the problem is that when you check it in archive.org or you check it in Google it redirects to another page. So I think this domain is worth nothing. Am I correct? What do you think?

    Yeah, I know that it has powerful links that points to that domain and not to the new domain, but if they redirected that domain to the new one I think all the power passes to the new domain right?

    .org domains are really hard to monetize. People doesn't expect such domain names to offer paid content or whatever.

    I have taken a quick loot at Archive org and the redirect looks like a rebranding. If the links are good and there is no spam then it's ok to buy it.

    You don't know how much money can be made from donations. You think most of the money you (or others) donate really go to those in need?

    The domain is pure gold in the right hands.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    They are really not hard to make a buck from at all actually. I have several in the business and finance niches that are real good earners.

    I have the content set so that it comes across as a public service type of site and monetize them using adsense. People trust the site more as to the content and thus trust the advertisers.

    You just have to twist the content a little so it is not self serving and you can end up with a winner.

    Nope. Domain has a PR7 do-follow link from un.org, wikipedia.org, bbc.co.uk, and other authority sites.

    Yes, if they keep the old domain with a 301 to the new one. But if they sell the old domain, the 301 is gone and the link juice will stop flowing to the new domain, thus resurrecting the old domain's power.

    Yeah! I know that, my doubt was with the redirect... :p


    What you say is common sense, I think the same, but... I've read in many PBN tutorials, manuals and posts that you should check for redirects in archive.org and Google and if the domain has one, you shouldn't buy the domain in most cases. So...what's the correct answer?

    Is your thinking on not buying an ex redirect based upon some ex redirects might carry a penalty?

    Based on the info here I wouldn't say that's the case.

    I disagree with that, and I would still buy the domain for a fair price.

    People are talking about not buying a domain that has another domain redirected to it for the purpose of inflating its metrics. They're not talking about not buying a domain that has been redirected to another.

    Once you buy the domain you'd be stopping the redirect anyway and the juice would flow to you.

    If it was redirected before the juice got transferred but if there are still links pointing to it then it will be good once a new owner takes over.

    Either you have misunderstood what you have read or your sources have been BS. When you buy the domain you will get the power to do what ever you want with the domain and the backlinks are pointing to your domain nowhere else, the 301 is not effective after you take over the domain no doubt about that. Its not common sense its technical fact.

    You can use the website to solicit and collect donations! Most people have no idea what they're donating to, and depending on the language you use to solicit donations and what you do afterwards, it could be perfectly legal. Most people won't bother to verify 501c3 status before donating, and it is by no means required to receive donations. Though setting up a 501c3 could be a good idea down the road to minimize exposure to taxes should this get big.
