    Hi. I've been reading about setting up a private network and purchasing an exisiting with PR 1+. So I have four questions:


    1) If you buy an existing domain with PR 1+ and some DA, if some of the backlinks to this domain are backlinks to the inner pages, would all those backlinks to the inner pages be useless if you are forced to setup the blog again?

    2) Related to question 1), if you have to setup the blog again, then many of the backlinks to the inner pages of the original blog will end up being a 404 (because that inner page doesn't exist if you have to setup the blog again). Wouldn't the DA of your domain take hit?

    3) Because of question 1) and 2), if I purchase a PR 1+ domain, should I target a domain with more backlinks to the homepage and less backlinks to inner pages?

    4) Everytime I read a thread or FAQ about purchasing an existing domain with PR 1+, the author talks about setting up the blog again. Is this the common practice? Or do people manage to keep the existing blog code of the domain they buy so they don't have to setup the blog again? (if you managed to keep the existing code of the blog, question 1) and 2) would not be an issue).

    The solution is 301 redirect. Internal pages of old domain urls would redirect to either homepage or get redirected to a new url you setup if you cannot create the old url format. If you can replicate the old site then great, however you do not have too.

    This should pretty much answer all your questions. If you need further information you can check out a thread I did on setting up a private network.
