    It's PR is faked it's not hard to do.

    Just to be sure, ....

    I checked it's compete traffic. So low it's not even listed aka. less than a few hundred hits per month (USA).

    and Alexa: http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/thenewatlantis.info

    Also checked SEM RUSH, according to them it gets ZERO search traffic.

    It's a garbage site. No PR , No Traffic, No nothing.

    Shit, I was going to say hopefully someone does not to buy the site on Flipper or something, but then I was thinking hopefully people selling backlinks do not use this site to get links from. "Get PR8 backlinks from my secret source" hehehe, black hat??? - Nah more like bullshit artist...

    Thats strange. Many ranking tools say its valid. It is 8 years old domain. But traffic is totally bad. redirect?

    I don't think is faked PR. Maybe it is real, but at the next update page rank Google, this site will have low pr.
    But , page rank 8, fake - or not fake is BIG BIG BIG. How can he to get this PR 8 ? I don't understand .

    It is a fake PR, no site can become a PR8 with 2 backlinks, you need hundreds of high quality backlinks from authority sites.

    I have found a site can have high pr based on the links it did have, some sites will loose a lot of links in a short time eg they go out of business. The pr stays in place for a little while and then disappears.

    Yeh, how do u "fake pr". Unless it was the case that all the old links that made it PR 8 was 302 redirected to a different domain.

    Google is notoriously slow (if not random) about updating PR.

    I would dbl check using MozRank...
