    I have purchased an expired domain with pagerank. What is the best way to use it for SEO purposes when the topic for the expired domain and my money sye is diffrent ?
    I had a previous expired domain with pagerank that used to talk about a different topic, which I put some articles on and sent links to my money site, but the pagerank was removed pretty quickly by Google

    Always expired domains lose PR very quickly....You can use them for SEO purpose by placing links..But within 1 or 2 month, rank will down and also deindex from google....

    It's not worth to invest in an expired domain. They lose their PR quite soon unless you continue to build quality backlinks. You would then end up building backlinks to your money site + the expired domain.

    No, they don't. Unless you have no fucking clue what you're doing and buy the wrong domains.

    thanks for precision , i was a bit worried about the 2 first answers of this topic because i didn't saw this with my previous experiments .

    Domains don't loose PR, unless they loose their backlinks !
    And they don't got desindexed too ...
    They don't loose their backlinks weight because they were desindexed on day.


    If you have domains name with good quality backlinks in your niche , you can simply 301 to your main site .
    If the domains doesn't have focused backlinks then i mostly build a sub-page on it with article and contextual link , then i link this page from the home of this domain with the good anchor text.

    You are wrong.

    You are wrong.

    Can you get a freshly expired domain with tons of PR both deindexed and losing its PR? Yes it's possible, so don't do stupid stuff with it like sell links, or throw it into a blog network that Google can discover the footprints of.

    Very important:
    When you buy the domain, buy the Private Registration ASAP!
    This could be the cause of the lost of PR, G doesn't like when the domain changes the owner

    The best thing to do is put high quality related content on the domains that point to your money site, and not worry about the Page Rank, Larry.;)

    Yes, high quality related content on domains that point to money site is a good thing. That doesn't mean people shouldn't worry about pagerank or properly utilizing a purchased expired domain with high PR.

    A tip on how to keep the authenticity for the domain in Google's eyes, is to run it through Wayback Machine, and then try to match your new website as much as you can with the previous.

    And DON'T make a 301 redirect, I'm almost tempted to say, that it doesn't work anymore.

    If you doesn't get any results from the Wayback Machine, then go get some relevant content for your new domain.

    Domains with high backlinks count and high domain/page authority.

    You are partially right about buying private registration (who.is protection) but its not a reason for losing PR.. It just helps you by the way of protecting blog networks safe and secured.


    Thanks,

    I totally agree with you, expired domain retain there PR unless you don't know what you are doing. If your newly purchased expired domain lose it's ranking then you have probably bought a sits with fake PR.:(

    Expired domain names do not lose their pr, unless they have some crappy low pr links. imagine a PR6 with only a couple PR4 backlinks, do you think it will retain its PR? No.

    Expired domain names are good because most of them have genuine backlinks (owners did not do any linkbuilding), building up a large private blog network of such high PR domains is the greatest SEO tactic.

    Expired domain do not lose PR, its my personal experience. We purchased more than 150 expired domains with PR last year and till next PR update no backlinks were added but only few lost PR. We are still using those domains and most of them have PR, now we are regularly building links to maintain PR.

    Such domains are not deindexed, it happens only in rare cases.

    Please don't misguide people with general statements,,, somebody is investing money and your such statements can create problems for them.

    Thanks
