    Forget about page rank. It's utterly meaningless, because Google is no longer updating the public PR data.

    As far as I can see, the only use for PR now is for dodgy link sellers to scam unsuspecting (uneducated) link buyers. That's it. It simply is not a measure of quality, nor in my opinion has it been for quite some time.

    Hi, I would like to help. Google used to reset PR after a domain expires but that does not affect the link juice that will flow through it to your site. PR is a long outdated metric that adds ZERO value to your domain. "Real PR" is subject to speculation and is more than extinct. Since Google did not update PR in years and will no longer be paying it any mind, you need not worry about it. Some people might suggest using Moz metrics or Majestic Trust Flow, but both of those numbers can be manipulated and should not be used to represent the strength of a domain.

    If you are truly looking for the strength of an expired domain, then skip the bs and go through the inbound links, measuring the authority of the sites that point to your domain. If the backlink is populated with junk/spam links, spammed anchor texts, or very few strong links, then the domain sucks.

    On a side note I like to throw the site in question in the wayback machine and see if the domain was ever a link farm, old pbn, or porn site before I buy it. Just my two cents on buying some rocking domains.

    That's not quite true.

    It is true that Google hasn't updated public PR data for a long while and doesn't intend to, however, it is not true that they disregard PR - it's still at the core of their algorithm. They just don't tell us their opinion of the value of websites anymore.

    It won't matter if it'll drop or not, PR won't be publicly updated anymore. Better buy a good domain, judging by the links, not by metrics.

    the backlinks to the domain will still be there so as long the backlinks stays the domain will be valuable.

    Tony you took one sentence a bit out of context. The PR any of us will see will not be payed any mind. None of us have the ability to judge PR unless we are speculating.
