    Hi!

    Someone has offered me a site with these metrics:

    PR 5

    MajSeo:
    DA
    PR
    CF
    TF
    RDD
    RDP
    BLP
    BLD
    BLEG
    11
    5
    25
    20
    125
    68
    350
    706
    3
    -> it lost some points over 2 weeks: CF-2 TF-1 RDD-9 RDP-9

    MOZ:
    DA 33
    PA 44 (www.site.tld/ )
    Established links:
    45 Root domains
    121 Total links

    Sistrix: Class-C nets: 60+

    It has at least 7 wikipedia links. Also has links from PR7 sites like meetings.icann.org
    It was a sort of political site, now parked..
    So what do you say, a bargain? The seller has it listed for 400$ but I might get it for 200$.

    Hmm...

    Looks OK - though without actually examining the actual backlinks and anchor text ratio's I would hold my judgement in saying go for it. Remember, PR doesn't mean a whole lot nowadays. Sure, it CAN be a good indicator, as can TF/CF, but you always need to inspect further.

    It's not the metrics that matter the most, it's the naturalness and quality of the backlinks to it. It's a good thing it has links from authority sites so what you have to do is make sure it hasn't been used in the past for any spammy activity like building PBNs. Also make sure it's link profile is squeaky clean.

    The backlinks are all good, I didn't find any spam and lots of sites are 6-7 PR, like wikipedia.. Wayback machine also didn't show any spammy activity. I am wondering if I was better of just buying some more good domains from Cosmo Names... (but unfortunately I couldn't test their sites so far, still waiting for the order to come)

    The only issue might be: it was redirected to another political site in tha last 7 years. Thanks for the answers..

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

    The redirection is not an issue, imo, the backlinks are pretty nice and 200 is not a huge number. I'd be buying it based on all that you have said above.

    What do you mean by cross check? Checking from other backlink-checking-services?

    Siteworth of dnscook.net/hostip.php/ is showing $32,769
    Siteprice.org: $5,582

    Are they any realistic?

    I don't know your situation but in mine, I'd consider buying for the price. I'm sure one could find a use for it.

    Buy it, but be sure to check archive (history). Price is very good if the backlink profile and history are clean

    The back link sources are very good and so is the price. Maybe I would buy the domain.

    This is 100% true. It's all about backlink quality. I can get a PR3 domain like that for $40, so if you're going on PR alone and during the next update it drops you're getting screwed. However if it has really high quality backlinks that won't get removed in the future yeah it could be a good deal. Kind of low BLD for a PR5, but maybe it's being propped up by the high quality links.
