    ok, I gave an example of one I bought from the auction and as you can see by its whois t did drop. Not a biggy was just giving an example it didnt work on that nor did it work on another I bought that way. anyways it worked for you so well done 0-2 for me.



    *** actually it did work on one seabreezehost.com which was bought through godaddy but not for deliciousdrinks.net interesting as they were both bought the same way. So I am 1-1 never even noticed the one had kept its age. For the one that kept it though its saying it was through WILD WEST DOMAINS so maybe the other companies affiliated with GoDaddy do it?

    I have bought a lot of expired domains, and even some dropped ones, to boost the PageRank of my network.

    Sometimes I 301 these to my existing sites and sometimes I link them to my existing sites.

    It is maddeningly difficult to tell if these domains still possess "real" PageRank (as opposed to published toolbar pagerank) and are still able to pass that PageRank along to my other sites.

    Non-scientific evidence seems to strongly support the theory that at least some of these domains still have juice and are able to pass it along.

    I haven't yet devised and executed a test which can reliably prove this one way or the other.

    Technically speaking, the domains do not "drop" like those domains are "supposed to" drop through the 'normal' process. They never go "pending delete", they're automatically renewed for a year and put up for auction. Once you win one at auction, there's a certain period of time that you have to wait (a few days) until you take control over the domain.
    This is cool! I thought they just dropped.

    I totally agree. Some of the expired domains I've bought appear to pass PR and link juice...and some rank very well just by putting new, unique content on them and 301ing the more important pages on that domain that have links to other pages on the site, like the home page.

    From what I can tell, though, that it appears that if the domain goes "pending delete" then the PR, link juice, whatever you want to call it, is reset to zero. So, make sure you pick up the domain before it actually drops.

    I think I may have found a "corner case" where there is an exception to even this rule.

    It "seems" like Google had trouble figuring out that some of my ccTLD domains were dropped. WHOIS records are not uniform, and it looks like Google couldn't read all of the different formats.

    I have picked up domains with pr. I did not go searching for them; either they happened to be available, or they were about to delete and I waited it out rather than trying to buy it.

    Even if the pr has essentially dropped, due to the domain dropping, it still has backlinks.

    I have not used a 301 on one for another domain. I would prefer to use it as a site where I can place one-way links to my other sites; either just as a link portal, or add some content to a simple template.

    Hosting such a domain on free hosting (i.e. other than the hosting you are using for your own sites) adds an advantage in not only building one-way links from domains with pr to your own sites (being that you also own the domains), or even just inbound links from other domains, but puts these inbound links on different ip addresses as well.

    Typically it doesn't, unless the domain really drops for a long time.

    I would think that the PR would stick with the domain as long as there are still numerous other sites linking to that domain. Obviously, that doesn't happen when the PR is faked.

    Will, I happen to know that the big G also has a problem figuring out when .org domains drop.

    >> as long as there are still numerous other sites linking to that domain
    It doesn't matter, if the domain actually drops through the 'normal' process, then G resets all PR, link credit, etc. etc. It may come back at some point, especially if the domain gets new content on the same subject and some new links, but you cannot count on that happening. If a domain drops and the 'create date' changes then you can count on everything set back to zero.
