    If you already have another site in that niche you could have this domain redirect to it....

    Seems a little expensive, on swaydomains.com, you usually get them a little cheaper.

    The things to check are.
    • Clean history on archive.org
    • Clean history on screenshots.com
    • Clean backlink profile on Majestic SEO
    • Trustflow over 15 on Majestic
    • Moz Domain Authority over 15

    I would say do your homework as Pyro listed above & if you don't end up building or redirecting the site you can always list it for sale / auction - Higher PR / Ranking sites usually go for a minimum of $100 and if your in the right place at right time while digging for expired domains, you can truly come out with some Goldmines Good luck!

    I've read a couple of blogs saying page rank is no longer a significant force in SEO nowadays. How true is that?

      Yes. Google has not updated PR since 2013 and says there will be no updates in the future.

      PR of a website is basically worthless from an SEO perspective but it still adds perceived value when selling.

      Despite all the news and discussion from Google, people still think a PR5 or PR6 site has more value because of the high PR.

      Use high PR as added value when selling, but don't expect any benefit if buying.

    PageRank has not been publicly updated in almost 2 years. I would never buy a domain based on PR. You need to investigate the links and see if they still exist. You also want to check what the domain was used for in the past. If it looks spammy, it may have been penalized and is useless today.

    I did my research and it looks pretty legit. Has about 1500 backlinks from decent sites. I also like how the domain almost looks like a premium one : paintingandart[dot]com.
    I let it pass coz I couldn't figure out what to do with it. I don't have any websites in the same niche and selling it seemed to risky.
