6 replies
Hi

I have a google PageRank 4 web domain that i have let go into RDP (redemption) anyway the point is should i renew it at a cost of $250s (as far as i know it should keep the Page Rank value)

does anyone think its worth keeping for SEO purposes

ie. using it to link from/to??

i know PR is a hotely debated topic on its importance/value in SEO efforts

    Who's charging you $250 to take it out of redemption? It should only be $100-125.
    ICANN charges the registrar $80 or so dollars as a convenience fee for this service, but the registrar (like Godaddy) can increase that price to anything.

    Anyway...a PR4 domain can sell without content for $200-400 and you can sell links on it (no more than 4-6) for $40-100/mo. So I'd keep it for $100 easy, but $250 I'd be sure that I was going to monetize it and not let it sit around.

  • If you couldn't make money with it then... why now?

    PR isn't anything more than a measurement... just like the temperature.

    What matters is targeted traffic and a plan to do something with it.

    I'd too would like to know who is charging $250 to reclaim your domain. That's outrageous. One of the registrars I use charges $100, and someone a week or so ago here said theirs charged $75.00. I want to stay clear of your registrar for sure...talk about price gouging!

    Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

      hi thanks for all your replies,

      1. its ENOM (who have just been taken over by bulk reigster - well theyve taken over domain admin) that is charging $250s for redemption fee... i will email them, what should i say, theyve just given me an account manager apparently...

      2. I know i havent done anything with the domain so i let it lapse, ive just woken up and realised i probably should of kept it, it was even getting a few hundread visitors a month i think (type ins - im not sure)!!!!!
      i really do shoot myself in the foot sometimes...

      3. so wait if a PR4 website was built up with a proper website, you could get upto 4 links at $100s/month - so upto $400s in advertising revenue per month?

      4. i was thinking if i redemeed it, i could do as i said and useed it for SEO purposes to try to boost my new website(s).... what is the best of doing this, i have a couple of other PR3 websites, i use to just link them to my "money websites" putting content about the money website on these PRanked sites...

      5. last thing i promise (!), my understanding is that the PR value should stick even when it comes out of redepemption, it only loses it, once it expires?

      Just sell it, try to add some content and a little bit goes a long way. if you start getting some sort of traffic people will pay upwards of a 1000 for it. It is not worth trashing a PR4, might as well buy the 250, add to it, and try to turn it around and sell for 500-600, people will buy.
