Flippa - Long Term Business

4 replies
I recently purchased two PageRank-2 domains from Godaddy and within a week the domains are PR0. It doesn't matter as they were cheap and I was just testing my luck. But why did they lose the PR? They certainly didn't lose any backlinks as I can still see about 800 websites linking to them. I'm pretty sure it's because I moved them to a different host/server.

Whatever the reason, Google knows they are with a different owner and I'm assuming they want the new owner to start fresh. This got me thinking, can you really buy a long term business from Flippa and keep the rankings and SERP? Have you lost rankings with a Flippa purchase? Do you try to keep them on the same server?

I'm thinking of Buying a $0000 website from Flippa but the site relies heavily on SEO and it's current trust of PR3.

Love to hear your thoughts..

    To my understanding, as long as the domain registrar remains the same, all the age, page rank and everything else should remain the same. And yes, you can buy a fully done business from Flippa, but expect to dish out some money for the good ones.

    If it is money you can afford to lose then why not take a punt? It could end up a winner.

    Did you buy domains or websites? If domains only, they pretty much always lose PR. It also could have been fake PR. A lot of that going around.

    As far as buying a site on Flippa for any kind of real money that relies on SEO for traffic, I wouldn't touch it. People are going to be dumping their Penguin bit sites big time on Flippa now.
