I saw an example of someone recently who was also doing this, and their domain had a PR of 4.
I have two questions about this strategy:
- To build up the PR would this person have done a lot of backlinking to the domain? I can't see how Google would give good PR based on the domain content, because there isn't any. So if I want to build up my PR do I find lots of backlinks?
- What's the benefit in building up the PR on a forwarded site? The site itself probably isn't going to show up in any Google searches (although it may rank for an exact match on the actual name). Am I better off building up my links to my You Tube channel and other Web 2.0 properties?
