My question is as simple as the title of this post,
Does Page-Rank gets reset upon domain expiration?!
I was looking for some good domains and came across a list of high PR domains from 4-5 years ago. I decided to check their availability and found 2 PR5 and PR7 domains available to register. Upon checking the PR manually via different tools, the result came back 0/10.
I came up with 2 conclusions,
- Page Rank is reset when a domain expires.
- The PR was probably a result of PBN where other high PR domains were being redirected to these domains along with strong backlinks.
The latter seemed like a working solution, but i digged a little deeper and found a few more expired domains which had a PR a few years ago, at 0 PR.
I'm a bit confused so please help me out if you have the answer.
Any additional information would be appreciated!
