How to Find Your Perfect Aged Domain
When in the course of building your website, you may have reached a point in which you no longer want to put in all the required effort to increase your PageRank and would rather pay out in order to make your web dreams come true. Depending on the niche, you may be able to find an inexpensive solution or could end up having to spend thousands of dollars to gain the precise results necessary to attract traffic. For many, locating and procuring an aged domain with good PR is a time saver and well worth the money invested. We will discuss these options so that you can decide whether or not this is a good idea for you.
Determining Your Needs
Have you considered whether or not you need a domain that refers to a relevant subject? In many cases, a generic domain with high PR (usually containing the name of a business or company) may be suitable for you, especially if you are creating various websites with little to no regard for the names of the site. For example, www.bricktoast.org may be useful for a blog that has no particular name established as of yet. When on a budget, this is a good approach; by letting the site name you as opposed to the other way around, you can save loads of money while still obtaining a URL that has all the PR and age requirements you need.
Knowing Where to Look
You will want to make sure that your search for aged domains begins in the right place. There are thousands of sites out there that sell domains with added PR, but some of these are not legitimate and it is best to use venues that are tried and true. The Digital Point Forums are one of the best places to look if you want to deal “face-to-face” with another individual. They have a feedback rating system which allows for protection against those who seek to defraud others. ExpiredDomains.net is another place you may want to check; hundreds of expired domains pop up here every day and with added measures that verify the PageRank, you know exactly what you are getting.
Some recent statistics say that over 80% of domains for sale on the internet with an advertised PageRank are displaying fraudulent information. Many cheats use a series of redirects that can trick prospective buyers into thinking the domain has a PR of 4, when it reality it is only 1 or 2. How can you prevent this from happening? Pingler offers a Fake Rank Checker Tool, which will instantly verify the true PageRank of the site in question. Acts such as redirecting headers from other sites will not deter Pingler from uncovering the actual status of the domain you wish to purchase. You can also use Google as a way of checking PageRank; by typing ‘info:website.com’, you will see the vitals of the site and can compare the name and headers of the site to the ones being displayed on the for sale page. If they are different, you know the domain PR is fraudulent.
