I am starting a new website so should I buy an old domain or a new one? I am asking this as an old domain will come with an established PR and few quality links which can help my website grow faster in search engine rankings. But is it worth it and what are some great places to buy old domains.
Well, while an old domain will come with PR, as soon as Google does its next update and sees that many of the links are no longer relevant (unless your site deals with exactly the same topic) your PR will drop.
An old domain could also have been blacklisted, the worst thing in the world. I would go with a new one, cheaper too.
You also want to get one with your keywords in it. I know I've said that a lot but it's really important.
Supposedly it should not matter what words are in your domain. BUT,,,, it does,,, a lot.
In fact I know I can rank #1 with many keywords just by how good the domain name is, if it's a narrow niche, which you should be going for.
Case in point. Type in "Orlando area Lowriders" in Google search.
See that first listing? It's a two month old site with hardly anything in it, started by a friend of mine about Orlando area lowrider cars and trucks.
I'm buying it next month.
