    Expiring Domain Auctions

    I've been interested in the Idea of acquiring expiring domains for a while and building sites on them as a link building technique (as of yet I haven't found one suitable though).

    As I understand It you check the backlinks of a site, if they're there the PR is good, if they aren't then its a duff.

    Currently there is an expiring domain being auctioned and its PR7 but it has no backlinks that I can find, it has had 38 bids and is currently around 5,000.

    The value isn't in the actual domain name I'm 99.9% sure, its something like "na37.com" though I changed a letter.

    So am I missing something? or is whoever buying it going to feel mighty silly..

    PageRank is no longer that important in todays Google algorithm. I'd give it a miss in my personal opinion. From the sounds of it, it sounds like its probably a fake PageRank 7. A lot of people can imitate PageRank without actually having any. Its a very nasty trick.
