Buying Aged, History Domains and Re-purposing Them?
edited March 2013 in Other / Mixed
Anyone here have experience with buying aged domains (from godaddy auction or other sources) that already has backlinks and re-purposing them for a completely different niche? I only have experience with buying ones and keeping them in the same niche, and know that this strategy works great so you don't have to start with a brand new domain. The issue I see that you might run into is that the backlinks to the site might all be about "dog training" and then you buy it and they all are about "forex" (for example) might look very unrealistic to search engines. Anyone tried this?
Yes, I know exactly what you are talking about, and they might be better used in the context of a high PR network.
Being very honest here, this type of question really should be in an seo forum, not a software forum.

Is this likely though? I mean if you are optimizing a keyword match domain I can't see it being so different...
I Created new content for all domains, but didn't build any additional links just to try and keep the results clean.
All lost at least some PR in the last update. Some went to PR0 but some only dropped to PR2/3.
Basically, the ones where the change of niche was less did better.
