Dull space, where you been man.. been a while..
I wanna know that too. I am planning to park some domains...
@funlol I wouldn't spend loads (read: 100's) on buying it. You can get domains like this all over the place for $10 - $60.
Yes it will has some authority as it's aged, and has a large amount of backlinks so shouldn't get hit with any kind of penalty, and will be indexed relatively quickly.
(your mileage may vary etc etc.....)..
Thanks for the reply darkwing... the domain cost is around $1000.. but it's in a very profitable niche..
And the backlinks pointing to it look old.
A problem I'm seeing is that the domain changed hands in 2006...could this hurt?..
Did you analyze the anchor text of the domains pointing to the domain? I mean one would think if you have a load of great phrases pointing towards it, it would hold advantages for those keywords. Dunno what tool you use - may want to check out link diagnosis or analyze backlinksalso you can sometimes use the wayback machine to see how old the links are..
^^ "supposed to read analyze anchor texts of links pointing to said domain"..
