I'd appreciate any guidance chaps, as this is turning into an expensive joke, and I need to know if I'm just pissing money down the drain. So far, I've spent about £1000 on catching 20 dropped domains, Nominet transfers and hosting accounts over the last month or so. Every single one of these domains is still showing PR N/A. The earliest site has now been up over 3 weeks. Here's what I'm doing: 1. Catch dropped domain with public catcher (dropped domains always have PR N/A) 2. Nominet transfer to me, configure IP TAG and nameservers to hosting 3. Setup website, almost always Wordpress (within a week of the catch) 4. Add unique content (at best it's very, very loosely related to old site) 5. Sometimes: Ping site to various services to speed up indexing, if it doesn't index within a couple of day This is for backlinking to use with my clients, so I can't submit to Google for fear of leaving a footprint across the sites. 18 of the 20 sites have pages indexed in Google. I take my backlink research seriously (mainly spyglass, majesticseo and OSE), and all domains have solid backlink profiles that should result in PR3+. I come from a background of either building up domains or buying at auction with PR that stays, so this is a new area for me. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, or what to try next. I know that the link juice will be there on these already and PR isn't such a big deal these days, but most of my clients are so PR focused still, I need that PR to show in my reports to them. Has anyone else experienced this with a lot of domains? Is there anything else I can try?
