Seo Domain Name Purchase Question
Posted 13 August 2008 - 07:06 AM
We are a start up company, and about a year ago we looked into buying a domain name from a company for a considerable amount of money (for a start-up anyway!). At the time it had a little bit of relevant content on the site to what we were doing and we felt that it was a good domain name, good age etc.
We have now raised the funding that we need for the company but have discovered that the domain is now parked and pointing towards porn (we don't intend to be an adult site), the name servers are [removed] basically soft porn.
Here is some brief info on the domain:
PageRank: Not Ranked
Alexa Rank: Not Ranked
Incoming Google Links: 2
Incoming Yahoo Links: 7
Incoming MSN Links: 0
Incoming Alexa Links: 3
Overall Incoming Links: 12 (Overlap is possible - Estimated 10 unique links)
Outgoing Links: 2 (Ratio: 1.000% - Each Link Receives Approx. 0.000 PR)
Description: [removed] ALERT The site you reached has sexually explicit content. All models are over 18 yrs old. Permission to enter this web site and to view its contents is...
Online Since: May, 1997
DMOZ Listed: No
Archive.org Listed: Yes
What we are trying to ascertain is what difference this will make in the eyes of Google, how much it will affect our SEO (will the porn be detrimental to it?) etc and is there anything we can do about it.
We are entering into a very competitive online space and are conscious that we need to get our SEO right and being a start-up we don't have much money!
Thanks in advance,

Who knows what and how long this Porn association effect is going to be and your list of Yardsticks for this domain is most unimpressive. I would rather start from scratch if it were me.
