I'm going to be working on an alarm system site that has been redesigned several times over the past 10 years it has been around. It has a page rank of 3/10, but does not have any SEO to speak of at all. It does not rank for any keywords that I can find.
The company is being taken over by someone who has a good understanding of the importance of a web presence, and wants to do things the correct way form here on out.
The domain name does not have any keywords in it. There are no relevant backlinks that I can find, But it still comes up as a pagerank 3/10, and I'm guess that it is because of the age of the domain (over 10 years).
My question is, which is the better plan...
Create a new site, on a new domain using a keyword in the domain (and direct the old domain name to the new domain)

OR keep the same domain(bc it is ranked 3/10)

I'd use the existing site for sure. Unless it's been penalized or anything like that.

If the old domain is getting traffic you absolutely want to use that. I wouldn't pay any attention to backlink reports or Toolbar PageRank.
