First, I'll mention that I searched this forum for answers before I made this post. That said:
I run an Ozzy Osbourne web site (URL is in my sig). I plan to swap links to boot its PR but my question is: Could someone explain exactly how I would measure my domain's PR? Or rather, how PR is measured, at all? I've seen many ppl claim to have "PR4, PR5" etc. domains but how do they know of their actual PR rank? This sounds rather noobish (I've been playing with domains for years, though) but I have yet to figure this out. Maybe a short "tutoral" could be made for the subject, like kohashi's domain how-to thread. Anyway, could anyone offer this mindless retard any insight? Thanks in advane.
Interestingly, when I visit your site (and I have the google toolbar installed), it shows PR3. So I guess sometimes those tools are a bit off.
When selling a domain, the PR is not a good indicator of the domain value IMO. There is a lot of hype about it that is overplayed. For instance, I have a network of sites with half decent PR of 6. When I add a new domain to my network, all I have to do is link to the new site from several of my PR6 sites, and bingo. Within a few weeks the new site is PR5. Yet it could be a completely undeveloped unvisited site.
So really, what is the value of a PR when selling a domain?

I personally think PR factors in but not that much (as your example shows). I think a domain's link popularity is the main key but even that doesn't mean the world. There are other things one must consider (the extention, for example). I have a few domains to sell plus I wanted to check my Ozzy site's domain PR, to see if I'm getting anywhere with it. As always, though, thank you. I don't think I could have figured it out on my own

I recall reading a sales thread where someone had such a script. When doing a search, I could not find it. Perhaps the thread was dumped. The only thing I could find was http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...hreadid=263729 but I don't think that's exactly what you're looking for.
In the event you find a script, just be careful. Someone can crack the google code, but if/when google then reconfigures its algorithms, you're back to square one and your script no longer works until you crack the code again.
