Question

I plan to build Private Blog Networks (PBN) and checking some expired domains to boost traffic. What should I check before buying the expired domain?

Answer
  1. History through web archive machine making sure it hasn’t been redirected too much. If it was a website before and not redirected, that is good. Even if it was redirected at some time that’s okay, it’s more important that the links still exist.
  2. Anchors text ration in backlinks should be 30 to 50 % branded domain term, or my niche or a close niche. For example, if I am selling -bed sheets*, it should be *beds*. I’m more concerned that the anchor text is natural–that it wasn’t a dropped domain or expired domain and someone else used it for a spam site. It is OK as long as it’s on the same general topic or theme. If it’s in the same category then that is fine. I use Majestic topics and topic flow to review the links. Websites do get links from different topics, so that’s OK.
  3. Number of referring domains. In general, the more there is the better it is. But I was able to find domains with 80 or 90 referring domains. I look for the number of referring domains rather than the number of backlinks. A site with 10,000 backlinks on 100 domains would be better than 100,000 links on 20 domains.But the domain/link count doesn’t really matter that much. If the domain is cheaper than buying the links or creating a site for the links, then I would still buy the domain. Even if it has 10 links.
  4. Per referring domain if the number of link is 8 or 10 or more, I was dropping it.In many cases a domain that has links that have been there for a long time are worth keeping. I like links that have been around for a long time.
  5. Check the Majestic Trust Flow vs. the Citation Flow. I never want to see CF higher 10 points than TF.
