    Hello Experts,

    I'm new here. and have lots of questions in my mind.

    I'm really confused about buying a STRONG expired domain for better SEO results.

    Basically, my goal is to find an aged domain with good backlinks profile without losing it.

    I've already bought more than 4 domains from expireddomains.net with good age and backlinks but when I created a website on it and submitted it to google there are no backlinks showing there even after 3-4 months. and the domain age is also showing 4 months it seems like it's started counting again from the date when I bought this domain name.

    Additionally, I have this question in my mind:

    1) If we buy an expired domain that loses its age will also lose its backlinks in the google search console?

    2) How to buy a domain name which not loses its age and backlinks (in Google's eye)?

    3) The domain listed on expireddomains.net deleted domains section is worthless according to my above criteria?

    Please also give me any proper articles if you have any.

    Thanks in advance.

    They will all lose some backlinks as your not hosting same content. Be aware that there are plenty of stats showing but you should be checking to see how real they are. I have several scripts so you can double check on my sites.

    I can't speak for backlinks but with regards to domain age...

    When a name "drops" or expires it loses its age.

    Most registrars will automatically renew a name for a year then give the registrant the opportunity to pay them back (plus a bit extra known as a redemption fee). If the registrant doesn't chose to renew the name the registrar will put the name up for auction to try and recover the renewal fee and (possibly make a profit). If the name is bought at one of these expiring auctions it will keep its age as it still hasn't dropped. If the name doesn't sell at auction the registrar will get a refund on their renewal from the registry and let the name drop. Godaddy (and possibly other registrars) will put the name into closeout between the end of the auction and when they drop the name to give buyers one last chance to keep the domains age.

    These auctions can be found on expireddomains.net

    You will not get deleted domains with good back links in expired domains deleted domains section. Forget about that option

    You need domains that recently got expired and was a Live Website till it expired. Meaning not a domain that expired 1 year back and it dropped again by another user who bought it and did nothing or worse, use it as spam.

    Some of the godaddy expired auctions don't change the date, because they don't let the domain get deleted and transfer it to you. Those are best

    But even if domain is deleted and reregistered it is OK. Even though the above option is slightly better.

    So look in godaddy auctions.
    Manually check for backlinks. In ahrefs as well google with "website.com"
    Check archive,com for history if it was spammed by Chinese and Japanese casino/piulls/porn site.
    If site is clean, buy it./


    On expired domains, check the marketplace tab and look in Dropcatch, Snapnames, Godaddy and DYnadot

    Filter by DP or SEOKicks' domain pop (it is the closest to ahrefs RD)
    And then start manually verifiying before you bid.

    Good sites are hard to comeby for less than 1000, let me warn you.

    So, bid only you have a website up and running, or at least in a staging server, if you plan to use the domain as your website.


    The sooner you bring the site up, the better.

    I usually start scrapping archive.com as soon as I bid in a auction and I bid to win if I have my eyes on something.

    And builf the site up as soon as possible. Put up content. Let it index and booom 301 to my main website, within a month.

    Hello,

    First off, thank you so much for giving your time to write this up.

    I now understood about expired domain buying procedure.

    Your answer literally helped me to understand.

    However, I still have a little more confusion:

    1) as you said "Good sites are hard to come by for less than 1000" what does it mean?

    2) If the domain is expired so, of course, the content of it remove from the site and it's showing like this domain is on auction on GoDaddy so is that domain worth buying?

    3) It is worth buying the GoDaddy closeout domain (It will keep age and backlinks?)

    4) Once we will buy the domain name then after we will submit it in google webmaster so how much time does google takes to index the domain backlinks in the "links section" (or is there any quick hack to get it fast)

    Sorry, to take more time.

    Thank you.

    1) as you said "Good sites are hard to come by for less than 1000" what does it mean?

    Because you are not the only one trying to buy expired domains with good backlinks. It is a cut throat world.
    Until recently I was paying 2-3 times the auction amount because I didn't want to get into the hassle of research and waiting for hours for auction end. Meaning I used to pay 3000 for a domain that someone wins in an Auction for 1000. Even a few days ago I paid 2000 for a domain that was sold in auction for 800 usd recently because it was relevant to my Niche and I missed the auction. Hard luck. Good domains are expensive. Any domains with goood 1000 referring domains you will find many many competitors, BUT auction is the cheapest you will get. Domains with low referring domains are pretty useless.


    2) If the domain is expired so, of course, the content of it remove from the site and it's showing like this domain is on auction on GoDaddy so is that domain worth buying?

    Yes. Surprisingly so. It still works. I thought it will stop working 8 years ago. It is still working. It might stop working, but that is a risk you have to take. Usually you will hear arguments that people acquire companies all the time, but it is pretty easy to filter legitimate acquisitions and a grey hat 301. But it is working so far. But is is becoming common SEO practice so I am not sure if google will not get stricter soon. But then, 2000 usd is nothing in the greater scheme of things if you have a website generating xx,xxx a month. I 301 if it is very relevant. Like I have a site on Fishes and I get an expired domain on Salmon, then I will 301 redirect the domain and all its pages to a salmon page/silo on my main website. or I will recreate a website if there are less copy right issues etc, and then use it as a personal blog to link to my main site. What is problematic is buying a Museum website with links from wikipedoa and universities and create it into a generic Amazon Affiliate site. There are many such sites and they are still working, but they are risky and stupid and will make google take note. But who am I to judge.

    3) It is worth buying the GoDaddy closeout domain (It will keep age and backlinks?)
    Again, NO. you will not find SEO useful sites on closeout. My thumbrule is, the site should have 500 DP metric and at least 5 bidders before I even start my analysis. No good site will remain unnoticed. Closeout is for buying end user names and brandable domain. For SEO, you will have to compete with a lot of bidders,.

    4) Once we will buy the domain name then after we will submit it in google webmaster so how much time does google takes to index the domain backlinks in the "links section" (or is there any quick hack to get it fast)

    No need to submit to google webmaster. The best thing is to wait. Why tell google what you are upto.
    rebuild the site, maybe add a new article or two, and send a few social signals and wait.
    If the site doesn't get indexed, it is your luck. But if you do everything right, it will work out.

    if you have to force google to index it, it was not a strong domain to begin with. It is also a slightly shady technique, so no need to involve google hahaha
