    Hey guys,

    There are many amazing tools out there for finding valuable expired domains. However, if you are looking for a free solution to this, follow the steps mentioned below. (This technique obviously requires some work)

    1. Open ezinearticles or any other similar website. I choose ezinearticles because I've already had success with it.

    2. Enter your keyword in the search bar

    3. Sort the results from oldest to newest.

    4. People usually like to add their website link at the bottom of their posts on ezineartices. Sorting the results from oldest to newest would increase the chances of finding good expired domains.

    5. Check the availability, history, Majestic and Moz metrics of each domain.

    6. I usually end up finding a good domain within an 30-45 mins.

    Oh btw, before you ask, why don't I simply use expireddomains? Well, all the good domains listed there are taken away pretty quickly and what's left there is pure junk. :) Hope you find this helpful

    Thanks for sharing!
    How do you check if the domain got penalized or any other issue that we should stay away from?

    It's absolutely necessary to check the backlinks and spam score. I only choose the ones with 0 spam score.

    Spam score means absolutely nothing really. Domain can have terrible history, used as PBN three times over and have 0 spam score. You should do all your checks manually and not rely on that joke metric. In addition, just backlinks are not enough, there's much much more to it.

    This is manual crawling of a site where it is easy to identify the sites.

    You could apply the same idea to other "seed" sites in your niche. Using a seed site that has authority (such as a popular magazine in your niche) guarantees that the expired domain has a link from it.

    Lots of people have already scoured well known sites such as Huffington Post. Don't waste time on these. Think outside the box.

    If you value your time (which you should), buying an expired domain that has been checked as clean is better than spending time learning how to scrape and check yourself.

    No point in scraping any authority sites anymore. :) 95% of them are overscraped to 7th hell and back.

    don't believe the "there's nothing left" doomsayers. dmoz had new expired names coming up every two weeks right up to the second it went offline -- there were 4 at the precise moment

    just begin scraping. less reading more scraping. there is nobody here who will tell me huffpost has zero names available if i begin scraping this very second

    don't believe the hype. begin fucking scraping

    Haha :D

    I scrape around 2 - 3 million domains a month. I believe I am quite qualified to make that statement :) . Go scrape Huffpost. I want to see one RD10+ clean domain with TF at least 5. And when you find it, tell me how long it took you. This is not really about "there are no domains left". More about "There are no domains left if you are scraping the only 5 "authority" sites that you know".

    There is at least good 10 steps before finding it and purchasing it.

    Well ezinearticles should be a bad place for finding such domains .. as it is not a site with authority. And most such domains have only backlinks from easy sources such as this and a few ohher articles directories/web 2.0 sites.
