    Hey guys, so I recently got Expired domain finder for Scrapebox, and so far it seems pretty good, I've pulled quite a few expired domains.

    Now that I've got a big list of expired domains, what's the best way to find the best ones to use for my PBN? I hope I don't need to actually manually review each one. Any tips of tricks/programs or websites that can help me filter the best ones?

    Thx

    As said above you can only do it manually unless you can afford to use a automated service .

    You can look in the misc of this forum there is a automated service but it a mothly subscription around $$$ month to use .....

    Manually done your also learn more about keyword research ...

    Your need

    Moz (( understand all stats
    Hreff (( understand bad and good links
    Google account (( exspirence with desolve (( how to get rid of bad links if the domain worth having))
    Wayback database (( understand there history structure))

    It not easy at all , take exspirance to learn about bad backlinks on exspired domains .....

    stick with the metrics and then check the backlinks there .... check in the archive if the domain is clean as well and was not used for seo spam stuff. it is manual work but you can filter out the most with the metrics .....

    So your way is to master what each metric means ,and then only accept a domain that the metrics meet that are acceptable in stats.

    How do you cheek the archive to see a exspired domain is clean?

    yes metrics is the main key and then you can check the backlinks manually and see if the domain has good valuable backlinks
    in archive.org or on domaintools.com you can check the history

    To be honest, I wouldn't expect to find "good" expired domains if scraping on a small scale. Sure, you can probably find some decent domains that can help rank for very low competition terms, but anything above that would be very difficult.

    Who knows, you may luck up and find a good domain. It is very unlikely though. Even if you do find one with good metrics, you still have to check the history.

    This is why a good domain seller who already screens the domains is worth their weight in gold. They are scraping at a large scale and have a system in place for finding good domains.

    There are two ways and not much in between: Either develop your own system of finding and filtering domains, manually review those who survived the filtering. Or go buy expireds from people like Nargil who know their business. Noone will give you a recipe how to find great expireds at registration price. What's definitely needed is the tools redarrow already mentioned. Also keep in mid that the number of domains you need to scrape to find the few good ones that are nor spammed and don't have some fishy PBN history is enormous. PBNs are pretty much the only thing that still works for legal blackhat and there are quite a few professional players in the expired domains game. Just have a look at auction prices now compared to a few years ago, they didn't just rise, they multiplied.

    thats why, if I have the time, only scrape from high dA sites.
    save me the "does it hvae quality link" questions.

    btw. check dns and hosting history ;).
    omg . 1 sentence wisdom again

    oh, and everything above RD100 - RD150 and ++YOU++ find it, good luck. it will de spammed or deinxed as fuck ;)

    cause whole asia buys them (even .de ones), kills them with spam backlinks insteadofusing them longterm.

    Exactly this.

    The amount of money to set up even small scale operation is not really worth it, compared to outsourcing it. If you need 10 domains or so, you will pay 2x more by just setting your scrapers, proxies, VPSes and subscriptions to filter the domains. Not to mention time to hand check them. Plus, if you do not have a prior experience to checking domains and do not know what you are doing, be sure that 5 out of 10 domains that you will register, will not get indexed in this lifetime due to manual penalty. Time of scraping when you could find golden nuggets every day are very long gone.

    Buy Domain Hunter Gatherer, a far better program that tells you PA / DA and backlinks. It's not a perfect science and of course you'll want to check wayback machine to ensure it's not a Chinese website but ye, a good buy.

    So are you saying I wasted my time/money buying this scrapebox plugin? I just really wanted to have a few decent domains for a PBN I'm planning on putting together, they don't need to be insane domains with thousands of dollars of value I just wanted to put up like 10 or so sites to boost my rank.. Should I just say fuck it and buy some domains or what? Kind of unsure what to do now

    I am a domain seller, so whatever I tell you to do may be perceived by some as not exactly impartial.

    You will be happy to find clean domains with $15 value, not thousand.

    Look at it like this:

    All the domains that expire and aren't too amazing, are picked apart through services like expireddomains.net.
    All the domains that are worth something go to auctions.
    All the domains that are not bought on auctions are caught by big guys the millisecond they drop.
    All the domains that were available for registration online before the entire PBN boom are being scraped by hundreds of people every day.

    What are you hoping to find?

    I'm just hoping to find a couple domains to start a PBN. Obviously the better the domain the better for me, but what would you say are the minimum requirements when it comes to things like metrics to start a PBN? usually I was buying off pbnhq but I figured at like $20-30 each I could save some money and scrape them myself but all I've learned from this topic is that it seems I've wasted my money?

    Hey Nargil!

    I'm planning to buy some quality domains in the next 3 months, how much do you think a DA60+ would cost?

    Anyway, I'll sure get in touch with you in the future.

    DA 60 :)))) Over $10K, maybe $20K, most likely more. Never even seen any DA60+ on auctions.

    I sent you a PM.
