So here is the story: 1. I bought an expired domain with a small traffic in it (83 visitors daily). The metric is RD171, 1 y.o, it has a few authority backlinks and PBN links. 2. In mid March, I bought a fresh domain (newdomain.com) and rebuilt the content from the expired domain and then added some new related content as well. I also made sure the site was onpage optimized and load fast. 3. I created a simple static page “We are moving our site to newdomain.com bla bla bla” on the expired domain that I bought. The purpose is to direct the visitors to the new site, to get the link juices and minimalize the risk of getting penalty (if you go with 301 redirect route). 4. I haven't built any backlinks to the new domain yet. I let Google index the content naturally and signed a cheap VA to update the content two times a week as I left the site for a while. 5. Checked the new site two days ago as someone contacted me asking for a guest post. Then I found dozens of keywords on Top 10 Google like wtf? Here is the organic traffic estimation breakdown: SEMRush version 7. I checked the link profile of the new domain and found new 10 RD from shitty website lists with huge OBL (P.s: I did not build them obviously). And that’s it. No other worthy links except the expired domain I bought. Tbh I didn’t expect the new site will rank on Top 10 or even Top 3 Google in just a month with a single link from an expired domain! And also generated that number of visitors in a short period of time. I haven’t monetized the site yet or anything as I’m still a bit of overwhelmed. Have you experienced anything like this before? or done an experiment like this? Let me know your thoughts below.
