    Yo hatties,

    I'm going to create a new moneysite next week and want to buy an aged domain because it will rank faster. what are the points that are important for buying a aged domain to set it up as moneysite?

    Also thought scanning through expired domains section but was wondering if that's of any use when a domain has been dropped like 10-600 days.

    My current thoughts are these:
    1. that it shouldn't be dropped more than 10 days ago.
    2. backlink profile should look good because it could otherwise be penalized before.
    3. KW's in name of the domain would be a plus but not necessary
    4. Good metrics are a plus but not necessity
    5. Domain indexed only important if its an expiring.
    6. .....

    Thx brothers :)

    First of all you need to clarify your niche
    second, you need to be clear if your one site will represent just the niche?
    3rd: for a more site you need to choose a domain that is already ranking in your niche, otherwise you will need to refurbish it, which takes a long time...
    hope that helps
    Cheers

    1. Niche is tech
    2. Just in tech niche.
    3. What do you mean with already ranking in the niche?

    I would search for a branded URL. EMD and partial EMD are cool for the serp boost, but it raises the chances an seo had the domain before you. It would be nice if the backlinks were tech themed so it is already recognized as relevant when you start to build it out. Make sure archive.org history is good. You do not want the "perfect domain" that used to be a porn site. It is nice to see some authoritative links pointing to the domain from the niche. Other than that you are spot on. Make sure the backlink profile is not spammed.

    I dont worry about when the domain was dropped. I never had that affect anything I ever did. I also ignore metrics for the most part. Too easy to manipulate. Good luck in your search. :)
