    Building just now a PBN... I want to buy some expired domains but do not want just to search by domain name. This is not enough. I want them to be contextual.

    I want to provide keywords or text and get domains where the URLs of the expired domains somehow match (well, I know, they are expired). Or the URLs should have contextual inlinks.

    Is there such a service? Please don't PM me, I am really looking for an established service.

    Thanks,
    cooooookies

    RegisterCompass.org and ExpiredDomains.net allow users search by keyword to find matching domain names. That said, if you are planning to build a PBN with the domain names, you probably don't need relevant ones.

    Hmmmmm... Do I want too much? How do you guys use PBNs?

    Do you benefit from already linked URLs of (your expired) domains?
    Do you do somehow contextuality?

    Or do you just buy domains with high pr and hope it will do somehow by buildinig new URLs?

    I personally feel like Majestic Topical Trust Flow is the way to go.

    Looking ahead, the only way for Google to fight against "well built" PBNs is to increase the weight-age to links from contextual sites. Majestic is the only back link provider that is trying to segment domains into categories in this way. I do hope they better their algorithms and make their data much more accurate.

    From my personal experience, looking for contextual expireds is a waste of time and money because strength always beats relevance.

    Yeah, I feel there are many people thinking that, maybe this is really the case for now. Starki, could you underlay your experience with some numbers? I am really curious about that.

    However, I also tend to thinking that contextuality matters, at least sooner or later, or alreay now: I thought it is matter of fact that relevant backlinks count more than off-topic backlinks, so I am a little bit confused.

    What works today may not work tomorrow. If its one thing we need to learn to do in the post panda/penguin era is to try and think like a search engine. As a search engine how would you devalue well built PBNs while still not penalizing real websites.


    I am not saying generic PBNs do not work now. They do and they work really well. The question is will they continue to work 6 months from now when a new algorithm is released.

    Yeah, I agree, future PBNs might be even harder to create. But shouldn't this be already the case? Or in other words: if generic PBNs do well, how do PBNs backed up with contextual links?

    Does anybody have experience with sniper-targetted PBNs? I.e. expired domains with relevant backlinks?

    Contextual domains are hard to find, vendors charge extra to get you one rather than a generic one that is comparatively lower priced.

    Think forward though, contextual links are sure to get more important as algorithms improve so relevancy is very important.
