    I always see advertisements for people selling expired domain traffic. I was wondering how they obtain the domains.

    The reason I'm asking is I would like to setup a website to provide traffic from expired domains but am clueless what is involved.

    Most domains that expire now are snatched up by the drop-catchers:

    Pool.com
    Namejet.com
    Snapnames.com
    Godaddy also has this service but I've never had any luck with them.

    Nowadays, if a domain has any traffic at all or any history is snatched before it's available for $7.99.

    I would imagine the sites selling traffic have thousands, or tens of thousands of names generating traffic funning queries in multiple niches. I'm not sure how one would go about starting a service like this from scratch, unless you were reselling traffic.

    yeah this business' too far gone those drop-catchers grab domains in an amazing way they wipe evrything off the table and extremely fast !

    I was so naif one day when I tried to watch a list of 4-letter domains in pending delete I was refreshing the whois info in every min
    all of the sudden every thing vanished ...before my eyes :p

    anyway old domain that have some PR or indexed in dmoz are very valuable
    you could get a huge instant traffic if you build a site on them ..

    as for selling traffic from an old domain that's pretty ambiguous maybe they use some sort of redirection or .... I don't know

    I'm sure some one here has the briefcase about this

    It's all BS now, I mean you can get a great domain but the average now is $300 because it gets snatched up (usually by Pool these days) and then they have you in a bidding war where you have no idea what to bid so automatically you go as high as you can.

    Thousands of great domain are included with the 30,000 or so that expire each day, but a one man show has no chance of grabbing them before one of the drop companies.

    If you want to start an expired domain traffic biz, you'll need to resell someones elses traffic or you'll need to register about 10,000 domains.
