    I've been buying aged, expired domains of late and have a list of available domain names spare, so I thought I'd share them here. These don't belong to me, I'm not selling anything, they are available to buy from any registrar.

    These all have backlinks, moztrust and mozrank and some authority; and although they all vary some are up to 8 years old. I mainly target domains that have at least one PR5 d0-f0ll0w live link, but there are also some with PR4's, due to drops in the linking sites ranking after the last update.

    If anybody's interested in any of them I'd recommend buying it, hosting it and chucking on any old content. Chuck some links at it to get it crawled and indexed and await a PR update. The domains with PR5 backlinks should update to a PR3, although some of mine have come back to PR4's. The PR4's may come back to a PR2, I'm unsure as I never bother with them. But of all the PR5 one's that I have kept they always return to at least PR3. I also chuck some links at the sites which link to the domain, but whether this is necessary I don't know. I can't see it affecting anything negatively.

    I also recommend you look into the sites linking structure as it's possible that these links are pointing at pages on the root domain and not the domain itself. Therefore you would need to 301 redirect any internal pages to the root domain. I'd recommend using Open Site Explorer but use whatever tool you like.

    I now have a fairly healthy private blog network for just the cost of a standard registry. Yes, it's a long-winded approach, with having to wait for PR updates, but it's worth it.

    I'm constantly on the lookout for more so may update this thread as things progress.

    How do you check the inbound links?

    Interesting! I have been doing something similar but saved my lists so far, as many of the Pr5-6 links I find have high OBL so I need to learn more about how much that matters before buying.

    Do you look for any maximum range or is a Pr5+ link solid enough that you do not worry about it? (Typically I look for under 85 OBL when building links for sites, but as far as constructing a private blog network I'm not too sure).

    Sorry guys, I hadn't realised anyone had replied to this thread.

    Garrido - Use www.opensiteexplorer.org - This will list the incoming links in page authority order. So usually the highest PR links to the domain will show at the top. Click on them, find its page rank (I just use a few different chrome extensions) and search for your backlink via the keyword open site explorer lists it as. You may need to sign up with them to see further details. They do offer a months free signup but you'd have to cancel the subscription before that month is up or they will charge your card, and it's not cheap. User shailzrocks on here does month by month memberships for the service for $10 p/month.

    twistedtrick - I haven't had any problems so far with OBL, but I do shy away from anything that looks like a linkfarm. Anything that has a link coming in from a high pr page which contains hundreds of out bound links I'll tend not to bother with. I initially scrape for these with scrapebox by using a '-2012 -2011 -2010 -2009 -2008' custom field. So it will only find pages which were last update before 2008 and then sort by PR.

    Take this page for example: http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~jure/blogs/all_blogs.html - This was a PR5 up until the last update, but has 10's of 1000's of outbound links. Even though it's an .edu and is legit (links back to blogs used in a computer science study) I'd still be wary of using any expired domains it links to with that many OBL's.

    I really appreciate the feedback, thank you. I think I am going to buy a few domains with at least one inbound PR5-6 with a max 200obl on the linking site and see what happens, then adjust the OBL scale from there once I see how powerful/weak the new sites are.
