    Hi, guys! I had recently asked you about Serpstat, still didn’t make up my mind about it. Found an interesting thing on their blog though. What do you think of this method, is it valid?

    It basically boils down to exporting all domains from the top-100 and, using Whois, to check the expiration date.

    Step #1 - finding a list of domains in your niche

    Let’s take a narrow niche «Michael Kors crossbody bags» as an example.

    There are 95 unique domains for the phrase «michael kors crossbody bag» in US Google's top 100. 98 for the phrase «Michael kors crossbody bags», where 36 weren’t shown in the first set. And in «black michael kors crossbody bag» another 39 new domains were added. In total, there are 170 unique domains for three similar phrases in the top 100.


    Step #2 - expanding the list by checking more keywords

    Picking up phrases and getting domains from SERP manually will take too much time. So we’d rather use such tools as, for example, Serpstat.

    For Michael Kors Crossbody Bags there are 65 phrases found in Serpstat Google US base. For each phrase, you can take the top domains and copy.


    Step #3 - checking the expiration date

    And now about quick receiving the Whois data. You can use screaming frog, in their article they used netpeak checker. I looked it up, it’s a similar tool.


    An author says you need to keep an eye out for domains that were registered less than a year ago, there’s a chance that the owner will not pay for it further.

    Did any of you try this squatting technique?

    Seems like a pretty long stretch to me.

    I mean maybe, if you just want 1 domain you'll probably get lucky sooner or later if you're analyzing larger number of keywords but other than that, I don't really see this working.

    Someone please feel free to prove me wrong.
