    I want to create my own small private network. I have been searching for high DA domains on godaddy auctions and the prices there do not seem to be very realistic.
    a lot of people will get into a bidding war and raise the price way beyond what I can pay.

    So here is something I have thought of:
    what if I buy 40-50 low DA, closeout domains at $8 each, and then hire someone to provide high PR blog comments? in other words, I buy it at a low price, and then artificially raise the DA? let's say 100 blog comments for each domain? would that work?

    You can get some great bargains through Godaddy closeouts... eg a DMOZ listed 7yr old domain with 100+ unique referrers, PA/DA both >30, no spammy anchors, and plenty of link variety for $8. At any given time there are dozens of those types of domains available... you just need to look for them :)

    really? according to my experience, all godaddy closeout domains are pure garbage, which is why I have stopped wasting my time checking their backlinks. now I just skip them.

    I guess that's what happens in life - we tell ourselves a story, and we stick to it :)

    There are some very useful tools available for finding dropped/closeout domains, I suggest you look at freshdrop.
