Basically the title, are they worth investing or not?
In what sense? SEO? Traffic? Reselling the domain?
Sometimes you can pick up something decent there but it is not a walk in the park unless you automate the search/checking process.
SEO PBN sense.
What exactly to look for that will justify the price?
Forget getting anything good. Most of the domains in the closeouts will be those with almost no metrics at all. Good domains get snagged up at the expiry auction itself.
Once I picked up a 4letter .net domain for $5 during my initial days. Managed to resell it for $250 after a few months.
The usual - metrics of the domain, the domain history, who is linking in to the site.
Well, closeouts on GoDaddy are usually $5-10 so, if you can find a domain that can be used for SEO, I'd say that would be a great investment. But I can almost guarantee you that anything thats available and only $5-10 is already spammed to hell, so it wouldn't be worth it. Usually anything worthy of being a PBN domain is going to cost you $xxx+
1. commercial-free.com - Available for $5, has good backlinks clean history and anchor text.
2. caaid.us - Available for $8, same as above.
Both are indexed in google, what else should I look for in an auction domain?
Decent stats and seems quality but somebody told me they are not worth it. What are your thoughts?
Auctions are brutal and way out of my budget!
Also check how the site was used previously. Use Wayback machine for that
checked.. as said they have clean history and are indexed in google.
Yea but I would like your perspective on it. What do you think?
This is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever read on BHW. Do you not know how to scrape at all?
I picked up 2 really good ones using freshdrop.
The OPs question was specific to GoDaddy Closeout auctions and that is what I was referring to. Most of the stuff on there is picked over and he said specifically for a PBN.... Finding a PBN worthy domain within godaddy Closeout is difficult, like I said. My input was specific to GoDaddy Auctions.
Obviously you're getting cheap ass PBN domains, congrats!
