    Hi,
    Follow some finding expired domains guide on BHW, I manage to find out some expired domains with links from BBC.com/ Huffintonpost.com/ Buzzfeed.com ... They have very good metrics:
    TF 12+ - CF 15+ - PA 20+ - DA 15+

    But there are some problems when checking them with who.is and web.archive.org, so I want to ask a few questions:

    1 - Should you use expired domains that have been used recently by some Japanese owner (All the history found recently were in Japanese lang)
    2 - Should you use expired domains that have been drop more than 1? How many times of IP changes are ok to use?

    Thanks for taking your time to answer.

    lol when you start scraping and looking through domains by the hundreds and thousands, you'll have seen this over and over. Tons of sites with asian writing, spam, previous pbn's, etc.

    in archive, when you see a big gap and notice the domain has been dropped before, sometimes it was just being parked by someone hoping to sell it.

    you're going to find a lot more garbage than good domains.

    Just keep looking, i was asking similar questions not even a month ago, you'll get an idea of what to look for and how to spot a decent domain

    Thanks for sharing. I guess I have to remove more than half of the domains I found.

    1. Is a NO NO, always watch out for domains that turned into something completely different like for example it was turned into Japanese blog network.

    2. For me, I get rid of domains that have been dropped more than 4.

    A few rules of thumb:

    Avoid previous Chinese spam
    Avoid previous redirects
    Avoid archives where there's a long period of breaks, followed by recent 404 not found errors (blocking archive.org from a PBN usually).
    Check screenshots.com for more evidence
    Avoid anchor text spam

    What do you mean a long period of breaks. I found some of these domains:

    Domain # 1
    [​IMG]

    Domain #2
    [​IMG]

    Domain #3
    [​IMG]

    Are they all bad? What do you think about the domains with lots of drops like this one:
    [​IMG]

    I got 1 or 2 domains that when I check them with Web.archive.org, it shows nothing and auto-redirected to some authority page.

    Thank you so mcuh for replying. I really appreciate the feedback.

    A friend of mine keeps asking that you should buy domains from those seller who guarantee indexing.
    I mean how do you determine whether the domains are able to index after buying? (Besides clean profiles backlinks, no spam in anchor text and web history).

    You can go for sites with multiple drops. I don't think google minds multiple drops.

    All you have to care is that the domain has clean archive profile , no redirects , no foreign content or anchor text , clean and natural backlinks , avoid domains with blog comments , look for domains which have editorial links with low OBL (. Less than 10 )

    Give higher value to domains which have informative content not product selling content.

    Backlinks from news websites are very nice and if those articles are written by famous journalists/writers they are even better !!

    When building a network of more than 200 domains you will find that some won't index it's just the bad luck you should drop the domain and move onto other
