    Hi...

    So just like everyone else, I want a PBN.

    I've been scraping domains and checking them, usual boring shit.

    However, lately I can't seem to fine a single domain over TF10.

    Has anyone experienced this? All my live sites still have TF ratings 20+ just like they always have, but I wonder if Majestic now stop recording TF for sites which have expired.

    Literally, I've just blasted through 3000 domains that I scraped with a custom program and the highest TF I found was TF7.

    I look on DomCop, out of all their expired domains I see the highest they have is TF4

    What is going on boys? Have we been collectively mass dicked by Majestic?

    Their last update lowered TF a lot for PBN type sites.

    Scaping is much harder these days, everyone can be a scraping guru for $50/month.

    I'd just buy from sellers. You get auction domains and save time.

    I haven't noticed that. You must be looking at wrong places. I have just got a neat list of domains with TF10-19 couple of hours ago. About 20 or so domains.
    Everything seems pretty normal. Just keep looking.

    What am I doing wrong then... this method worked fine 3 weeks ago...

    I've literally scraped 5000 domains if not more.

    DomCop who have millions of domains have the same issue.

    it can't just be me right?

    Algo? Let's play with you.
    I think they changed their TF calculation algo in the last update.

    I'm fully aware of this, I'm wondering how everyone else is coping since they made the change...

    Out of 49,802 domains found, 2954 are TF 10+, 2901 are TF & CF 10+ and 840 with TF & CF & DA & PA 10 +.

    Maybe you're searching in the wrong niche or something?

    They did another update a day or two ago that seemed to decrease TF for the majority of my PBN sites. Not a big deal since RD is all I really care about :D

    Unfortunately if he tries to sell the domain, most buyers don't care and will lower its value... That's how this business works, after Google removed their Pr indicator, Ahrefs, Majestic and Moz have a lot of say in a domain's value.

    Yep, there was another update like 2 - 3 days ago - https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/majestic-trust-flow-update.882449/page-5

    Result was, that my stock got cut by 40% cca, so I cannot describe how happy I am. :)

    So I am coping with a glass in my hand and cigarette in my mouth and all of a sudden, everything is brighter.

    To be more precise... 4 scrapers running 24/7, over a million expired unique domains analyzed a month and I am happy to get 10 clean domains with TF10+ RD30+ a week. So that's about it. :)

    And shoot me a PM if you want Ste. Will send you a list of domains to pick from.

    Get ready to see "Forget TF/CF, Buy these PBN links with atleast 100 Refering domains" threads in marketplace.

    Yeh and 95% nofollow links and hack/crack anchors. At least that has been the latest trend in Marketplace.

    I'm aware of that but if that domain is worthy it should be measured by it's backlinks. Similar domains are also affected since the whole index changed. Prices will adapt I think.
