    So I've been scrapping for expired domains for over 4 weeks now and only found 2 that are worth registering; TF>15, CF>12, RD>10..

    My keywords and very broad and I'm running Domain Hunter Gatherer on a VPS 24/7.

    Sooo my questions are;

    1) I found a dozen great domains (spam free, anchor text clean) however, they only have 1 or 2 referring domains. What would happen if I added these to my PBN? Would they simply not add any juice to my money site? Why are reff domains so important?

    2) How do people find good domains? I'm assuming auctions and they pay $100+/domain?

    1-2 RD is useless.

    Buy domains from sellers.

    Woa, only 2 in 4 weeks? Are you looking for niche relevant domains? maybe your niche is one where it's hard to find good domains.

    Did you find any clean domains with high RD but less TF/CF? I'd say focus on those. Metrics are crap dude, just look for a clean profile and high RD, preferably some contextual links.

    Yes all good domains are sold on auction. I'm on a private auction right now for a domain I backordered. Highest bid is now at $1300 which is to high for a PBN domain but anyway it's a PA 59 DA 51 TF 23 with 800 refering domains.

    Go for at least 10RD, because if one domain drops and you only have 2RD you better bet the other one stays (and even if it does no value). Overall low RD domains are crap and just a waste.

    Like Asap said, if you got no luck finding domains just buy it.

    Often with expired domains Majestic doesn't crawl the links often enough, and you find when you register it that some of them have been removed so what you thought was a domain with good TF ends up being crap. That's why the more RD's the better. Plus, of course Google doesn't give a shit about what Majestic thinks, so the more RD's the more likely it is that the domain will have high PR or whatever metric Google uses internally - TF is only a guide to that.

    Imagine how many people are scraping these days. I have 4 - 5 scrapers running permanently at any given time. I go through over a million domains a month and there are XY other people who scrape even more than me. The number of clean expired domains is limited, so think twice before you decide to do this yourself. Not to mention the background check on the domains can screw you over as well.

    In regards to low RD, go for 10 at least. If the TF and other metrics are brutal, go for as low as 7, but ideally, you want as high RD as possible. With scraped domains however, it will rarely be more than 20 - 25, if the domain is clean.
