    As it's Friday, I decided to give back a little and take the time to write up a method I came up with for easy rank-pushing. Not seen anything like this on here so far, so I hope it's useful to some people.

    I want a massive amount of links, good links, to my site to increase ranking, right? But that will take time/be expensive etc, boring boring boring. Of course, I could use software to send masses of spammy backlinks, but then my site might get banned later on down the line.

    Then I learned about EXPIRED DOMAINS. These are not the same as expirING domains, the ones you find on GoDaddy Auctions, expired domains have already been dropped and will not maintain their history.

    Another thing you should know about expired domains, is that they also lose their Page Rank. So how can we get ranking power from an expired domain with no age and no pr?? Simple: we get backlinks. Lots and lots of backlinks. This method finds dropped domains that have tonnes of top backlinks from respected sites like the New York Times, Wikipedia etc. Links that would be impossible/expensive/take forever for us to get for our money sites.

    So let's crack on...

    STEP 1: Visit the website http://expireddomains.net

    You will see a list of expired domains.....we're going to pick a list of domains that are the CHEAPEST TO REGISTER. We can get .com for $0.99, and I personally like .co.uk sites. For a list of domain registration deals, visit a coupon code site like http://domainpricemonitor.com/domain-coupon.aspx


    STEP 2: Finding a domain


    expired-domain-list.png

    Now we're looking at a list of expired domains. There are lots of sortable variables, but most of them are inaccurate (especially the ?BL? - backlink - field, so don't waste your time). I'm going to sort the list by ?PR?. Even though the dropped domains can and probably will lose their PR, this is the best indicator of an established site with lots of backlinks.


    STEP 3: Backlink-checking

    Let's take the first few domains and see what we find.

    ArseGaming.co.uk only has 52 backlinks, mainly from WHOIS sites, so it's useless to us.

    Next, ExpenseClaims.co.uk....now we're onto something. 33K+ links with amazing do-follows from top newspapers:


    backlinks.png

    It usually takes a few more tries to find such a good site, but there's always one there if you spend the time looking.


    STEP 4: Check is the domain is still indexed. We type this query into Google.com:

    info:expenseclaims.co.uk and, yes, it's still there.


    STEP 5: One final check before purchasing, we load up archive.org to see what site history has been stored. There isn't any for expenseclaims.co.uk, but we don't really mind at this stage because the backlink profile is so great. For less strong sites, try to find some content from the last few years, especially content that can be copy/pasted onto your new site if required.


    STEP 6: Register the domain, quickly! (expenseclaims.co.uk has been taken btw, so don't even bother ;))


    STEP 7: Maximise the link juice

    Now you have 2 options: you can throw a site on the domain, preferably scraping the old content from archive.org, and use it to rank for related keywords or to link to other sites, OR, and this is the easiest option, you can do a straight 301 redirect to an existing domain and push all the link power to a site of your choosing. Do a couple of these and you'll have a MASSIVE amount of link power for just a few dollars.

    The beauty of this technique is that, while the method is super-blackhat, the link profile you get will be nice and clean. Plus, it's incredibly cheap. There are, of course, twists on this method to make it extra-sweet, but I'll leave that up to your imaginations...

    Have a nice weekend, everyone. :cool:

    Yep, it's working great for me, along with other techniques and good on-page optimisation of course. No single trick will do everything for you. The key is to find sites with a clean backlinking history, not tonnes of spammy links (check anchor text and domain authority before purchasing).

    Awesome tutorial, thanks.

    Would a DMOZ listed domain be powerful to 301 to a money site?

    Also, how do we know if a site is blacklisted/sandboxed by google?

    One last q, if the site is 301'd and its blacklisted, would deleting the site and the 301 to my moneysite get rid of any penalization the money site may incur?

    Cheers

    No problem. Personally, I don't think DMOZ listing adds much value, since it is free for you to add a site yourself: http://www.dmoz.org/add.html

    I did the search for info:sitename.com in google to check if it was indexed...if it is, then there's no ban. You need to study the backlinks carefully to check for anything spammy (lots of low quality links, exact match anchors etc), if it has these links, it may have been sandboxed so avoid it (also, you can build crappy links yourself, there's no need to buy a site with them!)

    You can also check if the domain has been used for spamming in the past: http://www.spamhaus.org

    If you have a site that has been blacklisted, deleting the content won't really help, unless that is the reason for the blacklisting action (i.e. breaking copyright or something).
    You would need to remove/disavow the bad backlinks to recover the domain. Some people report success from 301ing a spammed domain, but it can lead to your other site getting blacklisted too so it's a bit of a dodgy area for short-term gain.

    Basically, do your checking before purchasing expired or expiring domains to make sure they're clean before you point them anywhere.

    I have been dominating the serps with this method for the past 2/3 months so can vouch it works. How long it will last I don't know.

    What I would like to add though and this is personal experience so it might not apply to everyone but whilst it does work it has only worked for around 2 weeks maximum and then my site gets slapped. This has happened about 5 times for me. BUT I have been using the same domains to 301 to the new sites so this could be the issue but I don't care at the moment. A week or so is good enough for me :)

    Great feedback, thanks. I recommend putting a spin on the method so you're not just straight 301-ing to new sites all the time, but it seems to be working for you so nice one!

    I really want to see how future Google updates affect this method too; if they slap everyone with a 301 to their site there will be some serious neg seo attacks.

    Nothing new about this method.Penguin/Panda updates are punishing 301 redirects.It is recommended to use this method when you just need to rank a site for a couple of weeks on page 1 and bank seriously until it gets de-ranked by google.Then just rinse and repeat. For this purpuso this tutorial is great.Thanks OP.

    If you choose the 301 method, sure. But that's only 1 of the things you can do with the domains once you find them - if you're interested in long-term ranking, you can throw a site on there with archived content, as i mentioned, and build an authority site.

    There's really no need for an unformatted pdf version, it's not a long post.

    If an expired domain doesn't show up when I google info:domain.com, what does that mean? Is it penalized? Or is an expired domain just not supposed to show up until it's active again?

    If a domain doesn't show in google when you search for site:domain.com or info:domain.com, then it's not indexed. It could indicate that the site has been banned, but it could also mean it was never indexed. Similarly, it could mean that google has recorded the site expiry and removed it from the index.

    It's better to use indexed domains wherever possible.

    OP, So, should I do a straight 301 redirect from my Godaddy account's control panel or buy a separate hosting and then do this via htaccess tweaking??
