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 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: 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.
