    Hello Everyone, i have started using this free service but i will eventually move on to subscribe to freshdrop later but i wanted to use this as the starting poin. Anyway i have this attachment which shows some domains with good Moz Baclinks, some up to 3k BL's. I wanted to find out if you were to purchase any of these domains, what would you consider first. Is it the BL's, the year of the domain , the alexa rank or other factors. I indicated the last one with an arrow because i thought it has a popular technology name attached to the domain so it sounds like a good one.Im pretty new to this so i may be wrong.


    Note: All these domains are expired

    Thank you

    Definitely the backlinks, if the backlink profile is spammy, it's not worth it. Next the age of domain, maybe you could check some metrics too but don't rely on them. Alexa rank isn't even worth checking.

    Few things that matter is numbers of backlinks and RD + Quality of backlinks, like links from within articles are consider best. Moz score DA PA just help you give little info about domain quality.

    Moz DA/PA and Majestic CF/TF are good starting points. Having PR doesn't hurt, if you find something with decent stats you can look into it more deeply and if you find some real authority links snatch it up before someone else does.

    I wouldn't be scared off by some spammy looking links if it has lots of good quality relevant links from decent sites as well. Generally a shitty site will have outright shitty stats anyway.

    When buying dropped domains you should consider those with good page rank, high backlinks, high DA/PA, and good niche. Usually, my first action is to check the DA/PA of the dropped domains using Moz. I suggest you also use majesticseo and opensiteexplorer so you can easily check if the domain is worth buying.

    When just starting out analyzing domain backlink profiles, I think the metrics from moz and majestic can be a huge help in making a rough estimate. Not only for the domain itself, but also the domains linking to it. Then as you go through enough domains you will start seeing what aspects to focus on. But I think referring domains, number of backlinks and type of links (for example are they all blog comments, forum posts, or are they coming from online newspaper articles?) would be a good place to start :) this is just my two cents though
