    A few weeks back, I decided to join a few groups on Facebook that buy/sell pbn domains and posts... one of the worst IM decisions I've made so far (with the worst being part of Warrior Forum when I first started out).

    The amount of idiots that roam the place is astonishing, all trying to sell their "high pr" domains, which they claim have clean archive histories and anchors... but most of the time, these guys barely do any manual checking and give you the run around with unrealistic promises. And yes, these are mostly Indians. Before anyone thinks that's racist (lol), I am Indian myself.

    Anyway, one of the most irritating people I have ever come across... starts off by promising an authority post on a very high authority domain (which shows up high for a lot of medical info). I thought hey, whatever it's $10 so I paid him. Then he tells me it was the WRONG paypal account (typo)... arghh FFS. Got a refund a few days later and paid again. A few days later, I get a link from the "Q and A" section of the site which doesn't get indexed, is nofollow, and on top of that got deleted within a few hours. $10 gone. Plus a whole bunch of back and forth with this moron on Facebook about getting a link from one of his PBN sites (which also went offline a few days back)... sigh...

    Next guy was selling an unbelievably high metric domain for a fairly reasonable price. After asking him some questions, I paid through PayPal (it was a dropped domain supposedly). He seemed to know what he was talking about, and if it was garbage then I could get my money back. Anyway, once he revealed the domain to me, it was a SUB DOMAIN which is part of a still-registered website. Fucks saaaaakeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!! I had a good rage at him for about 10 minutes and I got a refund the next day.

    There are some other stories, but the moral is this: Stick to sourcing your own domains if you can, and if you find a RELIABLE supplier, then treat them like the gold miners they are.

    The Facebook groups are complete and utter waste of time, and sifting through the bullshit, and having to vet everyone you buy from is extremely tedious. One guy even claimed he had a celebrities domain, and wanted $5000 for it. After I laughed my ass off, I told him he was never going to get anything for it because it had such poor metrics... then he asked if I could "teach" him. Oh god...

    Anyway, if you guys know of reliable vendors from the FB PBN buy/sell groups then please name them here.

    Its better to fall early and learn rather than falling flat on the face.

    There was a thread here which was about joining a skype group to exchange posts. Try searching and you will find it.

    It also depends on one thing I suppose. I personally do not scam people (as an ethic) but do not do things for cheap either nowadays. I am a Fiverr buyer and for several months, I used to give good high quality domains for basic Fiverr gigs. Then I realized that I was just fcking my own time and energy for something far more valuable. So, I left it completely. I probably received 3-4 messages nowadays asking me for high quality domains for dirt cheap. I just blatantly (yet politely) refuse to accept any such offer. I am also an Indian but I am not of the type who likes to make money by hook or by crook. And I am also not going to provide services for dirt cheap which would waste half of my day. So, you also need to be careful with what sort of people you are dealing with. If you are going to look for dirt cheap, you would probably get dirt cheap quality. Again, it all depends on stats. Anyone can provide PA DA domains for dirt cheap any time of the day. But if you need high TF CF combination, the criteria becomes a lot difficult in expired domains. PR is abandoned and so, it isn't of any benefit nowadays. Out of hundreds of domains expiring per day (to give an example), hardly a few dozen of them have perfect stats of PA DA TF CF. So, they would obviously not get sold for dirt cheap as finding them takes a lot of effort.

    NOTE: I have never joined or plan to ever join any such Facebook groups. But I am just giving an example of Fiverr as I am an Indian and used to do business there in the past.

    We'd go on a long trail in groups but in business, I'd rather go solo and find what best suits my business. I don't think this is a very bright idea, OP.

    Groups thing would hardly work in your interest.
