    I am looking at buying aged (5+yrs) domains off of g0daddy auctions and there are a lot of good deals BUT. When I do a site:sitename.com check I am not getting any results in google. Does this mean that the domain has been deindexed? All the domains that I check seem to be the same.

    Thank you BHW... Again!

    Just means that it is not currently indexed. This is going to be the case with most domains that have never had a site built upon them. Check waybackmachine to see if there has ever been a site built on it.

    Yes it was deindexed and it is better than having indexed thousand pages, but without having that content (database) it will make more problems then good.

    So if you see 0 indexed, that is not a problem, if you intent to add new content and so on.

    This is a great way to build up your own private blog network. It's what I've been developing myself for quite some time.

    That is perfectly fine, I did the same and the domain was not indexed (2yrs old I blv). This is because Google now deindexes parked pages, since all domains display a parked page after expiration and non renewal by owner, they get deindexed by google after some time.

    However a ping was enough to get my domain indexed by google, took 3 days only. Best of luck.

    You can check Wayback Archive to see the previous existance of the Domain...!!

    You can do this easily by going to >> http://cekpr.com and run your domain through it .

    You also get to know the Actual Page rank of the domain and Link popularity , Archive and Many more !!

    Cheers :)

    I believe a website has more cred if there used to be an indexed website built on it in the past. If it's been aged without any previous sites built upon it, I'm not sure if that's worth as much.

    Thanks for all of the input, it has changed my way of thinking. I like the method (from BHW!) of buying any old 2+year domain and 301 redirecting it to a new EMD of choice therefore carrying the age to the new domain. Seems like the only way to go!

    You can buy from a broker, from flippa, digitalpoint has also a section, from expired auctions (godaddy has some good closeout deals starting from $5) ... there are different sources, but in any case, the most important you have to check are 2 things:

    1) the PR is not fake/forged

    2) the do-follow backlinks are alive and will hold

    Because if you don't review these things you might end up paying for a domain that will drop to PR0

    some people will also tell you to buy non dropped domains, to set hosting and private whois as soon as possible .... you can find many of these recommendations in this forum, I know Terry as talked about this many times.
