    While scraping domains I found the domain I listed here for discussion to learn about metrics and checking of (expired) domains.
    Hat do you see which would prevent you from investing 7$ reg fee?

    . . . . . . . ..... MOZ... Ahrefs. Majestic
    Domain TLD PA DA PR BL RD MR CF TF CF/TF
    www*insanitydvdvideo.com .com 39 31 N/A 12K 185 4.19 24 17 1.41
    Torch2.jpg

    Checking metrics (DA/PA/MR) all great and even CF and TF as well as CF/TF ratio are great.
    1 registrar, no drop
    Wayback machine with domain history: original website
    Anchors: no spam
    Backlinks: some edu, most other are link farms

    Beside the link farms so far OK.

    Would you register such a domain for a reg fee of 7$?

    Cheers

    Sure, it definetly is worth more than the reg fee.

    That's not my cup of tea as all the inflated metrics you see on the Majestic & Moz are coming from spammy links.

    Code:

    Take them out of the equation and you're left with a domain that's not even worth it's registration fee. Not to mention it's de-indexed from Google. I'd clearly steer away from such domains.

    De-indexed means nothing as it's usual Google de-index expired domain as there is nothing to index. I registered it anyway for demo, so will put just a micro website and if not penalized, should be indexed fast.

    I see a lot of blog comments (not always bad) and a lot of links coming from non-english domains. I also see the domain is very hard to make brandable unless your moneysites are in the videos or DVD niche or something similar.

    Most pages it's linked to have a very high number of OBL's, and I see no real authority sites.

    Honestly, I wouldn't buy it.

    But yeah like you said above, just because the site isn't showing up on google doesn't mean it's deindexed...

    Just to mention that there is insanity workout dvd, so probably someone used the domain before to spam it for these terms (without looking at anchors etc). Don't think there is much value in it.
