Find POWERFUL Expired Domains (with ExpiredDomains.net)


– [Instructor] Hey
what’s up, this is Nathan from Gotch SEO and in this
video I’m going to show you how to find expired domains
using expireddomains.net. So, I am inside the
expireddomains.net dashboard, so what you’ll need to do is
sign up for a free account and you’ll be able to see
exactly what I’m seeing here. And, you will feel a little
overwhelmed by what you see here, so I’m gonna just
choose one of these options here so we can make it easier. So what I’m gonna do is I’m
going to pick show all domains with t f greater than 20. So t f is trust flow,
which is majestics metric. And so I’m going to use this
just as an example to show you what is going on here with this tool. So the first thing I’m
going to do is I’m going to click this filter button,
and then I am going to click on additional. And I’m just gonna select
dot com and dot net and dot org. And then what I’m going to
do is click apply filter and then it’s going to show me all of these link opportunities,
well it didn’t do it on this first try, but I’m
gonna go ahead and click here and click on this so we
can make it all dot com. And so now what we see are all
these dot com opportunities and actually this will only
be dot com opportunities. So I’m going to copy this
first domain and I’m going to throw it into a hrefs. And so what I’m trying to
do here is I’m trying to see the quality of the links
going to this domain. And so in this example,
as you can tell, the links that are going to this
domain are very low quality because they all say
fake RayBan sunglasses, which is the anchor texts from those link. We don’t need to do a
lot of extra research to determine whether this
domain is qualified or not because it’s immediately
disqualified from this process because of this obviously
spammed anchor text and link building. So, what I’m going to do
now is I am back here in the expired domains dot net
dashboard and I’m actually going to sort this list
by total back links. So now I’m going to copy
this second domain here and I’m going to repeat
this process again. I’m gonna throw it into
a hrefs and I’m gonna see if it has a high quality link profile. So right away I could see
that this domain does not have many linking domains,
so we know that it would not be a good candidate for
the merger technique. And if you were gonna use
it as a private blog network domain, it would also not
be a good one because it isn’t powerful enough. But, when you find expired
domains that have very little linking root domains,
it’s an opportunity to use the white hat alternative
to PBNs because you can actually extract those
back links from the domain. In this case, it looks
like it doesn’t have many high quality domains, it
has about one link that’s worth it, maybe. And it looks like that link
is actually pretty spammed, looks kind of like a link
farm, so we’d wanna pass on this opportunity as well. So now I’m gonna go back
and I’m gonna go through a few different domains
here and see if I can find any high quality opportunities. And so, right now I’m in
the deleted domains section. And these domains usually
are not the highest quality, and so what I would do is
I would change the filter so that we can actually filter
out a lot of these domains. Because what you’re gonna
see is a lot of these domains just don’t have a lot of
linking root domains, and that’s something we do
not want to be looking at because it’s actually
a huge waste of time. So, we need to find domains
that do have a decent amount of linking root domains so
that we have a bigger pool of links that we can leverage. So now I’m gonna click
on marketplace domains. And then I’m gonna click on
the GoDaddy auctions domains, and the reason for that
is because these domains are my favorite. I personally like GoDaddy
auctions and the reason for that is because these
domains are usually the highest quality. So I’m gonna copy this
first domain, and I’m gonna throw it into a hrefs
and it looks like this is not a good opportunity because
I didn’t set my filters. Alright, so I’m gonna go
back and set the filters appropriately and what I’m
going to do is I’m gonna click on this majestic tab. And I’m gonna change the
external back links minimum to five, and then change
the trust flow to a minimum of 10, and so this will
help filter out a lot of these domains. And we don’t wanna be wasting our time on. So once again I’m gonna
copy this first domain, throw it into a hrefs,
gonna click on back links and I’m gonna see if this domain has any high quality back links. And it looks like this
domain has been spammed very heavily, one way
to tell is looking at the anchor texts. So, if the majority of
the anchor texts looks keyword ridge, there’s a
good chance that this domain has been spammed. Just to verify this, I’ll
actually go to the anchor texts tab over here and see. And so you can tell right
away this domain has been spammed to death. So it’s definitely not a
domain we’d want to use. So now I’m gonna copy another domain. Throw it in here. And we’ll go ahead and
check out its back links. And it looks like this
domain is a little bit better than the last one. And it has some high quality
links in here it looks like. It doesn’t look like it’s been
spammed really in any way. So, what we’ll wanna do is
we’ll actually wanna click on one of these links to see
and validate basically that these are real links and
that the links are still live. And so one thing I like to do is I like to usually copy the anchor texts
and then just run a search. And it looks like the link is still live. So, this is not a bad
link here, this looks like a relevant website. What we wanna do now is
just add this domain to our watch list on GoDaddy. Let’s do another search
for another domain. And we’ll see if we can get two. Look at the back links for
this domain, and it looks like this domain has some
high quality links from business insider and some
other great opportunities. This one looks pretty solid. So what we’re gonna wanna
do is we’re gonna make sure that it hasn’t been spammed in the past. So this is the second qualification
method you need to use. And so we’ll see what this
looks like previously. And hopefully it hasn’t
been spammed, and if it has then we’ll go ahead and unqualify it. But, let’s take a look here
using the way back machine to see if it’s actually
qualified and has been used for spam. So unfortunately, this
domain looks like it has been used as a private
blog network or maybe even a public blog network. We’re gonna want to
disqualify this domain. So in this case, you could
use the links that are going to this domain, and
use the white hat alternative to PBNs and just extract
those links from the domain. But as far as using it as a domain for the merger technique or using
it as a domain for a private blog network if
you wanted, it would not be one that you’d wanna use. Because it has definitely
been used as a network in the past. So as you can see, this
is a very intense process of trying to find high
quality expired domain. Just continually go through
this list, keep trying to find new opportunities, and
don’t settle on any domains. You really want to focus on
getting high quality domains or at least finding domains
with high quality links that you could of course
extract using the white hat alternative to PBNs. And if you’re gonna use the
merger technique, make sure the domain is a very high
quality, has a very high quality link profile, it has
unoptimized anchor text, and it hasn’t been used
for spam in the past. And then number three,
is make sure the domain is relevant to your
business if you’re gonna use the merger technique. That is all for finding
expired domains or even expiring domains using expireddomains.net. Thank you so much for watching. And I will see you in the next video.
