Expired domains are becoming more increasingly used for SEO, because you can do many things with these domains, such as building a private network of blogs or PBN. You can also use them as redirects to your money sites. One of the main advantages of expired domains is that you really don’t have to do much to build them since they already have authority and inbound links to them. In the Post-Penguin era this is essential. So pay close attention to this tutorial.
There are mainly 4 types of expired domains. Some are cheaper than others of course, but the truth is that the domain industry is quite large and there are always really good domains available at auctions for any budget.
We can buy expensive or cheap domains from different broker sites. At auctions some domains can go upwards of$ 10,000. Logically, these are very good domains, but these are irrelevant to most marketers. Most of the time, we look for great domains at a great price we can use to make PBN’s.
Below are the different types of domains and where you can buy them.
A domain tagged under “Pre Release” is when the owner does not renew before the date of expiration. These domains come into auction and the highest bidder takes it in case the owner does not renew.
Some characteristics of these domains:
- Quality: Normal / good / very good
Cost: Very High
