4. What you should know about expired domain before buying?
You will buy any expired domain without knowing anything about it? Definitely not because we need some reason to purchase that domain. That thing should not be there in brand new domain. So, There are some metrics you should know about that domain in order to decide that we can purchase or not! So, here are they,
1. PR (Page rank)
Page rank is the most important factor for which you should care about before buying expired domain. If you are buying 0 PR domain which is expired then i think its better to buy brand new domain because PR of brand new domain will be also 0 and main thing is brand new domain will be unused.
So, PR matters a lot, Now let’s move to 2nd thing for which you should care about,
2. DA(Domain authority)
Domain authority is also a metric for which you should care about before buying expired domain name. If DA of expired domain is high then and only then take it. High doesn’t means 20-30 because it can be get by doing hard work on brand new domain also.
If you got domain name which is expired then you can directly check its DA and PA using Open site explorer by Moz. So, the domain you selected must have good DA and PA. If it has good DA then you can go further to 3rd most important thing.
3. Quality of backlinks
Backlinks are the major factor by which we can get high DA and high PR. So, backlinks maters a lot and it may happen that the domain you selected has spam links which will not be good for your site and also google can penalize it. So, In expired domains, you also have to see quality of backlinks. So, how can you check quality of backlinks? So, here are the signs of High quality links,
1. Relevancy of backlinks
You got domain, Now you have to check that backlinks are relevant to your niche or not. By checking anchor text of backlinks that domain got in past, we can decide that domain was used to create a site of which niche. For example, Anchor text of backlinks is Best SEO tools for bloggers then we can decide that the blog or site was related to blogging and SEO.
So, If you want to know anchor text then you can check it from the tool named ahrefs. By using ahrefs, you can get information about backlink profile of any domain. It will also show anchor text of backlinks just like it shown for my blog,
Similar to this, you will get anchor cloud for any domain you enter in ahrefs but note that you can only check stats about 1 domain only. If you want to check stats of more then 1 domain then you have to register for ahrefs using email, Google or facebook. After registering, you can check stats of 5 domains. If you want to check stats for more then 5 domains then you have to purchase ahrefs pack.
So, If anchor text is also releavnnt to your niche then you can go ahead to 2nd point.
2. High PR
The page from which you got backlink is having high PR? If it has PR of 3,4 or more then that then backlink from that page is very good for you and they can help you in future also.
So, if PR of the page from which you got backlinks is high then you can go ahead to 3rd point.
3. Links / page
So, the domain you selected has backlinks from the pages that has hundreds of external backlinks then think that PR and DA doesn’t matters at all because that type of backlinks can do nothing.
If your domain has backlinks from the page from which very few external backlinks are given and one is to yours then that type of links can be very much useful if it has High PR and DA and also PA.
