Domain Hunter Gatherer, The Best Way To Find Expired Domains and Build a PBN
The importance of backlinks, SEO tactics, and using expired domains or a PBN to secure a good ranking on Google searches can’t be overlooked. In today’s world of online marketing, whether you have a blog, do affiliate marketing, have an eCom (Shopify, Etsy, eBay, etc…) store or just have a pet passion project that you’d like the world to see – you need to use SEO (at least some) tactics to get yourself seen. As the owner of a digital agency we work with clients to get them more internet traffic through SEO, local wifi hotspots, YouTube video traffic and even Pay-Per-Click campaigns. However, the Pay-Per-Click is out of scope for this topic even though it is the “great equalizer” when it comes to online traffic if you don’t have page 1 Google ranking yet.
Backlinks, SEO, Why Expired Domains, and the Important PBN
There is on-page SEO and off-page SEO. For this discussion I’ll be speaking to off-page SEO and specifically backlinks that are already associated with expired domains that you could provide a boost to your domain authority and provide better SEO rankings. There is another purpose for this tactic and it’s to build Private Blog Networks, which are blogs you (or someone) owns that is very selective in what and when they provide backlinks to other sites because they wish to protect their inherited domain authority if they purchased expired domains for the purpose of building a PBN or they built up their domain authority and want to protect what they have built. Either way Google trusts that they have good content and because of that trust any when a PBN posts a link to another site that site will receive some “domain authority juice” and could experience a boost in their own Google SEO rankings.
Got a Good Memory?
So you can see why this use of expired domains can be a tactic you’d want to investigate. But the real time to look for good opportunities is before they are expired. With the competition that is out there if you wait someone else will have found it and snatched it up. Additionally, there are so many domain auction sites that it can be dizzying to remember what you saw and where… it’s can be a confusing and time consuming effort. And this is where Domain Hunter Gatherer comes in. This platforms helps you see what is about to expire and allows you to prepare to pounce on the domains as soon as it’s available. As I’m always looking for easier more automatized way to build my own network or websites I came across Domain Hunter Gatherer and was very impressed with their services and pricing since the lowest level is FREE (how can you complain about that?).
Here is their video giving a high level overview:
Levels of Service
The FREE level will get you started and make your life much easier. There will be some manual steps you’ll have to complete if you opt for this level but this tool will help you find what is available and then you can start to focus on the work needed to secure them.
The next level up is Premium at $17.00 a month and provides all what the FREE version provides and more services for Web 2.0 sites with links AND social shares which provide even more of that “domain authority juice” we are all so eager to obtain. More threads, and unlimited accounts are also included as well as a 30 day money back guarantee. A no brainer for anyone looking to make their life a bit more streamlined.
And Finally there is the Professional level at $87.00 a month, which throws in the kitchen sink and provides everyone one could need to find any site they wish to acquire in one spot (except to actually purchase the domain when they find it). The service offered for the Professional level are too numerous to list here so I’ll just provide a link for you to check out yourself here.
