How to Find Cheap Expired Domains for your PBN
Private blog networks have become the BEST way to rank any website and there are a ton of questions regarding building one. A lot of people think that it costs a fortune to build their own personal network but I am here today to show a very cost effective way to go about buying sites for your network.
The method that I will be explaining below will save you a lot of money but it will require some time and work to find these expired domains. You could take a shortcut and go overpay for domains at GoDaddy auctions or take time and find your own. I will show you how to find domains for the price that it costs to register domain.
The best thing about this way of finding domains is that it is very easy to find expired domains that are related to whatever niche that you are in. I will explain more about that in the videos below. One thing to note is that this method is a really easy way to find domains in the domain authority range of 15-20 and page authority range of 25-35. You will sometimes find a domain with really good metrics but most often the domain will fall into the range listed above.
There are some needed tools to be able to find these expired domains. You are able to do it while using all free tools but by having Majestic seo or Open Site Explorer makes it a lot easier.
- Microsoft excel or Google Spreadsheets
- Wayback Machine
- Bulk Domain Search
- MajesticSeo or Open Site Explorer
Part 1 and Part 2 Videos
This method that I will be showing you all is a variation of Hayden from No Hat Seo. He did a similar method and that is actually where I learned how to do this. So in no way am I trying to steal his work or ideas. I added a couple of my own variations and I think that it will be very helpful to you all!
The first video will show you the whole process that I go through when searching for the domains with the exception of using excel. The second video will focus more on using excel and spam checking domains. I would suggest watching both videos to get the best understanding of how to do this. If you only watch one make sure to watch the first one, that will show you my entire process of finding expired domains.
I hope that the videos above helped you get a good idea of how I look for expired domains. This method takes some time and effort but you are able to find highly relevant sites that are decently powerful. I really like the flexibility that this method has, you are able to find expired domains in almost any niche that you want.
If you have any questions or comments please let me know in the comments below. I will gladly answer any questions you may have. I had a good time making these videos so if you have any other things that you want to know just let me know! Thanks for watching!
hello Josh.. I thoroughly enjoyed your video on finding expired domains. I am doing this method and have had some gr8 success previously. I am also an nohat intern… 🙂 I have some good domains with me, but the problem is i am running out of hosts..I wana talk to u regarding this.. I can find many good domains but the irony is lack of good hosts.. Can u send me your skype id to my mail… I would like to talk to u regarding this in detail..
I have just sent you an email!
ive read similar idea from yes hayden…. but i fnd it hard and time consuming but i do believe these domains are gem type… so anyone can go for it and save a lot of money…
I really enjoyed and appreciated your post. I’m curious why you prefer Majestic over Ahrefs. It seems like Hayden uses Ahrefs quite a bit.
Thanks for the guide I have been waiting for this tutorial for a while it helped me hugely! Found a couple of gems myself, really appreciate you setting up these tutorials. I have one month free before I start university hoping to dip my feet into building my own PBN sites.
My question is once you have found your domains how to do you set-up hosting for this websites? It would be great if you could post a tutorial on that, showing how you hide your footprints and other things that need to be considered when starting a PBN.
Just to answer my own question, I will be using Hostnine for hosting as it allows different class-c IP’s using just a single reseller package.
sorry for the late response but I would stay away from hostnine or any other service like that. It is better to put all of your PBN sites on a separate host. It may cost a little more but it is much much safer!
Thanks for letting me know Josh, I’ll have to look into getting the cheap shared hosting to hide my footprints. Don’t want the big G cracking the whip!
You are very welcome Ram 🙂
Hi Josh, I haven’t been to your site for a while so maybe you have covered this but how would you go about getting your niche sites ranked without the use of a PBN? Let’s say Google penalized anyone caught using a PBN tomorrow -what would be your fall back plan?
