PBNs 2019 – Domain Detailing – Picking Expired Domains And 301 Redirects

In PBNs 2019 Part 1 we discussed some logistics of organization on a high level concerning Cloudflare, Spreadsheets and above all randomness.  In this the second part of our private blog network series we’ll focus on expired domains and the assessing of their value.

Domain Authority Is One Part

First, we will look at Domain Authority but before we do lets note Domain Authority in and of itself is worthless.  It IS NOT used by Google.  It is made by a company called Moz and it is their best guest how Google interrupts the content on a site based on a lot of factors but not all the factors and not in the same ratio.  Why do we use it then?  Google doesn’t have to tell us their formula for ranking a site in their results…in fact to do so would likely be a disservice to everyone involved.  So based on observation and conjecture Moz provides us with an imperfect rating called Domain Authority.  It is though in the end a made up number that is flawed.  It was so flawed that DA 2.0 came out in March 2019 where many sites saw their rating plummet.  Search results didn’t change … why would they when they are not connected to DA.  Now thats out of the way…

Expired Domains

We should start with https://expireddomains.net its a good site that has aggregated the domains being deleted from multiple registrars and it provides some base metrics that we can use to qualify domains for a closer look.  There are millions of deleted domain names and we need someway to filter them down to something you can work with.

Why do we care about expired domains?  Your PBN is attempting to mlmic organically earned backlinks.  In the real world backlinks would likely come from sites that have their own backlink profiles and no two organic sites would likely have the same backlink profile.  Buying a new domain name will come with 0 backlinks.  Buying a used one will likely include some backlinks therefore giving your PBN its power.  Think of these like telephone numbers…and you want someone to call you…you wont want to use the old number of someone who didn’t have any friends, but if you get a popular person’s old number then your phone is more likely to ring.  Sure they are after the former owner ( or site in our case ) but if you can answer their questions and keep them happy they may keep calling.  Same with expired domains.

Another site that focuses on expired domains is domcop.com.  They are expensive and I’ve never used them because I can do all the work it does pretty swiftly and save the 100 dollars a month.  Sure they have a cheaper plan but you cant do anything with it.  Access to the expired section and archived section isn’t included …. making it relatively worthless.  Back to expireddomains.net its free.  Once we log in we can choose filters to sort down to the domains we want.  Some of the filters I always put into play are:

expireddomains.net filters

expireddomains.net filters

The Main Tab

  1. Domain Name   CONTAINS  – If I want a domain about a hospital I’ll type ” hospital ” then may remove some domains that would have worked but its helpful.  If you get too few results you can remove the filter.
  2. Length – I set this to no more than 15 characters.  Longer ones are likely created for some weird purpose.
  3. Hyphens – I set this to no more than 1
  4. Backlinks – I set this to 10 or more.  Keep in mind that the metrics reported may not be accurate all the time but this at least fishes out all the domains that have 0 links.
  5. Only New Last 7 Days – 7 days is ages in this kind of hunt but for our purposes I leave a few extra days because those that set it to 12 or 24 hours may have missed a gem.  After a week though the pile is looted beyond use.
  6. Only Available Domains – who cares about it if its already registered for someone else.
  7. Domains per page – change this to the max … 200.

The Additional Tab

  1. I check NO CCTLDS and NO SECOND LEVEL DOMAINS – the quality of the domains aren’t worth your time in these country codes unless you are specifically targeting that country…but even then a .org or a .info is better usually than a .bi

The Adwords & SEO Tab

  1. Domain Pop – How many domains point to the expired domain?  A site with 100 backlinks from 1 domain is less valuable than a site with 10 backlinks from 10 domains.  So we want to make sure we have the most domains pointing to our site.  I generally set this to 50 or 100.
  2. Wikipedia – If I have a ton of results after all these filters then I may put a minimal of 1 here…but thats a secondary search if iI need to filter more.

The Majestic Tab

  1. Trust Flow – I’ll set this to 7.  Its rare to find a high trust expired domain as they’ve been picked up usually in an auction but you don’t want a trust flow of below 5 so I put that number in here to ensure the site has some trust.
  2. I may use the drop down filer Majestic Topical Trust Flow for specific niches but be careful here because the sites often lose context of the domain name… for instance a domain named “ThisIsHealthInsurance.com” can very easily be miscategorized as transit.

Filtered Results

Search and gain these results….

expired domains search results for pbns

expired domains search results for pbns

Now most of these values are worthless to me.  They are cached results usually and not exactly accurate.  SO I use the clip board icon to export the top 200 sites that made it through our filters.  I sort these results though first by Domain Pop or DP in the graph.  Use the clip board to export just the domain names to your clip board. clipboard

clipboard

Domain Detailer – Accurate SEO Metrics

With these export names in order of domain pop I paste the results into a speed-sheet for safe keeping.  And then I use a program called Domain Detailer.  You can download it … its an application on PC.  You can buy credits and each domain name looked up takes a credit.  But you get a ton for your money.  Ive probably spent 80 bucks on these credits and looked up over a hundred thousand domains in this tool.  The metrics reported are more accurate than expireddomains.net metrics.

Domain Detailer

Domain Detailer

From Domain Detailer I paste the domain names I have selected and click “Add From Text Box” with credits the program will build you a spreadsheet with metrics that should be semi self explanatory.  The metrics I focus on are Moz DA, Majestic Domains, Majestic TF and the categories.  Backlinks are often off and its good that we have two sources … Moz and Majestics counts … if either has some I believe the higher one.

When I find a domain that has a mix of these metrics that seems above the group I move to the final phase.

Anchor Text

I open SEMRush.com and search that domain name and verify that the domain pop is as good as I expected.  I then check the anchor text and if the anchor text is consistent with the keywords I’d like to be pulling in I then say … its time to buy.

Remember to use a registrar that offers free private registration and shop around they are not all the same price.

We’ll talk soon about PBNs and the onsite things that you’ll need to consider when building the site up.  You also may decide that you just want to help a specific site out and skip building a PBN site and 301 redirect all backlinks to the main domain…we’ll cover that as well in Part 3.

11 SEO Tips Quick Reference Guide

Read too many blogs explaining the art of disavowing backlinks based on the referring site’s link metrics and now just ready to pull out your hair?  Before you do you may benefit from getting back to the important stuff…the basics:

  1. Focus more on your backlinks than keywords more than you usually do
  2. Have backlinks link to the specific post not the site homepage
  3. Page Speed….seriously….3 second load is the goal.  Over 6 seconds forget about everything else
  4. Every page needs a Title, Description, One H1 Header, And An Image with the Alt-text containing your keyword
  5. Your title should describe your page, in a unique manner that sets this page apart from all the rest
  6. Focus your page content on a specific topic, don’t mix just for length
  7. Make sure your most important pages are within no more than 2 clicks from the homepage, limit the number of links to below 100
  8. Create social media accounts and reference them in your content
  9. Link to at least two external dofollow authoritative sites to your content, as supportive documents
  10. Post no less than once per week…and announce that post in social media with a link to the content
  11. Make use of tags and categories to tie similar content together

Multi-Domain Strategy In SEO … Risky But Lets Have Some Risk

So I feel like its everyone’s dream to be a media conglomerate, why buy one newspaper when you can buy 100s?  Well, SEO and the internet are one big community…so in the analogy … why build multiple newspapers in the same city?  No one would do that and it’s about the same with the internet or at least it should be…but everyone wants to have multiple top ranking domains.

Real Life Examples Of Multiple Domains

There is only two ways this could work out…

  • Your brand is merging with another equally powerful and recognized brand and dissolving either brand will leave a huge gap that competitors will fill fast than you can with your one brand.  Example … Zillow bought Trulia for 3.5 billion they represent the number one and number two home listings sites.  They have continued to operate two sites in the same niche because anything other than what they have now is less than optimal.  SO … you can do the same when your billion dollar company buys out your #2 competition for 4 billion or so dollars.  Until then…this first scenario doesn’t work for you.

zillow has a multiple domain strategy

Trulia Is In A Multiple Domain Strategy

  • Your brand is buying a vertical business…(word for it escapes just now but its not the point so moving on) Let’s say you make eyeglasses, you make almost all of the eyeglasses.  So you buy the stores that sell them and then you buy the vision insurance company too.  Thats what I mean…Your original business was production and you dealt with retail outlets, you couldn’t make hardly any more glasses so you expanded vertically in the supply chain.  Its the story of that famous eye glass company you know that owns all the others… Luxottica.  Never heard of them well…they did a “Multi-Domain” strategy and you have heard of these companies… EyeMed, Target Optical, Pearle Vision, Lens-crafters, Sunglass Hut, Glasses.com … theres more but you get the point.  A consumer believe they have choice in the market but thats because you let them.  Combined all these companies are 1/4 of all eyewear value in all the little pieces of that industry.  They command it.  Your new domain JimmysBestTshirtsThatRFunny.info is not them you need one domain…so buying 8 other T-shirt domains wont help you other than maybe you got a better name than that monster.  Now the key part of this strategy though is vertical integration…your retail store isn’t competing with your vision insurance company and its not competing with the factory … they’re all buyers of each other till a consumer gets it.

Increased Competition But Not Sales

Thats really about it.  You’re likely going to have room to grow in the sector you are in for sometime and you wont have the funds to buy up a fourth of the world’s T-shirt makers so focus on your one domain.  Why?  Well…changing the names to protect the guilty.  I had a client who insisted on multiple domains we’ll say they were a tour company that ran guided tours of Liberty Island in NYC.  Its a weird niche just cause you don’t have to have a guided tour to see the Island but because of the demand and popularity several companies sprout up and sale tickets to a national park property.  Its easy money with online sales being where its at … but if you have 5 competitors sites you figure well lets add two more so now there are 7 sites and your competition adds 2 sites thats 15 now plus your 3 …. so we now have 18 sites all competing for the same audience and the same experience.  Did you know that it’s really hard to rank up to the top 3 spots with one site?  So now to benefit from what you’ve done you need to rank up 3 times that and fight off 15 instead of 5 other sites.  We didn’t even have a second page until now in search results and someone has to be on it.

Multiple Domain Canabalism SEO

When Multiple Domains Don’t Work

So thing about your multiple domains, assign keywords to one … then move to the next domain … don’t assign the same keywords and the same role to that site, you’re just competing with yourself.  Also you’re diluting your search traffic maybe combined you have 30% of the traffic but Google doesn’t see that, it sees 15% here and 10% at this second domain and only 5% at the last site.  Say a competitor has a site thats at 16% his one site will out rank your three because you’ve split up all your efforts and resources.  Thats the problem with the Multi Domain Strategy.

When Might You Use Multiple Domains?

I like to think I don’t do that.  I have UltimateSEO.org and its SEO.  I have CLoud502.com and it is cloud computing and I have data502.com and its Data Analysis.  Related?  Of course but very different.  A person googling “AWS servers” isn’t going to click on a site about SEO.  You find niches for the domains and target the audience and keywords for those domains.

So in the end, before you grow to more than one domain ask yourself if this new domain will have a different audience than the first.  If not and if you can argue the same keywords fit both sites, you need one site.

So don’t eat yourself up with Multiple Domains.  I’ll be posting in the next day about my addition of UltimateSEO.net .. how I intend NOT to canabalize this site.

Bad Backlinks: 100 Sites You Don’t Want A Backlink From.

Bad Backlinks

UltimateSEO.org has backlinks from about a thousand domains.  In a recent review of these I found an odd reoccurring link from multiple domains but all with the same content and titles.  I was introduced with “The Globe” which charges sites to NOT list them or makes money from SEOs paying them to not backlink to them.  At $36 a link they’re likely insane and I bet its bringing in some money.  But before we go all crazy and start paying Ransomlinks (if its not a word I claim it … Ransomlinks are backlinks from bad sites meant to lower your SEO score unless you pay to not be linked too.)

In reviewing the situation I ran across a list of the most disavowed sites.  I figured Id share that with you below, but before I do what outcome did I choose for these bad links pointed to my site?

  1. Option 1 Pay: Heck No! Then the terrorists win.
  2. Disavow: No! Don’t use disavow unless Google has placed a manual action against your site.  I’m skeptical anyhow of the tools purpose and Google itself says there is no need to use the tool unless you’ve been penalized and told by them you are being penalized.
  3. Do Nothing: Yes! Don’t do anything. Google likely knows about the Ransomlinks scheme and has already penalized the site by deindexing it.  There are so many random domains its going to be a mess to address so let it be unless you have a seen a negative affect.  In other words…before you saw your leg off wondering if that spot is cancer…stop and find out.
  4. An idea: 301 Redirect Them…seriously…all of these links point to a subdomain that until now hasn’t existed.  Most others who are talking about this site note a similar subdomain targeted.   I could create the targeted subdomain and redirect all links to it from my site back to theirs.  🙂  

I’m opting for the third as I dont have any indication that Google cares about these Ransomlinks.  They may actually bring some random traffic of use so redirecting them would take that from my site.

Ultimate SEO – Focus On Strategy, Tools And Community Builds

Over the last month I’ve poured a bit of time … (everything that my clients didn’t get) into UltimateSEO.org and by chance UltimateSEO.net which was unregistered.  UltimateSEO.org was the focus because previous to my use someone else used it and built it up to a domain authority of 36.  Its taken me over six months to engineer this domain to a 29 so I wanted to see what I could do with a slightly further ahead domain name that included keywords.  This began the experiment.

Ultimate SEO Concept

To begin with a DA36 was great and all but why not improve on that I thought, so here’s a graph from ahrefs.com concerning backlinks and referring domains.

Ultimate SEO Backlinks

Ultimate SEO Backlinks

Yes, I’ve been busy.  The site needed built but as the graph shows I’ve worked hard on the off page SEO increasing domains linking to the site from under a hundred to over 300.  The sites rank on Ahrefs has climbed past 22,410,000 other sites in a month.  Its seen some fun traffic scenarios, least of which was the catalyst event for starting this experiment.  On Christmas Eve I redirected an SEO domain I had bought to this one and the search results where above the clouds, but just for the night.

Christmas SEO Miracle Or Late Night Fluke

That night magically I was ranking on page 5 for the impossible one word SEO keyword “seo” which if you aren’t into SEO you’d say page 5? Thats horrible…but think of how that affects your rankings for longer terms if Google considers your site about the 50th best SEO match then searching “anything SEO” is likely to swing up as well.  “SEO Tools” and “Google Data Studio Slow” where doing well, I was even ranking 67th for “Neil Patel” … and I’m not Neil Patel but he is kinda a big deal in the SEO world.  Searching “Upwork” I was ranking 43.  “Free SEO Tools”, “SEO Profiler Login”, “Political SEO” where all ranking UltimateSEO.org it only lasted the night.  A Christmas Miracle … why wasn’t it sustained?  Well I assume that Google quickly realized the content on the site was not the 50th best in the world.  But it was too late I had a taste or a glimpse of something possible.  I’d need content, optimized and more off page metrics…and thats what I’ve been working to achieve.

Side note I like my logo.  Its very me and I felt it sums up my personality style and the ultimate goal of any SEO.

Make An Impact

Make An Impact

“Make An Impact” along with an image of a comet or meteor hitting the earth sends a message.  Its explosive, it killed all the dinosaurs and brought us movies like Deep Impact and Armageddon Day.  So you’ll see that carry forward in later images.

Content Is King In SEO

Google Indexed Pages

Google Indexed Pages

Content was lacking I had just started so that was to be understood.  I’ve addressed content to some degree and the amount of pages that Google has indexed has reflected that I think.  December 12th Google found 38 pages worth indexing now it has 841, with 2,450 excluded and that exclusion is nothing but potential in my mind.  Not every page on a site is worth indexing, who cares about the login page?  The site has actually evolved into 3 WordPress installations on one domain.  I did that to isolate use areas so that they didn’t collectively slow the whole site down.  You can’t tell because I kept the theme the same.  But the site is 3 different sites that share a common table for users.

Ultimate SEO Blog

Ultimate SEO Blog

The homepage and the blog section of the site makes up the first installation.  This means the homepage loads without having to worry about the other two installations.  Its faster and has less baggage in the form of page requests.  This freedom from dependences puts the site at just about 50 total requests which I think is pretty darn streamlined.  This section is themed for the general public.

Ultimate SEO Client Site

Ultimate SEO Client Site

The second section is focused on customers and client relationship management.  I call it the “portal” it allows users to login and retrieve documents I’ve made for them or for them to offer documents to me and it has a billing functionality as well as a Support Desk which is available to the general public.  The support desk aspect also adds an “employee” type resource which I decided to expand to include the G Suite resources that I opted for … its a class act.  I may be one person but I have internal chat rooms and I can make telephone calls and issue HR policies on the intranet site.

Ultimate SEO Forum

Ultimate SEO Forum

While the first section offers something to bring a new person in with information and blog posts the third install hopefully adds the interactive element that non-clients or not-yet clients need to come back. Its a forum where in theory people can post and discuss SEO with others and offer each other advice and build relationships.

Each install has its audience and purpose and that largely dictates the content there.  Its lead itself to become the largest site I’ve made to this point.  Here is a visualization of the site.  Keeping in mind each dot is a page and the lines are the links. The brighter a dot the more traffic and activity it has and the colors reflect the state of the page’s functionality.

SEO Visualization Of Ultimate SEO

So let’s take a glimpse at traffic and I’ll try and tamper down initial thoughts on the numbers, if its too good to be true…it is.  Traffic is good but its not what you think at first, and the bad isn’t bad.  I use cloudflare so a lot of the traffic actually never reaches the site so lets look at Cloudflare’s metrics first.

Traffic Metric For Ultimate SEO

Cloudflare Traffic For Ultimate SEO

Cloudflare Traffic For Ultimate SEO

First thing to note from 30 days of tracking is 9,407 unique visitors is pretty good.  Maybe too good..you see these unique visitors are causing 1.1 million requests of the server I think its been like 100 a minute and its not even so a week ago the site migrated to its own new cPanel AWS server.  You can see where that happens in the top graph where we see a drop in traffic which funny enough was caused by me forgetting to redirect subdomains that the previous owner used to the main domain.  It still meant anyone going to an actual domain I made an intended to have got there I’ve since reinstated those redirects.  But the lower traffic gave me a bit of time to just deal with a few hundred visitors a day.

A lot of this traffic is likely not human but robots trying to figure out what the hell is going on.

Ultimate SEO Site Traffic

Ultimate SEO Site Traffic

Now in the graph above we can see the traffic since the January 23 move to the new server.  This also is only reflecting the traffic to the first main installation of WordPress.  Its strong and its been without the redirected traffic I described earlier.  This will begin to reflect that traffic.  But considering 634 visitors hit the site yesterday an increase in traffic is going to need to be managed without increasing my hosting requirements and bandwidth expenses much.  A site that currently has no revenue stream but a big expense isn’t a long term solution if you’re looking to call this your job.

Now a lot of this traffic is again robots.  The site has about 400 registered users in the last week, even some of these are likely bots…but if 10% is human thats good enough for me.  Google ranks a site based on a combination of 200 factors and one is traffic so I’ll accept the traffic boom for now.  So Google Analytics metrics are the stricter of these and only reflect visitors to the site that trigger Javascript.

Google Analytics Traffic Of Ultimate SEO

Google Analytics Traffic Of Ultimate SEO

Even with these stringent requirements, and also with it not necessarily seeing all traffic due to Cloudflare we have 574% more users than last month.  The sites bounce rate or a metric used to discern visitors interest in the site shows a robust 15% bounce.  That number is so good I reviewed it and it appears valid.  I have software that records a video of each users experience and can watch folks clicking around and they are clicking around.  That plugin also warned me that as a free user I was maxing out the limit of concurrent recordings.

Future SEO Efforts

So whats next?  I think I have delivered the traffic, I’ve built a baseline of content and made it technically scaleable and agnostic.  Its all now a matter of building a niche audience that feels engaged and ranking keywords in Google Search.  I’ll check back in a month with how the experiment goals.  I’ve been working to build up SEO Tools both onsite and lists of other sites tools.

Feel free to message with questions and as this progresses of course the How and Whys will be posts on that site and this as I have time.
