Watch Hayden Miyamoto Find 1 Clean Expired Domain Per Minute

As I have mentioned several times (about 4 different posts) on this site a person I have learned a lot from is Hayden Miyamoto from NoHatDigital.com (formerly NoHatSEO.com). Today I have a unique  opportunity to feature a guest post from him on how him and his team go about SPAM checking expired domains.

After finding and selling thousands of expired domains/building PBN’s I know this is the step in the process where skill and experience pays off. It is the toughest skill to teach to my VA’s and he has an additional checks that my SPAM checking process does not include.

In this post Hayden will show…

  • A walk through one of his in-house pieces of software that he uses to find 1 clean domain per minute for his Private Blog Network.
  • Some spam checking and PBN site setup tips
  • An opportunity to ask Hayden and his partner Greg any PBN/expired domain-related questions in the comments
  • A reader giveaway > your chance to secure 72 hours access to Hayden’s in-house tool!

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Hayden and his background, he is a serial entrepreneur, having founded NoHatMedia, RankHero and DomainJawa, among other businesses.

He is perhaps best known online for continually being on the cutting edge of SEO and internet marketing and for bringing the use of Expired Domains to the forefront of SEO tactics.

 

Now it’s over to Hayden!

I’ve been following Jon for a while now and he has an impressive list of expired domain/PBN-based service offerings for the AuthorityWebsiteIncome.com community, so I reached out to offer an inside look into one of my in-house tools that significantly reduces the time it takes to find clean expired domains because I think it can be of value to many of you.

In fact, the tool I am about to demonstrate is very simple for a programmer to put together and my aim is to demonstrate how the tool works so that you can re-create something similar for personal use.

 

 

Key Takeaways From the Video

Tips on quickly identifying spam:

While you’re browsing through domains, you can get a pretty good ideas if they look spammy or not just by their domain names. Too many characters, dashes or numbers thrown in there are signs of spam. Avoid domains like “CheapestLouisVuittonShoesFor Women.net” at all cost!

Anchor Cloud:

The anchor cloud is a culmination of all the anchors that have been used to link back to the site. If you see anchors related to poker, pills, porn, or foreign links, that’s spam, so move on.

WWW vs Non WWW:

Using OSE (Open Site Explorer) you want to make sure and note which version has the best metrics for you to be able to launch your domain on. You’d be surprised as to the variations you can find here, so verify both and you’ll be good to go.

Top Pages:

This is a crucial part of launching a site. By checking the Top Pages in Ahrefs (my weapon of choice when it comes to checking backlink profiles for spam), you can see which pages are receiving the most links.

More links = more juice, so you want to either see if you can recreate the already existing page(s) with similar content in order to keep the current links in place OR 301 redirect the Top Pages it to the homepage OR launch your site on a subdomain/page with the best metrics. You do not need to setup your site on the root domain.

Sub-pages/Sub-domains:

Huge indicator of spam here. Many SEO’s pick up expired domains and then exploit it’s sub-pages/sub-domains. Keep an eye out for this when combing through the distribution of links and the pages they point to. Look for sub pages that clearly do not match the former site.

Drops:

Using the WayBackMachine, you need to check for obvious signs of previous de-indexation. I should note here that sites are dropped and picked up all the time, so just because a site may have been recreated, it doesn’t mean it’s spam and can’t be picked up and used as part of your PBN.

If you see big snapshot gaps like in the image below, make sure you take a closer look. There is a possibility that the site may have been penalized/de-indexed and that is why it has been dropped.

wbm-gaps

I steer clear of any domains that have been previously setup as a PBN, with my theory being that it is highly likely the domain was let go by an SEO due to it being de-indexed.

 

The Truth About PBNs

PBN links are proven to rank sites and it’s now almost getting to the point of being more un-common than common to find serps that do not have at least one site that is ranking due to PBN links. It has got to a point where you are at a significant disadvantage if you do not have access to PBN links, purely because they are so powerful and so quick to perform from an established PBN.

As someone who has over 1000 PBN sites however, I understand first-hand how time-consuming it can be to setup and maintain a PBN.

Between finding the domains, checking for spam, setting the sites up correctly, searching for unique IP hosting, adding content, and then link building your money sites, there is a ton of work required in setting up a single domain. And the hunt for expired domains is not without danger, given that there is no guarantee that an expired domain you acquire will get indexed, or not get de-indexed for that matter.

It’s for this reason that I have invested in software and tools to help streamline the process, but this is obviously not something that will appeal to everyone given the upfront costs.

 

Your PBN Options

The way I see it, you have four options when it comes to generating PBN links.

1) Do not bother with PBN links, instead favoring other link building tactics

2) Invest the time and resources into building your own PBN. The learning curve here can be steep, so you need to weight up the benefit of investing precious time into developing your own PBN vs utilizing services available to you where you can get access to the links, minus the time or expense of setting an entire network up.

3) My NoHatDigital.com team and I have recently introduced a Links4Life Program, where Internship and Private Training Course graduates are able to submit one or more suitable quality domains to a graduate-only network, and in exchange receive 6 article credits per month, per domain submitted to the network. It saves a ton of time and cost for our graduates and is a significant benefit to going through our training courses.

4) The final option is to buy the links either at auction, or through Jon’s PBN service. And really, if you are in a position where you either struggle to find expired domains or build a network, or if you are working part-time online with limited hours to work on your online projects, quite often just paying for a done-for-you network makes a ton of sense.

Yikes. Great post. It’s crazy how much effort go into building a proper PBN.

I also vouch for Hayden’s recommendation to use Jon’s Done For You PBNs. It’s tough to build sites with a full time job. So using Jon’s service has been a huge time saver. It’s the best way to outsource your link building while still maintaining ownership of the links.

    Jon Haver says August 13, 2014

    Thanks Jason…glad you are happy with the service.

    A lot does go into building a PBN correctly and there really is no way to do it “cheap” and with quality.

    Link4Life from NoHatMedia looks like a great way to extend the size of anyone’s network at low cost…but control does get given up a bit.

Hey Jon, thanks for allowing this guest post and of course I will enter the giveaway 🙂

I’m just trying to rank my first site using a seven-site PBN I built for this purpose. Maybe there will be errors from my site (I already spotted one) but maybe there’l be success also.

So I’m always eager to learn from other SEOs and also share my progress with others on my own site. Thanks for the tips, I’ll see how it works out in the near future!

If a domain was redirected before it was dropped, it is worth registering it if it still has some good links and DA / PA on it?

Any rule or guidelines here

Reply
    Jon Haver says August 13, 2014

    Hi Mark…I used to say if it had been 301 redirected in any circumstance do not buy it.

    However, I have tested it out a few times now with awesome domains and have found that if similar and unique content goes on the domain it will rank well very quickly. So I still say don’t buy if it was 301 redirected for SPAMMY SEO reasons but if it was redirected because the previous owner moved domains and still a bunch of links go to the old domain (the one you can now get) it still holds a lot of value.

Awesome post! I just purchased my third domain for my PBN and I will be writing some content for it shortly. I have built some niche sites already and Im hoping my mini-PBN will help get those ranking soon.

Im also looking into building out some niche sites on an expired domain if I can find it in the right niche! Cant wait for the next few months to see how they turn out 🙂

    Hi David

    I have had mixed results with building on an expired domain…sometimes it works well but sometimes it doesn’t work at all. I now try and build on a clean domain but if I find a great, clean and relevant domain I will 301 redirect it to give the site a little SEO boost off the start.

    The NoHatMedia team I think tried building on expired domains for awhile and came to a similar conclusion…but I will let them answer that.

Hey Jon –

Huge value here with Hayden, thanks for putting up this post.

Actually with both of you guys as inspiration, I’m developing systems and getting VAs on board to help me manage things with my site creation and PBN. Having someone to setup each domain, having someone to worry about maintaining each domain, and having someone who can do tech support/trouble shooting type stuff would be great, as I often waste too much time bogged down in things like hosting issues (particularly with the $1 hosts).

Thanks for the post Jon and thanks for sharing your tool Hayden. Would love to have access to that, but either way, you’ve provided a ton of info on how to create something similar. Many thanks.

Hi Jon And Hayden,

Your tool looks awesome buddy. People who spends hours checking domains manually know the real value of your tool. Great tool really.

1 question – I have found that indexed domains that have real PR (bought from Auctions) gives better/faster results compare to scrapped ones we re-purpose for PBN.

Have you done such testings? If yes, what are you findings? Would love to know expert’s take on this.

Thanks,
Priyank.

    Greg Nunan says August 13, 2014

    Hey Priyank, we have not closely analyzed/split tested the impact of link building from a network of expired domains that are still indexed when we re-launch vs a network of domains picked up by the crawler that are not indexed when we launch them.

    However, we are testing at great length the use of expired domains that still have indexed pages in Google and launching them as money sites. Nate Tsang, who is heading up the management of our money sites is leading the charge here and we have an experiment case study going to document the findings.

    Without the hard data to back up this statement, I agree with your findings and it is my feeling that aged PBN sites (those that are 4+ months old) and expired domains that are setup as PBN sites with pages still indexed have a better impacted for link building.

    Great question!

    Hi Priyank…I have noticed sites there are currently indexed when purchased generally get indexed faster and rank better. I can’t confirm the impact but imagine the SEO juice passed is passed sooner since the site is indexed faster. I have not noticed a difference in final moves for the sites though(my measurements are not that close though to say definitively).

Hey Jon and Hayden,

How long after the PBN site is launched do you wait to start adding content with links to your money sites or other sites you sell to? How many posts without outbound links should it have before linking out?

Thanks for the insights,

    Jon Haver says August 13, 2014

    Hi Mike

    I don’t have any restriction to wait…except when I buy a domain I think is “questionable” (tons of good links but also signs of some bad links). When I get a questionable domain I wait until it has been indexed and see how Google is “treating” the site.

    For most domains I don’t wait since the idea is the links will be as natural as possible.

Hi Jon, thanks for Haydens insightful PBN posting.
I have 2 questions to Hayden,
1. When creating a site for PBN what should i do with WHOIS Privacy? I mean keep it on with fake details or keep off?
2. Which spider bots are kept blocked from crawling PBN sites?

Reply
    Lynn says August 13, 2014

    Hi Reza,

    The main goal is to not leave a footprint so if all or most of your PBN sites have privacy, then this is a footprint. Create fake whois info. I always find a real address and use this info for whois as Google has a record of all addresses through Google maps.

    Reply
    Jon Haver says August 13, 2014

    Hi Reza…for me I don’t think hiding from the bots is a good idea as Google can see your code where you said “don’t look at my links here Majestic/Ahrefs” if that is on every site that is linking to your site it would create a footprint and a non-natural/suspicious one. Who except PBN sites would not let Majestic/Ahrefs crawl their sites?

    Reply
      Reza says August 14, 2014

      Thanks Jon and Lynn for the detailed reply.
      So, Jon should i only block search engines bot like Google, Yahoo, Bing? or nothing block at all? I am really confused about this matter.
      One more thing, after creating a PBN site completely should i continue to create backlink again for that site?
      It would greatly appreciated if you tell me what you do after creating a PBN site, which bot you block and do you continue to create backlink for that site?

Nick says August 13, 2014

Nice piece and nice tool! I have just started getting into PBN’s and have been learning different ways . It is time consuming to check each domain you find but what you have built nails it. I wish my programming skills were better so I could try and write & implement my own.

Some questions if I may: What is the difference between scraping for expired domains using xeno and buying from expired auctions?
Also, are the domains you find by scraping also available to find on the auction/registrar sites, or can they be only found by scraping?
If they have a good link profile, why were they not bought when they first expired?

Hope these all make sense.
Many thanks,
Nick

Reply
    Lynn says August 13, 2014

    Hi Nick,

    When you scrape, you can find expired domains not on drop lists. So, these you can buy for the cost of registration. Expired domains on auction are more expensive so most people who have a budget scrape vs. using auctions.

    Most domains you find while scraping are not on current drop lists since they expired in the past.

    If the have a good link profile, they are not purchased when first expired because no one knew about them. Most drop lists have only been around for half a dozen or so years and even drop lists from a few years ago have domains not purchased because few knew about the value of them.

Lloyd Hester says August 13, 2014

Great software. I was wondering do you use all the blogs in the pbn to link to the money site or would you also use them for 2nd tier links?

Also when building second and third tier links to the pbn do you insist all of the content in those sites are unique, hand written, quality work?

Reply
    Jon Haver says August 13, 2014

    Hi Lloyd, I will use a PBN for a second tier link to say a YouTube video or embed the YouTube video but that is not the primary focus of my use of the PBNs. I don’t worry about building links to the PBN sites and yes all content on the PBN is quality hand written articles.

Sharon says August 13, 2014

I have recently started building a PBN. I found that one of the expired domains that I bought had been deindexed by google thanks to spam content. I applied to have the penalty removed and google has done so. Would you still use this domain or forget about it? All checks had turned out good.

Reply
    Lynn says August 13, 2014

    The problem is that if Google removed the penalty they know about you. Meaning if you have other money or pbn sites hooked to that Google account then you have a footprint. So, I would avoid unless your money or pbn site are in a silo Google doesn’t know about.

Hi Jon and Nohat SEO team,

Great post, super good!

My question is about ccTLDs as domains for PNBs;
Let’s say you want to set up a PNB with focus on a particular country. Given equally good link profiles, would you try to get a hold of expired gTLDs (com/net/org/etc..) in the local language, or gTLDs regardless, or localized ccTLDs, or a combination of all? Which ones would power your money sites faster?
Also, if you were to build a PBN with focus on a particular field (e.g. Real Estate), how would it matter whether I use general expired domains (of any kind) VS. expired domains in the Real Estate field?
I hope I have expressed myself correctly, and thanks in advance!
Fredrik.

Hi Jon and Hayden,

Great tool and it will get the attention of every webmaster which has cursed himself of spending hours and hours on checking auction domains which are spammed to death. I can say that this tool will be a hit for sure.

Personally I have a network of PBN domains and they all are from Godaddy Auction, Namejet and some vendors. But the domains which you are buying are de-indexed and yeah they will be indexed ast they are spammed checked, but still will they offer the same value as a indexed auction domain does?

Fyi, can’t wait to get my hand on you tool and buy a minimum of 100 domains… 🙂

Reply
    lynn says August 14, 2014

    Past results indicate the expired domain has just as much value as the auction domain once it is indexed.

    100 domains is a great PBN, lots of work to build out and continually manage!

    That’s why we’ve created a system to manage an intern pbn network, http://www.nohatdigital.com/blog/interested-in-quality-links-for-life/

    It would be good to get domains from Jon and then add them to the Intern network, a lot less hassle.

Once you get a hold of the expired domain, what kind of content will you build it up with: Content related to what the domain used to be about, or to what you need it for?

Steven says August 15, 2014

Hi there,

I have a technical question if you don’t mind. I came up with my own method to scrape and find expired domains and a big concern for me is this: how do you make sure you don’t re-check the same domains over and over again?

For example if you scrape the web for domains that have at least a PR5 link, in my experience you’ll usually end up with the same domains over and over again, which can be a drain on your resources (MOZ API, domain availability etc…).

So do you keep a list of the millions of domains you already checked and filter these out from current lists or do you just ignore this and don’t mind re-checking the same domains multiple times?

Hope that makes sense,
Steve

    Han says August 15, 2014

    Hi Steven, this is Han here, the developer of the Spam Checking tool featured in the video. Congrats on your scraper, hope that’s coming along well.

    I definitely keep a list of all the domains checked, otherwise the duplicate work would waste a ton of resources like you mentioned.

    Doing this in a relational database is feasible but the query times might get out of control if you don’t have indexes set up properly; instead of querying through SQL, I actually keep a record of each domain checked via Redis. This helps prevent unnecessarily long queries to keep DB performance high, while still avoiding duplicate work. Hope that helps!

      Steven says August 16, 2014

      Thanks, that helps a bit.

      Another question I’d like to ask is what tools do you use for bulk PR and domain availability checking. I read on NoHatSeo you recommend Name.com/names and my-addr for bulk PR, but Name.com/names is limited to 1-2,000 domains a time and for me it freezes sometimes, and my-addr can add up costs pretty quickly (I’d like to use it to discover high PR pages that link to expired domains, I don’t actually care about the PR of a ED).

      Thanks!

        lynn says August 16, 2014

        Hi Steven,

        Besides my-addr you can use Netpeak with proxies although I prefer my-addr. Still, we don’t use PR for the most part as the focus is DA.

        For domain availability, we hit the whois servers directly but if you’re looking for a tool, http://www.conity.net/support_e.shtml has a bulk whois checker

Hey Hayden,

I have 40 pbns all hosted all over the placed. I think the question I have is about scale. I find it very difficult to scale finding new expired PBNS, managing them all, etc. Is there something you did to scale it out properly?

Also do you manually post each content to the blog through your pbn or do you have some kind of tool to push out those articles with very specific anchor texts?

Also can’t wait to start the internship!! Super pumped.

    Hayden Miyamoto says August 15, 2014

    Hi David, great to have you on-board with the Internship! Answering your questions:

    1) PBN management is very difficult to manage and that’s a large part of the reason we created a graduate PBN that we manage as a benefit to graduates. We’ve invested in custom software out of necessity and VAs to help manage, but just employing a VA to help manage once you get to the level you’re at is a great way to go. Have all your SOPs documented and train a competent VA to help.

    2) Yes we have an in-house platform to manage posting to PBNs and you’ll see quite a bit of that over the coming weeks in your Internship. But there’s nothing wrong with having well-managed Google docs that and VAs trained on how to link build correctly. The key is leveraging yourself out of as much as possible.

I am looking to launch a french website about construction (home improvement) for people in France who are looking for advise for their home. Where can buy an expired french domain in this niche?

Bytheway: I do not speak French so it is not easy to search and talk to French people.

Thanks.

BR Peter

Hi Peter,

I actually see quite a few French domains on drop lists and when crawling but I don’t recall one specifically in the home niche. You could try more of a brandable domain or one which is more general in nature like a magazine or newspaper.

I would also recommend partnering with someone who speaks French to make the task easier as it is a challenge to spam check domains when you don’t speak the language although I do use Google translate and have been fairly successful.

Hey,

For all those 100’s of domains that you all manage where exactly do you host them.I have seen on many posts that it is ill advised to use seo hosting.Using normal hosting would open you up to duplicate ip addresses.The only option that I see left is one dollar hosting.Those are quite limited and sometimes unreliable.Where or How do you host all your PBN sites?Thanks and that is a wonderful tool.

    True, we also avoid seo hosting. We use normal hosting, look for companies which offer reseller accounts as they often have multiple ip’s. There are a bunch of companies offering hosting so even with a large pbn, you should be able to find enough companies to get unique ips. Really the issue is managing all of the different accounts, not so much finding different ips.

Hey Jon,

I signed up for IXWebHosting a few months ago, and have only been able to get around 8 unique C-block IP addresses for my domains – have you had this problem with them? Any potential workarounds?

Thanks,

Matt

As hosting companies grow, they add more ip addresses so while you may not be able to find different ips now at IX, you may in a month or so. Also, I’ve had success with HostNine where I added an account in a region and then immediately deleted it and added the same account again to get a different IP. I’m not sure why it worked, but for some reason it did.

ive watch Hayden videos before with the xenu software
if a ex-domain website market offers date and PR then it can be done there too..
the most important 2 factor to look is PR ( the reverse ) and date

its like 10 kings, 1 died a long time ago, those 9 kings still know the dead king but the dead king has an additional to the word king which is the DEAD …. there is the clue DEAD a long time ago…
you often saw this but just ignore

I would like to enter the contest and can use the Spam Checker tool being offered if I win as I’m looking to build my first PBN network. It seems extremely labor and time intensive, but I always value the knowledge I gain by doing difficult projects. Thank you for a very informative article and you have a new subscriber.

Such a great article that you’ve written in here.
The only thing that I would like to ask you is that, are PBN sites required to be relevant to the niche?

Thanks
Vikas

I have been working on building PBN’s for a couple of months and have just entered into trying to scrape my own. I have picked up some good info from some of the posts I have read from you guys. Thanks

Hi, I’m interested in your spam checker software, does it use moz spam score, or its own system?
