    Thanks for your reply guys. Based on your notes that domain seems like a good buy.

    If I will buy this domain, or buy a new one, will it make a difference in SEO terms? SERP terms? I guess what I'm trying to ask is if in Google's eyes a new registered domain or an expired domain has the same "weight" ?

    There are existing domain sellers that already do this. www.swaydomains.com for instance if it's all a bit much work.
    Sway Domains....where you dont get to see the name of what your buying until after you pay for it...hmmm..

      I'm not a fan of cloaking like that either. To some it mustn't matter.

    Expired domains are a thing of the past man.. the 'next generation' involves far more advanced systems. Your thinking 2002ish when you need to be thinking 2016ish.

    I thought that under the new Google update that domain names do not mean anything to Google anymore and EMD will be penalized?

    The site name will have more to do with Google ranking than domain name.

    Did I misunderstand the update?

    I wouldn't do that anymore. As some people said, it is a past thing, now I would focus on other systems to earn money online. Create a page, post quality contents, promote it on social networks, use Ads and build mailing lists. This is the least you can do even if you decide to buy an expired domain, you should put something in it to increase traffic and reach people who may want to buy it.

      While I agree with the others in that EMD do not bring traffic anymore, it is incorrect that you will be penalized for EMD domains. These days, all domains are equal in Google's eyes.

      BUT, while that is true in Google's eyes, it isn't true to a human's eyes. BlackFriday.com is ALWAYS going to seem more authoritative to a human than BestBlackFridaySales.net.

      The best advice is what Maxweb gave: "Create a page, post quality contents, promote it on social networks, use Ads and build mailing lists."

      And if you have an EMD, then that's the icing on the cake.

    The key is both knowing what domains to buy, and how they're going to sell.

    The best way to make money with domains isn't just buying them, but also where you offer them, and making sure they go to the most targeted customer.

    For example, if you can offer the perfect architecture name to someone interested in architecture, just owning the domain vs. focusing your marketing is going to make a world of difference, and mean the difference between many sales and no sales.

    Hello directi

    Buy domains and resell them a few dollars to a few hundred dollars and up, is a good business, as long as you know how to choose the "perfect.domain" name and where to sell it.

    While buying an expired domain, you should also check the number of backlinks the domain has.

    Hello friends, I am also new about buying expired domains. Can anyone please suggest me what is the benefit to buying expired domain ?
  • Profile picture of the author RockStarMarketing
    directi - very good question man... history is everything! At least for buying expired domains. To be confident & not risk getting the ol' Google slap down the line, you really have to look into every aspect of that domain's past. Be sure to check: Moz stats, Majestic stats, Wayback snapshots, SPAM, geo location history & keyword history.

    That can take a while, but if you want to be sure, it's the only way to go. You could save time & make sure you do it well if you use a domain crawler that finds expired domains for you, grabs you all their info & even lets you rebuild the archives. That what I do - doing it manually just takes too damn long.
