    Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure that once a domain expires and gets dropped back into the ICANN pool of available domains, the backlinks affiliated with it disappear.

    I'm speaking from experience... Long story short, one of my first websites I ran for a few years, built up tons of back links. I didn't have time for the site anymore so I let the domain expire. About a year later I decided I'd try it again. All the back links were gone.

    I suppose the secret may be to grab a domain immediately after it expires. I know some people (before a number of notable Google algorithm updates) used to make a killing buying expired, high PR domains.

    Yep grab domains as soon as it expires and you will always get some from expireddomains.net, for the quality of the backlinks use something like ahrefs

    ^ above user actually it has 24-48 hours till they drop it on available domains.

    24-48 hours is the time frame given to the owners of those accounts or better yet Domain seekers to buy the domain and get the full traffic available.

    That's why flipping domains is a business.

    People have tools to track out expiring domains then buying them out as soon as they expire then keep up their records (traffic records / rankings / backlinks) then flipping them out with a small investment to large profit.

      Expired domain names work if you grab them quickly.

      I just grabbed an expired domain name today with 7,000 plus backlinks, created a site, and received 300 unique visitors with 3 hours. Not to shabby.

      Be careful buying any of these domains. many of the PR and backlink numbers are incorrect. Check them out through Majesticseo.com and checkpagerank.net or some other verification method of your choice. But I would recommend using at least those two at the very minimum. Or be disappointed.

        Hey TImepears, Thanks for sharing about how to identify genuine sites. Can you please add some points in it?

          For trust factor and citation you need to go for anything with at least 10 in each. Hard to say on back links, but more is always better. Check the PR etc of some or most of the back links as best as you can.

          That is about the best I can say as I am no expert on this, but I have picked up a few hints from a couple of the Warriors here who know their stuff.

    Does traffic mean anything on expiring domains?

    I have been looking at GoDaddy Auctions for expiring/expired domains. There are many available domains monthly traffic of 60,000+.

    Questions:
    1. Wouldn't one of these expiring domains with traffic in the tens of thousands be an ideal purchase to develop into an affiliate page targeting that URL niche?
    2. Wouldn't traffic be more important than PR or backlinks if the goal is to turn the domain into an affiliate page selling products targeting the niche of the URL?
    3. Can traffic be falsified for an expiring domain for sale?
    Or does traffic go away once the domain expires.

    ExpiredDomains.net works pretty well. You want to filter the search results for maybe at least Page 2 page rank and 100 backlinks minimum.

    Don't pay extra for the links - good or bad. Those aren't going to do you any long term good, if any good at all. I think you should rather look at the overall brandability.

      If the links are good they will do you good. That's why you need to do some research when buying old domains.

      Backlinks do not disappear. A backlink only goes away if the webmaster who created it removes it. That may happen for some contextual links or blogrolls on active websites but any forum profiles, blog comments, etc will remain.

      If you find backlinks to inner pages you can use them by recreating a page with the same url or using a 404 plugin to redirect.

    I use registercompass to find domains. I then check in majesticseo and ahrefs to see the backlink profile and anchor text used. These tools make it quite easy to avoid anything spammy, that might have been used for a questionable site
