I got a couple of major sites in a specific niche. I notice that on a weekly basis, a number of domains drop that contain the niche root word plus a keyword - e.g.,,, etc. The thing is a lot of these domains are like 7 - 10+ years old, and some have had content on them..

I was thinking of snagging a handful of these and perhaps dropping them on some cheap hosting accounts on different IP's with a handful of keyword related content and backlinks to my larger sites.

Worth doing or any other suggestions?..

After some more searches came up with this thread:.

BUY used Domains... If you're going to start a new site..

Good info smaxor. I picked up about 8 of them today. A few of them I just 301'd to my current sites. A few others I may save for Datapresser...

Is there any tool that makes sure that these domains are totally clean? Not banned / penalized / de-ranked?..

Comment #2

No tools. Like banging an old whore without a rubber. Getting some traffic on the redirects so far ...

Comment #3

But I recently dropped a casino domain I had because when I check the serps the site came up as on list of worst internet casinos.I never developed site just parked for year...but obviously the domain formerly had a crummy casino on it.So I figured why bother with if you check the search results and the wayback machine results you can get a lot of clues as to what kind of "neighborhood" the domain lived in..

I have found some domains that are unregistered but, according to, they had sites on them at one time or another dating all the way back to 2001..

My newb question is, do these names lose any of their age authority because they have been dropped and are currently unregistered? or would really the only thing that would be lost is pagerank?..

I've had some luck registering domains with a history and links in the past. googlebot came hard and heavy and indexed most everything in short time without any linkbuilding on my part..

I didn't measure any bump in the SERPs though so your guess is as good as mine there...

Do you think a domain is worth regging if it has an 7 year history, but only 3 backlinks? Any idea on the weight of age vs. backlinks?.

Btw, I would use these domains to push juice to an already established site that jumps between the first page and second page for my main term. Want to get some juice to it and keep it on the front page. Any thoughts?..

Aged backlinks are much greater than plain age..

3 good quality backlinks that have been around for all 7 years would be well worth it and would probably give you enough of a bump to stay on page 1. 3 backlinks from shitty directories are not.

It's pretty easy to get in so don't go just by that. You have to use common sense and good judgement with this as there's no real rule to go by...
