Our authority domains are high quality expired domains with excellent metrics and history. They were never spammed or redirected to another URL. They have high quality backlinks from natural sources and were not previously owned by SEOs.
Unlike many other domain providers we don’t just go on the metrics of a domain from the outside, instead we hand check every element of the domain to ensure it’s safety and quality which is very time consuming. Typically 1% of the expired domains we check pass our strict guidelines for resale which consist of:
Moz PA 30+ (We only sell lower if there is a decent sum of live links indexed in ahrefs that are not shown in Moz)
- Check multiple archive dates for previous spam (90% of the domains we hand check with strong metrics have been spammed in the past and won’t make it onto our list, the remaining 9% fall short for 1 or more of the above points
The above may seem excessive to others but this is our personal criteria for domains that make it into our PBNs and they have stood the test of time, If we wouldn’t personally use the domain we won’t sell it.
We would like to demonstrate on some examples the kind of domains we locate and list to be used in a Private Blog Network (PBN):
URL: www.kpea.org Metrics: PA = 31; DA = 17; CF =21; TF = 25; BL = 147; DL = 11 (DA and PA acc. to OSE; CF and TF acc. to Majestic Seo; BL and DL acc. to ahrefs.com) Archive.org history and MajestiSeo metrics:
URL: www.eahatx.org Metrics: PA = 32; DA = 19; CF = 24; TF = 29; BL = 182; DL = 19 (DA and PA acc. to OSE; CF and TF acc. to Majestic Seo; BL and DL acc. to ahrefs.com) Archive.org history and MajesticSeo metrics:
URL: www.flightsimtoolkit.co.uk Metrics: PA = 30; DA = 17; CF = 25; TF = 24; BL = 184; DL = 19 (DA and PA acc. to OSE; CF and TF acc. to Majestic Seo; BL and DL acc. to ahrefs.com) Archive.org history and MajesticSeo metrics:
Archive.org history and MajesticSeo metrics and ahrefs.com showing links from Wikipedia, Yahoo and Gigablast:
Some of our authority domains may have lower metrics, but we only sell them if there is a decent sum of links indexed in ahrefs that are not correctly shown in other metrics, like our example below. This domain is safe and can be used as an authority domain in a Private Blog Network (PBN):
Example of an expired domain with falsely wrong TF metric
Archive.org history and MajesticSeo metrics and ahrefs.com back links check show a healthy domain with links from Wikipedia and Answers.com, obviously MajesticSeo has not located links correctly and thus show a wrong TF index count:
