Finding and Valuing Domains

May 4th

Russ Jones offers tips for finding and valuing domains. His company also offers a free tool which helps you value domains.

If that post didn't frustrate Matt Cutts then surely the post about finding cross site scripting errors probably would :) (via seoblackhat)

WMW recently had a thread about finding expiring domains.

And if you are a blogger who does not want to go buy sites, and would prefer to have everyone link at your site, Philipp Lessen created a survey for how linkable your blog posts are.

If you are trying to find valuable domains you should take a look at www.pool.com. It is a good place for expired domains, but the downside is that people bid on them if more then 1 person wants that domain.

I did want to offer one quick editorial change. While Ryan Allis owns Virante, theGoogleCache and all its posts are by Russ Jones (CTO of Virante) and Jeff Staub (Director of Client Services). In this particular case, the post was by Russ Jones.

Thanks!

No harm done! Thats the fastest correction I have ever seen!

In response to Neil Patel, I believe there is significant question whether expired domains hold much value. While it is possible that existing backlinks may be counted, I believe it is generally accepted that whatever domain-aging algo is used by Google may be reset if a domain expires.
