Buy Old Trusted DMOZ Listed Domains & Sites for $8

Oct 1st

Justin Laing recently emailed me to let me know about his SEO sitefinder tool, which uses the ODP and the Internet Archive to find DMOZ listed websites that have not been updated in a while.

Domain Tools also allows you to find expiring domains that will be up at auction soon. You can view their top picks or use the right rail filters on that page to search for DMOZ and Yahoo! Directory listed domains.

Free tools such as DropScout allow you to find expiring high PageRank domains.

You can also look at TDNam for expiring domains, and either use software to filter through those OR sort the results by bids and prices. Some of the domains with many bidders are pure play domainers, but others are old trustworthy sites in need of a good loving owner.

I managed to score a related PR5 7 year old domain with dropscout today thanks to your article :), all for $9!

Double check their pagerank. Most fake them.

BTW- Nice title for the post, Aaron. :)

You really have to manually analyze the linkage data to ensure you are not seeing bogus link data. And I have seen some cases where the PageRank was stripped, so make sure you can afford to risk it if you are bidding against the big boys on a $10,000+ domain.

I'm considering doing this we have been submitting our site to dmoz for five years and are the largest site in out of any that are listed. No luck. I can't even get a response from someone there acknowledging our submission.

I spend a couple hours at both DropScout and Domain tools yesterday. DropScout is a nice resource, but you have to check the PR - as Aaron said, many are fake.

But I am still jealous of BradMcA - nice score. I camping on one domain, but haven't managed to get anything yet.

hi,

i'm really new to seo but i like the topic. i've looked around in dropscout but if the domain isn't grabbed it is not available. so how could i check the pr of a deleted domain?

thanks in advance.

Aaron, this looks fantastic but the script is now now working. The guy is making it available for anyone to run at the link (it looks like at least).

Have you considered installing the script here and making it available to use?
