I always ask myself a question when I sit and scan for domain names. What are the most important “metrics” I should look for when I decide to purchase a domain name.
If you have ever sat and filtered for domain names, then you know how HUGE the expired domain name lists could be.
And if you aren’t using filters to clean up your lists I have NO idea how you do it.
Seriously, is that even possible?
Ok so this blog post is to get your take on this topic.
Personally, there are a few filters I use when I look for expired domains. By the way, the tool that I use every day is ExpiredDomains.net. It’s free, it’s awesome and it’s free.
Some of the metrics I look for when scanning for expired domain are:
- Search Volume
- TLD’s registered
That’s about it.
I read some people only like to look at AGED domains but I never wanted to put this into my filter because I think by doing this you can leave out some gems. For example, I was able to sell a domain name for a few hundred bucks that had an age of 2015 (sold it in 2016).
So, the domain name wasn’t old at all but still fetched some cash.
