In SEO, forever we’ve been hearing about the power of PBNs (Private Blog Networks) and how they’re the best SEO weapon ever.

Well, all of that is still mostly true BUT finding good quality, relevant domains for your PBNs or PSNs (Private non-blog Site Networks) has gotten more and more expensive over the last couple of years as more individual SEOs and SEO agencies have scrambled  to build their own networks for their clients and/or own sites’ SEO.

In short:

  • There are loads more buyers now for good quality expired domains because they work for SEO, either as repurposed Money Sites or private network SEO link sites
  • Domain auctions are massively time-consuming and the prices are over-inflated
  • Domain dealers need to put a profit markup on their domain inventory
  • Many available domains have been spammed to death and back – twice
  • Finding domains very relevant for your niche is also very time-consuming

The fundamental problem with these kinds of expired domains – and this is a CRUCIAL thing to understand – is that, on the whole, buying these kinds of domains sucks and is a loser’s game.


Simply because someone or some company ALREADY owns them. Yes, these domains are always going to cost more because a company or person ALREADY owns them.


Well, over the 20+ year life of the Web, hundreds of millions of websites, many with great backlinks from the highest authority sites in the world, no longer have owners.

The backlinks & domain STILL exist but the websites do not.

The people, companies or associations that once owned those domains/sites went bankrupt, lost interest, moved on to other projects – who knows?

And many of these expired domains have phenomenal backlinks (think CNN or the ‘CNNs’ of your niche/s) and NOBODY currently owns them.

Why is that so important?

Because IF you can find them, you can buy them for just the price of registration e.g. $7-$12 depending on the domain extension and where you buy it. And not spend hundreds of dollars on each good domain any more.

It used to be a time-consuming and frustrating task to use software like Screaming Frog or Xenu to try to find these domains and these tools were NOT custom built for this job.

Unlike my new SEO software: Bluechip Backlinks.

With Bluechip Backlinks software. you can potentially:

  • Find expired domains that your top 20 SERP competitors link to
  • Find expired domains that the best sites linking to your top 20 SERP competitors
  • Check any site in your niche or linking to any site in your niche for links to expired domains that nobody currently owns
  • Completely REBUILD any site from records (if they have records) based on how it used to look – this software does the rebuilding for you plus strips out all Wayback Machine code, cleans up the link structure so that most/all links work and extracts all available pages from (UNLIMITED number of rebuilds for Bluechip Backlinks users)
  • Search any site for unowned expired domains by keyword for extra relevance
  • Allows all of the above in a queue so it keeps working while you sleep
  • All of the computing power from new 12-core, high end servers is at our end, not your computer

But do these kinds of expired domains work for SEO?

What Has 10x+ Better ROI Than Content Marketing? This.

Straight from the secret research labs inside SEO Traffic Hacks:

My cat: Sasha

‘Content Marketing’ has been all the rage for a while through whitehat venues like who keep banging the ‘quality content’ drum but let’s look at a few negatives of Content Marketing before we get into another type of marketing that destroys it on ROI:

If you do get serious about Content Marketing, you can use free tools like and (click on “Social Media Analysis”-“Page Level Results”) to instantly find out what content is ALREADY being virally shared the most and they may give you spinoff ideas.

Plus don’t forget to:

  • Build into your article some (good) references to specific people or tools in your niche and fire them a quick email after the content goes live as they may promote it to their audience. They may find it naturally anyway with Google Alerts or Talkwalker and possibly link to it but email them anyway.
  • When/if some traffic comes, DO use retargeting/remarketing (I currently use and it’s WAY simpler than Google AdWords) to build a 2nd ‘list’ to keep your OFFERS in front of the most distracted, unfocused population in human history.
  • DO also use social content locking to get some access to your visitors’ FB friends. FB are clamping down on locked/gated content, especially on FB and probably elsewhere so get moving.
  • DO use offer driven action popups. I currently use and it’s a fantastic service with Web 3.0 style popups like this:
  • If you think popups are tacky, the next site your visitors go to won’t and guess who’ll get the money? Popups work, whether you love them or hate them.
  • DO promote your ‘quality content’ to as many relevant LinkedIn groups as possible once it’s published.
  • DO try to build a FB group around your site – if relevant for your niche.

Anyways, enough about Content Marketing, let’s get on to what’s WAY better than it (any semantics experts who want to argue that this is a type of Content Marketing can leave now).

So what’s better than Content Marketing?

Here are 3 clues:


The type of marketing I’m talking about here is Event Marketing, or more accurately, Ongoing Event Marketing, the type where your visitors get in the habit of returning to your site/event to see what’s happened since they last visited.

Try achieving that with a standalone infographic.

This is where your create some kind of ongoing experiment like this guy who launched a career from eating fast food in a compelling test:

For example, in SEO/IM, my WF thread there is still top 10 all time most viewed on WF SEO forum I think, maybe top 20 and I still get emails about it, 5 YEARS LATER! By comparison, my normal posts attracted hundreds of views and a few replies whereas the live ‘event’ has had almost 170,000 views and 1100+ replies. That’s not bragging but shows the potential power of this type of marketing:

And there are other live experiments on this blog that have also attracted a lot of interest.

But, and there’s always a but, keep these factors in mind with your (online) Event Marketing (which may not work for all niches of course):

  • Relevancy is crucial: use buzzsumo and quicksprout above for experiment/event ideas.
  • Expect things to screw up, it’s normal and expected, share that with your audience.
  • Try to update your event as much as possible, returning visitors do want to see progress and developments.
  • Set a realistic timeframe e.g. 30/60 days, to [a] achieve results hopefully, and [b] build the habit of returning to your site for visitors.

Have a good day there and see you inside SEO Traffic Hacks with hundreds of other experienced SEOs.

5 Quick Free New SEO Hacks For Monday September 8 2014

1. Do NOT trust Google’s site: and info: search operators – they’re showing very inconsistent and funky readings right now.

You may, for example, assume that a PBN blog of yours has been deindexed (Google has been vicious on that lately) when you’re just getting unreliable readings and the site is fine.

Clear your cache, use VPNs and check over a few days.

Like to get my complete 2015 SEO resources list – the exact tools & services I use every day in my SEO business – click here to get the PDF now.

If the blog is deindexed, you may still benefit rankings-wise from ‘link echoes’ or ‘ghost links‘ – not that you want to rely too heavily on that occasional phenomenon.

2. SHOCK: Google Lied – HTTPS Doesn’t Boost Rankings [Study]

or at least not enough to bother with at the moment, so many better things you can focus on with your site e.g. decent silo structure:

3. YouTube Keyword Tool Scrapped

Another useful service gets canned by Google (I’m still annoyed about keyword data being encrypted).


and from Google:

“The YouTube ads keyword tool will be disabled on September 1st. We recommend using Display Planner in AdWords for AdWords for video keyword suggestions.”

4. Looking for proven ‘hot’ content ideas, try these 2 sites:

[a] (click on ‘Social Media Analysis’ after you enter the URL/s of heavyweights in your niche) – this pic is from an check – but don’t just look at WHAT was shared but HOW the site motivated readers to share that content:

5. Don’t know what parasite page type is the current Google darling?

These rankings across multiple niches were achieved with 50 PBN posts and were ranking within a few days:

I’m not guaranteeing that every single new Facebook page will rank with a little SEO effort but they are working much better than anything else at the moment.

Does Google Have A New Anti-SEO Weapon – The ‘4 Week Factor’?

[OFF TOPIC] Notice how fast my blog here is? That’s because it’s hosted on Traffic Planet Hosting (50% my company), probably the fastest WordPress hosting in the world and very reasonably priced too.

As reported over on BHW, it looks like Google have secretly embedded a new anti-SEO weapon into the Panda 4/Payday Loan update (around May 15-18).

You can read the relevant BHW threads here:

Anyone Noticing Rankings Taking Much Longer Than Usual?

Like to get my complete 2015 SEO resources list – the exact tools & services I use every day in my SEO business – click here to get the PDF now.

To summarise, it looks like trying to a rank a new site after the last update will hit a filter that stops it from ranking on Page 1 for about a month – regardless of the quality, quantity or type of links thrown at that new site. That does track with my latest test results here too.

One BHWer reported the same with aged domains.

If that filter is running now (my ongoing testing suggests that it is active), it raises a bunch of interesting questions:

  1. Are all Parasite Pages affected by the filter, given that they are new pages but on long established sites? Early reports say that Parasite Pages have the same problem.
  2. Is Google willing to ignore genuinely viral new pages (less likely) and sites (more likely) for at least a month in its search results?
  3. What happens after the 4 week filter period expires – is it business as usual then or not?
  4. Is this filter more about psychological mind games against SEOs to drive them out (like the painful process of link disavowal and recon requests)?
  5. Is it a permanent change or just a temporary experiment?

It may just be that more patience will need to be factored into our future SEO work – report your experiences with this possible new filter by commenting below thanks.
