10 Point Domain Name Analysis Checklist

Nobody wants to pay good money only to end up with a bad domain.

That’s why it’s critical to know how to analyze Aged Domains before you buy so you always know you’re getting what you pay for.

As I mentioned in the last blog post on Buying Domain Names, people selling domains often take to deceptive and evil tactics such as forging high PageRanks, or selling ex-porn or ex-spam websites onto unsuspecting webmasters.

These are Aged Domains that you want to avoid paying your hard-earned money for because they often carry no SEO benefits, OR can even have a negative SEO impact, hurting your chances of ranking well in the search engines!

So that’s why knowing how to analyze domains, and doing your due diligence on any Aged Domain you consider buying (before you buy!), helps you to avoid making a costly mistake.
