Buying expiried domains over new domains?

Hi everyone,

Is it wiser to buy expired domains like 2 - 3 years old than getting new domains?

If i do buy expired domains, how do i know whether that domain is blacklisted by google or something? Can i check the history of the domains from somewhere?

Any help? Thanks :)

One way is to search google
site:www.domain.com
If it doesnt show then its probably been deindexed as it is an older site

Good Expired domains are usually better if you can get one relevant to your niche

rather than going for ones that are expired, I like looking at ones that are about to expire and that people are trying to sell. I go to Godaddy auctions and the Namechep marketplace to find them. I picked up a PR2, 5 year old domain for $7.00 that way about a year ago and used it for one of my ajp sites.

An aged domain will do better when it comes to getting PageRank so it will have SEO benefit. And it's already indexed. Using aged domains also avoids the Google sandbox :)

You could find some domains in the following:

Sedo.

FreshDrop

SnapNames

Digital Point Forum
