Have you heard of this relatively unknown stealth traffic tactic?
Many niche marketing experts have been using it to create small and
instant incomes every time they penetrate a new niche.
Using this tactic, it takes just a few minutes to switch on instant targeted traffic to your site.
The only cost is the $10 or so that it takes to register a domain name.
The tactic is purchasing expired domain names that have an existing
flow of traffic flowing into them. The amount of traffic could be
anywhere from ten to ten thousand unique visitors per day and this
article will help you understand the basics of purchasing expired
domains, some of the issues involved and the simple business models you
can use to profit from this potent opportunity starting today.
The Expired Domain Free Traffic Loophole
I love loopholes. That’s exactly what buying expired domain names
is – a big traffic loophole. It works because over time a domain has
been built up and a mixture of time, money and know-how have been
ploughed into it. As a result, it draws in a good amount of traffic.
But now, for whatever reason, that domain has expired. Where once
there may have been a thriving website pulling income in from various
sources, it no longer exists. And it’s up for grabs to the first person
who recognizes what a potential goldmine it is.
Some expired domains, the highly valuable ones, have a huge blaze of
traffic flowing into it on a daily basis. This tends to be because the
domain has hundreds, if not thousands of backlinks as well as high
search engine placement. Some are listed in the Yahoo and DMOZ indexes.
This means that if you can isolate domain names with high amounts of
incoming traffic, you've just acquired a living, breathing potential
online business for just a few paltry dollars (the cost of a domain
name). You can then put together a simple model to start earning from
this bustling traffic immediately using a mixture of contextual
advertising, affiliate links and more. You could also find expired
domains that are related to your existing sites and products and
immediately redirect the traffic to your existing business model. There
are certainly no shortage of ways to create positive results using
Why Domain Names Expire
There are many reasons why domain names can sometimes be let go of. Here are a couple of examples:
People move on. They find other business opportunities which they plough themselves into.
The business that had registered and used the domain no longer exists.
How Domains Slip Into Expired Status (And How Long You Have To Wait Before Snapping Them Up)
Domain expiry doesn’t work quite like most people think. A domain
doesn’t just plop out of the previous owners hands on the expiration
date. Instead, once a domain name passes this date, it enters a static
period of 40 days during which the original owner can still re-register
it. After this period, the domain then switches to another phase
(lasting a further 35 days) whereby the owner can still re-register it
(for a significantly higher fee than before). It’s after this period
that the general public can then get their hands on these expired
