Amazing Tips for Acquiring Abandoned Websites
In the real world, if your business doesn't work then you have the option of renting your work
space. While in the online business world, the first few hours are enough to decide your fate. But
you may still stay round the corner to test your destiny.
Such businesses are available at very low prices, still the fact remains of the links that an
abandoned website has acquired so far are still associated with it. This is what keeps us
interested. Though buying someone else's site will seem expensive at first but will be an
investment later because you also get the profit of the links and web traffic of that site as well.
Outdated copyright sites can be found out by typing the following on Google:
“copyright 2010” + your keywords
Apart from the current year you can search for every other year.
The copyright mark is always at the bottom of a website. And if it is old and not updated then it is
confirmed that the website has either given up or wants to close or sell the website. Consequently,
you must keep your site updated so that your customers or partners do not fall into the wrong
Apart from copyright expiration sites there are others that fit the list, like “temporarily down for
maintenance” or “under construction” sites. Check, as to whether, the domain name has expired
or not, if you are looking for a purchase. Because at times, Google erases all data associated with
the website and puts an end to all those inbound links connected to the site. Google clears all
data associated with the site, like the value of incoming links and page rank of the website to nil.
Purchasing links can be handled well if you are alert about it. You should be very careful while
buying links. But, buying links from conventional link brokers should be avoided. These brokers
provide you with sites that are completely unrelated to yours, therefore, of no use to you. Links
that are likely positioned on page templates get you links from each web page of a particular site.
These are known as run-of-site links, easily identified by search engines who also notice the fact
that they are procured from a link broker.
It is always more profitable to receive a single link from a homepage of a site in comparison to
getting numerous links from every sub-page of a site. To make this happen you must get in direct
contact with the website's owner and request him/her to place your link either on their homepage
or on one of their highly visited sub-pages. What investment you do for link popularity purposes
will bear the fruit in the form of boosting website traffic.
In order to get good results, you need to keep the paid links online for first 2-3 months to see
their impact on your results. As search engine optimization services bear fruit in a span of six to
seven months. The only drawback of buying links is that you can later counterbalance them by
selling links from your page after you have acquired a decent, top pagerank.
Paying for links with less than a page rank of 3 is of no use. As several small links can do no harm
to your site, nor are they going to do enough to get you good and considerable web traffic if you
pay them. While obtaining only one link from a site with a PageRank of 7 is much more valuable,
especially, if it is topic specific it is worth more than getting links from sites with a PageRank of 1
or 2. Websites with low pagerank are not worth buying.
Purchasing Ads and newsletters
Buying newsletter links is a good idea. While majority of website owners send out newsletters to
their subscribers on weekly or monthly basis, most websites that publish these emails also archive
them at the same time. With this, you stand a chance to get two useful links: one from sending
the newsletter and another is a permanent link from the archived side of the newsletter that
matures with time.
It has been known that Google uses a time filter to determine new links, in order to reduce the
boost people witness from purchasing links. Thus, meaning that your link needs to be active
online for a couple months to acquire its full advantages.
If by chance, you buy an expensive link that has a top-notch rank on the homepage of a well
known site then you will have to keep on paying for that link as long as you want it to be online.
In comparison, it is beneficial to buy links in newsletters, as they get archived soon and you don't
even need to pay for them to be online. Plus, they evolve with time that increases their estimate.
Trying to get links from .edu and .gov sites
After some observation by website owners and SEO workers about Google preferring or valuing
links from .gov and .edu top level domains (TLDs), these links are only made available to
governmental or accredited educational sites only. This makes it next to impossible for other sites
to obtain these domains. Google surely values these domains more as links from these domains
are not easy to maneuver.
Among the two unattainable domains mentioned, .edu offers more opportunities. And if you've got
the talent and smartness to get either of these domains, preferably .edu, it will open a host of
opportunities for your business.
Meanwhile, if your business offers services which can be provided to schools and colleges then you
stand a chance to exchange links with educational sites. Web designers and search engine
optimizers are what we need to get links from these domains, but many business companies
which serve products and expertise benefiting schools, can also get links in return.
Educational sites provide their students web space on their website. Likewise, there are thousands
of pages of these kinds. And if you end up getting a link from any one of them, it is going to be
profitable. Not neglecting the fact that most of these links can help in the augmentation of your
website's search engine rankings. The school site later provides these links to the students as an
