Introducing MyDomainStats! (Special Sneak Preview)
« on: May 05, 2014, 12:24:09 PM »
We've been hard at work (ok, mostly Jon has been :) ) developing a new tool that we believe you are going to love. This new tool, called MyDomainStats, is being designed to make the process of finding golden nuggets within expired domain listings, and domains being auctioned off, a snap!

And today, we would like to give you a sneak preview of this awesome new tool!

Please leave your feedback below the video! Jon loves to get feedback on his tools so he can build them for YOU.

Watch the sneak peak here:

VERY interesting.
1. Will it link i with keyword canine? For instance if you were looking for niches in a particular area, will it look for something similar?
2. Can you get it to search in a particular area, eg. weight loss?

It does not include MOZ rank?

Since PR is updated so infrequently, any tool I use must have DA and PA.

Meg,

its primary purpose is to analyze domains, not keywords, but Jon is going to be adding more features.

Part of the reason to show the sneak peek is to get feedback, so he knows what customers are looking for.

I don't think it will turn into a keyword tool, but I'm sure some of the filtering he's going to be adding will cover at least some of what you ask.

There's a lot more to come with this great new tool. Jon, Josh and I have already had quite a long discussion today about what can go into it, so as they say, watch this space!

I agree with Titan86, Domain Authority and Page Authority figures are an essential part of the decision process and I highly recommend that they not only be included as presented information but they should factor highly in the algorithm that calculates the final score.

Amin mentions the ability to see the link profile which is important as well, does that link profile affect the final score?

Good start

David

looks interesting - especially the color-coded Score (always nice),
but agree with Titan86 and kkharrison -
PR is not adequate - especially as Google could cut off access to this info at any time
(and is updating it way to infrequently lately)

keep us posted!

Since PR is updated so infrequently, any tool I use must have DA and PA.

To be useful to me I would want to know the equivalent of MajesticSEO's Trust Flow and Citation Flow because those values seem to correlate so closely to a good backlink profile.

Also, whether a domain has previously been dropped and how many times, if it has been dropped.

It would particularly be useful to be able to preset a filter on domain age and number of backlinks so that it was possible to set a minimum number of backlinks and minimum domain age before the search for domains starts.

Some people will want to search for just a set keyword to only see domains in their niche.

Finally, as GoDaddy domain auctions are getting so competitive for good domain spotting, is there any possibility that the system could include other large registrars like NameCheap and 1and1?

I think for the short term, being able to add  your own domains from other auctions is sufficient for getting rankings, but adding other services like snapnames and namejet would be greatly appreciated.  We find Trust flow and Page authority to be pretty volatile, but a combination of PR, domain authority, citation flow, and many of the factors mentioned in the video has proven to be a good mix of indicators.

My suggestions include:

  • Identify source of available sites - GoDaddy, Expired Domains, SEDO etc
  • Meaning of Traffic Lights ie range that Red means
  • Explanation of columns by way of Hover Tips per entry rather than being directed to a seperate page where you may get lost in the mass of details

Just initial reactions

Hi, John

A great idea! But I think there are many features you need to add in for this new baby.

I learned lots of domain vetting trick from lots of places. So I just share what I want to see now, hope helps:
1. Pagerank. Even it is zero or none, I would like to know.
2. DA, PA from MOZ
3. CF, TF from Majesticseo
4. Domain's age, registers and drops checker
5. Refering domains and pages from ahref and majesticseo
6. Anchor diversity from ahref and majesticseo
7. Penalty checker. Site and info a domain
8. Spam checker. Check easy spammed anchors, like adult, uggbags, pharmacy and so on.
9. Archive.org history checker. Check history.

Current I do this by using multi-tools and cost me lots of time. I hope you can design a nice tool, so I can do all the work easily in one place.

Regards
Eric

Hi John,

Smarster's list here looks complete, so I ditto it and 2nd Khandoit suggestion
Explanation of columns by way of Hover Tips per entry rather than being directed to a seperate page

Let me know if you need someone to Beta Test it, I am looking for 10 domains right now.  :)

I agree with Eric.  I use several tools and web sites to determine which aged domains I buy.  It would be nice to have one tool that incorporated everything in it.  However i suspect that is too much to ask for one tool.

items 5 and 6 are very important to me, once a domain passes all the other checks.

I have used a number of online and purchased tools and they all fall short in one way or another.  This one looks very impressive for saving time and making sure you are not forgetting to check something.

Input for the algorithm:
I would put the number and the quality of backlinks first/highest in the equation.  Unfortunately, I suspect that might be the hardest thing to check just with software.  Even PA and DA do not seem to always be calculated correctly.  I have seen some high or low that you can tell should be the opposite.  What I mean is although it is usually a strong indicator you cannot just take it at face value.  Also PA and DA are from the MOZ created algo so it naturally has some opinion built into it.  They can't possibly be perfect in understanding or engineering a way to calculate Google's every precise algo factor.

I don't think PR factors as strongly as even a year ago.  Side note:I purchased a PR 3 a long time ago and all I did was build a home page as a placeholder until I could build it out.  I put the Digilink Doctor plugin on it to keep the backlinks that used to go to hundreds of older/non-existent posts.  I do this to preserve and redirect the links to the home page.  At the last update it stayed at PR 3 even though it is just one page.  ( I am not suggesting this is a smart thing to do if you are going to use it in a PBN.)

Strongest factors to lowest: IMHO

1. Number and quality of backlinks
    * Source of the backlinks - the higher the number of referring domains the better as long as there are no spammy links
    * A good mix of social links is a real plus now
    * Niche relevancy of backlinks
    * Diversity of anchor text - The more diverse the better.  A strong mixh of varied keyword, LSI type, brand, url variations and generic words like click here is best.  A site that has 1,100 backlinks and a 1000 of those backlinks have the the same keyword anchor text should score negatively in the algo.

2. DA - I like to see the DA over 28 and a MajesticSEO Trust Flow score over 20.  I will go lower on either one if the backlink profile is outstanding.

3. PA

4. Age

5. PR - N/A, -1, and zero 0 would get an automatic red light from me; 1 and above would all get the same weight in the algo and even a high PR would never trump my numbers 1-4 above.

Features I would like to see:  (I could not see all the columns in the video so they might be there already.)

Is the domain a buy now; auction; or make offer?
Show the start and end date of the auction.

Genius factor:
I love the fact that you can input a domain that you want to check.

Final thoughts:
I adjust my personal parameters depending on whether I am looking for a domain that will be a money site or one for a private blog network.  It does look like the filters will be enough to make the search 'purpose specific". 

The domain name itself is almost never a factor when it is for a PBN but makes a big difference when it is for a new main domain.  One thing I have noticed is that if the domain name sounds spammy most likely the links are also spammy and I don't even bother checking those anymore.
