Title: Introducing MyDomainStats! (Special Sneak Preview)
Post by: Josh Spaulding 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.

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

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.

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.  :)
Title: Re: Introducing MyDomainStats! (Special Sneak Preview)
Post by: edseward on May 05, 2014, 05:50:35 PM
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.
Title: Re: Introducing MyDomainStats! (Special Sneak Preview)

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.

Hi

It is interesting, but I would like to see a little more than is shown in this video ...

Rather concerning in this video is that the age column doesn't seem to be displaying any info ... yet when I checked a domain or two (from the video) manually then seoquake easily displays that information

I'll look forward to seeing the next video and see if it 'tickles my fancy'

Thanks for the feedback everybody. I already have plans to add in more advanced filtering options. I already have the ahrefs ranking data (their version of PageRank) so that's an easy column to add.

I'm reading over all the comments and taking notes. Thanks again for letting me know what you want to see.

This is just about the most exciting IM product (as described) that I have seen in a long time.

If I understood it correctly, Add Domains will allow me to type in a domain that I hear about elsewhere and get the stats here. Because I've been wanting and looking for that one feature more than anything, it alone is almost worth getting the service.

However, without some essential items that were not demonstrated in the video, Add Domains would need to be in your competitors' software for this service to be close to THE Domain Evaluation killer app. The most important not-shown factors for me are Domain Authority, Page Authority, Trust Flow, and Citation Flow.

Social Signals and Link Profile with relevancy are great inclusions. Another needed factor to put in is Number of Times Dropped/Transferred. Adding as many registrars and domain suppliers would be super.

Because it is nearly essential, I'm sure the ability to pre-set our own filters/limits for each column, like Minimum Domain Age, is already in the works. This also makes it so factors not included in the final Score are still easily "factored" into that score. As an example, if I set the age to be a minimum of 2 years and sort by Score, then all the Green Light scores will de facto include 2 or more years.

When adding Hover Tips, don't drop the separate page of Definitions.

I read all the comments. Wow, do we want it all! I guess I'll be the first to add a "One time payment of $27".  ;)

Thanks, guys.

I believe many of that will be added. This was just an initial sneak peak. We'll also be releasing a similar tool in the future that is more SEO related... compare your domain with your competitors to see what you can do to get an edge on them. MyDomainStats though, is more tailored to those looking to find golden nuggets in the expired domain lists and domain auctions.

Post by: alba56 on May 06, 2014, 08:39:48 AM
This sounds excellent but I need to say so many things which might keep the price down but as I know all the points raised re DA/PA which must be in there will be noted and added I can only pray that I can afford this when it comes out. The SEO competition analysis one sounds great as well so lets see if we can get discount for both.

Very interesting if this one will be on par with RegisterCompass or even better...
Title: Re: Introducing MyDomainStats! (Special Sneak Preview)
Post by: larajf on May 06, 2014, 01:27:28 PM
I paid for registercompass for a few months but was frustrated with the searching.
I like that I can see all domains expiring since it gives me a chance to get creative. But it would be nice to do searches for keywords related to domains….just a simple grep…does the keyword show up in the domain, etc.
I'm definitely looking forward to playing with this when it's live  ;D

Having just spent half an hour surfing through a site that lists expired domains with their backlinks and referring domains, etc, I don't envy you trying to create an algorithm that (presumably) removes all the references to sites offering drugs of a personal nature, services of a personal nature, the sites that I wouldn't touch with a barge pole soaked in disinfectant, the sites that offer obviously fake designer products, such as shoes, bags and clothing, the sites with odd numbers and references to possible subjects that may not be what I might think, sites that have more referring domains than the number of backlinks coming from them ..... etc, etc and I only got through about 10 pages and those had been filtered to remove fake PR and unsure PR! It also seems a difficult job just to even assign some of the sites to particular niches, such as exercise or weightloss. It certainly will be interesting to see what you come up with. :)

Post by: lexscripta on May 13, 2014, 12:16:36 PM
4000 domains doesnt seem like a lot to look through, or maybe I am missing something. I have often had to check multiple sites for expiring domains because often different sites offer different domains. Just saying that any software needs to pull from more than one pool of expiring domains. The software should do a good job of locating All expiring domains from as many sources as possible.

Any updates on this I for one am desperate to cut down on the time I search and filter, just couple days ago was going to check out two domains by the time i had rejected the first one the second was gone so I guess I checked the wrong one first. Have just had an e mail about Instant domain sniper from Peter Garety re tool from Richard Fairbairn? Have not checked it out but would love to hear from you JL as I know your tools are good and very reliable and of course stand the test of time. More than happy to be a tester?

Unfortunately the level of interest in the tool was very limited, so we shelved the project.
