FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What Do I Receive With My Order?
We research expired domains and list them on BacklinkBandit.com. You choose the domain(s) you’re interested in based on the metrics listed, add them to the shopping cart and checkout. We then send you the domain name(s) via e-mail. You will then need to register the domain(s) with your preferred registrar.
2. What is An Expired Domain?
An Expired Domain is a domain that was previously owned by someone else. The previous owner failed to renew the domain registration and therefore the domain “Expired”. People fail to renew domains for various reasons such as their business failing, retiring from their business, losing interest in the website or simply being too busy with other aspects of their life.
The best part of these domains? Their backlinks still exist, their trust and authority still exist, and no-one owns them! That’s where we come in to take advantage of their failure to renew the domain registration. We find these juicy domains and disclose them to you. Add some links on these sites and start ranking baby!

DOMAIN COLUMNS EXPLAINED – WHY THEY ARE IMPORTANT!
For all intents and purposes, PageRank is dead. Google might still use it internally but the Toolbar version that is published to the Public hasn’t been updated since 2013. This means that we need to establish other means to determine Trust and Authority. Majestic has done so brilliantly with their trademarked TRUST FLOW factor.
TF (Trust Flow)
Trust Flow is essentially link juice based on the QUALITY of links pointing to a domain.
“Trust Flow, a trademark of Majestic, is a score based on quality, on a scale between 0-100. Majestic collated many trusted seed sites based on a manual review of the web. This process forms the foundation of Majestic Trust Flow. Sites closely linked to a trusted seed site can see higher scores, whereas sites that may have some questionable links would see a much lower score.” ~ Majestic.com
CF (Citation Flow)
Citation Flow is essentially link juice based on the QUANTITY of links pointing to a domain.
“Citation Flow is a trademark of Majestic. Citation Flow is a score between 0-100 which helps to measure the link equity or “power” the website or link carries. Citation flow is used in conjunction with “Trust Flow”. Together the Citation Flow and Trust Flow form the Majestic Flow Metrics algorithm.
Citation Flow represents an evolutionary leap from our old metric – ACRank – and predicts how influential a URL might be based on how many sites link to it. Links are now not all created with equal weight – and because a strong link will have a relatively stronger influence on URLs, Citation Flow is based on stronger, iterative mathematical logic than the old metric of ACRank.” ~ Majestic.com
CF/TF Ratio (Citation to Trust Flow Ratio)
Simply stated, you want a low Citation / Trust Flow Ratio. Preferably a ratio under 1.8. ALL of the domains on our website have a low ratio.
“Using a combination of Citation Flow and Trust Flow, you can get an overall ratio that will allow you to quickly analyse whether a site is trustworthy or not… Citation Flow is link juice and the Trust Flow is how close those links are to trustworthy, authoritative sources.” ~ Majestic.com
“The basics behind why the trust ratio works is because, if the Citation Flow is high and the Trust Flow is low, this means that the website being checked has a lot of link equity (or “juice”), but barely any trust from those links. This usually indicates that the site has gained those links from “spammy” areas of the web as they are not close to authoritative sources.
On the flip side of this, if a site has a high amount of Trust Flow and low Citation Flow this means that the links pointing to that site are from very trustworthy sources .i.e. a trustworthy site that you want a link from.” ~ Majestic.com
