Hello WebmasterWorld!
Quick question for you guys. I was looking through a deleted domains website and found myself going to dogpile typing in the domains to see if they were listed in any search engines.

Is there a site currently that checks this for you? If not Id be interested in making this happen (:

Whatcha guys/girls think?

I've got a script that processes the lists of soon-to-expire domain names and gives me the link pop for each of them. I only check one engine, because the lists are long (10,000 domain names take about 12 hrs to check against 1 SE). The code is trivial. Thats different than rankings though. It would be pretty tough to check for that.

Ranking doesnt matter to me either, just the fact its still in there and shows up. Let me know if your willing to share your code or not =)~

Hi EliteWeb,

If I was looking for a good expired domain, I would look for one that had a Yahoo, Looksmart or an OPD directory listing that fit in the same business category of the site I was going to purchase the domain for.

Google will clean the site out too quick to take advantage of its current links and the other Meta SE's that do not update their dbs on a regular bases may not give the listing advantage you are looking for.

Because of this I would narrow you listing search to Yahoo and LookSmart and ODP.

Go here for some help

I would check out [alexa.com...] and [64.232.113.195...]

[popular-domains.com...] also sells software that performs this task.

I've seen a site that regularly lists deleted domains that have linkpop or Yahoo listings. Anyone know what I refer too?

You might try [onsnap.com ]. I used it a bit in the past. It does take a long time but seems to do a decent job.
