How to Find Dying Domains

I made 21K last time I applied this to one of my websites. For huge profits, you need to apply this, plus some additional techniques.

I made this video specifically to be given to outsourcers. You can go on and get this task done for cheap. Or, you can do it yourself. Feel free to send the outsourcer directly to this page.

the video is on arborsupport, howtolinks/14/14.swf  but I outlined the steps below because most people can’t play swf files anymore.

VERY IMPORTANT: For huge profits, you need to apply this, plus some additional techniques.

Do This Everyday:

1. Do a snapnames search (see video)
2. Do namejet search (see video)
3. Copy all domains into excel
4. Search 100 at a time in seochat for PR value. (with www and without www)
5. Any that are PR2 or up, do a search in google for see if any pages are still indexed.
6. If any pages are still indexed, go to the indexed pages and find an email address and phone number (whois won’t work because the name is expired, most likely)
7. If no pages are indexed in google, go back to your excel spreadsheet and look for the “drop date” or “auction date” If it is over 20 days from todays date, go to and look for old copies of the site to find an email address and phone number.
7. Email them the text at the bottom of this page, and copy me on all emails.
8. Send me the website address, the page rank, the phone number and email address in your daily report

Here is the email to send out at the end of the process, if the website meets all the requirements:

Hi <insert name>, (if there is no name, just put “Hi”) I’m from Chicago, Illinois, and I noticed that <insert URL> had expired. It is a great site, I’d hate to see it die!

I would love to take over the domain name when it expires, but the registration company won’t let me register it because it hasn’t been released to the public yet.

However, they said if we completed a domain transfer I could register it under my name ASAP…

Would you be interested in doing this? I promise to give this domain a good home!! I’d keep all your current content on there as well so people would be able to access all that information.

Let me know

Great info! You’re definitely moving the free line here!


Hi Chad
Excellent post! Great quality information, ideas and tips. All new to me. Thanks!

mary annsays:

great information… Thank you for the insight.


Very informative. Two thumbs up. I would like to do it but kinda afraid coz i have limited money to invest in that method.


It’s look like a domain tweak.


Chad : Great info here. I’ve noticed the date is 2007, so is this info still valid as it is or are there any changes??

Keep up the good work.


Hi Chad,

So once we own the domain, we host it via our own hosting account, and keep the original websites content as is? Then we just publish links to our site(s) we are promoting, on the new domain we purchased, rite?

Thanks for the info, always great!



Excellent video. Great info and details.

Thank you


Bonnie Bootssays:

Chad, as always, a very detailed, easy-to-understand presentation of a valuable tactic. Your free material is better quality than many paid presentations. Kudos!

dean dyersays:

hey bro,
I love your style, but a lot of your stuff is old and needs to be updated.

do you do this stuff today in 2009?

David Norden Secret Marketing Linkssays:

Hi Chad, I would also recommend namecheaps marketplace, discoered some gold there to:

I always enjoy your content, but this video is a bit dated, snapnames looks quite different today. Still good content here. Do you have an affiliate system in place, would be interested to promote you.

Karen Davisonsays:

I agree with the previous people – this is very old – while the content is good the sites have changed and I’m curious if some of the techniques have too.

Simon - WebTyrantsays:

yes.. we’ve been doing this for a long time.

godaddy tdnam after market is another great place

These days.. we just grow our own.. currently at 3500..
and people don’t understand how the leverage effect really multiplies..
the seo results and other real world benefits

Keep up good work Chad,



Thanks for the tips,Great Video

Its Ok if they are old, I didn’t know about and will explore it further.

Thanks again

Skye Gunnersays:

Chad –
Liked the info . . . .was very immersed in the content as you were about to enter the phone # into Google and the video stopped @ 9:05

Does it go longer?

Many question left unanswered

Very much liked the content

I am a student of You-Tube-Cash Secrets

Also my question is:

Can there be a “tie in” with your YouTube Cash Secrets marketing approach with the acquiring of expired site / domains?

My brain is telling me there is . . .not sure how to piece it together -What to you think?

Please don’t laugh . . .it may be obvious to you . . .still learning the ropes on this end

Needing a “A-HA” moment

VERY- interested in your feed back about the “tie end” -Hope to hear back

Your a great teacher thank you for the very good info

I agree with Bonnie from above ⇡⇡⇡

Randy Kempsays:

This video is excellent and presented info I never knew before. Please continue to make these.


a couple comments wondered if I still do this.. yes I’m entering a couple of new niches this week, and doing this exact technique to get it ramped up quick.

I didn’t update the videos because the techniques are still exactly the same, even though the websites in the vids have updated their interface


@Skye Gunner the one way you can integrate the youtubecash techniques and the dying domains technique is to get these domains, and then point them to the youtube videos you are promoting. with these powerful links you will find your youtube vids moving even faster up the rankings



Your videos are always so helpful. Not only did you teach me something about how to acquire domains but you taught me something I didn’t know about Excel. Now if all your videos had transcriptions to them that I could print out I’d be in 7th heaven!


I have been watching and learning from all the video’s you have mailed out.

I have learned, and put into practice your techniques. I also have purchase your course.

Just want to thank you for all the information you continue to share. I now have a sense of success for the future.

Jeanette Kelleysays:

I am jumping around and looking at all of the information offered for newbies. Always interested in free info. Thanks

Hi Chad.

I know that i have definitely had some great info. off you to day.
Keep it up , and thanks Chad.

Brian Barghoutsays:

Thanks for a very interesting and detailed explanation. I’ll be using it to train my staff. A few comments above pointed out the video was outdated but things move so fast in internet marketing whatever you did would always be outdated sooner or later. But the basic principles always stay the same.

Best regards



Hi Chad,

The new snapnames website won’t produce date results. Am I missing something, or did they take that out in the new site?



Fred Freysays:

Wow! That was great-my head is expanding- thanks for the great info.
Can I am assuming the statements copied below is a velvet sales pitch for Domain Tweak?

Interesting chaddo dude… I found this article that I bookmarked last week which also looks like an even easier method.

I haven’t tried it but checked out the sites referenced and it looks like it would work..

Peace brotha!

ANSWER FROM CHAD: Thats a pretty good link, but its a bit of a different technique dealing with grabbing up the domains after they expire, which isn’t what I’m talking about here. The technique in my blog post above deals with grabbing these domains BEFORE they expire, directly from the existing owner. Less risk of google deleting all the pages, pagerank, and backlink data that way.

Eng Hwa Heng @ Mahmodsays:

there is a website that can scan a webpage and grab email address,
There is a free software that can do mass pagerank lookup, and the best is, there is a website that gives the pagerank and alexa rank too for expired and soon to be expired domain, so you can skip this procedure and focus on trying to capture the domain.

So now the job should be selecting the domain name -> dump the domain name to the email extractor and get the email -> send email


Thanks Chad. You are a wealth of information and a great resource !

Dr. Jack Agnewsays:

I watched the video again and I assume you updated it last year… and the method seems to be timeless. As usual, GREAT ideas from a real Master!


Thanks Chad…kinda miss the crazy old dreads but its a great new look, especially keeping with the big ole beard.
