A few months ago we talked about how using aged domains with a good backlink profile can help you kickstart your SEO efforts. Aged domains can help you boost content sites, affiliate sites, and even branded companies if you can find a domain that fits your niche. In this article we’re going to review Odys Global, the biggest aged domain marketplace I’ve seen so far gaining traction in the last year or so.
First of all, if you haven’t read my interview about aged domains and have no idea what we’re talking about, please take some minutes to read this article about aged domains. Chill down, grab a cup of coffee and read it. I’ll be waiting here.
If you already know a thing or two about SEO and how aged domains can help you boost your rankings in different ways, let’s move to the next section and check out Odys Global.
If you’re in a rush, you only need to know a few key points:
- Aged domains can help you kick start your SEO efforts for almost any website
- A good backlink profile is very important for you to rank in competitive niches
- Aged domains aren’t new, and some domains have been abused or repurposed many times before. You need to make your diligence before purchasing an expensive domain.
- Because of this, aged domains are hard to catch and buy in auctions, and often are also expensive.
Additionally, for any person who has already tried to buy aged domains on their own, you probably know that finding good domains can take countless hours and you need to vet them checking there are no trademarks, shady historical records, or as I said earlier, they haven’t been spammed to death or repurposed for black hat practices. Overall, the process takes some decent experience and time besides being expensive.
Odys is a huge domain marketplace similar to the one we talked about a few months ago, but bigger and perhaps improved as well.
Right now they have a database with 1,099 domains available for you to buy and build your website ranging from a few hundred dollars to 5 figures and distributed in dozens of different industries and languages according to your needs.
Odys is invite only
First, you need to sign up and create an account through this link. Odys only approves accounts via exclusive invites, and they don’t guarantee to approve your account, but you’ll have a much better chance if you sign up through my link.
Also, if you go through my affiliate link you’ll get a $100 bonus for your first purchase just by signing up. Neat, right?!
Once your account is approved and you log in to the dashboard, you’ll see a list with all of the domains unfiltered. Right now as I said, I can see almost 1,100 domains available. You could really spend the whole day just looking at different domains and metrics here!
The first thing I want to point out here is the nice UI and filters to niche down your searches according to your desired industry. Having that many domains available you’ll find there are sometimes dozens of domains per industry category and sometimes even subcategories, which helps a lot to navigate the marketplace.
Filtering domains by language, industry, SEO metrics, etc.
Also, Odys Global has filters for languages and domain TLDs. A ton of domain providers focus on English-speaking countries only or they focus on a very specific country/language, such as Spanish sites, Russian sites, Chinese sites, etc.
However, you can find 21 languages available at Odys to grab your domain. Obviously, English is still the main volume but I’m happy to see dozens of opportunities for other languages as well.
Every time I’m looking for an aged domain I tend to look at different SEO metrics as well as the backlink profile using many well-known tools such as Ahrefs, SEMrush, etc. At Odys Global you can already filter domains by certain SEO metrics such as referring domains, domain rank, age, and price to make the process easier for you.
It’s nice to have all this information available in the dashboard for people who don’t have the tools or knowledge to check this data themselves, or just to make the whole domain hunting process easier. Just keep in mind the more you filter your searches, the fewer results available.
Another thing I like a lot about the marketplace is the interface and how you can swipe the cards information for every domain without having to open it in a new tab/window just for a quick look.
Besides giving you basic SEO metrics data, you can scroll left/right to see different things such as:
- Website description: information about the former website hosted on that domain
- Historical screenshots: To make sure the domain hasn’t been repurposed for a weird Chinese gambling website or whatnot. If you have ever dealt with archive.org you’ll know this feature is a blessing.
- SEO and traffic data: with more info about Majestic, Ahrefs, MOZ, etc.
- Featured on: this just shows a few of the top backlinks pointing to that domain. You should still do your dilligence here if possible and check the backlinks manually, but it’s a start.
Here’s how all of this looks in the dashboard for 5 different domains:
Should you need any more data just click on the domain card and you’ll get the information on 1 page. It’s basically more or less the same data but condensed in a landing page, but there are a few extras such as the market insights and the “featured on” data is way more extensive.
While Odys’ marketplace is used by a lot of niche builders and affiliate site builders, and most people do their own SEO research and build the websites with their own hands or teams, Odys Global also has content website packages available in case you’re all about delegating and scaling up content, or if you don’t have time or the knowledge to do everything by yourself.
Odys will get you proper hosting with an SSL certificate, keyword research data with competition analysis, a simple, beautifully designed website on WordPress (on-page SEO), and a logo along with one of the 4 content packages as shown below:
Packages go from $2,800 for 30,000 words and up to $11,000 for 150,000 words. The bigger the package, the less expensive the content becomes. If generally speaking we are talking about each post having 1,000 to 2,000 words, the basic package should net you around 20 posts or $140 per post.
While the most expensive package should give you around 100 posts at $110 per post on average. Your mileage could vary according to the niche and content depth but I just made some basic maths to give you a rough idea.
Yet if you have a content team or you’re willing to write the content for yourself then do it and leverage the aged domain that’s probably worth hundreds or thousands of dollars in backlinks and time if you did an outreach campaign.
