What are the Page Ranks?
Google discontinued its Pagerank metric in 2016 but the last update was 2013. However there are other indicators that can give some results. Open Page Rank is one such external indicator. Although it doesn't range as high as Google it is not confined to whole numbers and can therefore cover a large range useful for indication of a domain's importance. Average Page Rank is something we created that uses an algorithm incorporating the open page rank along with majestic and moz figures to give a more conservative and balanced estimate. As with all metrics they should not be considered alone as a sole source of information about how popular a domain is.
What is the Estimated Spam Index?
We utilise and analyse the data from Majestic, Moz, and Alexa to attempt to get a determination about the quality of any potential traffic. This is obviously easier the more metrics we have and therefore there will be domains without an ESI indicator. This does not mean they are no good only that there wasn't enough information to determine their quality. However where there is enough indication this is pretty accurate as to the quality of links and can be used to spot a spam site using trash incoming links to make statistics look good.
How often are the metrics updated?
Metrics are measured when a domain first enters the expired cycle. They are then checked again every few days until drop or renewal. Some external sites such as majestic may update minute to minute but that is simply not possible for our service. However they usually don't vary much from the current value and, in a lot of cases, they never change throughout the cycle.
Are expired domain metrics accurate?
Once a domain expires and is not renewed the last known metrics are the information that goes into the database. They are never checked again as this is a waste of resources. The amount of incoming links will usually reduce over time so all metrics should only be taken as a rough indicator. There are some domains in the expired database that don't have all metrics/dates - as this database goes back several years there was a starting point where not everything was monitored. The expired database is great for ideas but, as always, further investigation should be carried out on anything of interest.
Site Use
How do I see which tld extensions are registered for the same domain term?
The TLD column tells you the amount of tlds that the term is measured in. When you hold your mouse over an amount in that column the tooltip shows which ones they are. They are in a string form of 'cnouibmx' which means 'com/net/org/us/info/biz/mobi/xxx'. So for example a tooltip showing 'c-o--i---' means the domain is registered in .com, .org, and .info
Can I hide the columns I don't want to see?
Below the header bar above any search boxes or date searches are a list of all the columns. Clicking on these will hide/show the column you selected.
