Domain Hunter Gatherer Features Preview

DHG is a lot more than a simple expired domains finder – it can find domain auctions, expired Web 2.0 profiles, show all important stats about the domains found and much, much more. The software has three versions – “Free”, “Premium”, and “Professional”. It’s important to note that the “Premium” version has all of the functionality offered by the “Free” version plus its own and the “Professional” version has all of the functionality of the “Free” and “Premium” versions plus its own. Here’s what each plan offers.

The Free Version

The “Free” version of DHG allows you to use the “Domain Auction Hunter” tool which can basically find domain auctions on all of the major domain trading sites – the software will go out and search for domains relevant to your keywords and will list them out in an easy-to-analyze manner.

The Premium Version

The “Premium” version of Domain Hunter Gatherer is mainly focused on finding expired Web 2.0 accounts and allows you to use the “Web 2.0 Hunter” tool. It will perform a search on all of the major Web 2.0 and blog sites (Tumblr, WordPress, Blogspot, Weebly, just to name a few) to find as many expired accounts as possible which are relevant to your target keywords.

The Professional Version

And finally, we have the “Professional” version which gives you access to DHG’s “Expired Domain Hunter” tool. It will basically find all expired domains which are relevant to your target keywords. “Expired Domain Hunter” can also crawl any website or URL you give it and find all expired domains on it.

All Versions

All of the three versions of Domain Hunter Gatherer are contained in a single beautiful and intuitive user interface (you will see it in a second) and have the following common functionalities:

  • Domains quality check – allows you to analyze all of the domains you found for important metrics such as DA, TF, CF, PR, price, age, etc.
  • Domains comparison – you can compare a bunch of domains with each other to find the ones you really want.
  • Export and import domains – you can easily save the domains you found and then load them back later on for further analysis.
  • Domains filtering – you can easily filter the domains by different metrics – DA, PA, TF, etc. The filters themselves can also be saved and then loaded again for later use.
  • Multi-threaded – DHG allows for multiple threads to run simultaneously, so you are not going to wait for too long before you get to analyze the domains which Domain Hunter Gatherer finds for you according to your keywords.

In a nutshell, that’s what this SEO tool is offering. Now let me show you how it looks and just how easy it is to find expired domains and Web 2.0 accounts. And so begins the ultimate Domain Hunter Gatherer tutorial.

An Element-By-Element DHG Tutorial

First of all, I want to start by sating that Domain Hunter Gatherer offers trials on both of its paid versions, so if you plan on following this tutorial with me, I suggest you subscribe to one of them. Alternatively, you can simply download the free version and take an overall look at the software yourself, but keep in mind that it has no access to the “Web 2.0 Hunter” and “Expired Domain Hunter” tools of DHG. We ride.

The Main Menu

When you first install and start up Domain Hunter Gatherer, you will be greeted by the following screen:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Home Screen

As you can see, the “Main Menu” of the software has tabs – “Home”, “Domain Auction Hunter”, “Web 2.0 Hunter”, “Expired Domain Hunter”, and “Setup and Help”.

The Home Tab

The “Home” tab lists all of the DHG video tutorials which help understand the basics of this digital marketing tool. The following video tutorials are available and really helpful:

  • Find expired domains with high authority links.
  • How to register found Web 2.0 accounts.
  • Getting started – settings for success.
  • Using the Domain Auction Hunter.
  • Find Web 2.0 accounts with backlinks.
  • Find quality expired domains.
  • Using the saving and loading controls.
  • Filtering domain lists.
  • Analyzing domains to find the gems.
  • Using the domain list controls.
  • Find expired domains in any niche.
  • Check list of pages for available domains.

The Setup and Help Tab

I moved straight to the end after the “Home” tab because before you start using DHG, you want to configure it properly otherwise it won’t run at its maximum potential. Now click the “Setup and Help” tab:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Setup and Help Tab Settings Sub-Tab

First of all, I want you to note that there are 4 sub-tabs to the “Setup and Help” tab – “Settings”, “Advanced Settings”, “Work Log”, and “Help and Support”. By default, the “Settings” tab is selected and this is what we are looking at.

The Settings Tab

Now divert your attention to the left hand side with the 5 sections:

  • Dom Detailer API SettingsDom Detailer basically combines Majestic and Moz into one and does not set a limit on the API requests quota. You simply buy credits, for example 50k, and you can check 50,000 domains for their Moz and Majestic stats. Now if you have purchased the “Professional” version of Domain Hunter Gatherer, you get 50,000 Dom Detailer credits for free. Alternatively, you can also go to Dom Detailer and purchase credits, and then manually paste in your API key into the “API (non-Pro only)” field. In a sense, if you have Dom Detailer credits which is the recommended approach, you should forget about setting up Moz and Majestic accounts.
  • Shared Count API Settings – Shared Count allows DHG to show social stats about the domains you have found. These included Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, etc. The “Free” plan of Shared Count allows for 1,000 API requests daily, but if you log in with your Facebook account, the number increases to 10,000 daily API requests. So you can be pretty certain that you will see social stats for all your domains for free.
  • Moz API Settings – Again, if you have Dom Detailer credits, you should skip setting up Moz. Otherwise, you can sign up for a free account and get your “Moz Access ID” and “Moz Secret Key” and then copy paste them into their appropriate fields. However, with a free account you are limited to one API request every 10 seconds.
  • Ahrefs API Settings – Ahrefs is something I always skip because first of all it’s quite expensive and secondly, I get the metrics I need from Dom Detailer. Ahrefs now has a free account as well, but it will show metrics for just a couple of domains before it exceeds its daily quota.
  • Majestic API Settings – Majestic is an absolute must when it comes to expired domains metrics. You can either register a free account which gives you around 10 domain checks per day, or you can simply roll with Dom Detailer which is much more efficient.

Now when it comes to proxies, Domain Hunter Gatherer just like 99% of all other online marketing tools is strongly dependent on proxies to perform better and faster. A handful of private proxies from BuyProxies or a bunch of freshly checked proxies from GSA Proxy Scraper will do the trick. But, you need some proxies and that’s for sure. I always paste mine in the “Primary Proxies” section, because I have never had a need for “Secondary Proxies”. The ones I use work just fine. As for the settings below the proxies:

  • Continually Update From File – If you want to manage your DHG proxies externally, you can simply save them to a file and import that file into Domain Hunter Gatherer. So later on, while the software is doing its thing, you can simply change some proxies from that file – remove bad ones, add new ones, etc – and then DHG will automatically use the new proxy list.
  • Test Primary Proxies – opens a window where you can test your primary proxies. Shows whether the proxies are working, whether they are anonymous, and their latency.
  • Auction Searching – whether you want DHG to use the proxies when it searches for domain auctions.
  • Quality Checking – whether you want the software to use proxies when it checks for domain metrics i.e. Moz, Majestic, etc.
  • Searching – whether you want Domain Hunter Gatherer to use proxies when it performs searches on search engines to find expired domains and Web 2.0 accounts.
  • Expired Domain and Web 2.0 Checking – whether you want the tool to use proxies when it is checking the expired domains and Web 2.0 profiles for availability.

At the bottom of the “Settings” tab, you can see some “General Proxies Settings”:

  • Load File Delay x seconds – this concerns the “Continually Update From File” option and basically configures the amount of time that has to pass before DHG reloads the proxies from the file.
  • Re-Schedule Job on Proxy Fail – retries a job which failed due to a bad proxy. Currently this feature supports only domains analyzing, so if the analysis of a domain fails with one proxy, it will be retried with another one. In the future, this option is expected to support availability checking for both expired domains and Web 2.0 accounts and also, the searching for domains.

And that’s basically all there is to the “Settings” tab. Now all you have to do is click the “Apply and Save Settings” button. Now, switch to the “Advanced Settings” tab.

The Advanced Settings Tab

The next thing you want to do is to configure the advanced settings of Domain Hunter Gatherer:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Advanced Settings Tab

Let’s start with the “General Settings” box:

  • Auction Search Threads – the number of threads that will be utilized when DHG is searching for domain auctions. You don’t need this one to be higher than it already is, because there are only so many domain auction sites. 5 threads work like a charm.
  • Search Engine Searcher Threads – the number of threads the software will use to perform searches on search engines. I think the default number is 3, but you can tweak it depending on the number and quality of proxies you have setup. If you have some nice private proxies you can go as high as 1 thread per proxy, but I have found that generally, 5 – 10 threads tend to work best. Your proxies won’t get burned out and DHG will still get the work done fast enough.
  • Availability Checker Threads – the number of threads that will be used to check if the domains and Web 2.0 accounts are available for registration. I leave that at the default number of 50 and it works out pretty well.
  • Details Checking Threads – the number of threads DHG will use to get the domains metrics. The default is 5, but I double it simply because I always use quality proxies and I’m sure they won’t get burned. Also, this speeds up the expired domains and Web 2.0 accounts hunting quite a lot.
  • Connection Timeout – the number of seconds that would have to pass before a proxy is considered as failed.
  • Search Delay – the number of seconds to wait between searches – I usually leave it at the default 60 seconds to keep my proxies healthy, but if I expect a lot of domains found (for example I entered a lot of keywords), I will get this down to like 10 – 30 seconds, and maybe add in some more proxies.
  • Name Instance – this is quite simply the name of the Domain Hunter Gatherer instance you have opened which shows up at the top right before the software version. It’s extremely useful if you have more than one instance of DHG running so you’d know which one is doing what. You can name the instances according to you keywords, purpose of domains search, etc.
  • Minimise to System Tray – whether you want the program to be minimized to your system tray.
  • Max Pages per Level – the amount of pages you would allow DHG to scan for each level. Generally, the default number is good enough so you don’t get those ugly ran out of memory exceptions.

To the right of the “General Settings” box you have the “Bad Words List” which is exactly what it sounds like:

  • Don’t crawl pages with any bad words – DHG will ignore pages which contain any of the keywords in the bad keywords list.
  • Don’t check availability domain with bad word – whether you want the software to skip checking the availability of domains which contain any of the bad words in their names.

At the bottom you have the button “Use Default Bad Words List” which basically fills up the field with the default bad words coming from Domain Hunter Gatherer. Now, I have so far not used any bad words, because I filter the domains once they show up in the results table (you will see that in a minute). However, using bad words might speed up the domain hunting process a bit, but, you could also skip some potentially good domains because you added some keyword to the bad words list which might be simply a part of a longer word meaning something different.

Once you are done with your advanced settings, you can simply click the “Apply and Save Settings” button and be done with it. Domain Hunter Gatherer comes pre-configured nicely, so you can pretty much skip touching the “Advanced Settings” options if you don’t know what you’re doing.

The Work Log Tab

The “Work Log” currently outputs only errors and bugs, so most of the time it will be empty.

The Help and Support Tab

The “Help and Support” tab does not switch to a screen once clicked but shows the following menu:

  • Guides – takes you to pages where you can watch the basic guides to using Domain Hunter Gatherer. Has two sub-menus:
    • Getting Started
    • Video Guides
  • Contact Support – if you have something that you don’t understand about the software or something that doesn’t look right, you can send a quick message to the support of DHG. They answer extremely fast (within an hour), so that’s pretty cool. There are two ways to contact them:
    • Members Help Desk (Quickest Support)
    • Email
  • About – get to know the SEO tool you are using.
  • Frequently Asked Questions – takes you to the FAQ page of Domain Hunter Gatherer.
  • Advanced
    • Open Install Folder
  • Log Out

That concludes the “Setup and Help” tab. And now that you have your Domain Hunter Gatherer instance configured, it’s time to find some quality expired domains and Web 2.0 accounts.

The Domain Auction Hunter

As we already said, the “Domain Auction Hunter” tool of DHG is 100% free and you have unlimited access to it. Here’s what it looks like:

Dom\ain Hunter Gatherer Domain Auction Hunter

As you have probably noticed, there are 4 sub-tabs of the “Domain Auction Hunter” tool – “Hunt Domains”, “Filter Domains”, “Analyse Domains”, and “Search Settings”.

Search Settings

The “Search Settings” tab basically allows you to choose which domain trading sites should Domain Hunter Gatherer use in order to find domain auctions. Currently the following ones are available:

  • Bido
  • Huge Domains
  • Above
  • Snapnames
  • NameJet
  • DynaDot
  • GoDaddy
  • Flippa

You can simply check or uncheck domain trading sites based on your preferences.

Analyse Domains

This is the tab where you will perform in-depth analysis of the domains DHG found for you and their metrics:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Analyse Domains

The “Which Domains to Check” select box allows you to filter out domains which you want metrics for:

  • All Domains
  • All Filtered Domains – will analyze only domains which match your filters. Filters can be PR3+, DA 30+, etc – you will learn more about them in a minute.
  • Selected Domains – will analyze only the domains which you have selected from the table below.
  • Favourited Domains – will analyze only domains which you have favorited.
  • Unchecked Domains – will analyze only domains which you have unchecked from the table below.

The domain metrics currently supported are:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Supported Metrics

That’s basically it for the “Analyse Domains” tab. Keep in mind that this tab is completely identical to the “Analyse Domains” tabs for the “Web 2.0 Hunter” and “Expired Domain Hunter” tools, but we’ll get to that in a minute.

The Filter Domains Tab

The “Filter Domains” tab allows you to filter the domains which Domain Hunter Gatherer found for you. You can filter by:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Supported Filters

Just as the “Analyse Domains” tab, the “Filter Domains” tab is also completely identical for the “Web 2.0 Hunter” and “Expired Domain Hunter” tools.

The Hunt Domains Tab

Finally, we get to the good part. This is where I will illustrate to you just how easily this SEO software works. For the purposes of this example, let’s say that we are looking for domains in the insurance niche, so I will simply enter the keyword “insurance” in the “Search Keyword” bar and fire up Domain Hunter Gatherer:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Hunt Domain Auctions

In just about 15 seconds, DHG found 4,759 domain auctions. And as you can seem they are all relevant to the keyword we entered – “insurance”. Now let’s filter them out and analyze the remaining domains. You do that by switching to the “Filter Domains” tab and clicking on the “Add Filter Option” button. A window will show up where you will be allowed to choose a domain metric by which to filter the domains. I set a PR3+ filter and I get 14 domain auctions remaining:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Domain Auction Filter

Now let’s analyze these 14 domains. Switch to the “Analyse Domains” tab and remove metrics you don’t want to see. I will remove Ahrefs and SEMRush metrics simply because I just haven’t configured an Ahrefs account and I won’t get any metrics from it anyway and SEMRush I don’t need. Leave all the others checked, select “All Filtered Domains” from the drop-down menu and click the “Start Analysis” button:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Analyse Domains Auctions

In no more than 30 seconds, Domain Hunter Gatherer went out and got all of the metrics we selected for our domains. You can’t see the Moz, Majestic, etc stats, because they are a little bit to the end of the table. However, I notice a few domains which looked really good in terms of TF, CF, PA, DA, and number of links.

The most convenient part of this table is the fact that each domain name is an URL to the domain auction itself. So you can instantly jump in and place your bid. Pretty cool right? You also see the auction deadline, the current price, whether it has a “Buy it Now” option and the number of bids for the domain.

The table also allows you to rearrange columns by dragging them around, and also remove columns by simply right-clicking on any one of them and deselecting the ones you don’t want. The domain auctions table also has a contextual menu if you right-click anywhere in it which provides the following options:

  • Favourite Domain(s) – you can favorite domains which will show a little gold star in the first column from the domain auctions table. That way it’s easier for you to spot domains which you have, for whatever reason, liked at some point.
  • Hide Domain(s) – allows you to further filter the domains and has the following options:
    • Hide Selected Domains
    • Hide All Finished Auctions
    • Show Only Favourites
    • Show All Hidden Domains
  • Delete Domain(s) – you can remove domains from the table via this option – you can either remove selected ones or clear the entire domains table.
  • More Stats – opens up the third-party site where you can further analyze the selected domain. So you can quickly open the domain you have selected for further analysis using one of the following tools:
    • Moz Open Site Explorer
    • SEMRush
    • Majestic Site Explorer
    • SharedCount
    • Alexa
    • Whois
    • Wayback Machine
    • Search Engines – opens up info about the domain’s stats on search engines. Supports 3 search engines.
      • Google
      • Yahoo
      • Bing
  • Remove Sorting – removes any sorting that you might have performed. For instance, if you sorted the domains by PR, this will remove the sort and return them to their default sequence.
  • Invert Selection – selects the domains which you have not selected and deselects the domains which you have selected.
  • Copy – you can copy selected domains or selected rows to the clipboard.
  • Visit Listing Page(s) – opens the domain auction pages of all the domains which you have selected.
  • Export Selected Domains – you can export the domains you have selected into:
    • Txt file
    • Csv file
    • Xml file
    • Print Report

The one thing we haven’t looked at is the import/export section on the screen, which simply allows you to save the domains you have found and later load them back into Domain Hunter Gatherer for further analysis.

And that’s pretty much all there is to the “Domain Action Hunter” tool of DHG. Now all you have to do is perform an in-depth analysis of the domains which look good (just like we did here), and then jump in the auction with your offer. I actually am looking at a few decent domains – one with 33 TF, 37 CF, 52 PA, and 42 DA and one with 22 TF, 23 CF, 26 PA, and 14 DA, so I will surely be checking these ones out. Now let’s move onto the next tool in the arsenal of Domain Hunter Gatherer – the “Web 2.0 Hunter”.

The Web 2.0 Hunter

It’s finally time to find some beautiful high PA expired Web 2.0 accounts. If you’ve checked out our manual method for doing that, you’d see that it’s not difficult at all, but still takes some time to do. On the other hand, with Domain Hunter Gatherer, the expired Web 2.0 accounts are found within minutes. The “Web 2.0 Hunter” (only available in the “Premium” version of DHG) just like the “Domain Auction Hunter” has 4 tabs – “Hunt Aged Web 2.0s”, “Filter Web 2.0s”, “Analyse Web 2.0s”, and “Search Settings”.

The Search Settings Tab

This is the tab where you configure the Web 2.0 sites which you want expired accounts found on and several other options:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Web 20 Hunter Search Settings

You can select to find expired Web 2.0 accounts on the following sites:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Supported Web 2.0 Sites

The options to the right allows you to choose the search engines to be used by DHG for the finding of the expired accounts and you can also define a date range of the search.

The Analyse Web 2.0s Tab

This tab is absolutely identical to the “Analyse Domains” tab of the “Domain Auction Hunter” tool. It simply analyzes the metrics of the expired Web 2.0 accounts.

The Filter Web 2.0s Tab

This tab is absolutely identical to the “Filter Domains” tab of the “Domain Auction Hunter” tool. It allows you to filter the expired Web 2.0 accounts found by Domain Hunter Gatherer by the various metrics they have.

The Hunt Aged Web 2.0s Tab

Now it’s time to find some niche relevant expired Web 2.0 accounts. Again, just like in the example for the “Domain Auction Hunter”, our niche will be insurance so we will search for insurance related expired Web 2.0 profiles. Now, when you click the “Search” button, DHG will first spell-check all of your keywords (you can add more than one keyword by separating them with commas), and ask you if everything is cool. Once you make sure that your keywords are as they should be, DHG will start the expired Web 2.0 accounts search process.

Domain Hunter Gatherer Expired Web 20 Accounts Results

In less than 10 minutes, I got my hands on 22 expired Web 2.0 accounts which are relevant to my keyword. Out of those 22 Web 2.0 profiles, we have 2 which are PR2 and 2 which are PR0, which is pretty decent. PR -1 simply means that the Web 2.0 account has unknown PR. Now, when it comes to Web 2.0 profiles, we don’t look at DA, we only look at PA from the Moz stats. DA will always be higher because it is measured on the absolute domain level. As you see, out of the 22 expired Web 2.0 accounts we found, 3 have a high PA – namely 28, 43, and 27.

Those three are viable accounts for registration. Once we check their Majestic scores and other relevant metrics, we can proceed with the registration process. The way we do that is simply clicking on the URL, which will most probably take us to a 404 page, and then we find the register page on that website and we create an account with the same username.

So if I were to now go and register the 43 PA Web 2.0 account which existed on, I would simply click the URL “”  from the table and then I would register a blog with the username “lifeinsurancecomparelifeinsurance”. And so I did:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Registered Expired Web 20 Account

There you have it. I am now the proud owner of a 43 PA profile. And all this done in less than 10 minutes. This is the power of Domain Hunter Gatherer.

I forgot to say a little bit above that the table of the “Web 2.0 Hunter” has the absolute same contextual menu and functionality that the “Domain Auction Hunter” has. And that wraps up the Web 2.0 part of DHG. Now it’s time to find some real expired domains.

The Expired Domain Hunter

We have finally arrived at the most important tool of Domain Hunter Gatherer – the “Expired Domain Hunter”, which is available only in the “Professional” version of the software. Unlike the two tools we went through before above, this one has 5 tabs – “Hunt Expired Domains From Keywords”, “Hunt Expired Domains From Website”, “Filter Domains”, “Analyse Domains”, and “Search Settings”.

The Search Settings Tab

The “Search Settings” tab of the “Expired Domain Hunter” tool allows you to configure how DHG will search for expired domains:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Expired Domains Search Settings

As you see, you can configure 5 search options:

  • Search Options – the search engines you want Domain Hunter Gatherer to use when it searches for expired domains.
  • Footprints – the footprints that you want DHG to use in order to find pages which might have outbound links pointing to expired domains. If you recall, we used blogrolls in the previous chapter of the expired domains saga.
  • Countries – performs the search on search engines using only the selected countries. Equals you manually changing the search settings in search engines and selecting only specific countries.
  • Languages – performs the search on search engine using only the selected languages. Equals you manually selecting certain languages in the search options of the search engines.
  • Use Custom Date Range – limits the search to a certain date range.

When you are done with the search settings, you need to click the “Apply and Save Settings” button otherwise they won’t be used in the search.

The Analyse Domains Tab

The “Analyse Domains” tab is absolutely identical to the same tabs from the “Web 2.0 Hunter” and “Domain Auction Hunter” tools, except for the fact that it adds one metric to the pool of quality checks – origin page. Basically, the origin page is the page which’s outbound links were used to find expired domains. Let me elaborate.

You see, the way it works is, DHG goes out and finds some pages (origin pages) using the footprints from the “Search Settings” tab, and then it scans each of these origin pages for their outbound links i.e. domains links on these pages point to. If Domain Hunter Gatherer finds a link which is dead, that means that the domain which it points to might be available for registration. And that’s how DHG searches for expired domains.

The Filter Domains Tab

The “Filter Domains” tab is completely identical to the same tabs from the “Domain Auction Hunter” and “Web 2.0 Hunter” tools.

The Hunt Expired Domains From Website Tab

This tab basically allows you to scan origin pages for expired domains. If you have manually found some blogroll page for example, you can simply paste its URL into the “Hunt Expired Domains From Website” tool and it will scan all of its outbound links for expired domains. You can also force Domain Hunter Gatherer to only check outbound links which either contain or do not contain certain keywords.

You can think of this tool as doing the same thing Xenu does, but only listing the expired domains as an end result. Here’s a preview of the “Hunt Expired Domains From Website” tool:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Hunt Expired Domains From Website

As you can see, you can either crawl a single origin URL via the “Crawl” button, or you can import a file with multiple origin URLs via the “Crawl Page List” button. The “Crawl Levels” setting is the depth of pages DHG will scan. So for instance, as it is now, Domain Hunter Gatherer will scan the outbound links only on the origin URL. If set to 2, DHG will scan all of the outbound links on the pages which the outbound links of the origin URL point to. I just happen to have a list of origin pages, so let me show you what this tool can do:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Expired Domains From Website Results

In less than a minute, DHG was done and the result was 18 available expired domains. I even see a PR2. That’s cool. No further investigation though, it’s time to find some expired domain relevant to our keywords.

The Hunt Expired Domains From Keywords Tab

When you purchase the “Professional” version of Domain Hunter Gatherer, this is where you will be spending most of your time. Again, we will use the keyword “insurance” to see what’s up with the expired domains in that niche:

Domain Hunter Gatherer Expired Domains From Keywords Results

Domain Hunter Gatherer finished in just about 10 minutes and found 808 expired domains from origin pages relevant to the insurance niche. Then I simply analyzed the domains and got their metrics. Now all I have to do is filter them out by TF, CF, PA, DA, and perform an in-depth expired domain analysis on the remaining domains just like we did in the find cheap high PR expired domains step-by-step tutorial.

This concludes the ultimate Domain Hunter Gatherer tutorial. Now it’s time for an honest review and after that, an exclusive discount for everyone interested in this awesome online marketing tool.

Domain Hunter Gatherer Honest Review

After all said and done, I think it’s pretty clear just how useful Domain Hunter Gatherer really is. It’s so simple to use, has a perfectly structured user interface and doesn’t require much configuration to begin with. All you need is a bunch of proxies, preferably private proxies, some credits from Dom Detailer, and you are good to go. Simple as that.

Then all you have to do is pick your niche, some keywords in it, and click the “Search” button. Domain Hunter Gatherer will list all domain auctions, suspended Web 2.0 accounts, or expired domains found using your keywords. After that, all you you have to do is get their metrics and filter them out so you will be left only with the potential gold nuggets. A bit of manual analysis of said potential gold nuggets and then it’s registration time.

My experience with DHG has been nothing but amazing and I just love how simple and intuitive the UI is. Building your own high PA Web 2.0 network, finding niche relevant domain auctions, and finding cheap quality expired domains has never been easier.

      Hey Jason,

      I have a bunch of dedicated proxies so that’s what I am using. I haven’t tried the tool with semi-dedicated, however, I think it should be OK with those as well.

      Let me know if you have any other questions.

      Hey Jason,

      The same thing has happened to me on several occasions, but I cannot really say what the problem is. Sometime the Vanity Name Checker just doesn’t show accurate results. As for the TF/CF stats, I do prefer them over Moz metrics, but PA is still a good sign of, at least, a number of backlinks. In the best case scenario, you would have good TF/CF and high PA, but u will still benefit a lot from high PA Web 2.0 profiles even if their TF/CF ratio is bad.

    I purchased DHG for Web 2.0 properties. But I got to know that many Web 2.0 properties would either charge you to re-register or they simple say the name has been taken..I’m afraid even Tumblr links are meta refresh..Hmmm

      Hey Aditya,

      That’s quite weird. I mean, I also do get the occasional available Web 2.0 that is taken, but not that much. What keywords are you scraping mate? Maybe try more not-so-searched-for terms in your niche. I have noticed recently that a lot more people are now aware of scraping expired Web 2.0 profiles, so it’s normal to get available, yet taken properties. I would suggest you to play with the keywords.

    Hi, thanks for the awesome review.

    I bought the trial of Professional (top tier) but can’t find any details for how I get my DomDetailer credits?

    Do you know how I access these?

      Hey Sam,

      You don’t need to get any details. They are there. Just go to settings and you will see the option ticked. Start scraping and u will see Moz and Majestic stats come up for free.
