Let’s get started.

Find Expired Web 2.0 – Tumblr

I am going to find expired Tumblr blogs with good metrics in this tutorial.

Of course you can go ahead and use this method to find any expired web 2.0 platforms that you desire.

First of all you need to get yourself the three tools you need to do this.

You can follow the links below to get them installed, of course you must get Google Chrome first.

  1. Download Google Chrome
  2. Add Check My Links to Chrome
  3. Add MozBar to Chrome

When you have those in place you can get started with the exciting stuff.

Believe me, you can find some pretty amazing Tumblr blogs that have some serious rank juice.

Do not underestimate these blogs, they still work today.

I will now show you how to get an add on installed on Chrome and ready to use.

To add the Check My Links add on to Chrome I will go to the add on page, link above.

Add Check My Links Add On

First of all click on “Add to Chrome” top right.

Check My Links Pop Up

Next click the “Add extension” button on the pop up window.

Check My Links Options

Now you will see an options page, leave everything on default.

Check My Links Default Options

Simply scroll to the bottom of the options page and click the “save my preferences” button.

Do exactly the same thing to add the MozBar extension.

So now you will be using the Google Chrome browser window, which will have two add on’s installed (Check My Links and MozBar).

To use each add on you need to select them on the toolbar.

Turn on Chrome Add On

You will see the new add on’s in the tool bar at the top right of your browser (highlighted in red above).

Simply click on each of the Chrome add on’s to activate them.

Now you have the free tools in place; Google Chrome Browser, Check My Links and MozBar it’s time to find some expired Tumblr web 2.0 blogs.

First of all perform a Google search string like this: + “insert your keyword”

Search String to Find Expired Web 2

Perform the search string as shown above. Of course to find niche related expired web 2.0 blogs you can enter your exact keyword into the search.

Now you need to scroll through the results and click on the results starting at the top.

Beware that you will not find dead links on every page, it takes some time, but is well worth the effort.

So the next step is to use the Check My Links add on to find some dead Tumblr blogs with rank juice.

Go ahead and click on a site in the Google SERPs.

Check for Dead Links

When you arrive at the site hit the Check My Links add on as shown above.

We are looking to find “Invalid Links”.

This means we have a link on that web page that points to a dead Tumblr blog.

The more dead links we find the better.

Most of the time you will not see any dead links.

Keep running through the sites in the Google results pages until you find a site like I have above that shows an invalid link.

Next we need to find the invalid link on the web page, this is very easy, the Check My Links add on highlights them in red.

So go ahead and scroll down the web page to find the dead link (highlighted in red).

Find Dead Links

As you can see I have found the one dead link on the web page I have open.

The dead link will be shown as above, it will be highlighted in red and show “404” after it.

All good links, as you will probably have gathered are highlighted in green.

So, I have found an expired Tumblr blog (this is the dead link).

Next you can go ahead and click on the dead link to head on over to the expired Tumblr blog, we need to do this to check the metrics before we register it.

Tumblr 404 error page

The Tumblr 404 error page looks like this (above).

Now we can use MozBar to check the metrics, is this expired Tumblr worth registering?

Does the Tumblr have backlinks to it and some rank juice I can use to rank my sites higher?

Go ahead and click on the MozBar add on to see some metrics.

Off course this is just a guide, you can use other tools to check trust flow and citation flow if you want to.

Check Tumblr metrics using MozBar add on

As you can see, this expired Tumblr blog has a domain authority and page authority of 27.

The site actually has a lot of backlinks, 12,724 in fact, this could be very useful.

To see a backlink report click on “12,724 links” shown on the MozBar.

check the web 2.0 backlink profile

I can see this expired Tumblr blog has some backlinks to it from some high authority sites. This is great!

check web 2.0 anchor text profile

The anchor text profile leads with “Brand”. This is also a good sign.

The last step before I register the blog is to check if this expired Tumblr is still indexed in Google.

This makes things easier down the line.

To do this simply paste the full URL into Google search.

Check if your blog is indexed

The blog will show in the search results if it is indexed.

As you can see, this particular blog is not indexed.

To index this expired Tumblr I will fire backlinks to it from other Tumblrs in my network that are already indexed.

So, when Google bot crawls my indexed blogs next it will find and index this new Tumblr blog.

If you don’t have any indexed web 2.0 blogs in your network yet, you can buy our 50 Tumblr backlinks service to get this done.
