    What if the backlinks and traffic relating to the old domain aren't related to the content of the new domain? Or do you check if the backlinks are related first, before you buy the old domain? You can't check the traffic, though.

    I think, that in most of the cases. The old domain name says enough about the relevancy.

    Bought a 10yrs. old domain yesterday on GoDaddy auctions for the BIN price. The expiration date was in feb 2010 and once I get it it would be 2011 I guess since I paid for 1-year renewal also. GoDaddy says that the domain should be in my account on 31 March.

    I will try what you guys suggested here, will redirect it to another site of mine in the same niche.

    I've been doing this for a while now at Godaddy's auctions. As long as you check out the domain you're buying first and use a 301 Permanent Redirect then you'll benefit from it.

    I usually check the backlinks, see if the links are still actually there, I check the archive.org to see if the domain was redirecting or had content on it. I also check to see if the site is still indexed in the search engines (such as Google).
    Need links? Try AuthorLinks where you can buy or sell links based on Authorship and Klout score. Check out my blog or like me on Facebook.

    One more thing, keep in mind that you don't necessarily have to 301 redirect the domain to your own site. I find that it's also helpful to put up a new site on that domain and start creating new content on it...and link it over to your own site.

    Also, once you get ahold of the domain it's helpful to immediately put content on it and start watching the 404 errors. Oftentimes there's traffic and links going to an internal page on the site...and if you put up that same old URL you can take advantage of the links and traffic to that old page (or redirect that old URL where you need to redirect it).

    You can also put the domain into Google Webmaster Tools and use the External Links report to see which URL's you should reconstruct.
