Hi Peoples, Quick question if I may. I recently purchased a whole bunch of .com domains from someone that were previously used for aol mailing (and that is it). The domains are all roughly 2-4 months old. I was told that when I purchased them there would be no listings on them. When I received the domains they ALL were listed on the SH's DBL. The provider is telling me the following. "The DBL's like I said are always going to happen... i bet half the domains you bind right now, that are purchased brand new will get DBL right away, many times right before you even drop. This will always happen.... DBLS are automated scanning technology that spamhaus uses. This is why most companies do not subscribe to it... These will out perform your new domains every day, every drop..... Look at your rev and stop looking at the DBL thing.. this happens no matter what...DBL's will not go away whether they are brand new or aged.. but the Aged domains get you a higher Senderbase score for sure because they have good activity on them, you don't have to worry about the Spam Eating Monkey or Day Old Bread hits as well and they are half the price that you are paying and you are also getting .coms and .nets." My question is whether or not his claims are correct and how much can I expect DBL listings to adversely affect performance. Is there any point in using these? (BTW - We tried to remove these listings (NC) and they came right back). I appreciate your input.
