I know how to get the PR, but I don't know how they found the links. Thanks for the link though..
Does PR disappear by the time you get the domain?..
Just go to pool.com or snapnames and download the list via a script and parse it..
Also try pcnames.com.
BTW - did anyone else receive a PM from a guy selling an expired domain service? I would recommend digging deep into the pcnames.com service before buying his product. Their service is free!..
Every time I try to buy an expired domain, it says it's already taken..
Expiring domain name lists have not been useful for a couple years. These days pool, snapnames and enom have that market completely in their pocket.
This is assuming that you are shopping for domains with good type in traffic of course, if the domain(s) you are interested in is very obscure or rather ugly then you will be ok. These three companies have such massive computing power and bandwidth it's guaranteed that any worthwhile name will go to one of them and either be kept or go into their respective auction systems...
Just because it's expired, doesn't mean youll be able to get it right away, it can takes about 75 days until the domain drops and is available to register. At the point, if someone from enom or snapnames wants it they are likely to get it because of the resources and registrars those companies have access to. This article is a good place to start if you're interested in getting expired domain names: Mike Davidson: How to Snatch an Expiring Domain...
I use Webmasterbenefits for expired domains..
I have a few invites for comp (free) accounts that I am willing to share..

Not sure whether or not they provide an API but Exody(tm) Expired and Expiring Domains was always a nice resource...
