    2 questions about PBN

    1) is it better to have 50 PR1 and PR2 or 10 PR4? (I know PR is outdated, but let's say based on the backlink profile, you feel that all PRs are real and current - in other words, you feel the PR1 really deserves to be PR1 and the PR4 really deserves to be PR4)

    2) is it absolutely required to recreate the site the way it was before? what if archive.org doesn't show anything? sometimes, archive.org shows that the auctioned domain used to be redirected to another domain, so an actual site never existed?

    1) PR is slowly losing itz "power", so i would prefer 50PR1 domains with hidh da/pa tf/cf than 10PR6 with very low pa/da cf/tf
    2) no you dont need to. You can use a wp plugin which name i forgot that instead of sending the visitor when trying to get ij one of the "past" urls will 302 redirect to the homepage instead of giving a 404 error.

    Relevance is most important. High PA & DA.

    Site doesnt need to be exactly as before, although should be in same topic.

    ie health site still a health site of some sorts

    PA, DA and CF can be deceiving. I can boost those to 40+ with blog comments. Trust Flow is the only metric that seems to be difficult to manipulate using low quality links, so I usually look for high Trust Flow.

    Interesting. What do you define as a high TF? 10+?

    I used to tell people 10+ but now I do 15+. An average site can get 10, but 15+ is pretty decent.

    but the numbers sometimes lie. for example, I have come across domains with high DA high PR high trust flow high everything but only 10 legit backlinks. Then there are domains that have 100+ legit backlinks and they have low DA low trust flow. doesn't make any sense.

    A1) I'd base this on a number of things. Whilst PR is slowly losing it's metrics, it is reliable to a degree if you do your homework on that domain. If the 50 PR1s were in the same niche and had a solid, natural backlink profile I'd take them. However, if the PR4 domains had DA/TF of a real PR4, and the PR1s had the DA/TF or a real PR1 (considerably lower), I'd opt for the 10 PR4s.

    A2) No you don't need to have it exactly the same, however, if you can do so. I generally try to create mine within the same general niche though.
