    I have a domain that's now 2 years old. The original plan I had for it was to build a community around a product that's name is in the domain. I setup a blog and a forum and there's some content, but I never stuck with it, so it never went anywhere and has PR0.

    I've since come up with a plan for a new site about the category the product was in. If the original site was Hummer-drivers, the new site would be something like SUV-news type thing.

    Thing is, the domain is due for expiry very shortly. Is it worth me renewing and using as a buffer site for my new site? Would I find that I have a bit more leniency for doing scrapebox blasts for instance with a 2 year old domain instead of a brand new one?

    Just curious if there's a point to wasting another $10 on renewing a domain that will expire in the next week.

    agreed my older domains are more amenable to sb blasts, ranking quicker, ranking higher, etc

    correct! Google loves older sites. So use that to your advantage.

    Since it's an old domain, yes... it would adapt better than the new domain when getting blast, however since there has been no real backlink activity it will set off red flags.
