    When buying a domain for the purpose of doing a 301 to a money site, does its PR make any difference, or am I better off finding ones with high backlinks?

    Excuse my ignorance but what is high trust flow? Is that the quality of the back links?

    Now the question of the day, if there's a domain with high metrics but BL anchor txt spammed/symbols and other crap, how would such react on $ site?

    I have 2 domains I'm looking at, both are kind of in the niche I'm in or thereabouts, from a quick scan, they both have legit back links and some slightly fishy ones.

    Here's the metrics

    Site 1
    External Backlinks 319
    Referring Domains 49
    Referring IPs 39
    Referring Subnets 37
    Trust Flow 12
    Citation Flow 23


    Site 2
    External Backlinks 895
    Referring Domains 67
    Referring IPs 60
    Referring Subnets 59
    Trust Flow 14
    Citation Flow 25

    What is a good trust flow to look for?

    This is pretty much true, but if you have to ask this kind of question you're probably not ready for 301s. You need to understand WHY they work, and what a legitimiate backlink profile looks like. Just 301'ing domains because they have PageRank or stats isn't going to help you if you don't know what to look for and why they work.
