    Hey Guys,

    (bare with me, this is the first domain I bought to redirect)I just purchased a domain to 301 redirect to my money site. DA 17, PA 28, TF 5 and CF 6, quite low i suppose. The backlinks look clean though, nothing spammy as far as I could see, coming from mixed sites with decent metrics. Unfortunately I forgot to check the wayback machine before purchasing the domain(Used godaddy 99c code so not a big deal), and I checked it after to see if there was content on there, but it was all in Chinese.

    Would it hurt to redirect this domain to my site? The metrics are alright I suppose, and the backlinks are not spammy or what so ever.

    They are naked urls, just the normal URL.

    In general, if a site has a bunch of Chinese content on it in the Wayback Machine, guys leave it alone and don't use it.

    Well I won't redirect then, 99c wasted, but lesson learned.. Check out the content before purchasing =)
