    Hi guys:
    I'm thinking of buying an expired domain with good backlink profile (let's say xyz.com). My only concern is that for a couple of years, the original owner used it to redirect it to her new site (say abc.com) via 301 redirect.

    Now that she has let xyz.com expire, in Google's eyes, do the backlinks it has under its belt pass juice to itself, or still to the new domain, even though the 301 redirect is now gone?

    Thanks for any insight!

    If the 301 is natural - its ok.

    Thanks, yes, the 301 redirects as mentioned were by the original owner of the domain when she switched to a new domain.
