    I'm in the middle of setting up a new micro niche / mini authority site though have the option of either:

    A) An aged non dropped .biz domain, previously used in a different niche though with a relevant brandable domain.

    Vs

    B) A branded partial match .com domain.

    From both an SEO point of view and starting out a new Mini Authority site, which would you choose and what do you think the benefit of each would be?

    Drop both in the Open Site Explorer tool here: https://moz.com/researchtools/ose/ the results generated should be pretty straight forward on which domain you should roll with, if you are in question feel free to PM me. I also have a full $99 premium account on moz.

    Thanks for that, it's a shame I don't think I would be able to afford the same .com as the .biz, as it's a single word.
    So you would suggest the latter.

    Good idea, I hadn't checked moz. The .biz has da 3 and pa 19, also it's got a high CF though no TF.
    The latter is completely fresh, thoughts?
