    Hi guys, I've just a simple question. Do you avoid expired domains which are previous used for a pbn?
    I own some domains which good metrics, no spammy links etc. But waybackmashine expose that they were already used for a PBN.

    Better to avoid them when you have other option to choose clean ones, but those domains, if not penalized, by happen natural dropped by former owner, it is in theory will do same like a clean PBN domain, but consider big G nowadays, its dangerous to use!

    Yes definitely avoid those because most likely their are deindexed.

    Yes, avoid domains that were previously used as PBN because there are chances that they are penalized.

    Don't bother. As soon as you see a former PBN history, throw the domain away. Even though it's still indexed. Not worth the risks really. If you want though and ONLY if it's indexed, you may use it, but it's not something I would advise.

    Even though domain has the good metrics you should completely avoid them because it may get penalized.

    if they have already been used as a pbn in the past, then it would be of no use now as the previous owner already discarded them and made them drop.
