    Q: if i got a very good expired domain, why should I include it into my blog network? because it's powerful enough to be turned into my next niche / authority site.

    Q: All of the backlinks still count if I restart a site with expired domain? The PR won't drop? the juice will stay? if it's true then why so many people get a new domain then?

    Q: it's ok the host all the site of blog network within the same host? if no, blog network indeed is very costly to invest. because you have to maintenant them.

    There are few threads which can answer all your question. Do a search and you will find the answers. People have explained how to set up a private blog network . all the best

    1) Because the expired domains carry the domain and page authority, PR and age which is beneficial. So a link from such domains can massively boost your rankings. Tried and Tested!

    2)Yes all the links will count provided the links will stay and don't get deleted later. So buy a domain with high referring domain so if you loose one link there are others backing your PR. No you won't lose the PR unless you lose the backlinks which are sending the PR juice so make sure you check the links in Ahrefs, Moz or Majestic and see the PAGE PR..If its equivalent to current domain PR then its a good sign that the PR will stick but you never know so also consider DA and PA(opensite explorer)

    3) No, dont host them on same host ofcourse since the link value diminishes if all the backlinks are from the same C class IP. Also there is a chance to leave some footprints that way..so avoid hosting on same host. Best thing you can do it search for $1 to $2 per month hosts and host the domains on each of them. Yes it will turn out to be costly so you need to invest a bit but its worth it.

    You may include it into your network AND then turn it into your next niche site. I'd stay away from anything "blog" on your expired satellite domains though. It is better to restore old content with all the site structure from archive.org, or just create a small non-blog site. Too many generic blogs with standard templates and thin content create footprint.
    Backlinks still count, PR will drop, but usually 1 to 2 points, juice will be watered down but still it would be better than no juice at all. People get new domains because it is in order of magnitude (sometimes in two orders) cheaper than good expired domain and new domain doesn't have any penalties, which expired domain can have and will carry on with all the juice and whatnot.

    No, it is not ok. Yes, it is costly. I for one spend near $3000 yearly on domain fees and hostings for my network of a couple of hundred sites. This is not much, there are people who spend way more.

    Good point. Some decent expired domains would also costs hundreds of dollars, while a new one could be registered for few bucks, and with no penalty risks. Even if i would check it on ahrefs or archive.org before to register, who knows :)

    There is no reason why you can't do both. If you're careful you can have blog network sites that also work as authority websites. You just need to be careful to cover your tracks that's all.

    Yes, they sure do. That's why expired domains are so popular amongst the blog network crowd.

    NO NO NO!!!

    All your websites being hosted on the same IP / Nameserver / Host is a massive red flag that you own them all!

    Split your sites among a number of cheap web hosts and don't bother using SEO hosting. People have mixed reviews on it including those who have had their networks found out! Keep it simple and operate a number of hosting accounts with popular hosts i.e.: hostgator, go daddy, 123 etc etc... Think the exact opposite of security by obscurity, what you really want is security by looking plain!

    Yes, you are right. Don not ever host your network sites with the same IP and even with the same hosting service. Try to spread your sites on several hosting services otherwise there will be red alerts.
