    I found a niche for my blog and got luckily EMD website. From reading BHW i knew to check the history of the website. The website was owned in 2012 by a person who had the same exact idea i know have. DA is 10, PA is 22, CF 17 but TF 0 god damnit. With web history i can see that the site was article spinned badly. Im probably screwed already but let me tell you my idea.

    Lets say the site is called "xideas" and i would write articles like "fun x ideas for kids" or "best simple x's". I also read about how wordpress, which im going to use, duplicates these kewords because the themes have widgets like recent posts etc. Before reading about this i thought of adding categories to the blog but not anymore. Also same guide noted that if you have main keyword in website name and in articles its going to be a problem. The thing is that the main keyword "x" doest really have a synonym. Also the articles that i would be writing would many times have keywords that are good in ad competition and monthly searches but total searches could be around 1 million.

    Is there any point to building my blog website? Im a newb but i have gained so much good information from BHW so i dont want to invest heavily in a stupid idea.

    I could not read the full of your Threads, Its making me confused really what you want to say. I just read your Title, 1s Paragraph & Last Line. Based on that I think you can start as you learned a lot from BHW. DA=10, PA=22 is not good enough for a PBN.

    Im not bragging about the DA or PA, im scared of the TF 0. Maybe if i write two articles to my site and then get a high TF link from a web 2.0 blog and test if that helps. Or is that CF 21 TF 0 unfixable?

    DA/PA/TF/CF numbers are only half the equation when buying old domains.


    Quality and number of sites linking to that old domain, along with anchor text ratios, are just as important to get a clean domain. It's also important to use archive.org to make sure the domain did not have crappy spun content on it before or was part of a PBN. IMO, if 1 item looks amiss, I pass on that domain.


    Also, there's really no advantage to an EMD anymore for a money site. Branded domains rank just as well.


    IMO, I'd pass on building a money site on an expired domain like you have.


    I find it easier to buy and rank a new domain for money sites. That way, if it gets penalized, I'm the one that did it!

    The earlier owner had like the shittiest content available and linked the shittiest material. Damn this is frustrating. Maybe if i change the address of the site to begin from www to non-www? At least moz gives different metrics for these two and doesn't find incoming links for the other.

    Actually im not even that mad since im learning so much lol.

    Yes, I agree with some of these guys. Pass on this. Shitty back links will haunt you. If it were just the old content, I think you could fix that, but the links will cause issues.

    Is the site indexed in Google?
