    I just bought an old domain in my niche.
    I want to use this domain for my SEO advntage.
    Should I 301 redirect the entire domain to my money site or build the current domain and send links to my money site?

    If the domain has backlinks history already pointing to the domain plus it has a PR of some valid, you can redirect it to your money site; otherwise, if you redirect, it wont help your rankings.

    Moreover, if it has history, you can create another site under it and link from it to your money site - depends on your time and effort to spend some hours in it

    What is better SEO wise?
    The domain has backlinks history, but lost it's PR and indexed pages untill I bought it.
    Should I try to create some pages in order to get some pages indexed and PR or just redirect to my money website

    Add some content. Give it some time to get indexed and get PR. Then , you can decide to link from the page or redirect. In both case PR will be important. So first try to retrieve the website PR.
    Thanks

    Which ever decision you take is a better one but i would rather create a site because it will be easy to rank.
