    Hello guys
    I found a domain with pretty good metrics and that doesn't seems to have been spammed.
    It also have backlicks from Dmoz.
    The problem is that this site has been hacked I think.
    If I try to open the expired domain in my browser, I get the phishing warning.
    Google too have the "This site can hurt you" message in search results.
    But even if the site is expired and hacked, every single link is still indexed in google.
    I do not know what to do now. Is it worth to buy for PBN?

    So is it a bad domain? If recovered won't pass good juice as PBN?

    Well the problem is that I already backordered that domain... I mean I checked metrics and backlinks profile and everything was good and clean so I backordered it
    The next day I Tried to open the site in my browser (Usually I do not do this since it's expired domain and usually it doesn't open anything) and I get that warning and I opened a thread here...

    There was 2 other bidder but I was the first to backorder this domain, so the auction started with me as best offer and anybody offered more... So sadly I get that domain for 30$

    Here are the metrics:
    DA: 28
    PA: 40
    TF: 30
    CF: 35

    I do not know what to do now with this domain... If you say there isn't a way for recover it or if you say it's bad for PBN and go with other domain I think I should just understand I lose 30$...

    Congratulations you just learned what NOT to do again. That's worth at least $30. :)

    Who knows, could have been okay. I've had several sites of mine hacked and didn't notice for the longest time.

    Hi mate,
    Can i dare ask why?
    I have had money sites receive same notification about being hacked, having malware etc and eventually losing the rankings. But recovering them is pretty easy after you have removed the the malware and cleaned your domain.

    The scenario when i really think of dumping a domain is if i believe the site penalized, been spammed in past. But with infected sites there is a very good chance you recover.
    May be there is something i can't see, but i really want to know.

    Mainly because of the extra work to clean it up and the chance that it may not be "forgiven" by Google. There are tons and tons of quality domains that don't require that extra work and risk.

    IMO, I'll forget that domain. Not worth to buy.
