    I was thinking about buying an expired domain with legit backlink history instead of buying a new one. I'm going to do full research to see if it will pass spam detection and if its indexed by google. Any tips?

    best is to buy a old domain. It's much easier to rank compared to a new domain.

    I'd go for expired domains as well. Just make sure it has a clean history on Archive.org and has a decent backlinks (have authority links if possible)

    Take time for understanding whether the expired domain has been algorithmic or manually penalised.
    You need to mix up the content with a good quality related to your niche.
    Search for Namejet and Aftranic which helps to get more expired domain names and increase website traffic.
    You can see most expired domains displaying PR 7 they are mostly like fake and scams,don't believe in such domains and don't try to purchase them.
    Use moz and majestic seo to check if the back links will stay in their position after you purchased.

    The contents in the old domain site may or may not be spam. So check it with spam checker and then try to buy it.

    The old domain owner tried to increase the rank by using backlink technique or may not. So check the metrics such as DA, PA, Alexa etc.

    Choose keywords of longtail which relate to the domain name. ie., for xyz.com site, use keyword as xyz in longtail keywords.
    Its better to get rank as high as possible.

    Its a right choice of buying expired domain which can rank high easily.
    But be sure of spam score and metrics of domain before buying.

    Expired domains with a good backlink profile from sources that are difficult to get links from would offer you best rankings.

    Yeah! Expired domains with good backlink profile indeed. Make sure they are not spammed/bused domains and also check history of the domain in wayback machine.
