    I would like to start a private blog network and was wondering if buying expired domains with high page rank and domain authority is safe? Or is it better to start from scratch?

    Ok, then forget about page rank. It's been outdated for years, and recently they removed it. So RIP page rank. End of story.

    If you want expired domains I advise you to not pick them by metrics, but by the backlink profile. If a domain has quality backlinks and a clean backlink profile then you should consider it, after checking its history.

    Nowadays Page Rank is outdated. So, buy domain with good DA. If you want to get your money site with good metrics, try to buy good backlink domains. Check the backlinks before you buy the old domains.

    Buying old domain is a good choice. But be sure of backlinks history before buying it . Page Rank was dead no need that.
    Domain with good metrics like DA PA CF TF....also help you to rank high or gain more traffic.

    You can buy an expired domain which should does not contain any spammy links,look for it before buying.
    And then you need to change the content quality and keywords with high quality that mostly relating to your niche.

    Buying the expired domain with exact quality content and keyword matching with your site is the choice.
    And by creating a high quality content with low competition keyword will only increase your site ranking.

    Try to get good metrics expired domains because it reduces your ranking on google results.
    And make sure you have quality contents and quality OBLs because these are the ways to get traffic to your site.

    Expired domains is a big business that is really gameable. Don't rely on D.A. only for your metrics and page rank as a term has been phased out since about 2013.

    Page rank as a concept still exists though, just not something the public is privy to.

    There are a few things to do when checking for your expired domains.

    1. Main Keyword in URL
    2. Backlink profile (use google advanced search for this, make sure you target images, pdf files, everything. Literally spend the day with google advanced search finding any mention of your website in the index. https://www.google.com/advanced_search
    3. Wayback Machine will allow you to see 1 if it was crawled often, meaning you are getting traffic and the spiders picked it up and 2. what the content was like before it was expired. If you see a bunch of junk and bad content on the snapshot, don't buy it
    https://archive.org/web/
    4. Use tools like semrush, ahrefs, moz, broken back link checker and scrapebox for that final good inside feeling you have found a diamond in the rough.

    If you do not do all those things and confirm you are making a wise purchase, just send us your money, we will buy beer and at least you can have a good feeling about wasting your cash

    Pagerank is dead. Use Majestic's Trust Flow, citation flow and Moz's Domain authority, page authority. Although I use only Majestic's metrics. :)

    Hi buddy. There are many threads that advice you how to create PBN. You will get entire ideas including choosing expired domains.

    Concentrate on PA,DA, CF, TF and quality backlinks for niche keywords.

    Use MOZ and majestic to check these things.

    Rely on nothing when you are buying expired domains. If you are buying auction domains you can still go with what is advertised as you get to see the marketplace bidding and would know for sure what is around with the domain.

    Buying an expired domain is good option. But, you should be very careful in these things before you buy, like domain history, anchor test spam, relevant back link, authority, trust flow.
