    Hi BHW members,

    I'm looking to start amazon affiliate site with expired domains.

    Domain has DA22, PA35, 0Spam score and non of the backlink has more than 2 spam score.

    Here i have to target 2 main product keywords(on same niche).

    Can i rank my website for expired domains?

    or shall i use fresh domains?

    When I find a good expired domain, I always use it to create my PBN, not moneysite. With a good PBN, you can rank many of your money sites. So it's better in long run.
    You can use it for your money site, however, if you do something wrong, and the site gets banned from google, then it gone 4ever.
    If you make a PBN, and your money site get banned, you can alway replace it with another site and still get the link juice from your good expired domain.

    I always use an expired domain with a decent backlink profile and metrics for money sites. Better if you find a related or brandable expired domain.

    My own experience.

    Generally most of the PBNs use expired domains with good metrices such as TF CF PA DA and RD.
    They do rank well.

    Expired domains are just one of the best ways to create backlinks, but you will need a lot more than just backlinks to rank ;)

    Agree with that statement, a good expired domain gets you to first base, but thats it. still need to do keyword research, solid content, then more fresh backlinks. Its not 2007 anymore.. :

    I would use a re-direct plugin, which sounds like the one you mentioned is. and add new content, or use archive.is or wayback machine to grab the old articles and post them all up.
    don't worry about the pages must be the same, because they don't, just do it quickly, move in and renovate.

    I would post a new content and use that plugin. Restore the content from archive can also be done only if it's related with your niche.

    Choosing an expired domain is the best choice.Look for domains that are a few years older, since it generally takes a while to a mass enough page rank.

    A strong PA and DA is a solid base to work from, check also TF and CF.
    Also see if they come with social media profiles too, as an added bonus.
    Always better to add new content, saves any potential duplicate content or copyright issues ( though these may be none existant ).

    I use PBN's all the time to rank sites, both affiliate and local, so yes, as long as they look natural and are quality built you should have no issues.

    Yes, you can! An old age domain is what Google loves. High-quality backlinks from a well-ranking site is not that bad, right? Just always make sure to check the history first.

    Sure you can, however ideally you would wanna have an expired domain that was in the same niche (at least broad) as your current one.

    Yes, it's possible, just make sure to check the links that are pointing the website if they are good. If the anchor profile is too spammy, it will affect your current site's anchor profile and it'll be penalized.

    Yes, it would help if the expired domain had a clean backlink profile and no penalties in the past. But I prefer registering new domains for my money site and choose shorter brandable domains. I have been doing this for years and they ranked well. Sadly I keep selling them.
