    Hello everybody,

    I have an expired domain that has the following info from the moz open site explorer and I am wondering if it will be a good starting point based on the statistics.

    The keywords in the domain are perfect which is why I am thinking about starting a blog there.

    So here are the statistics or the domain form the moz:


    Authority:

    DOMAIN AUTHORITY
    13 /100

    PAGE AUTHORITY
    25 /100

    SPAM SCORE: 5 /17


    Page Link Metrics:

    JUST-DISCOVERED
    0 60 Days

    ESTABLISHED LINKS
    13 Root Domains
    26 Total Links


    Although it has a spam score of 5/17, the link count is small, so I was thinking that the spam score would improve as I add more good links.

    Would it be a good choice to start my blog on? Can the spam score actually negatively impact my starting point or not? Would it be better just to start out with a new domain?

    Thank you all for the advice,
    Simon

    I wouldn't worry about the moz spam score.

    Just check the anchors of the already existing links to see if they are ok (not chinese or spammy anchors), and as bilbo said before me, check also the metrics on other tools like Majestic and Ahrefs.

    Definitely use Majestic. It will be a life savior. Before purchasing old domains that have expired I always check

    only Majestic can help you best in this regard. Its the only best source in domains industry to checkup these completely and give you some amazing and awesome results. Really it always gives some amazing results. Don't rely on every tools mostly are scrap in the field
