Churn and burn sites do they hold any seo value?

    Hey guys like many of us on this forum I have been looking to buy some good expired domains.
    In my daily search I found 2 domain names that had great backlink profiles.
    After doing more research I found out that these 2 were churn and burn websites or so I think.

    Registered for 1 year 175k+ backlinks and its in the payday loans niche.
    Both are PR 0 but have moz DA of 53 and PA of 60 and the other 1 has DA 54 and PA62.
    Most backlinks are still live and have not been deleted.
    So I have a couple of questions!
    Was this a good purchase and is DA and PA more important then PR or are these 2 useless?
    Also what would be the best way to use these 2 for seo purpose.
    I have no plans yet to enter the paydayloan niche since I dont have the money or skills to compete with them.
    Can I use them for other niches? Or am I stuck with payday loans if I want to make good use of these 2.
    Any advice would be welcome.
    thanks in advance
    best regards

    PR is not updated over months, so PA and DA are really important when you looking for seo purpose. As it's belongs to payday niche, they are surely churn and burn. Better you can 301 those domains to a new domain.

    do 301 redirects only work niche specific or could I say I 301 redirect those domains to a totaly differnt niche website would this work? or do I need to stay in the payday loans niche?
    thank you in advance!

    I've heard that sites that churn and burn inG will still rank in Bing. Ok thats only 5% of the market but if its payday loans thats still well worth having.

    If it's PR0 then i won't buy it....

    PR is very important in terms of ranking while you can't rely on mere assumption and believing that the next update that's if it ever come will bring you joy.

    Just do a 301 to your new domain and after a week check the Yahoo/Bing Rankings =)
