    For the love of god ya'll... everything I read says the trust/authority of a domain is huge now and will only get more important... so I bought a high authority domain in my niche with no issues only good links from top sites no bs at all.

    Lets pretend the domain is petproducts.com and it was not an active site for about a year as the previous owner decided to discontinue, but before that it was a 15 year old site that had a DA/PA of lets say around 60. I also own lets say dogtoys.com and it was an ok domain with a DA/PA of around 50 with a linking profile pretty good itself that was a 16 year domain no bs linking.

    Now, I created a category for the petproducts domain called say petproducts.com/dog-toys/ and I 301 forwarded the dogtoys.com to that category about a month ago (34 days ago to be exact) keeping linking in tact.

    My DA/PA is now in the 70's and my TF is sitting at 30 and CF is at 70, set to go even higher in the next month or so as more yummy hufpost, cnn, nypost related links index.... yet, I see no difference in ranking as what I used to with Just my dogtoys.com domain where I was stuck for almost all my toys on the first page but always sitting like position 5,6, 7, 8 or worse. Yet, the pages ahead of me are lower pa/da with no linking (that I can see) to the internal pages that are outranking me and I even have decent links going to the individual pages.

    What the hell??? I am getting so frustrated, any advice? I can't spam or do anything that would put the domain in harms way with Google and must be able to pass a manual review without a doubt.

    Advice? Experience? Thoughts?

    First rule of after-PR-discontinuation is...DA is not Google metric.

    2nd rule is anchor text is still VERY important.

    3rd rule is - Do your on-page properly.

    4th rule is - Some sites sit for years at the end of page 1. Why? No one knows. But rules No.2 and No3 might help-

    No really, if your redirect is not perfect you may end up with more damage than good. I have some domains with ludicrous amount of "wow, look at that awesomeness" links but I wont redirecting them anywhere because their anchor profile wont help me shit with keywords I wanna rank for.

    P.S: In the last DA update DA metric went up for a lot of domains, which means if your site was Da60-ish pre-update it is probably normal that now this number is in 70s. Which again does not impact keyword rankings.

    Do you not see a problem here ?

    TF 30 CF 70 ?

    Do you know how TF/CF works or was that a typo?

    Yeah, I forgot to comment on this. It does look like a undesirable ratio.

    You might want to take a deeper look at the backlink footprint as well as the actual quality of the links to your dropped domain.

    You'd be surprised as to how dirty some of these links could be.

    Sure, a lot of the high-quality links would stand out and I'm sure that on average everything looks above board.

    But if you were to scratch beneath the surface, you might be surprised as to why you're not getting the kind of results that you are expecting.

    Nine times out of ten, it has something to do with backlinks.

    So you might want to keep digging.

    This is the reason why I try to stay away from expired domains.

    It's like contracting cholera on purpose.

    Nobody needs it.

    There is no such thing as a completely clean domain unless you controlled it before.

    I know that it is quite a claim to make.

    But if you're looking for a tremendous amount of control that is the only guiding principle you should go by.

    Is common to buff a domain before u sell it. For sure the seller sent a bunch load of crappy links to the domain to influence metrics and cleaned the link profile before selling it. That TF-CF ratio is the most important proof of this scenario.
