    I want to build my PBN soon but many people want only domains with high TF , others want domains with high authority backlinks on it.
    So the question is : Which works better and stronger? Is a domain with 10+ high authority backlinks much better and stronger than a domain with a high TF? Or is a mix of both good ? I dont want to loose some money if i buy crappy high TF domains and they dont work!

    Both, you need domains with high quality authority backlinks to achieve high TF :D

    If a domain is getting hight TF with crappy links then forget about it !

    .

    OP, you can get high TF with no follow links?

    Look at the backlinks?

    I also asked this question the other day and everyone agreed on backlinks, and to be honest i feel that its the best way. Ive recently acquired a few PBN domains with backlinks from PR10/PR9 domains and their trustflow is quite poor in comparison to sites who have 100/200 other lower quality links.

    However its been said that one back link from a high PR site is much more powerful than 100 lower quality ones which can jack up the TF.

    Both authority backlinks and TF are proportional to each other. It is a good option to filter domains which are good in both these metrics.

    Thanks for help guys! Will look for domains with some high authority backlinks..
    Didn't know that a domain can get high TF with crappy links.
    Also most domains with backlinks are much more expensive than domains with high TF...

    Only use metrics to filter your list THEN you manually check the domains.

    I scrape a few thousand domains, filter them by DA,PA,TF and CF/TF ratio (below 1.8)

    After that im left with a few hundred and manually check them, takes hours of work but well worth it.

    First = TF
    Secondly = Good Backlinks Profile

    But it takes too much time better to hire someone to do that for you, here are lot of providers selling good quality domains with good TF, DA and backlinks profile. I'm using service of SEO Lover and he's obviously one of the best seller of BHW.

    Google do not use any of those metric data. Backlinks are the gold.
    So go with quality niche related backlinks. if the domain has backlinks from your niche then buy it.
    Aditionally you can dig dep to find domains with good backlinks and high metrics

    The metrics are only data to help you decide the quality of a domain. In general, DA 20+, TF 15+, PR 4+ is a good start. First you need to make sure the domains have clean backlink profiles - no spam links and cross check these data using different explorers available.

    Then further analyze the quality of the backlinks - where the backlinks come from, authority site? .edu? .gov? I usually focus on quality, so general I prefer 20 links from PR7+ domains than links from 2k PR0 domains. But still you need a decent amount of backlinks, so even some got removed over time, it still retain decent authority.

    Also check the sites those backlinks come from, their metrics, socials & OBL (think of it as your Tier 3), if everything looks good, try to look at the site's history as well, just to make sure if there is anything about the domains you should know about.

    High TF Domains will obviously Have good Backlinks but there are few exceptions too.
    But i mostly stick to TF or DA and buy them for my money sites.

    Don't focus too much on metrics but try to get domains with decent backlinks from contextual sources. Too be honest I used to wonder the same thing, but after trial and error I found that it's all about the links to the domain.

    Any metric is only a mere sign whether you should investigate this domain's backlinks. That's all.

    If you sell this domain/site/links to buyers, metrics are important. But if you use the domain for yourself, what difference they make??

    A combination of both. Website will have an increase of TF because of the good backlinks. Also, make sure that the domain is not abused or spammy.

    I think backlinks are more important. Don't forget that it is also possible to fake metrics.
    Recently I got some domains with TF 30+, but their backlinks aren't the greatest. Well, then I scraped some domains with backlinks from bbc, the guardian, buzzfeed etc., but they had a low TF (about 5-15). I found the impact of the good backlinks domains are higher than the impact of the high TF ones.

    OP Getting a domain with high TF and high DA ratio is a good combination. Also, check the registrar drops - don't get a domain if it has drops more than x times.
