    Can I make this site my PBN if it already was used as PBN? Backlinks are natural and everything is fine. It wasn't linking to any spammy websites while it was used as PBN before

    No no no. It could have been detected by google and penalized.

    It's riskier of course but I won't bother with the fact when everything is looking fine. Go for it.

    If may not be penalised today but the chances of getting penalised sooner in future is much higher than any other domain

    Of course you can. However, if I was looking at this domain I would be asking myself why the previous owner let it expire. If it wasn't good enough to help him will it really be good enough to help you?

    No. There's a reason why you found it and no one else has registered it already. There are literally thousands of them out there.

    ^^This

    It's a huge no. If it's still indexed, then feel free to use it, at your own risk though. If it's not indexed, then it goes straight to trash. There are other good domains out there, no need to waste your money on something, that's probably penalized.

    Now I am freaking confused... I already purchased this domain and unfortunately realised the fact about its history afterwards. It is still indexed in google so shall I use it or not?

    So many different answers. Anyways thanks

    Ah... considering that you have already registered it... if it has clean anchors and good looking backlink profile, then use it. You've already spent money, so it doesn't matter. Don't use it as money site though.

    To be safe, don't use the domain if it was previously used as PBN because this might have been abused and got penalized before.

    No, you have not wrote what I wrote. I explained why it may not be the best idea to use it and why should these kind of domains be avoided. You wrote straight "yes", I wrote "yes, if you already registered it, but apart of that never ever", so stop acting butthurt, I am getting really allergic to it in these past few days.
