    Recently i was looking for a domain for a specific niche, is my first time im getting an expired domain and this domain was exactly what i was looking for so even if it had spam score i took it.

    I dont know if is a good idea to use it since i dont understand allot of the metrics thats why i wanted help in this part.

    An answer about if this domain can be used would be awesome guys :)

    Is it expensive? If not, then the only way to find out how bad it is, is to buy it, add some test content and see if it comes back to the SERPs.

    Those metrics from Moz and such services can't tell you the real stuff.

    Moz spam score is not a very accurate metric to judge the spam quality of a website. By the number of backlinks and the domains authority is does look like a good domain.

    However, its difficult to really tell the spam level without going through the link profile of the domain in detail.
    Go to archive.org and check the previous versions of the website to find out if it was previously used as a PBN domain, or was spammed with chinesese, japanses stuff.

    Use majestic or ahrefs to check if the anchor profile is clean.

    All the above due deligence is still not enough to determine if domain is good, it however reduces the probability of it being spammed or penalized.

    Lastly, but the domain, host it and see if it gets indexed.

    You were misinformed. Google already tracks all the impressions and clicks and CTR and everything for every website. It asks you to verify your website for webmaster tools access is because only the website owner is entitled to see all the information google collect about the website.


    Adding the website to webmasters tools doesn't do anything different nor does it attract any unwanted attention from google. Only thing that you won't want to happen is google knowing that you happen to be the owner of a bunch of different sites. Happens when you add multiple sites to a single webmaster account.

    Alright, after a quick analysis on your website this is what i conclude:

    1) In the industry, if you are able to grab an expired site that has a lot of searches for a profitable keyword with awesome metrics for $10 without having to bid in an auction, 99.99% the site is penalized and useless.

    2) On the top of everything, this one is a game hack expired domain. The owner would not have let it expire at any cost if it was ranking and making money. So we can deduce the sitet was penalized and he let it expire. You are not going to rank it no matter how many links you make.

    3) At one of the crawlers recent crawl it sat at positions near hundred for some long tail keywords. WIth that many backlinks, it should have been atleast between 5-10 on the first page. Deduction- The site got penalized.

    4) Signs of GSA's spam found. Another sign it would have been penalized.

    5) Extreme anchor optimization (48% for one keyword) . Another sign of getting hit.

    My suggestion will be not to use it either as money site or as a part of your PBN. I doubt it will even get indexed. If it does it will never rank.

    Here is a tip for you little Opie.

    Go learn some basics please.

    The amount of people opening threads lately, having zero clue about anything even remotely connected with SEO, is starting to hurt.
