    I came across a list of 3000+ expired domains through konker seller. Most of these domains of high tf/cf. Some even 20+ but almost all of them have Backlinks less than 10 and RD less than 5. Some have only 2 anchors, 2 backlinks according to majestic and ahrefs. So very weak backlink profile. Not old age as well.

    How cum this possible? How cum domains with very few backlinks and not very old got high trust flow and citations flow?

    too much cum in one post...

    most domains like that have like 1 "good" link from some type of directory site which will give it decent metrics

    All of these metrics can be easily manipulated. I recommend looking at each domains backlinks to get an idea of how powerful the domain is.

    These are shit domains unfortunately. Throw metrics out the door, just look at links. Go for min 10 RD, 20 is what I go for. If there are contextual do-follow links from strongish sites then don't be bothered about TF/CF AC/DC EF/GH etc..

    Only 2 cum. Is that too much for you?


    Yeah that's what I do.

    Konker isn't a good place as there's a lot of crap on there being sold.

    TF / CF can be manipulated easily to give false impression of being a good domain.

    Even if it's not manipulated, these domains won't help you too much.
    Talking from my own experience, I bought like 3 years ago a domain with TF:36 , google PR 7 (back then was still reliable) with only 2 RD
    I was hoping miracles but nothing happened. When I've put a link from this to my money site, did not raised in serps not even a single spot, and it was on a medium competitive niche, nothing big.

    As a seller of domains, and of course user of my own findings (building my own PBNs) I have unfortunately found out that most of the time metrics do not mean shit. Most of the time they are just first time pointers to rule out thing or two and nothing else. Any decent domain find MUST be manually checked. I've found amazing domains with TF5, no spam whatsoever, legit sites, clean backlink profile and even clean archive history. Do you think someone will buy domain that I say it's TF5 in 99% of cases everyone will skip that. Why? I have no idea TBH. :)

    Powerful one back link is equal to 20 RD from blog comments. Instead of ranting and cumming on this thread :p go and spend your time to look at all those back links and it's quality.
