    Hey guys, bought a good metric expired domain and registered it. The old niche has to do with motorcycles which is nothing to do with my local SEO niches. Could this domain be used for local seo and rank fine for easy search terms? Or would the power decrease, therefore would it be more beneficial to try to find someway to use it for its old niche?

    If you are not planning to use the site in the same niche then go ahead and repurpose it to your niche.

    The metrics will still apply to rankings when I restructure and change niche?

    You may have different niches but you could be targeting the same audience.

    Backlinks do get counted though may not be the same effect of that from a niche PBN

    It's amazing how from all the metrics you can choose, you pick exactly the ones which mean absolutely nothing. DA 12 can be on a domain with both 300 and 2 referring domains. And domain age has no impact on SEO at all.

    Power won't decrease, why would it decrease? If you want to use it as a PBN for your local money site, try to find some common ground and repurpose the domain. Or make a new money site and use it as a PBN domain for that one. Or create a money site out of that motorcycle domain (but I think it may be a tad weak for that) etc. Shittons of options.

    I guess the reason OP is asking this question is due to Google's recent announcement about expired domains losing their backlink profile, when re-registered and used for a completely different niche.

    That wasn't an annoucement. It was bullshit made on the run.

    I wonder how can you say it is good site when you have a 14-year-old Site with DA - 12, PA - 19 only,

    These domain values only depend on webarchive result and backlink analysis result.

    it should not contain any spam links.

    I strongly believe google is a world biggest liar.

    So don't believe it.

    True, anything they say related to SEO is usually bollocks, unless you go out there and test it yourself to verify it.

    Well I just bought a somewhat respected domain in googles eyes to create and my rank and rent SEO website. Would the domain be applicable if it had no correlation to the niche?
