    Hi everyone,

    I came across plenty expired domains with a strong and clean backlink profile.
    Only downside so far ist that those domains were redirect in the past.

    Most of these domains are with hyphens and the owners redirected to one without hyphens.
    Some of the domains where the redirect landed are also dropped or about to. Anyway the target domains mostly lack backlinks.

    So are those expired domains that have the backlinks and were redirected still worth to register or should I avoid them?

    They are worth it. It will take time to reverse the redirect, but it will start working as normal and Google will accept backlinks. It may take months, be aware.

    Lots of it depends on how big were domains redirected to.

    If the redirect is "natural" - like in your example hyphens to no hyphens - its perfectly fine.
