    Hello,

    what would you choose if you own no PBN and your content is not in english?

    Is it better to choose a Expired Domain or an EMD for a amazon niche site?

    It's hard for me to get backlinks because my content isn't in english. I also don't have a PBN.

    I try to target keyword difficulty <25 keywords but which domain would you choose Expired domain or EMD?

    EMD benefit is almost non existent and those domains are much more trouble than they are worth.

    Expired domains on the other hand, based on their strength, can do day and night difference.

    Don't worry about the different language, that doesn't really matter. Especially if the domain is brandable.

    I would go with whichever is more brandable if you plan to make this a long term thing.

    The expired domain (as long as it has a clean backlink profile) will probably take less work to rank and is therefore the better choice from SEO perspective.

    If the expired domain is seemingly more powerful than a new domain then by all means, otherwise a brandable or an exact match for a smaller niche should be good enough.
