    Hello guys.
    I just found an expired domain who have very good backlink profile.The problem is,he was 302 to another domain for years. Is it worth to buy it for my PBN?
    Sorry for the noob question,I'm new to PBN building.Recently I had just realized that finding good domain is pretty hard.

    Thanks

    If the website that it was redirected to was not spammed, then it's fine. Tho usually good websites gets snatched the same day you find them, and as I see you've posted 1 day ago. Re-check ahrefs, whois, hosting history, wayback and screens and if it's all good then buy it.

    I think you misunderstood.The expired domain that I want to buy was used as redirect to another random site( EXPIRED DOMAIN --> 302 -->random domain).I already checks his history and looks fine,the only thing that bothers me is that the expired domain is used as redirect for years. I dont know if that is bad or no big deal.

    In my experience you can still use it. I've used some like that without an issue.

    I was just about to post that it shouldn't make any negative problems for you but it isn't something I have seen a lot of people talk about.

    It would be great to read about this if you decide to make a quick write up of your experience in a couple months when you have had the chance to put it to use.

    Also good look with it all.

    I tried it with a parasite site, I climbed some positions but was not as significant as thought

    302 can resolve this error by updating their system records for your account following a deliberate change of URL, whether this change is temporary or permanent.

    The most important is what backlinks the domain has itself, not where it was linked or pointed to.

    302 doesn't pass any link juice to the another domain, so the site has potential if it's indexed in google and has backlinks and other metrics.
