    I find a lot of expired domains with backlinks from directories, the backlinks are TF 15+ and the expired domains are TF 20+, DA 20+ RD 20+. This directory backlinks have any power or not? Should i use this domains?

    Try to find other expired domains at first and use these primarily for supplementary PBNs. However, most crappy directories have already been shut down in the last few years or deindexed and the remaining ones are still relevant and somewhat quality ones. Not every directory backlink is bad. If the PA and TF on the page where the link is placed are good enough as you mentioned then I wouldn't tell you to throw them away always. But try to find expired domains with more diverse organic looking link profiles first.

    Most of the expired domains are not indexed in google but that does not mean it can't get indexed again once the new site is up. This particular domain is from 2007 and in 2014 no one registered so it's normal to be deindexed. We should not use fresh domains that expired a few days - a month ago that are not indexed in google not old ones. If a fresh expired domain is not indexed in google that means penalization or something like that

    So I just took a look using Majestic... And just personally I probably wouldn't use this domain. The metrics may be high, but they are Majestic's metrics not Google's. We know that Google doesn't value directory links, infact they probably look at them in a pretty negative light so it's likely to do more harm then good.

    It's not a once in a lifetime type domain so you will definitely come across better before too long.

    Yeah I know that! It is better to get an expired domain which is already indeed in google than an expired domain that was removed from Google already (may be partially penalized). I just let you know the fact then If you still want that domain, better you wait till the Google rolls out its next update.
