    Hello,

    We know that traditional PBN's are good if they were bought from auctions only. If they were dropped, links from them can hurt money site. Because for Google these newly registered domains are brand new sites even if they have high DA/TF metrics. Whether the same should not be said about expired Tumblr blogs?

    I just found a seller who offers me some expired Tumblr blogs with high TF and DA. But I found that these sites are without any content, and probably they were down sometime before this guy registered them.

    What has been your experience with PBN's from expired Tumblrs?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the answer. That's true. But it can work for diversification, and this blogs can give some link juice even through redirect, due to their high authority.

    The main question is about the effect of an expired subdomain.

    Everything in this thread is wrong.

    I will not hold back and call this statement an utter bullshit. No idea where newbies get this stuff from honestly.

    They did, years ago and those Tumblr still provide enough firepower. Google follows every link. If I could make Google "not see" link with simple 302 redirect, then my work would be much easier.

    There is a technique to get do follow links directly from those blog - your link seller must know this method, as otherwise, the redirect links generated by tumblr does not pass link juice imo, but a direct link would.
    Just ask your seller a little more in detail or ask for a sample, and examine whether the links are do follow or not.

    PBN and expired web 2.0 like tumblr, weebly, over-blog not same as my point of view. But you can use expired tumblr for link building. It's work. If you can make those perfectly.
