    Hi,

    I'm building a pbn, and when searching for expired domains I can find some good ones with good metrics and BLs, but when I check them with webarchive I can see they have hosted some chineese content during a few months in the past.

    Do you register such domains? Do you think they will be considered as spammy once registered? or do you let them apart.

    Thanks for your thoughts

    You can register them and sell on SEDO. Sometimes Chinese *buy the domain name as investment.

    I can't register the Chinese domain for English site.

    Also it can't be spammy once registered.

    I'd rather avoid it to be safe since there are so many good metrics that have been spammed/abused by Chinese sites.

    Nope, don't even go there. Chinese sites tend to get spammed up hard!

    Know how it feels to leave what could be a good domain but it's almost always better to drop it out and continue the search.

    Most of those domains are a no-go. There is the occasional gold in the haystack but it won't be worth your time looking , unless you're chinese.

    Try translating some of them with g translate and the results might shock you

    Most of them are bad. Most. You should translate the content and see what's the site about. And check with various metrics to see is it spammed or not, what is the backlink profile and so on. Most of the times, I avoid those.

    I bought 2 of these domains these week. The backlinking profile was perfect and it was the only problem: Few month of crapy chinese text on it (no chinese backlink).

    So, 3 days after I rebuilt the old website on it, they were indexed in Google.

    I am genuinely surprised that went well. Let us know if it kills your target property.

    I do not recommend, bad things can happen to your target site.

    In such case, I will not register that domain. Don't ever buy website with chines content or backlink
