    It is impossible to say without looking at the domain. If the domain has really good backlinks from authority domains and it is 100% clean, it might be ok. It looks spammy from those stats, and I would be amazed if it was clean.

    What ways do you think you can earn from any domain? An expired domain is simply a domain. All methods are open to you.

    Your welcome, I am glad it has helped you.

    Going from rock to finance, I would 301 everything to the homepage unless you can create pages about finance which have a music twist.

    There are plenty of guides on BHW, your best bet is to follow some of them.

    OK thanks :) But then do I still restore the old website, wait for it to rank on its old keywords and only then 301 all pages to the home page (and do I delete them since they're unrelated to the new topic)?

    OR do I buy the expired domain and do a 301 to the homepage right away, without restoring it and waiting for it to rank on old KWs?

    Thank you

    Hi brother,
    I thank you for the guides you publish enriching blackhatworld.
    I wanted to ask you for advice. I explain to you. I would like to make my PBN but I don't know which expired domains to buy. My business is focused in Italy and therefore I would like to create an Italian PBN (with Italian backlinks and Italian content). but it is very difficult to find good expired Italian niche domains. Is it worth pursuing with this goal or could I also do it in English?
    Do you think there is much difference in creating an Italian PBN or an English PBN?
    I wait your feedback

    Using English or other language/nationality domains for a PBN is fine, they work just as well. I have domains from all over Europe and South America which I have repurposed, and they work nicely for me. You could also use Italian content on them. I use English content on my domains for my English money sites without any issues.

    There was a case study released on BHW by @tiiberius in the last couple of weeks, which showed how effective they can be. Might be worth checking out.

    Ok thanks, I guess once I eventually get the domain I'll build it to how it was then wait and see. It's in google index but just to a registrar holding page

    My answer was based on you saying that you had previously restored content and it was ranking again.

    I would restore, wait for it to rank, then 301 page redirect where possible and 404 redirect the rest.

    Honestly, if there are no 301 page redirects that I can do, the niche is not even remotely close to the niche I want for my money site and the backlinks are likely not going to do any good anyway. So I would rethink the niche for the money site or move on to the next target.

    Thank you.

    I always have less hassle and lose the least amount of money by building out first and waiting to find out if the domain is any good or not, before spending $'s on new content and link building.

    Thanks. I am happy to answer questions in the post, it keeps my inbox uncluttered and helps others who may have the same question.

    Bing, Google and Ahrefs all have a different link database to each other, and they all report links differently. So you would expect to see different totals reported in each tool, that is normal. Same if you checked your domain with Moz or Semrush or any other SEO tool that has a backlink database.

    Ahrefs has the 2nd biggest backlink database behind Google, so that is a good indicator of how the domain is doing since you rebuilt it. But the true acid test is if you are starting to rank for any of the old content?

    Also, it should be noted that Google does not show you all of the links which it has credited to your domain, it shows a sample. So it will always be different to what Ahrefs or any other tool shows.

    For me, I use the fact that links are appearing in GWC and that the old content is starting to rank again, as indicators that the expired domain is gaining trust with Google and ready for me to repurpose in to a money site or something else.

    HTH

    How have your expired domains performed with the May Google core update? Some people in FB groups mentioned this update impacted their expired domains.

    Tks for the answer, very impressed.

    Now has only three questions confused, so on most of the case, the homepage site has the largest quantity of backlinks, so for the rebuilding work of homepage,I should keep the same as before, or I should rebuild from what my money site looks like, which means just follow my design.

    And the second question is about the site layout, design, I already read all of your message on this thread, for your method, simply split into two stages, one is rebuild, one is creat new content after the wait. So for the rebuild stage, the layout could follow my new design which is different from before, but the title, meta-description,page content,page content image,page content outbound link & interior link.

    OR, I should keep the layout, design structure which is the 100% same as before, then only could change the design on the repurpose stage.

    Your welcome and I hope it works out for you. As long as the domain is clean, it is very straight forward to get success from an expired domain.

    Yes, you will need to renew the domain. GWC = Google Webmaster Console

    Thank you

    Thanks

    Mine have all been fine, in fact they have done nicely from this update so far.

    Please see answers below.

    I either keep the design the same (as long as it does not break too many modern design rules), I build it out on my new design (if the niche is a fit), or a put the content on a basic, simple WP theme. Wait for it to age and then convert to my new money site.

    My answer above partly answers this. It very much depends on the site you have found and if it is a direct niche fit to your money site. If it is a direct fit, I use the new design and simply add the content. If it is not, I build it out as described above, wait for it to age and then convert to the new money site design.

    You said you had 3 questions, but I only spotted 2, did I miss one?
