    Hello everyone,

    I'm new in finding my own PBN domain. Trying my best though, I've stumbled to this domain having TF-13 AND CF-31.
    It has a decent metrics(don't care). Backlinks - checked, anchor links - checked, archive.org - checked. Looks good to me, since I followed tuts on how to check a domain for PBN.

    What I am concern is it's TF AND CF. Which I read on some tutorials that TF and CF = 1.8> is BAD.
    Any advice?

    Thanks if anyone can help.

    Note:
    I already registered it. Too bad if I can't use it.

    Anything above 1.8 stay away.

    I have the adult site. CF=36, TF=2.
    99% links are from relevant adult sites.

    Traffic from google is 15'000 hits daily.

    And i have a question: "Doest trustflow really matters?" :)

    I really don't know :p.. That's why I'm asking if my PBN is still on a safe area to use.

    You already got it, use it. If you see negative impact, remove your link and that's it.

    If you already said you manually checked backlinks profile, anchors, archieve.org and you realized the links are good then go for it. Always trust your manually work and not metrics. There are lot of good domains with quality backlinks but with low metrics.

    Ignore the TF/CF ratio - Majestic, much like any other third party, gives crazy results sometimes and is not to be trusted without question. I really can't understand those who say stay away when the ratio is greater than 1.8.

    Use majestic, ahrefs, etc to have an idea about the metrics, but your decision should be based on your manual check.

    Someone, somewhere, at some point, just woke up one day and said "TF/CF ratio should be 1.8, if not the world will collapse". WTF.

    Use your own judgement, if the domain is clean, you like the links and it has clean archive.org history there is nothing to stop you from using it. Search engines do not care about TF/CF ratio, they do not check it and it holds little to no value if the domain has good links pointing to it.

    It doesn't look great at first sight, but there's no better way to tell than inspecting the backlinks. TF and CF are for "orientation", it's not a specific rule.

    Check the backlinks as well as anchor text. If you see nothing bad there, get it... Just don't stress out on ratios or metrics that much.

    Thanks everyone!
    I did x4 check it just now. And I haven't seen any fishy links or anything. Checked the foreign language backlinks/anchor links - it's just a normal websites, no porn/pharma or any shits.

    I am using it.

    Yes, as long as it's not spammy links, you can use it. Don't just focus on the metrics from Majestic. Quality links are quality links, period!
