    So I found this domain and I was thinking about keeping it for myself, it was an art based domain it had like 5-10k words of content on homepage and it was a legit event, no other owners, no 301's no 302's no chinese / japanese no PBNs no nothing.

    However it has:

    5.5K Backlinks
    70 Referring Domains


    I see people saying that high backlinks low referring domains is a nono while I see people saying that it doesn't matter, what matters is where they come from (if it's a spammy site.)


    Links from:
    sfgate
    sfweekly
    skyscrapercity
    design milk


    However it contains 1 sitewide link from a picture sharing website which is why it has so many backlinks.

    Worth or not picking up?

    IMHO metrics are just first pointers that help pick out and rule out bunch of domains, but without manual inspection and common sense there is no way to decide barely on metrics what is good and what not. Metrics do change often based on numerous factors. If domain is good, it's good. :)

    It's all about the quality of the backlinks.
    Also, it's very common to have a sitewide backlink, that will cause a very high value of total backlinks but it doesn't mean anything.

    Get the domain, probably there's some sitewide links? regardless, I would snap it for sure.
