    Hi,

    So i found this domain which has the following metrics:
    [​IMG]

    I have checked all the backlinks and they are all from a high authority site e.g BBC.co.uk, BBC.de, BBC.es. All the exact same website but with their country domain ending. I presume they all have individual link juice regardless of having the same website design.

    Heres where i am confused, everything looks good, all backlinks look solid with quality link juice but when checking with majestic for this domain there is 0 TF 0 CF :eek:

    Should i still proceed with this domain for my PBN?

    Are the links contextual? What does the anchors look like? Have you checked the domain history on archive.org?

    If it passes your manual spam check it seems good

    Although I would suggest using ahrefs instead of moz for checking links, the latter has a much smaller data set.

    The anchor text is "Learn more" for all backlinks but in different languages depending on the backlink domain.

    Archive.org looks great, no changes or funky chinese jibberish.

    I have checked ahrefs too and looks similar to moz, the only thing im confused in the majestic TF CT being 0 when everything else looks perfect.

    Personally I would leave it. Unless you can manually verify that each of those backlinks are very high quality do follow links from relevant sites.

    Are the links contextual? Are the links the same type of links you'd want pointing to your site?

    I have no idea why the tf is 0, I just know that it's not always reliable, but it does explain why no one else would have picked it up so far, because every one would have filtered it out.

    You could set up an account with godaddy for the freedomain and $1/month hosting plan. If the domain sucks, then you can atleast use the hosting for something else.

    You could also just pm the domain to @Nargil and he will tell you if it sucks dick

    I bet that the domain has only a few referring C class IPs compared to the total number of referring domains. :) Because, obviously, those domains were a part of the backlink network (won't call that a PBN) and these are often built on the same shared hosting.

    Yeh and DA isn't exactly helpful metric to mention whatsoever. That domain can have 1RD or 1000RD as far as I know. That should be the primary metric when you are not showing the domain name. Especially because it's not a metric and it can give us a better idea of how good the domain is. Definitely more than DA or PA or any other "I-just-made-this-shit-up" metric.

    All in all, I can assure you, that domain is 99% utter shit and 75% penalized.

    Nope, checked ahrefs again they have their own C class IPs different network for the backlink domains and has 28RD. Yeah i dont really take much notice with these metrics either but i have just above 200 domains in my collection (which isnt alot compared to what is achievable and my future life goal) but this one was weird considering everything else checked out fine from my checks.

    Lets see what comes out of it if anything.
