    Thanks to @Nargil for motivating me and I love to read his articles on expired domains, however this domain I ddint bought it from him, so I done my own research everyday I was looking at this website (https://www.expireddomains.net/backorder-expired-domains/) and finding some good metric domain, and at last I found one with stat as follows

    TF: 5
    CF: 45

    Hopefully now going to build an affiliate website on top of it, as I checked the domain history it has around 200 articles from web archive. so through domain Recovery tool i will build this website and hopefully start earning

    Any suggestion/advice - welcome

    RD is a really important factor here. Feel free to shoot me the domain and I can take a look at it if you want.

    I wouldn't call it a great domain and TF is just a small piece to the puzzle. That said, no harm in trying as long as you learn from the mistakes made. I think you might have to dig a bit deeper. CF isn't much of a metric and it can be easily built up even with spammy or low authority links.

    1. Since you are using it to build a money site, go through the archive.org to see its not been spammed by the Chinese websites
    2. Another thing you need to check is the topical flow (sometimes Majestic's topical flow isn't right, but it can help to give broader picture)
    3. One more thing with expired domain content is that now a days many ppl (re) use that content. So check if the content isn't already indexed
    4. A simple way to check if the domain wasn't used as a PBN or by a Chinese site is to click on the Anchor Text section in Majestic which gives you a quick cloud of the anchor texts. Hopefully you don't see any Chinese or spammy anchor texts there
    5. Also check if there are other variations of the website (.org .net and .com) What i notice with expired domains is that the previous webmaster would simply migrate to another tld, so the content might still be in use
    6. For RD, if you are going to build links to the site, then I think it should be ok
    Good luck.

    This metrics does not sound too great to me. The RD and what kind of links and anchors build to the site before you bought it is very important. As @Nargil said, shoot him the domain before investing heavily into it. He might be able to see what you over look, therefore saving you time and money.

    After every said and done. If the domain is great. I wish you luck in your journey.

    Do you think a aged domain, like 17 years old with no DA, nothing, its better than a new domain?

    Oh well, domain is obviously spammed, terribly spammed, with "longchamp bag" anchors. RD on this one is 500 and it's an info domain.

    To all the newbies - You will never EVER find a clean top TLD or .info domain with RD40+. Never. Let alone 500+ or anything. When I am going through scraped domains I automatically remove everything with RD50+. Why? Because there's no chance of finding anything clean.

    @Nargil is it possible to share your method on how you check for spam backlinks?
    As I mentioned, one of the way I use is to look at the anchor text map, which is quicker. What do you think about that?
    Sometimes even some "good looking" domains end up getting trashed because I find some Chinese or drug related keywords to the domain and the URL's don't initially show up on the backlinks page.

    Gotta say, these Chinese websites are a domain killer.

    @Nargil Does an expired domain keep its age?

    I mean, it wasn't that hard with this one. There was nothing besides the classic fashion spam anchors. Even if anchors look good at first glance, always check historic index. You would be surprised how much shit you can find there. I do not focus on backlinks that much. If it's an obvious spam, then that's pretty clear straight away. With classic scraped domains I do not spend too much time on backlinks to be honest. Just take a fast look at backlinks tab and you can evaluate whether or not they are okay. Most of the time, if anchors are fine, then backlinks are fine as well and vice versa.

    I do not care, because age of the domains does not matter whatsoever. I have no idea how many times should I say that, apparently, I have to start some guru blog so people will finally understand.
