    Hello guys,today I found some expired domains with 15+ TF with brand anchors.So far so good.I checked archive and those sites was full of casino browser games. It is safe to change the "niche" entirely and post only game review on these domains?

    Also,another question that bother me.I found some domains with DA & PA 30+. I checked those domains on Majestic and the result was something like 5 TF & CF.I was really disappointed. Someone can explain why the difference is that big between those 2 metrics?

    Have you made the check on both domain and www.domain ? It's quite possible this will solve the issue :)

    Nope, I always check just "domain" ,without "www" . I will test this theory.

    What about my first question? Is it worth it ot it's better to stay out?

    L.E. I just found an' domain and I tested it. Metrics with "www" DA: 25; PA:0; TF: 0; CF:0 .
    Metrics without "www" : DA:25; PA:37; TF:2; CF:14;

    As I said in the first post,huge difference of authority between these two 3rd party metrics.

    In general, I don't trust Moz's metrics. They are flawed to a much greater end. If TF is no good and doesn't compare with DA/PA, I just ditch it. Isn't worth the risk.

    But yes, do your due diligence. If it gives you strong feel (after analyzing backlink profile and various other factors) that the domain is still a great pick, you can disregard TF, etc in such cases. Also checking the domain's PR is useful in this case.

    It certainly takes experience to decide and take decision solely on base of this. Also check archive.org. If it had even remotely questionable content (I check 2-3 indexes of each year it has to make sure that domain was not even used for PBN or such at some point in time), I'd ditch it again.

    Theyare completely two different metrics from different vendors.
    Each has its own flaws, one that says TF 20 will have a DA of 5 and vice versa.

    So to find out the best ones, Look at the backlink profiles yourself and register the ones that have some solid backlinks from good sites.

    That's what I do,if TF it doesn't compare with DA & PA I just go to the next one.

    Well,that's good information.I only checked archive (dot)org to see what domain containing.
    I dont know about changing the niche of one expired domain, I could test it but I cannot afford a fail.

    If they have casino games, chances are they have been spammed to death.

    Avoid them, it will just cause issues.

    I always check 3 factors: first TF/CF, if OK, then archive org to see if the last content is natural and connected with the domain, then check backlinks profile for anchor texts: if most of them are just a link or are a brand name, then for me the domain is OK. But if I see 1 backlink with bad words or they come from Chinese sites, I drop it. It means the has been used already for unclear purposes

    What skipperskipper said, except I personally put very little value in Moz or MajesticSEO metrics. It's not a life or death decision, I aim for domains with a good history and backlink profile (i.e. avoid domains with thousands of backlinks). Domain reg only cosst $8.50, so there's not much risk in messing up.

    So it's better to stay away from this kind of domains,got it.

    Isn't about registration fee.It is about the work I put into that site,money and time.If I choose a bad domain from start will be awful.

    after casino games you have 0,00001% for success
    don't see to CF/TF and DA/PA - just check backlinks, web.archive.org etc

    Yeah that's understandable. Last goose egg I bought was an expired PR3 DA33/34 domain that on archive.org looked legit, but later discovered it had a manual action. D'oh! Luckily you can detect within days if it's a penalized domain.

    Altering TF is a hard task and hence, it can be assumed that the domain is powerful and since it has brand anchors, I think it is safe to use.
