    Found a few domains scraping them using scrapebox/xenu which are available to register on namecheap. The backlinks are still retained, aswell as DA/PA/CF/TF/PR etc but the site isn't indexed in Google anymore.

    Have checked the wayback archives and it is looking legit.

    But wondering, if it's okay to buy it even if its not indexed in Google anymore and will it reindex retaining the metrics from before? and How long would that normally take?

    Cheers

    It should be ok if you checked link profile and webarchive.
    Another way to look at it is that if it didn't worked we wouldn't have so many providers for expired domains with authority links. ;)

    When you buy expired domains its very important for them to still be indexed or they would become useless.

    Old expired Domains are typically not indexed any more, simply because Google has nothing to index. It is completely normal.

    If you have a clean back links profile and history in the wayback machine, the domain will get very fast re-indexed as soon as you register and load content on it. Only very rare was the domain penalized and won't re-index.

    Just go for it.

    Just check if it was a PBN earlier. U can check that thru archeives . org
    If it was not a pbn earlier then sure u can buy it and it will get indexed for sure.

    If a PBN loses its PA/DA but retains links, is it of value or useless?

    That's a bit of a contradictio in terminis, because if it still has link it should also have DA. Moz might not pick them all up like Google, but I've never seen a domain with numerous backlinks and no DA. Theoretically it could be possible all the backlinks could come from domains which block rogerbot (Moz's bot useragent) but that's highly unlikely.

    Why ask theoretical questions like this anyway? I don't believe you've actually found a domain with many links but no DA.

    Hey Roger,

    Sorry I might have left something out..

    Moz shows DA/1 PA/1 and no Links...

    However if I google the URL, a few links come up.

    If the domain has been expired for a while, it will obviously always be de-indexed since Google has nothing to rank it for (no content/website).

    Though, if the domain has only been expired for a short time (eg a few days - a week) and it's not indexed at all, you may want to do a little more research before buying.

    I understood that from your posts, but it's very strange. Are you sure it aren't just general links like WHOIS websites etc. ? In my experience Moz doesn't pick them up, but Google does. If that's the case, you can ignore them because they're pretty much worthless anyway.

    If you PM me the website I can look further into it.

    I checked it on Majestic and it had 15,000 Links, open site explorer showed zero.

    It was a spammy bs domain, but still.. interesting how that happens.

    In that case it was recently spammed and dropped after a short while. OPE's crawler is just like the rest of MOZ still stuck in medieval times (a.k.a. slow as fuark).
