    Hi everyone,

    I found a domain of DA 24, PA 35, TF 12, CF 32, CF/TF 2.9, PR 4

    Based on ahrefs, it have 107 RD & 1.8k backlinks.

    There are backlinks such as:
    1) huffingtonpost.com, but the link is not in the article, it is near the bottom of the page, under the title "Around the web"
    2) travel.cnn.com, in one of the inner pages of travel.cnn.com together with other links in an article.
    3) behance.net, in the inner pages of https://www.behance.net/gallery/etc..../etc...

    And many other legit backlinks from other domains and pages.

    I have checked the anchor texts of the domain - no spam / signs of PBNS (Last captures is May 2015)
    I also checked through archive.org, there is no signs of spam too, a legit platform business.

    Can someone give me some advices if this domain is ok for a PBN? Despite the high CF/TF?
    Also, will the link from huffingtonpost.com disappears as the link is not in the article of the inner pages? Does it matters?

    Thanks, appreciate your help!

    That is a good domain, I'd register it immediately. Good metrics, natural backlink history and had PR at one point.

    Does it affect if the name of the domain is e.g. "blacksomethingsomething"? Which sounds like a shaddy and illegal business name.

    But in fact, it is a legit local business name and there is also a local google business listing when searched for the name in local google. Thanks!
