Is this PBN domain worth keeping? (indexed but fishy anchors)

    Hi,

    I noticed one of my PBN website has unnatural anchor text backlink profile: Too much exact match anchors backlinks are pointing to it. It's indexed tho, not penalized as I can see.

    DA-22, PA-35 , RD-102

    So is it dangerous for my money site to have backlink on this website? Would you let it expire or keep it as your PBN?

    Thanks in advance!

    Is the high exact match anchor text on your PBN the same KW you're going to use to link to your moneysite?

    No it's different. Niches are completely different, but in similar category (technology)

    There are 2 top of exact mach anchors backlinks of this PBN site, 1st is 11%, 2nd is 10%, then comes domain and naked URL anchors, then LSI, partial anchors etc.

    This kind of anchors is not a problem. However is the domain scraper or from auctions? If it's scraped, then it definitely is not clean. If from auctions, then it depends. Feel free to shoot me a PM and I can tell you whether it's okay to keep.

    Not an big time expert, but I would have kept that backlink. I believe the numbers you shared should not harm you as of now. Keep a check, if you notice the graph continuously growing exact match then i'd say its a red signal.

    The numbers don't tell you if a domain is spammed or not, AKA. The only way is to have a look at the actual backlinks, that's why Nargil asked for the domain name. RD102 is pretty high, so if it isn't a domain that did cost $XXX or at least high $XX at an auction, it probably has a really spammy backlink profile. It's not like you are finding free and clean expireds in the RD100 range easily, 99% are either instantly re-registered (and often auctioned) after dropping or crap.
