    The website only has a PR 1 but it also has (according to Ahrefs.com):
    URL
    Rank: 7.2
    Ahrefs
    Domain Rank: 98

    Backlinks: 275 K

    Referring
    Domains: 40

    I'm going to add articles to the site and then add my sites links. Can I receive good backlinks from this domain?

    Thanks. -larcha

    It seems like you bought a spammed domain since you only have 40 referring domains but 275k backlinks. Did you check the link profile?

    spam.com?

    Couldn't you just buy a domain, spend $15 on fiverr and have the same thing for probably a fraction of the price.

    I was going to post the same comment that thinktank1 posted until I saw he posted it already. With 275 thousands links coming from only 40 referring domains is an automatic red flag that tells that this site/domain was heavily spammed. How much did you spend on this domain? My suggestion would to be to do your due diligence in the future before making any further domain name or website purchases as it can be very easy to lose money. Just be careful and if you ever have any questions there's plenty of people on here including myself that I'm sure would be more than happy to help you make a good purchase.

    Instead of using that site as a buffer\article page, would the spammed backlinks negatively effect him if he 301'd that to his money site? I'm just thinking instead of tossing it away, could he suck the link juice out of the domain without potential of a penalty?

    Here is a good pr 2 domain hxxp://adelitamadrid.com. You can find it on godaddy for $11. It has non english backlinks though.

    I would start with a fresh site, or do more research next time. You are probably not going to be very effective with that site.

    Most likely those BLs came from a forum footer link, or a blog footer link
