    Hi guys,

    I just found a really awesome domain from a person who used to write for enterpreneur, huffpost etc. This person got some nice links from said sites to her homepage.

    Now the domain is her full name. It has TF of 25 and CF of 28. Moz stats are not too high, though PA is 28. The domain has clean history and was used only by her.

    Now my question is, would you go for it and buy it? Please keep in mind that the domain name is her name. Do you think using it for a PBN is somewhat unethical?

    Regards!

    Of course you go for it. It's not unethical, she let it expire, someone will do the same thing. And it's not like she's the only person with that name. That being said it's probably more than likely already been abused. Register it and let me take a look, I'll let you know if it's worth it.

    Thanks for the replies. I bought it but checked the history before with waybackmachine - no sign of abuse as far as i can see. I am going to try it out, we'll see. Thanks!

    I bet this is not a trademarked name so I'll go for it. You can also sell it back to her at a mark up if she wants it. :)

    Yeah well I don't even know if it's possible to trademark a name. Plus, I am not in the US, so I don't think that this should be a problem. At least I hope so :)

    Yup that is what he is saying, and it is true because he read it on Charlie Floates blog.

    None of us ever know what he's saying. Check out his other posts. They're just as wacky.

    More than one person can have the same name. Buy it. Plus nobody will ever see it.

    You should buy it, it already has a good start so why not? Some of us has more than 1 domain . I think the domain name would not be much issue.
