    I might want to buy a website but I'm not sure if it'll be a good investment. The idea would be to use it for a PBN.

    The non-WWW version has a TF of 10 and a CF of 30

    The WWW (the version the website has always used) has a TF of 40 and a CF of 45.

    If I buy the domain and set it up as WWW will the non-WWW metrics impact the results?

    How many referring domains to each? If the non-www only has a few links it will only have a small impact.

    It's just based on the incoming links. Small number went to non-www but majority to www.

    I agree on this. If better backlinks are pointing to www then make sure the domain is set to www.

    Go with WWW without any doubt if the link profile is clean. TF 40 sounds really good :D

    With TF, always check "http://www.domain.com" - The TF on "www.domain.com" is heavily inflated and I can sell you TF35 domain on www.domain.com for $10, so yeh, ignore that. For the total number of referring domains I use "domain.com". Still, TF is just a number, whether the domain is really worth it or not comes down to the backlinks.
