    Hi there, I'm looking at an expired domain, it has 260,000+ backlinks, but 1,000+ are being deleted like each day. It looked a trustworthy website. Also all the backlinks (well 99.99%) are from one site which is a .com version of the same site.

    I'm trying to rank a site completely unrelated keyword to the niche it came from, do you think its strong link network already would help me rank for an unrelated keyword? or am i wasting my time with this one? thanks. oh and it has a pr of 3.

    The site was for a radio site! :S so should i be careful with copyright as it's their brand name?

    get the site live immediately with rich content and hope you get on a hold on the deletion of backlinks.

    thanks for your reply, so google is deleting them because there's no content?

    If all the links are from the dotcom version your likely to lose them all. As the owner of the .com version deletes or changes the links which pointed to the version you are looking at. If you could buy it and get it up immediately it might be worth it, but is it a trademarked domain? And why go for a domain completely unrelated to your niche, especially if you want to build a brand.

    Hi thanks for your comment, for my site it doesn't matter what the domain name is, and it's not for a brand. I'm a noob at this, i just heard that buying a domain with a strong link structure already would be benificial when trying to rank for other keywords. Please correct me if i'm wrong :p

    I just found out the url is the company's name, is this dangerous territory?

    Yeah that is a bit of dangerous territory, especially if the brand is trademarked. I would imagine that if the company is still active they won't be happy with you jumping on the expired domain and using their brand name. At the very least they will ensure they remove all the links from their dot.com and at the worst they will take legal action against you. Be careful.

    Ok - Many links are indexed by the URL they are found on.
    On social media/bookmarks and some other sites these URLs are transient. They will move down the canonical framework of the website and eventually be either archived or deleted.

    General principle though - when you buy a website start using it ASAP - remember that unless you use the exact same canonical structure you will have a lot of 404's to your inner pages then you need to choose to redirect or redirect / ignore / or add the missing URL's with the same address but your own content on.
