    When researching domains for PBN, which metrics are you using? From Root or Subdomain?

    Nowadays I'm finding that the metrics for non-www are much lower than when you use www.

    Since the majority of links are built to the domain with www. present - doesn't checking the stats for the www. version give a much more accurate picture?

    Any thoughts about this guy?

    Thanks!

    I just go for the one that has better metrics most the time (subdomain, url), never had any problems with it. Make sure that non-www/www are redirected to the domain itself to keep the link juice.

    I use Root Domain because I am very concern on the overall strength of the domain itself.

    Check both versions of the domain: domain.com as well as www.domain.com. You'll want to setup your site according to the version with the higher metrics (this tends to be the version the majority/strongest backlinks are pointing to). I do recommend that you manually verify this by looking at the top backlinks to see which version they are actually pointing to.

    Note: The www version usually (but not always) has the stronger metrics.
