    I know this is highly debatable, but what are most of you guys using as minimum stats for PBNs now?

    I used to use TF, but I'm using PA RD and ahrefs DR more now. I generally try to pick stuff up 40+ DR with some referring domains.

    What about you guys?

    Imo TF> PA. Also, you shouldn't rely strictly on RD. Check the links and make sure that there at least 2-3 good links. 40 RD from spam or no power links are useless.

    Oh I meant 40 DR like the Ahrefs rating :)
    But yes I think the RD is important too. Just trying to decide what to settle for on expired domains

    For me the most important stats are Ahrefs URL rating (homepage), Domain rating, Majestic trust flow, and Referring domains

    I used Ahrefs DR metric and all my PBNs domains are DR 40+. Don't care about majestic or moz becuase they don't index 10% of what Ahrefs has.

    How about your rank ? Can be ok on first page ? We use 35 PBN , but just rank from 11-50, but cannt come to the first page . Do you have any idea ?. And most of our pbn's dr is less than 40 .

    Metrics are around homepage TF 10-20 and homepage PA around 15-25. We don't actively track DA as it is easily manipulated and most domains over DA20 were previously abused/spammed.

    It uses a comparative and contextual based algorithm so I suppose it's harder to manipulate
