    hello, i am a newbie here. In recent days i try to build some PBNs for myself. i have try to learn some useful tips from BHW and thanks for every one who help me.

    Now, i have meet a question about buy old domain name for my PBN.

    For example,

    1st: i come to search the dropped domains online, found the domains pr >3
    2nd: i go to ahrefs to check the domain is spamed or not.
    3rd: i go to check the domains CF/TF by majestic.

    question: i always found the domains have pr >3, but i found no backlinks at ahrefs and the majestic CF/TF are N/A. Does the PAGERANK is True and reliable?

    Sorry, my bad english.

    Domains with PR but no backlinks in ahrefs are fake PR domains. Avoid them.

    Those are usually faked pr domains.

    Make sure they have a low BL but the one they have are from high Authority sites like Forbes, NY times etc. so you can forget about PR, DA and TF - that's working for me.

    There are two possible reasons:
    Fake PR or the domain have lost its backlinks. Do not buy domains like these, they have no value

    If neither Ahrefs or Majestic show any backlinks then chances are the PR is not real (has been faked) or is totally out of date (toolbar no longer matches real PR).

    Since PR now updates months, even a year, later, you shouldn't trust *any* PR indicator.

    It won't ever update again (at least the external updates).

    To add to what everyone else said, whenever you think of buying a domain, along with link analysis, you need to go to waybackmachine and check what exactly the site was used for before. After the recent mass deindexing drive by google, several SEOs just leave their PBN domains to expire.

    So, if the site was used as part of a PBN, never buy that domain.

    I dont know where this hatred for ex-PBN domains comes from... some of my best performing PBN nodes are built exclusively with domains that were previously used for a PBN... they're all domains.

    That's really interesting Tony, but surely there is added risk involved with domains that have a clear PBN past? Have you ever had trouble indexing such domains? What if the domain has had foreign language content in the past or pharmacy related content? Where do you draw the line?
