    Is it better to start with a fresh domain or to look for a good expired domain. Or maybe start with a new one and 301 redirect expired domain to it for juice?

    I think a good expired domain can do wonders. An undefeatable competitor in my niche using an expired domain and now he is standing in 1st position.

    Yep, a good expired domain can give you a decent head-start.

    The most important things to consider while using expired domain as your money site:

    1. Good relevant backlinks
    2. Clean archive
    3. Clean and relevant anchor profile
    4. Previous content of website should be unique and 100% readable
    5. Drop rate not more than 2
    6. DA and Pa should be 10+

    Expired domains are best to reduce the SEO workload.

    If you know how to find a good Expired domain then just jump for that. But, if you don't know and pick up the wrong domain then you won't get any result and you will just waste the time.

    I know some guys who are picking the fresh domains and then get some TF, CF, DA, PA and use them as PBN. I'm also trying to do that. But oh yes, I mostly use Old domain for PBN and I always try to go with fresh domain with my money site !

    Is it risky to deal with PBN's nowdays? Also, I found some advices to go with the fresh domain and to use expired for juice with 301 redirect. As it's a new stuff for me, is that a good advice? I mean, in the moment I've got two fresh domains bought, hosting for one of them, but I am also thinking about good expired domains at GD auctions, I am sure I can find a decent one if I keep looking. So with all of that, what would be the best combination? Thanks guys

    There's always a risk and my advise is don't put all your eggs one one basket.

    I decided I will go with the fresh site, with few expired domains connect with it. What is the best way to do it? For now, I just redirected two expired domains to my money site, but what's the best option do it?

    I just bought an expired domain for 10$ with PR 2, PA 32, DA 40, 6K backlinks with the best of them having domain rank 8-10, trust flow is bad, only 5, spam rank 0, citation 17. Are these good numbers? The domain name and links are connected with the niche I want to go in. What are my next steps?

    A good expired domain will likely allow you to rank faster than a fresh domain.

    The domain looks ok but there is more to determining the value / worth of a domain than just the stats. Based on the stats I would say it is decent to OK but could be bad if the backlink profile is bad and/or it has been used for spam in the past. You wouldn't know if the backlink profile was bad or if it had been used for spam in the past without looking past the stats though.

    PBNs themselves are not at all risky. They can be setup in a risky way, for example if you have them all registered to the same person and/or on the same host and nameservers or if they have a very specific footprint that clearly links them all. If the sites in your PBN have been setup in such a way that there are no obvious footprints to link them all then there is no reason that it would not be safe to use.

    A PBN can be just as natural as having a bunch of genuine sites linking back to your website.
