    Hey Guys,

    I'm building a PBN and I've made a list of about 100 decent sites.
    All have 20TF, 25 DA and 10 RD minimum each and clean profiles.
    Some have high TTF in my field (gaming), but these domains are about 15TF, 15DA and 5RD.

    Some used to be used as PBN's, but they haven't spammed them so i'm assuming they are ok to use now (likely a noob idea).

    My question:
    If I was trying to rank my Gaming site, should I buy 100 slightly below average metric but high TTF in 'Video Gaming' sites or 100 websites with the best metrics I can find with completely random Topic Trust Flows?

    I'm confused whether it would be better to have:
    A) A lot of weak relevancy coming in from decent domains
    B) A lot of Strong Relevancy from weaker domains

    Note: I'm just using TTF just as a guideline for the kind of links coming in, not set in stone.

    Bit of both. TF means jack in my mind. RDs are where it's at. Even TTF doesn't matter that much for me.

    I think you can do both but most people prefer relevant domains. For me, weak relevancy from decent domains are also fine as long as you create a content that is relevant to your niche.

    Do NOT re use former PBN domains. They either got manual penalty and/or deindexed in the past.

    Or the niche they were built for became over saturated and no longer viable or the owner didn't know what they were doing and gave up after a couple of sites or any number of other reasons to be honest.

    I would much rather look at the link profile and providing it is clean and the historical content is not suspect I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

    Well could be either.....the point it there is some doubt and potential harm to your site if it is a a former PBN domain and i guess up to you the risk you are will to take! Personally, after losing a $100 a day site for this exact reason.....not a risk i would take again!!

    from my experience it is better 50+ websites with medium metrics
