    I understand that for backlink profile, it should not be spam such as virgin, vigra, etc. But for the backlink profile, does it needs to be alot of backlinks? Does it means referring domains? So for example, 100+ 1000+ etc backlinks (from ahrefs, etc)?

    What if it is a niche related with PA&DA-25+, CF&TF-15+ but not much backlinks, maybe referring domains around 10+? Is this ok?

    Both referring domains and backlinks are adjacent to each other, you cannot have 1000 backlinks form 1 or 2 domains, then it will look like a spammy one.

    PA&DA can be easily manipulated but I think the CF&TF will not be that easy to work around and increase them. So if a domain have good CF/TF ratio and not spammed, just go for it.

    I look for da over 20 and tf over 15. I then check the history of the site using archive.org. I then use vaultscraper to resurrect the site with all its old content intact. I don't waste time with wordpress or writing content

    Even if the niche is general, if it has high metrics it will boost up your site really well.

    You can have links from sites that are not in your niche and you will rank if links are good, trust me. You dont need a single niche link. But, you know, it is better to have niche links to stay under the radar as long as possible

    I prefer the more general domains with higher metrics so I can link build more niches from them. With that said, if I happen to stumble across a great niche specific domain I don't hesitate to pick it up either.

    For the referring domains - 10+ is fine as a minimum. I've found that domains with 10 - 75ish referring domains have a better chance of having a clean backlink profile than those with a really high (like 1000). Most sites aren't going to acquire 1000 backlinks naturally.

    For the metrics, you really have to be careful there. It looks great to find a site with great DA on the surface, but remember that it can be easily manipulated. You have to just look at the entire domain's history as a whole and make a decision.

    A backlink from a DA 15 site with a clean history is better than a spammed DA 50 link.

    I always use a combination of both Niche and High Metric domains, which helps in Ranking and as well as staying under the radar..
