    Hey,

    I picked up a very good expired domain for my repair business 3 months ago. So today I wanna choose a hosting a set up the website. But is the linkprofile still valid? It has been offline for more than 3 months so I wouldnt be suprised if the link don't give any power anymore. Anyone gots some expereince with this issue?

    Cheers

    Check ahrefs open site explorer and manually check some of the backlinks listed there still exist

    Well they are, but the question is if they count because the domain as been picked up but not used for a couple of months. Ahrefs is showing domain rating of 41 and url rating of 15 so all is good still.

    Even if a particular domain is dead for a few years, ahrefs and majestic can see their links profile as well.

    And to answer your question, yes those links still count.

    As long as those links still point to your website, it is still valid.

    I don't think a few months' of being offline matters much if the domain has got solid reputation in Google. I would check its majestic seo stats first :)
