    there is one thing about PBNs that I never really got. Google seems to have big problems to get that PBN issue handled.

    Why do they not simply devaluate expired domains? I mean they see the domain went over to godaddy. All content gone. In Gs eyes you get backlinks naturally for good content. So content gone --> old links dont count anymore. New owner has to start from zero.

    I see sooner or later that will be happening, right now it's still working great.

    That would be idiotic of them to do so. Sometimes, people just forget to renew or they give priority to a larger project, and then come back to that one, and just renew it. With all of the talk on here about buying expired domains, I would guess people think they have some golden ticket with them.

    I think because so far it's hasn't been that big of a problem. if more people continue ranking using PBNs, then the G team will start paying more attention to put a stop to it.

    All this would do is make every single domain registrar start a godaddy like pre-expiration auction system. It would be completely ineffective. I can think of basically no advantage to doing so, and lots of disadvantages for doing so.

    It should also be noted that google has no way of discerning when a backlink was made to a domain, minus their discovery times. Google would need to completely revamp their algorithm to accommodate this.

    That said, if google tried to do this, it would be a major clusterfuck and as a result, I hope against hope that they try it. The results would be incredibly unpredictable, and likely the exact opposite of their intentions.

    You better tell that directly to Google :)

    ...and probably, that is not on Google's idea, but since you posted it here, they may now consider making and algorithm for it. :)

    Bu, since it's working now, jump into it and jump out of it once it's not working anymore.

    People pick up expired/dropped domains for reasons other than SEO as well. Thousands of brandable domains drop each day and are picked up by small businesses and bloggers. Creditcards.com was dropped 4 times and look at it now, its ranking for gazillions of keywords.

    That wouldnt make sense at all. Say someone bought that domain, and wanted to make a legit website, but didnt want to start "from scratch"? Or someone was just gonna sell they're old site after realising they had no purpose for it anymore and it was up for auction? Then again, someone may just buy thier own domain back after they realised they forgot to pay for it. It would be a stupid decision to just devaluate domains that expired.
