    PBN questions:

    wondering if it's possible to find non-spammed expired domains with 70+ referring domains using domripper or expired domain miner?
    seems like anything good has already been snatched.

    my other question is: what do you think of domains that have 10 or 15 referring? waste of time or effective?

    It's definitely possible if you have the time and resources to handle to crawl. There are millions of domains expiring every day and there will always a little gem waiting for you to pickup so don't lose the hope.

    It doesn't work in that way. Having 70+ referring domains doesn't mean the domain is quality and having a few doesn't mean its unworthy. What counts the most is the quality of referring domains.

    You can measure the referring domains power on the expired domain's trustflow.

    Quality of the referring pages not domains alone there's a lot of crappy domains out there that have pages with great links to them.

    Without getting into a discussion about why you would actually want 70+ RD's - yes, it's possible. My last list of giveaway domains had one or two with >70 referring IP's, and the next batch probably will too.

    I don't think in and of itself it's a number that means anything, though - except for reduced overall degradation when one or two links drop off.

    right, that's one thing I am worried about. The fewer referring domains, the more it hurts when one drops off.
    let's say a domain has 3 great backlinks, from foxnews, nj.gov, and usatoday.com
    it also has 8 other backlinks, but these are not so great. They are not spam, they are natural links from low authority websites.
    is it worth it to buy this domain for PBN?
    I don't want to waste my time with useless domains because it costs money+time to set up each domain, you have to buy hosting, you have to write content. so I would rather buy something that has a lot of referring domains because the time cost is the same either way.

    Whether it's worth it or not is only a question that only you can answer. A lot will depend on obviously how much the domain costs and what sort of access to capital you have and the opportunity cost of your time.

    If you're tight on cash, then obviously you have to be more selective. If you got money to burn, then you can play fast and loose. Same with the amount of free time you have.

    In your above example, if it's a domain that's a Godaddy closeout you're picking up for $40-50 then it may be worth to pick up. If it's $200-300 then maybe not. Again the only person that can make that decision is you.
