    It seems that the most important factor when buying sites for your pbn is a clean back link profile that has good authority links.

    How does one determine whether a site has good authority links ?

    What else must you look out for ?

    They say that pr is pointless as google stopped updating that ?

    Use PR to help you sort through all the BS domains. Then go through each to check the links at ahrefs or similar place. Good quality authority links are from good websites that relate to your niche. Links from a beer blog are more-less worthless if your site is about whales.

    I do not agree pbn sites normally do not correspond to your niche, you adapt them when you buy them. They are random sites, so to find authority links with your niche keywords that link to your pbn site is going to be difficult.

    Yes it is very difficult, but you should give it a try. If I am building a pbn, they are not "random sites" that I am buying. If my moneysite is about bowling, I wouldn't buy a domain with a bunch of electronics links to it. I would rather find a pr1 domain about a dudes bowling league with links from large bowling websites.

    Analyzing the link profile is hard and takes some experience. I know that you can spot spam if there are a bunch of links pointing to the domain coming in from random sources(not niche relevant) regardless of the anchor text.

    Check for anchors as well and if you see any chinese or foreign language anchors then it's best to leave it alone, that is a big flag for spamming. Also if there are a lot of similar anchors it is likely that the domain was spammed. Even if the link building was genuine it could've been penalized for too many exact match anchors.

    Make sure the domain is indexed in google, use: "site:domain.com" and if you see results from that domain then it is indexed. Although sometimes a domain if expired for a long time may not appear in the serps that doesn't necessarily mean it's bad but this changes if the domain has expired recently.

    Check for metrics, DA, PA ( at least > 10 ). Also check TF and CF (google the analyzing requirements for those as I don't remember exactly what it was, in this case it is more about the ratio of TF to CF than their value by themselves)

    There is a big learning curve with expired domains, if you're trying to rank a site and have a $500 budget set aside for a PBN then check out accelerator_dd's thread, he sells them for $37 a pop(registration and whois protection included) and when you buy 4 you get 1 free. The best thing about this seller is that he will fetch you niche relevant domains that are high quality. As of now google ranks your site if the links are coming in from quality domains but probably in the future this will change and niche relevant PBNs will have the upper hand. Instead of building out a huge blog network, use 10 - 15 blogs per site that are niche relevant with strong links.

    Good luck.
