    The choice I'm having a hard time making is this.

    Do I spend 2-3 hundred on a domain that has a backlink profile and some pa/da/tf from a trusted seller of these domains or fresh reg?

    Im not in love with the domain that has the link history and its not exactly the niche I'm going after but it's close.

    The fresh reg males more sense when you look at it but obviously I'm starting from scratch.

    What's your opinion and reasoning? Does spending the money on the expired domain pay? Or do I invest the money saved in the fresh reg and buy links?

    Thanks BHW

    Ignore the PA/DA/UFO/TF of the expired domain. What are the QUALITY of the backlinks? I made a site on a niche with a horrible name, because it had 5 GREAT backlinks(Bloomberg business, INC, CNN Money) that I couldn't easily/cheaply get on my own. So obviously that helped me because the RDs we're relevant to the niche of the site.
    Now I wouldn't have felt as happy about making that site on a new domain IF the backlinks weren't great AND niche relevant.

    If you're going for the long-term, get the name that is important to you, and that you feel is most brandable.
    Do you feel the backlinks of the expired domain are something you couldn't get?
    I bet you ha e an answer now.

    If you can find domains with good metrics and backlinks then you can go with expired domains.

    Here you have to check their PA, DA, CF, TF, backlinks and mainly where are they coming from. And also it should be related to your target niche.

    Thanks guys. The links aren't anything special. Lots of pinterest and other blogs.
