    Hi guys, if I'm gonna buy expired domains for make 301 red to my money site, should I check if that site has been spammed by the previous owner?
    So, 301 pass bad backlinks or not?

    Yes this should be checked!

    1) Check its anchor texts do discover its backlink profile. Make sure it is based on foreign language (chinese, russian).
    2) Check Archive.org and see it is not previously a PBN or already been redirected before.

    The higher the number of referring domains as backlinks, the better is the domain for 301.

    Yes, always verify if the previous domain has been abused or even banned, besides when you make a 301 re direct you need to see the anchor text the previous domain was using otherwise you may finish ranking for terms you are not interested in.

    Yes you for sure need to check that out, it would defeat the point of buying an expired domain if it has been spammed.

    Thank you guys.
    I just found a domain with 10 TF, 10 CF, 13 DA and 27 PA.
    It doesn't have many backlink, but they seems to be legit. Are niche related and branded. But i don't know if I can trust on this backlink. Moz say that the refferals comes from site having from 3 to 5 spam score.

    My money site have 0 TF, 0 CF, 24 DA and 26 PA.
    Do you think it's wothing buy this domain?

    I'm making many questions about the spam score of the backlinkers of this site.

    Well 10TF 10CF is not very good metrics. You can aim for higher.

    Thank you.
    With the main KW of my niche, that site is the one with the best metrics. I'm goona try with long tail KW
