    New to the expired domain game, was looking to use site as actual selling point of selling online services. I am looking to purchase this expired domain that has a good amount of back links (seems most are random/irrelevant anchor link/texts/pages) but wasn't sure if it was penalized and no point in trying to salvage. Should I go ahead, purchase and start disavowing bad links while building up tiers, go on and have a normal site life? Or would this just be a good link juice redirect? Or maybe none of the above?

    Any suggestions and comments are welcome, thanks!

    Backlink profile looks good to me, but make sure you check the following:

    - used anchor texts
    - archive with archive.org/web
    - number of drops with whois.domaintools.com
    - those .edu and .gov links whether they are legit or spam

    If you see anything strange, like too many irrelevant anchor texts, 3 or more drops, different web history, just leave it, forget it.

    @aty1985 I appreciate the direction mate

    - I believe they are Polish anchor texts, lots of them
    - archive shows it could have been a PBN blog, shows random blog posts irrelevant to the domain name
    - We have 12 historical records for xxxxxx.c0m. The oldest record dates back more than 1 year. There are at least 8 significant changes. About 50% of the records publish domain name ownership data; the rest use a privacy or proxy service.
    - .edu & .gov seems to be random foreign sites with those tlds
