    Question:

    How do you guys prevent purchased expired domains from losing the previously established links?

    I mean over time, external sites would know that the site they used to link to are no longer the "same website", and would pull the links out. Is there a way you guys deal with this?

    That is why i create new links to my PBN's and when i hunt for domains i make sure that there are enough links pointing to them, you can also get the old content from archive.com, it is not something i do because i feel that it is a major footprint, but that is just me :))

    Not really much you can do in that regard. Re-establishing the site as it was previously would be one way to stem potential link-loss. However, I wouldn't worry about it too much. As fc-dh alluded to above, just keeping adding new domains.

    fc-dh - Can you explain how using archive.com content is a footprint? We're just putting on old content back on a site right? Nothing really wrong with that, algorithm-wise? o_O

    Here you have a domain that has been out of order for a while (often a couple of months or even more) the domain is being reregistered and the old content is back again, imho nothing screams "this is a PBN site" more imho, i'll bet everything i have in my pockets against everything you have in your pockets that Google has his own archive too... I would... So i don't use old content from the old sites

    Hmm. Fair argument there.

    But on the other hand, if a company had a sub site that is of commercial, and that domain expired because that section of the business wasn't profitable anymore but later got new funding, they might relaunch it and bring back to old content - not everyone is PBN savvy.

    I'm just thinking out loud here but:

    - if a re-registered site suddenly came back with totally different content about a different topic - that really DOES scream PBN because no real business would want such a weird branding experience.

    For example:

    Say there was a domain called - gadgetsandtech.com about technology and gadgets. Google's indexed it in its cache.

    Then it expires

    Some business buys it over and fills it up with new content about something else. It just doesn't make sense for the business to do so.

    But on the other hand, SEO's would be more than happy to buy and fill it up this way.

    Know what I mean?

    While i've got you here fc-dh, can i just ask:

    - Have you ever had a PBN lose almost all its value?

    Like say a DA 46 site go all the way down to like DA 15 or something, over time via link loss?

    Its just part of the game, but you should be making enough money back to not worry much about this.

    Just re-up on domains when needed.

    Yes that will happend with most expired domains over time. If you buy expiring domains, they can loose some good links just after you got them, since linking domains notice old domain dont exist anymore or have changed.
