    Expired Domain - Good PA / DA / CF / TF but the links are weak from comments blogs, directories, and forums.

    Links are links but is it worth building a PBN on these domains?

    They are niche specific sites BTW.

    So what you say experts???

    TIA,
    Mike

    Hi Mike - If the links are no good, I would keep looking.

    What's important here is that you'll be spending money on each PBN - content, hosting, domain renewals, your time - it all adds up as you build your network, so you need to make sure it's worth the investment.

    Accelerator dd,

    So avoid those directories, forum post and blog comments backlinks. Should I be looking for contextual type links within the body of the article then?

    TIA,
    Mike

    Yes, contextual type links in the body of an article are ideal and in this case, preferred. However, I wouldn't necessarily say avoid directories, forum and links from blog comments, though. As long as it's not blatant spam, collectively they can hold some power and be useful in the right circumstances.

    Metrics are crap, if the links are weak then forget it.

    Go to majestic, enter the domain name, add up all the page trust flow from the backlinks, example (21+17+15+10+5...) if it's less than 100 it's not worth the registration money.

    (comments and forum links suck, don't count them, directories are fine unless they have like 50+ backlinks on the page)

    The metrics are defintely not as good as it says it is. I have found many deleted domains that has links but most from blog comments / forums, and directories. They have high enough pa and da with decent cf/tf but weak links like i mentioned.

    I finally found 3 decent sites with good links after 2 days of searching.

    Thank you all for the answers.

    Yes, contextual links are the best ones you can have. If you open up the links manually, even only a few, you can immediately distinguish the bad from the good.

    I never touch anything with directories links. Sure, you can disavow them if they're the only problem, but that means they've been spammed, not worth the effort.
