    Hey Guys,

    Currently building a strong PBN to rank some med-comp KWs and I often end up finding some interesting domains, with a quite shady background, but not spammed to death. I've read a 100 times that domains used in a PBN already are a no-go when building your PBN but I really want to know how bad can it be.

    I have this domain example. A TF31/CF31/DA25/PA30 domain with an amazing backlinking bone structure. Although, it has been registered during a year and used as a 302 redirect to a payday loan site.

    I would like to understand (based on users experiences) what is the risk behind such a domain. Reviving the original website wouldn't help re building some trust in the eyes of Google? Or is it far dead?

    Would love to hear people on this matter.

    Why don't you just use it and find out?

    Being my first PBN I don't want to bring a huge flag in my domains pack.
    I have no doubt it can be indexed again, but I'm just wondering if that can bring down a whole network.

    Think about it, you have a PBN and wouldn't you re-register your domains?

    UNLESS they were deindexed.

    Its always possible that the person forgot to re-register the domain so if you are willing to take the risk go ahead.

    I understand your point. The 302 it redirected to is also up for grab.

    I'll just buy it and try & index it and see how it goes from there I guess.

    I'd give a go to purchase.
    With that metrics, I'd have taken risk for sure :)

    I never register domains that used to 302 redirect to spammy websites. The lower the risks are the better. In past when I registered such domains some of them were not indexed in Google.

    well as mentioned here, I bought it and it got indexed 3 days ago. It's kind of a risky move so I might use it for external clients rather than in my own PBN

    I would really suggest not to use it. there is a reason why the seo dropped this domain

    That doesn't make much sense considering my posts.

    If it's not too expensive to buy then why not give it a try? Ive tried with such domains before and have gotten lucky and unlucky so it depends.

    Of course you will always run a certain amount of risk with pbn links.

    This to be honest is the way to do it.

    If the PBN domain was never v&nned for being part of a network then it should be okay. It doesn't matter how many people on here chime in with ideas, only by re-building it will you ever know if it can rank again.

    if its indexed in google i would go for it, ive seen some sites ranking with expired domains with good metrics, and checking thos pbn at archive i found that they was used as pbn before, got expired and them made pbn again in a diferent niche...
