    Hey all

    I recently purchased a domain with an age of 10 years.

    There´s hardly been any content on it, last time it shows up in website archive is 7 years ago. So im wondering, is it safe for me to start blasting backlinks to this domain?


    And, how to i gain SERP´s when i dont got any content, its a directory website, so im mostly having links, any tips would be much apprieciated.

    Thanks
    Jesper

    i would suggest put some content and wait few weeks to index then go for link building.

    I think that G can figure out that the whois is changed recently and put this in balance regarding blast safety.. just my opinion.

    This goes against all theories but I have seen some of my old domains sandboxed after blasting them.

    I wouldn't recommend doing any stuff you'd usually not do on a newer domain.

    Actually, you should be more careful, since you can't get old domains by the dozen, like regular domains. You will suffer a lot if your domain gets banned or sandboxed or otherwise penalized although given its age you may be able to contact Google and BS your way out.
