    Hello folks,

    I've never build a PBN before but after about 3-4 days of searching for an expired domain, I found one with some good metrics and purchased it. Anyway, it's in the same niche as my main money site.

    The domain itself is a english .org domain. However, the site was clearly built up in Russia. Using Goobers Translate tool, I can see that this site was indeed about the specific niche I was looking for - just in Russian. Many of the anchor texts and backlinks are in cyrillic script, yet again, the niche is legit.

    I'm not sure if I should just do a 301 redirect to my main money site and get some link juice that way OR if I should actually just build out the site (in English) and do 1-2 direct links to my money site.

    Thoughts?

    Since the backlinks and previous site is your exact niche, you really have nothing to worry about besides the quality of backlinks that were for the old site. Check those and if they're good, 301 redirect it to your money site.

    Just as @OutofTown said besides the quality of back-link related to the PBN domain, there's nothing to worry about. As long as they are in the same niche, 301 redirect will work just fine.

    Don't know why everyone here advises for 301. To build a site is always better. The language of the previous site doesn't matter, as long the backlinks are niche relevant.

    So that's (6) votes for the 301 redirect and (1) vote for building out the site.

    Well, I got a little eager last night and decided just to build out the site. However, by "build out", I mean I only created two posts of well written content, added 2-3 pics and 1 or 2 links going to wikipedia. ...and of course only 1 link going to my money-site. I don't know if this half assed attempt will do much or if I'm just wasting a good domain, but we will see. Overall, the site is clean and very topic specific...I'm sure it looks kosher and informative to the layman.

    Looks like the site is indexed in Yahoo/Bing, but not in Goober - I've pinged it, submitted site maps...etc. So that could be a sign that either I'm way to impatient or this sucker got flagged by Goober.

    Hell, I don't know, I'm just wingin it here fellas. But thanks for your input.
