    Hi,

    Im building my pbn, I found some domains that are already in my network, but I bought few with like 3-5 refering domains, and now I don't know their metrics are really good, the links are good and Im thinking should I build sites around these domains or just 301 them to the site I want to rank?

    My site and the expired domain are same niche links, but only 3-5 refering domains.

    Average metrics are: 3 ref domains, TF22, 16Cf, 12da, 26pa

    What you guys think? Few people told me I should build sites around 10-15 ref domains, but since I bought few of domains with low amount of ref domains, I need to use them now, tell me the best way to use them.

    Thanks!

    I did everything is fine, just asking if I should 301 to money site or build site from these domains, asking because they have low number of refering domains

    Don't bother doing a 301, you will see little benefit unless they are niche relevant and have a lot of traffic going to them already.

    You will see much better benefit by building sites around them and creating your own PBN with them. Keep it all clean and don't leave any footprint and you will be fine.

    So even with 3-5 refering domains it is good idea to build sites and link to money site (standard routine)??

    These I would say you are better off building sites on those domains, even if you are only dealing with 3-5 sites. A few good backlinks can make a good deal of difference to your rankings whereas a few good 301s likely won't make much difference unless they have lots of relevant traffic.

    301 is great for transferring traffic from one site to another but not so great for ranking improvements these days.

    Put some supplementary content on those expired domains and backlinks from them will be more relevant and will help your money site more than the 301 redirection.

    The only risk of a domain with low referring domains is when they are removed. For me, 5 referring domains is fine as long as the backlinks are in good quality.

    Before choosing expired domains check the metrics.
    After that you need to see which type of website was running before it expired, simply go archive then put the domain URL. It is also important check for the expired domains.
