    Hello all

    I found this expired domain with awesome metric.
    DA PA TF CF
    Domain 1 15 28 34 23
    But after I checked on archive.org, I found some problems

    Got an HTTP 302 response at crawl time

    Redirecting to...domain 2

    and the domain 1 never show any content because after buy the domain 1, the old admin Redirected to the domain 2

    But all backlinks (there are 1 PR4, 1 PR5 and 1 PR6 homepage backlinks link to domain 1, not domain 2)

    All backlinks are really good and show only at homepage

    So, should I bought this domain ?
    Thanks

    Doesn't matter
    the link juice belongs to the domain 1 so i dont think you will get the benefit of the metrics as there are no live backlinks on the site.. and the metrics will soon drop once you start building the site

    If the backlinks are pointing to domain 1 then it's of some value but since the links are on hompage it can be taken off anytime and it's quite risky to not think of that.

    If the domain you are buying has no direct backlinks that you can rely upon for long term then avoid it.

    Sounds like the domain has backlinks that have a high probability of being deleted. The sites they're on could be part of a blog network too, which might increase the risk of losing them a 100 times more. Avoid anything that has been previously redirected.

    Get domains with direct links to it. One way you can be sure is to check its history using archive.org. If it looks shady just pass it. Millions of domains expiring a day, I'm sure you will be able to find some good nuggets along the way.

    If your doubtful about the metrics, Just skip it and spend time in finding other expired domains.

    Not worth it, whatever the price.
