    So i want to work on this domain which i purchased from godaddy auctions for $300. Right after i purchased the domain i noticed that it got some backlinks which were probably built by the previous owner. Only 2 backlinks from 2 different domains. There used to be the site on that domain which was in completely different niche from the one i want to build now.

    My question is should i continue to work on this domain and it will rank as good any other domain ? or buy another domain from godaddy auctions without any backlink history and work on that? I really like this domain and its brandable for my niche so i want to use this and rank well on google.

    + reps for answers.

    I would say go for it. If you have the ability to produce niche relevant content and socially brand the domain to your standards then I wouldn't see anything wrong with using it. Now if it was a site that was churned and burned then I would see a problem.

    first there is no reps in bhw anymore.
    second why not do work with this new domain u bought?
    easy website address, easy to remember? serve ur niche well?
    and after awhile if u really think those backlinks hurting u, u can remove it via webmaster, i believe they offering a tool for that

    burn that domain and feed it to the dogs :) or give it to me... either way

    domain name is irrelevant in G's eyes nowadays... since you just bought the domain why don't you just disavow all the links on it ?
