    I'm currently my PBN and discovered several great domains with PA/DA/TF 20+ some even includes links from .gov,.edu and no spammy links like gambling & pharma. However some are chinese sites and english ecommerce site. Are these sites good for PBN?

    Another question, is there any possible way to register an expired .edu domain?

    I would stay away from the Chinese sites. A lot of these websites only have good stats because they have links from dozens of other e-commerce websites that are removed eventually. Furthermore since I can't read Chinese, it's a pain to see if these links are still there or not, so for the most part I would stay away.

    As far as the .edu site, I'm pretty sure you have to be an educational institution to register one of these.

    Thanks alot for your input. What about english e-commerce sites are they worth the register? Do you suggest linking an english site to a Chinese site PBN? I can read Chinese and it was a chinese forum before that. However, I'm not sure whether I should link an english site to a chinese PBN.

    As far as English e-commerce sites, if the link profile looks good then it's fine to register. I am not sure what you mean "linking an English site to a Chinese site PBN".

    Anyway if you can read Chinese and the links look good, then that's fine to register. However I do notice that a lot of chinese websites that have good PR/TF/DA/PA etc. are usually because they are part of a network of websites, and thus when the domain is let go the links are removed as well.

    English ecommerce domains can be used as long as they haven't been spammed. Avoid the Chinese domains because many Chinese sites use extreme spam to rank their sites. Their Chinese anchor texts are a huge red flag for a PBN used to rank sites in a different country.

    The best kind of expired domain names you can purchase is aged .org domains used by non-profit organisations. They usually have lots of high quality links from edu and gov sites with literally no trace of spam in their link profiles.

    I avoid all foreign language domains, whilst they can still work, I've seen people have more issues than not. 100% english sites all the way is key imo...

    I agree with that. Also imagine this: Google automatically tries to detect what languae your domain is. Now if you put english content on a formally french site, theoretically google could detect it. They might not do it now but the way they are cracking down on PBNs it's only a matter of time. How many times does a normal website change the language it is in? If you have lots of formally foreign domains link to your money site it would be a perfect footprint for them to follow.
