Spammed (but not banned) domains for PBN blogs?

    I've been reading a lot about this forum and some other forums for making PBNs.

    I have noticed that some people say that we should be very careful not to choose spammed domains for PBN blogs.

    But some other say it does not matter because it would just pass the link juice it has, not penalty.
    (So as long as the domain/site is indexed, it's good to go.)

    I'd like to know your opinions about this.

    Thank you.

    If you buy a spamed domain to use for your PBM, say one that has tons of anchors for viagra. You can link to your money site with it without getting your money site penalized, but since the domain itself is penalized the link from it will be worth next to nothing. I have tested this out a few times. Spammed domains don't do jack for ranking sites.

    Thanks for that info.
    When you decide if the domain/site was spammed, should you just have to check the anchor texts and their diversity? I'm asking this because these domains can still have high Moz DA/PA and/or Majestic trust flow etc.

    Check Anchor text, links (in either majestic or opensite explorer) make sure it wasn't spammed with low quality links like blog comments or forum profiles, and also check the wayback machine to see what type of content was hosted on the site. Checking how many drops the domain has had is also another thing you should do.

    The problem with expired domains is that the pharmacy spammers have been registering them in mass for years and years so it's hard to find ones that weren't spammed to death by viagra and other pill pushers. Another alternative to expired domains is purchasing them as they expire instead of harvesting them from around the internet. You'll have less spam in ones that are expiring, but higher competition in buying them.

    If you're going to buy expired domains, do your due diligence as TrailBlazer suggested.

    The entire goal with a PBN is to build something that won't be taken down or de-listed, and introducing spammed domains is not going to help you with that. Why raise a red flag that never needs to be raised?

    They may pass some value if your money site niche is related to spam domain niche.

    Else, just buy a new one.

    So what if you make a redirect without masking?

    You are better off buying a new domain, spamming it with GSA all day until it reaches High DA & PA and then pass the link juice to money site.

    Save your time. You can get such domains for less than $20 on auctions but there's a reason why they're so cheap. Yes, they have high PR\DA, but these are spammed to the max and they will pass on minimal value in terms of SEO. Not only that, you will have a very suspicious looking backlink profile and might or might not cause you to be penalized.
