    I've recently purchased an expired domain and these are some of the metrics:

    Trust Flow: 13
    Citation Flow: 28

    External Backlinks: 1860
    Referring Domains: 91
    Referring IPs: 89
    Referring Subnets: 87

    Domain Authority: 30.35
    Page Authority: 37.50

    Are these good metrics for a PBN? I'm VERY new to PBN's I'm really trying hard to learn about them and how to properly set them up. If anybody has a good tutorial for a starter/newbie I'd love to read those as well :)

    Providing the domain is spam-free and hasn't previously been abused for seo purposes, you're good to go :)

    The stat's look pretty decent. As for guides, take a look at this.

    Metrics looks ok but make sure you also check the backlinks, you do not want domain with all links from directories or even blog comments.

    Quite decent metrics. Check for spammy anchors, check if the domain has been previously abused or used as a part of PBN.

    metrics looks good, always check the history snapshots for the domain. Ahrefs report on the backlink will also give a good picture.

    You can check spam score at moz.com => take a look in researchtools and open site explorer

    That's an above average domain for a PBN. Would give a nice boost.

    usually I got for a CF < 2xTF to make sure it's not spammed;
    Then you need to check the quality of backlinks and their thematics, the number, the anchors diversity etc.

    Metrics are just an overview to filter good and bad domains.

    Trust flow of 13 is a bit low I'd say, for a CF of 28.

    Spam score is 0/17, I can only see 5 of the links to it, all 1-3 spam score

    Hmm, after purchasing an ahref's account I realize the backlinks look pretty bad, tons of them mostly in russian/asian languages, tons of websites that are no longer live or functioning.

    If anybody would be so kind as to being a second opinion on this -> If I tell you the domain would anybody like to take a look? I've already purchased the domain so I don't mind giving it out to a person or two who seem trusted (I know that's horrible for PBN) but I feel a bit let down now D: was hoping to make this one my first PBN lol.

    Let me know or PM me if you'd like to take a look:)

    I was about to say that a TF/CF 13/28 and a DA 30 didn't seem right at all, not only because what @TayaX said (that's not foolproof, but it helps in 90% of the cases) but knowing how bad MOZ crawlers are, a DA 30 with a low TF doesn't make sense to me, so there are high chances that those "high metrics" links were already removed/dropped, hence not showing on Majestic and not being computed into the fresh index metrics :)

    I can take a look if you wish, but I'm afraid I already know my answer :D

    I think you already realized that metrics don't matter as much as the quality of the backlinks :) Metrics can always be manipulated, especially Moz's ones. Always check the backlinks, anchor text ratios, if the domain is still indexed and previous domain history. Regarding your current domain, those links seem too spammy for me, so I wouldn't use it. I hope you didn't spend a lot of money for buying the domain.

    Hi WeWontBeAlone, I can show you samples of my PBN if you would like and also I can give you better PBN domains (for a price ofcourse). If you are interested hit me on skype, if it matters I am still waiting for a mod PM in order to initiate a sales thread here on BHW regarding expired domains.

    Metrics looks decent. But, there is No relation between the Referring Domains and External backlink. So, you should check the backlinks first.

    Metrics looks somewhat good.But TF and CF should be in 2:1 ratio I hope.Always be aware of domain's history,backlinks and keyword or anchor text when you buying a domain even it is expired or indexed.

    TF:CF ratio means nothing dude, I rank just well with higher TF than CF PBN domains.
