    I always consider trust flow while buying PBN domains, The problem is, one sidewide link from a single website that has high TF and many inner pages can seriously boost TF of the domain, however the website will not be that good.

    Trust flow is very important, it depicts the trust worthiness of the domain and the type of sites linking to it.

    It isn't necessary for a domain to have trust flow before it can be deemed a good domain worthy of a spot in your blog network. However, most domains having zero trust flow have links from mainly spammy sources. So, check the quality of its backlinks using ahrefs. If the backlinks aren't spammy, you have nothing to worry about.

    Probably not worth registering that domain.

    Anything below 10 TF I put in the tier 2 PBN (lol) and point them to my tier 1 web 2.0s

    I accept 15+ TF for my real PBN but I really look for 20+ TF

    Also you have to look at the ratio of CF/TF

    Google "citation flow trust flow ratio" to get more info on it

    I believe i read somewhere that the ideal CF/TF ration should not be above 1.8.

    Yes I also read that.

    I believe 1.8 is a good rule of thumb although I really try to get them below 1.6

    Trust Flow is a very useful metric when you need to filter tons of spammy domains, but as every metric is not completely reliable. I've seen hundreds of high-TF domains that had been spammed to death.

    I know it's a cliché, but as long as you think the link profile is good, don't worry about the metrics.

    I found that TF is not accurate in certain cases. For example I found a really fine domain. It was the former website of a universitiy conference. It had some really nice backlinks from university sites. However, it had a very low TF. I checked the backlinks then and found this: Majestic assigned TF=N/A to a lot the university pages where this conference site got links from.

    The reason was that these pages linked to a lot (100+) sites. All conferences, other universities etc. But because of the high OBL majestic assumes that it is some kind of link farm / spam and assigned a low or even N/A TF to the backlink URL.

    Google is probably smarter and knows that it is not a link farm but authoritative links.

    I sold this domain, build a PBN and got a very nice boost in my ranking.

    You always want to check the backlink profile to see the whole picture. Maybe you can use TF for a preselection. But even then you will probably use some good opportunities.

    Each metric is just another piece of the puzzle. If all metrics point to yes AND you've eyeballed the links yourself, it's a winner.
