    Hello,

    I have some expired domain with backlinks from high authority website ( 1 - 3 backlink with pr 2+). However, it is completely not related to my niche. So, I have 2 optional:

    1. Redirect pages which has high pr backlink to homepage. Then add new niche content in expired domain and use it as money site.
    2. Add new niche content in expired domain then 301 redirect main domain to subdomain.

    What is better for my case ? Anyone comment would be highly appreciated !

    Thank you very much !

    Try to purchase a niche related domain, it would be expensive but it works for long term and you will be saved from extra work.

    If you just have this two possibilities, it's mostly better to add content and refurbish the site.
    If it's strong enough to function as money site depends on the quality and authority of backlinks; PR alone doesn't say anything about link authority...

    Hope it helps

    Clean domain history, spam free anchors and backlinks from authority sites, such as media, newspapers, tv,

    You may want to try both options and see what works best for your needs.
