    I have a niche i'm trying to rank in, found expired domain for it with so-so stats and really good name. Stats were 24PA 9DA, 20 RD 16CF with clean wayback and anchors.

    Should I use this domain to get a bit of a jump start, or keep looking for a stronger one.

    Also: should i use the content from wayback machine?

    You can use content from wayback if it's relevant, however if you're thinking of some real progress you should focus on new relevant content.

    I am not fan of rebuilding the domains for 2 reasons.

    1. You want your PBN sites to be as niche relevant as possible when it comes to content. Even if you get your hands on niche relevant domain (backlinks wise), it will very rarely be super related to your keyword. Not to mention, that if you have some impossible niche where finding relevant domains is borderline impossible, you can't repurpose them at all.
    2. It can lead to some angry people who got their copyright infringed. It happened to me and my clients in the past.

    Bottom line, it's always better to put on new relevant content. At least that's my personal view.

    I have no problem using expired content from WayBack or even rebuilding the old site. I also like to build a hybrid site that uses the old HTML site and a wordpress blog install ;).
