    Hi guys,

    It's my first post here! I don't much practical experience with SEO, but I've read a ton in last few weeks from ahrefs/moz/bwh. I love the learning curve of SEO. Hopefully, soon I will start implementing my knowledge.

    Today, I've been diving into topic of PBNs for the first time. I was just looking on expireddomains and I found domain that made me wonder about an outcome of a hypothetical purchase.

    I don't want to reveal it's actual name, but it's basically "FirstnameLastnameIndustry". It has:
    • PA of 24
    • DA of 10
    • 2k+ external backlinks from 24 domains
    • hasn't been dropped before.
    • ok anchor text profile
    Currently, the previous owner continues to run an online business, but at "FirstnameLastname" and dropped the previous domain, instead of keeping it and setting a redirect.

    Assuming I bought this domain, my questions are:
    • Are there any quick ways to make $ on this? i.e. pitch the previous owner?
    • What content could I produce on such site so it looks ok to google? I assume I cannot pretend to be another FirstnameLastname personality since there is one already.
    • What if I run the site and pretend to be her, or someone else, and she contacts me to drop the site?
    I'd much appreciate guidance on this. I don't want anyone to focus on above metrics too much, as I might use feedback from this thread for future cases similar to the one above.

    Much thanks,

    To answer you
    1. You can try pitch it, but first develop the design and content that would be suitable fir them to see its potential
    2.Write something general about the niche, not specifically for the lastname.secondname
    3.I dont think that would be legal or ethical. Contact them first to know if they may agree to your plans.
