    I have 2 EMDs. I want to use one of them as money site but can't decide which one.

    EMD 1: This was a domain that someone owned. They let it expire and nobody bought it, so it dropped. Then I bought it, resetting the registration date. No signs of SEO

    EMD 2: This was a domain that someone owned. They let it expire and I bought it from auction so the registration date did not reset. Registration date is from 2 years ago. According to majestic, it used to have one backlink. The backlink was from a shady site, I think a PBN.

    Which one should I use as money site? I would think the 2 year old domain provides an advantage, but I am also a little uncomfortable with taht because a competitor of mine recently did the exact same thing (bought old domain from auction and used it as money site) and he ranked well for a few weeks but then he completely disappeared from the SERPS.

    as long as the domain is at least a few months old its ok.

    I would go with the first one since the second site had a shady link.
