    Hi guys

    i know that expired domains are used for PBN

    but i am about the launch my new business but my question is using expired domain for my new business would give me advantage over other websites?

    or should i get a new domain?

    for ex. if i find an seo related domain which its owner did seo work with this domain and decided to leave the job after 2 years

    of course this domain will be powerfull than my newly created domain.

    am i wrong?

    which is the best approach for competitive keyword and business?

    waiting for your opinions

    That all depends on the domain. If its a domain that's been spammed to hell and back, no a new domain would be best.

    If your domain name has expired. I think it's value would also like a new domain name.

    It's stupid to even ask. Obviously new domain for "startup".

    New domain regardless. It's best. You can get legitimate results for it and you know that nothing has ever been done on it.

    If you want to have your own brand, register a new domain, and then 301 a strong, aged domain to your new one.

    You could use an expired domain if you find a good one with good backlink profile. If you are unsure of everything, just go with a new domain.

    If I were starting a startup I would def go with a new domain name that I could brand my business around...

    Just my 2 cents.

    If you used for startup than use new domain
    also, expired domain its depending on quality
    NO drop +2
    NO spammy link/whois/site
    NO PBN,shape,illegal content
    Have good metrics
    NO deindex before

    New domain!

    As you can get your company's name as a domain and building a brand, rather then using some expired domain!

    Thank you

    For startup, its best to use a new domain as you will be planning on building a brand. But if you donot care about branding, then go for the expired domain.

    If you're serious about the business your brand should be more important than picking up a domain with some links......

    There is nothing stopping you doing both, use 1 site as your brand and the other site to generate leads.

    Bro just from experience I regret using a New domain now, I wish I had bought a Expired one, ugh,
    This is the thing,

    Struggle to achieve traffic to a fresh domain,
    No Backlinks.

    Expired domain > Old back links that can be restated,
    Social active signals, and Purposeful traffic that had once been attracted to the domain.

    If you build a brand, then go with new domain, but if you're not, then go with expired domain.

    +1 get it indexed and redirect to your new domain.

    Best of both worlds.

    A fresh domain which is brandable is what you need, along with good expired domain 301'ed links to it.
