    Hey guys,

    I've found a strong expired domain (it had expired today), which was previously used by some non-profit organization. Then it had been 301 redirected to a new domain for approx 1 year. Now the question is, is it worth buying and what to do with it?

    It doesn't cost much, cause it's available for state's residents only.


    Domain stats are:
    Opensiteexplorer: DA=37, PA=38, PR=5, MozTrust 5.01
    MajesticSeo: External Backlinks 104K, Referring Domains 390, Citation Flow 28, Trust Flow 23
    Ahrefs: Domain Rank 48, Backlinks 95K


    Link profile:
    1. 20-30 PR2-5 links with naked URL or brand-keyword from governmental, non-profit and educational organizations
    2. PR0 links from niche-related blogposts, forums etc
    3. a lot of spam links with porn anchors, which seemingly did not affect the domain (at least, there was no animal-penalty applied)


    My idea is to re-register it, remove redirection and build a website of the same niche. After I can use it for promoting local businesses operating in the same niche and/or boosting their websites.


    My concern is that 301 redirect seemingly "sticks" with a domain. I had previously redirected one domain to another. The oldest domain has been deleted 3 years ago but GWT still shows it's backlinks as new domain's backlinks.


    So, how do you think, is it possible to reuse previously redirected domain without drastically losing it's authority?

    100 views and no ideas? Looks like I should do some testing
