    After a lot of scraping there are a lot expired domains that were previously chinese, the thing is though that

    Backlinks are still clean and so is the anchor text.

    Some were used for linking and such but can it be given a fresh start? Any PBN expert opinion on this?

    Thoughts?

    I avoid those - once a PBN domain has been used for anything other than its original purpose (legit website), I steer clear.

    You could revive a website like that in some cases, and in other cases it will work fine as it is, but it's a gamble.

    If those domains has good metrics and fresh content try it.
    Otherwise made your content uniquely and update your contents and images properly.

    For me, I avoid domains that turned into something completely different like it was turned into a Chinese Blog Network because those kind of domains are either spammed or under google’s penalty.

    Don't look for the domains that has no quality and even they get a spammed content which is not related.
    Though it contain more back links you need to edit the content with high quality that relating your site.
    Avoid these kind of domains which leads to a problem.

    Google keeps track of website content, so I would stay away from them.

    I always skip those domains personally. I put a lot of time and effort into my PBN so I don't really want to have any sites in there that could potentially draw attention to it from Google.

    Ain't worth the risk.

    My suggestion is to avoid the old domain by refreshing it to use as a new site. It may be has good links. But in most of the cases, it is bad because of the age of the old domain.

    Better to buy old domain and it redirects your new site witch increase the ranking the site. Refreshing the old site may take more time to get ranked than new site.

    If you buy the old domains, check the metrics and if it is has spam or not.
