    I'm starting my first real site. I've been reading that you should try to find a domain with some history to it.

    I have found two domains so far using moz open site explorer:

    http://www.***********.com (Abbreviated word and partial keyword)
    DOMAIN AUTHORITY
    8 /100
    PAGE AUTHORITY
    23 /100
    2 links
    ---------------------------------
    http://www.******************.com (3 words with 2 word broad keyword)
    DOMAIN AUTHORITY
    7 /100
    PAGE AUTHORITY
    20 /100
    7 links
    -------------------------------
    They both have zero for spam.

    Should I continue my search for something better or stick with one of these?

    a good thing to check is if the domain had previous links, theyre not spammy

    Those metrics are way too low.

    Basically if you look at the distribution of the metrics of expired domains... I can find hundreds and on a good day thousands of expired domains like that. After DA20+ they start to get a lot less common but still not too bad and after DA25+ with good backlinks bow they are getting rareish. DA35+ is getting quite rare and DA40/50+ very very rare. I've got a couple of solid DA34s with high quality backlinks but over that it's like mining for diamonds.

    The sweet spot is DA22-25 on the condition they have high quality backlinks. You will find 5x - 10x the amount of DA25 domains with no or spammy backlinks. Yet they are just common enough that if I need one I can find one within a day. Realistically they are the best target but of course if I can find higher than that I want to register it right away.

    DA of 15 ought to be ur absolute minimum and I base that on having discovered a competitors PBN of 9 sites that were all between DA11 to DA19 though he was still ranking number one for a profitable keyword that has 20,000 searches a month in the target country. But like I said they are very common and easy to find though you can do considerably better.

    Is the domain name really relevant though?

    The second one is more branded. The top is just close to the topic.
