    Hello

    I found out an expired domain with decent metrics which I want to make my money site on. The domain is of the niche I want it to be. However my concern is that it was changed to a different niche for the last time it was dropped.

    Is it still worth to go for it ??

    You can check the Wayback Machine to see what was on the domain previously.

    Don't look at the metrics, look at the actual backlinks.

    Sorry for thread jacking, but I have a similar question. Is this domain worth registering? It's in the right niche and backlinks were all natural in my opinion.
