    Hi,
    I am thinking to buy old domain and want to build it for high to medium competition keyword like "how to lose belly fat" etc.

    Can anyone tell what things I need to consider before buying old domain.

    Basically I saw many threads about old domain but the problem is, they all are focusing on link building or building blog network and in my case I need to build old domain as a money site.

    Is that possible and if yes what things I need to consider

    Backlink profile - what does it look like? PR is it real or fake? Has the domain been dropped? EMDs are they available as well? Go to archive.org learn about the history of the site. Was it a spam site?

    are you going to develop your site around adsense or product selling or cpa. i think this thing determines what to look for in the domain
