    Hey guys,

    I've been lurking around for a domain name and finally found one but would like your thought if it worth buying it or not !

    Domain name is :
    - EMD related to my niche
    - 4 years old
    - PR3
    - TF : 6 / CF : 16
    - Backlinking profile is nothing exceptionnal (some anchors are russian/cyrillic text)
    - Web machine is clean in the past
    - Worth $10 on bid auction.

    Do you recommend a 301 redirection to my money site or part of PBN ?

    Thanks !
    Regards

    Just based on not seeing the actual links I would stay away from it.

    TF low but CF substantially higher. Check the links I'd guess most are spam based on the anchor's you mentioned (unless that was the proper language of the site etc.)

    Check archive.org what was on there before. As PR has not been updated in years I would not be so sure it is still close to that and would not base my buying on that.

    Check DA. Thats a better metric than PR. Check the actual backlinks. Do they have legit backlinks that are hard to get? If yes, buy it. Its only $10.

    DA :21 / PA :1

    Will stay away from it as backlink profile has no good links. Thanks for your input !

    Hey, 10 bucks isn't a lot of money.
    If you have a chance, better buy it now, than regret later :)

    After the purchase, see if you can do something with it.

    Best to avoid as the PR is likely not the actual one.

    If it has decent links coming into it, then yes.

    DA looks good but the PA looks suspicious , and just dont care about PR . Check the backlink quality on ahrefs.com

    TF CF 12,16 is not particularly strong.
    Depending on the competition in your niche you may need a bunch of these to see a rise in rankings.
    One is not enough.
