    Recently, I became interested in PBNs.

    I came across a service that is offered on BHW that finds the high PR domains for you and lets you bid on them - they send you emails about new domains.

    The domains are owned by them.

    I saw a domain that I really liked; PR5, great backlinks, awesome PA/DA, Price was $250ish and only 20 hours left till the auction ends. The only problem that I saw with it was that the domain had a few anchors relating to a certain male enhancement drug.

    The anchor text percentage was 4%

    Then I wasn't sure whether I wanted the domain...

    Clearly the domain has been hacked or spammed and since I was a newbie to this I was not going to take any chances so I let the domain auction end. The price was like $500 or so - out of my budget.


    Now my questions are:

    As a private blog owner, would you let this domain in your network?
    Would you buy this domain, if you were me?

    Did you check the PA DA?

    Did you check the region where the most of backlinks are coming?

    Did you check the PR ? Is it fake PR?

    How many domains are linking to it? And are those domains alive yet?

    So many questions before deciding to buy a domain from Auction....

    Thanks

    No, I avoid domains with any hints of inappropriate niches such as pharma and gambling no matter how good they seem they are. I don't want the SEs getting the wrong impression that I'm getting links from a bad neighbourhood. If it was $30, I might get it just for Tier 2s but I'm absolutely not going to spend hundreds of dollars on a site unless it is squeaky clean.

    Prices for high PR are stupid high IMHO.
    I focus on PA/DA and a good clean backlink profile.

    You can easily find such domains via registercompass. You never know how many people will be bidding for some domain or his service send unique domains to every user?

    Q1. Most of them were USA/UK
    Q2. The PR was 5 - the people who offered the domains on the auctions know their shizz
    Q3. Almost 40 different domains - it had a few links from good authority sites (like Huffington Post)

    Thanks for your ideas by the way.
