    domain with fine metrics, PR4 non commercial, no artificial backlinks, all earned by niche authority. TF>30, wikipedia link + more links from high authority sites, 110 referring IPs

    prior to similar domains I saw before I estimate the value $300

    BUT: It was hacked (I guess) several years ago and links to gambling sites were placed on home. No links were built to it, that means backlink profile is still fine.

    Most of you will probably say: NoNo!! stayawaystayawaystayaway!! There are enough fine domains out there which were not abused.

    I get that.

    But lets say I could get that domain for the fraction of price (around $50 - 70) due to the fact that it was abused - would you still not buy it?

    I mean the backlink power is really overwhelming thus I feel tempted. Of course if such a domain is burnt forever I wont do it.

    Please advise me

    I doubt it was hacked, a guy in the gambling niche probably picked up expired or purchased it then used and abused it for his money site then let it expire.
    Don't touch it with a ten foot pole lol

    Might be. Not sure though as there is a no drop indicated also not in waybackmachine. But result is the same. Domain was abused. Are there any studies showing what happens to abused websites. Will it be completely worthless although the backlinks to that domain were untouched?

    I know the common saying stay away from these domains but does anybody here have real experiences and wants to share?
