    I know, I know... always expired domains and PBNs, it never seems to end

    today I have a question that was not discussed yet as far as I can see:

    I have an interesting opportunity to buy some decent domains with clean backlink profile. They have been legit sites in the past, no spam or any no-gos whatsoever.

    BUT: They have been parked for the last 2-4 years. Would you still buy them for PBN purposes or do you see any risk? Does google like domains which were parked quite a long time?

    It's better than a brand new domain i would say.

    As far as I can see, there shouldn't be any reason why a domain that has previously been parked can't be turned back into a website that Google will index and rank if required - so the fact that it is going to be part of a PBN is of no consequence.

    You are completely fine using a domain like that! If the only drop aside from the actual page in the past are parked pages, you're good to go!

    Parking's not a problem. As long as the rest of the criteria are met you're good to go.
