  1. There is this domain that I may want to buy as it seems to have good metrics. Thing is I look into its history through archive.org and found that its first owner was legit and seems to have gathered some high quality links from .gov and .edu domains. The 2nd owner totally spammed the site with thousands of irrelevant text anchor links and the last owner used it as a PBN site. Good thing is that the site haven't been de-indexed as I can still see 2 pages indexed in Google. Is it worth buying for registration price? Can the previous spammy links be disavowed easily?
  2. Thanks for the advise. The other things I'm worried about are whether it is de-indexed or penalised by Google. Any way to check for an expired domain name? Also, what do I look out for in terms of backlink profile or metrics to know if it is a good domain to buy?
  3. Which metric will be more accurate?
  4. So yesterday this domain was available for registration. It seems to have good metrics like DA and PA. Not sure why nobody wanted to register it. And then it got picked up. Is it good as a main site or even as part of a pbn or something similar? The site is: seattle-nightlife.com
  5. Thanks for this comprehensive reply. Never knew there're so many white hat seo techniques. I will definitely look more into them as I am building a website that I hope will be around for a long-time.
  6. It doesn't always require high quality or even many links for their page authority to go up? I've seen some accounts with barely 1-2 backlinks and their PA goes up to >45. Granted other metrics may also have positively influenced it. The reason is that I do use some of these social or web 2.0 sites without taking into account their SEO value, so I thought I may as well try to increase their authority by doing some 'white hat' seo or something similar. Also, from what I've seen, it doesn't take much effort at all for some of these high authority domains to increase the PA of their pages, correct me if I'm wrong.
  7. Got myself excited for nothing. How about pinterest and reddit as I see they're dofollow as well. Are they worth building on if I can raise their 'page authority'?
  8. For the Web 2.0 properties, I intend to get those already with some authority and backlinks. I think they're still a good diversification strategy since they're practically free to acquire and maintain. Will this be beneficial and worth it? About owning high authority domains, I've always thought buying domains with good metrics will be very expensive. But since I've an old scrapebox, I decided to research a bit and have now found quite a few expired domains that can be registered. Just not sure if they're banned from google or something since nobody seem to want to register them. How do I find this out?
  9. Thanks guys. They're from LinkedIn profile and company pages. Got me excited for a while as I thought they've permanently dofollow their links. But as it turns out, they are visible only when logged in, and this makes them nofollow right?
  10. Thanks for the replies. If they have higher "page authority", does this help?
  11. So for the 2nd one, it is the rel="noopener noreferrer" that makes it nofollow?
  12. Hi guys, do you think if building a few links from Web 2.0 like from Wordpress.com, Blogspot.com and Tumblr.com is considered an acceptable link building practice to Google? Is this something frowned upon or pretty normal?
  13. Is the below link code considered a dofollow? <a target="_blank" href="http://example.com" id="ember3615" class="pv-contact-info__action ember-view"> example.com&nbsp; </a> <a rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" href="http://example.com" id="ember1882" class="link-without-visited-state ember-view"> example.com </a>
  14. Thanks for the reply. Yes, traffic from google is my main concern in terms of seo. So, that is good internal links, good keyword research and content and get good backlinks from other sites? Thanks for the reply. Yes, I've had a few small sites, nothing big or even medium sized. But I do have the content all lined up. Ok, the silo is categories and their parent-child relationship? Should I be doing that all throughout my site?
  15. I want to build a site with a lot of content, maybe about 100k posts. What is the best way to get them to rank well in Google? Do I have to build up my domain/page authority to my domain name, build backlinks to my domain name or something else? Thanks
