During episode 80 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about building links from reregistered domains to branded IFTTT networks.
The exact question was:
Hey guys, hope you're all doing well. I just wanna thank you guys for this weekly hangout real quick. It has been super helpful and very informative. Keep up the good work guys.
Ok, so my question is about PBNs:
Every now and then when I scrape expired domains I find some with a clean backlink profile, clean anchor text profile, just everything about this domain screams “register me!” except for the WHOis history. When I check these domain on archive.org you can clearly see they were re-registered at some point and used as a PBN or had chinese/japanese content on it or had been used for domain parking.
Let's say I buy these domains and I'm able to reindex them (so no Google penalty) would you build links from these domains to your branded IFTTT network or would you not even do that, because those domains are too risky to use in your opinion??
