    Hi.
    New here. Great forum...

    I was wondering how closely you guys tend to look at existing backlinks when you buy domains for resale.
    I really don't know much about domaining. Does the kind of spammy previous history associated with a deleted domain that makes it less popular for seo (pbn) use make it less valuable or even worthless to folks who are planning on reselling or selling to end users who aren't necessarily planning on using it for seo leverage?

    Conversely how much would a positive previous backlink profile contribute to the value of a domain?

    Just wondering why none of these newbie guides mention backlinks.
    I would think that would be really important.

    It depends what you want to use it for.
    For pbns sure - backlinks are important but I think even more important is the number of referring domains and their quality.
    And I thought pbns are not that effective anymore with the latest algorithm changes. Sites can even get penalties for obvious use of pbns.

    I keep hearing that from some people.
    Other people swear by em.

    What I was really wondering is if it's common practice to check the backlinks before one buys a dropped or auctioned domain.
