Is it better to use a iffy aged domain, or start fresh?

Generally speaking....

I have a couple of aged domains that I bough, all with somewhat iffy metrics.

I was going to use and monetize, but on the other hand, it may be best to start fresh with a brand new domain.

i've only recently learned about filters and standards in terms of buying brand new aged domains. stuff like PA, DA, TF and so on. I will be holding it to higher standards in future.

Here are the kind of metrics I'm evaluating whether to use:

Domain 1:
PA: 20
DA: 33
Trust Flow: 0

Domain 2
PA: 1
DA: 17
Trust Flow: 4


Domain 3
PA: 40
DA: 28
Trust Flow: 3

And my options are:
- use them
- toss them away and buy brand new domains, and build up a PBN to rank them with
- keep looking for aged domains with better metrics instead (easier said than done).


What are your thoughts on the above?

    None of those numbers mean anything. What matters is the links pointing at those domains. By themselves, those metrics can be highly inaccurate.

    You can check out expired domain name list and see if you can find one there with lots of backlinks.

    Yeah you should look more towards backlinks and the referring domains pointing towards it. Best would be to build them as PBNs and rank your sites with it.
