I found this expired domain with a killer backlink profile. I mean tons of toolbar PR links (yes I know toolbar PR is way out of date) from VERY legitimate sources (Huffingtonpost, etc..)
Looking at the archive.org record it's abundantly clear this site was scraping news stories from other major sources and re-posting these stories on the site with a link back to the source.
It appears that there was 0 original content on the site.
The site stopped updating on June 14, 2012. Looking back at Google's algorithm change history I can see that on June, 8 2012 Panda 3.7 was released.
In my mind this screams of a site that was probably hit by this algo change.
I have 0% experience with Panda penalties. Though I'd imagine fixing the content on the page would fix the penalty. In this case I'd have all new content.
On the other hand if it was a Manual penalty, I'd imagine it would have expired by now.
Now the question is this: Would you personally think this domain is PBN worthy? Or would you pass due to the nature of the site's previous content.
