Expired Domains for SEO

Does anyone buy expired domains for SEO purposes? If so, what kind of “metrics” do you look for in a domain? We all know that pagerank is dead, but what about MOZ metrics like DA and PA? Or, do you just go for backlinks?

Although PR are dead. people still look for that metric while registering expired domains. Also DA, PA, TF are some of important factors beside domain age and presence of keyword in the domain.

I purchase expired domain names for SEO, backlinks remain important for some ad networks and also other metrics like DA . Selecting the domain is a complicated procedure

PA DA and Inbound link are also important.
