    Anyone have experience with this?

    Instead of building a PBN, just 301 redirect your expired domain to a web 2.0? You still get a contextual backlink out of it and get the link juice pumping it up. Maybe the effects wouldn't be as strong? I can't imagine why.

    No problem with that, it adds a little bit of variety if you're building a variety of Tier 1 links

    A good set of tier 1's have came from this in my experience. It costs roughly $100-$120, but those links are forever strong.

    I am assuming that in this particular case you 301 straight from your domain registrar (without hosting) to keep it cost effective, correct?

    I actually have 2 PBN's set up and running right now. I do ti directly from the registrar level rather than hooking it to my hosting and possibly having my dots connected.

    Its a good idea. If you have budget then surely you can try. Getting links from fresh web 2.0 will work but if you can boost it with expired PBN its way too good.

    Yes this is what I was thinking. No hosting involved.

    301 redirecting straight from the registrar is something I don't have a good experience with.

    301 redirects are most effective from domains, which have some content on them and are ranking for same or similar KW you are trying to rank for. At least in top 100.

    So what I would do, and is advised to do, is to host the domain, put on some article targeting keyword, let it rest for a few weeks, let it gain some natural rank (it's expired, so it will rank in top 100) and then redirect it. Definitely more effective. When you redirect straight from the registrar + the domain isn't even indexed, Google doesn't really have too many reasons to recrawl it or give you too much credit. Keyword relevancy here is the key.

    Interesting point Nargil, thanks for bringing that up. So essentially you could restore the domain using wayback machine, let it sit, cook up some spun articles (maybe? you are redirecting anyways) and then redirect. Unfortunately that brings hosting back into the equation, but could hugely cut down on costs of populating the blogs with content. Time to head to the test lab...

    Did you redirect from the registrar or host it then redirect?

    Why does it cost so much?

    I don't think that there is anything wrong with this idea... A lot of people do it this way...

    You have to factor in the cost of the domains, that's not really that much money if you're keyword research is done properly.
