    I'm doing SEO for my own local business.

    I don't really want someone finding my B.S. articles and blog comments that link right to my website.

    I was thinking about purchasing a new domain name to point all my blackhat backlinks to, and just forwarding it straight to my original domain in my GoDaddy backoffice.


    I understand it won't completely hide me, but it seems like it will put an additional layer between my business and my blackhat backlinks.

    What do you think, guys? Will this hurt my SEO efforts?

    It is actually recommended to have a proxy domain with 301
    redirect when you spam away with Scrapebox and XRumer.

    Is a proxy domain what I described?

    Or does that mean it should be hosted on a different server too.

    EDIT: Sorry, It's early in the morning. I now realize that my domain name isn't hosted on my server :)

    By proxy domain I meant a domain you buy and redirect via
    301 to you money site. It doesn't even have to be hosted
    anywhere.

    For example, Namecheap allows you to make 301 redirect on
    the domain you purchased from them.

    I am testing this now by blasting my money site to tons of
    AA blogs with Scrapebox via proxy .info domain with 301 redirect.

    Are you trying to rank organically or in Google Places?

    First, Organically.

    But I want to rank in Places after that.

    Thanks for the help.
