Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum, and basically to blackhat SEO in general. Recently, I've become obsessed with ranking a new authority site we are working on. I've gone on a typical newbie binge of buying domains - mostly super relevant - and found myself with a pile of spam! Not all of them, thankfully. Some of them are super clean. Others are very clean but not as relevant. Most are old brand names that had bad directory SEO and lots of old links that bring down trust flow (although the DA and PA are over 30+). Naturally, some of them are great as is. Others I can see being a 301 redirect to perhaps another PBN or even a 3rd tier parasite site linking to a PBN. Is that an effective strategy? These domains aren't filthy - they just have a lot of back links from directories and other not-so-super-relevant sites (which I hear is what you need for a 3rd tier). Keep in mind, most of these are DIRECTLY in the same exact niche so it wouldn't be crazy to redirect them (once they are cooked properly of course) to a web 2.0 property in the same niche, or even another PBN. Thanks for your help! V.
