    Hi Guys,

    I hope you all know very well about 301 redirection.

    So I'm testing I have got an expired domain same from my niche as I am going to do 301 to my money site. After redirection I will make few comments links with the anchors I am using for my money site & it'll look more natural 301 redirection to Google. We all know it'll give my money site link juice and a good boost.

    Apart from that what are the cons of it? I am testing it first time.

    I'd really love to have your opinions.

    Thanks,
    Imran

    Niche-specific 301 redirect works great and gives a tremendous boost. However, for the commenting part u should use a person name instead of exact anchors.

    Just make sure that the domain (which u will redirect to money site) is not penalized in past. In other aspects u are safe

    If it is the same niche website then it looks natural to your website and that redirection will be good,IMO.

    I've seen some interesting things in SERPS lately using 301 redirects hidden
    in obfuscated javascript where it checks the referrer and redirects normal users
    to a new page and bots to a cloaked page.
