    Will i rank my website (not new, PR3) for low competition keyword using 301 redirects of 3-4 expired domains with PR3 and no spammy backlinks profiles (the same niche) ?

    Algo? Let's play with you.
    Nobody knows, there are too many parameters that may affect it...
    Just keep building links until it ranks, even if it will take half a year - this way you study best during the process.

    I have tested it, yes it works but after a while my redirects where penalized by google when i when over 5 redirects from the same ip.

    2 redirects from the same ip works for me. you need more redirects spread it over multiple hosters.
    it works but they are very strict on penalizing to much redirects from the same ip.

    just my experience btw :). just keep a eye out on your rankings if they drop 1 or more domains are penalized.
    Works great on high comp keywords, so it should deff work for low keywords.
    don't over do the redirects.

    It works but it doesn't work as well as it used too. At least not for me anyway. Also when I do use redirects, any SEO that I perform afterwards doesn't seem to work as well (if at all). That's in my experience though, of course it's different for anyone else using different domains etc.

    if you are basing the authority on the PR then you are doing it wrong. PR is not an accurate representation of authority. one pr 3 link maybe have no authority and another might have lots of authority. Use things like CF, TF, PA and DA

    So you just buy expired domains with nice stats (DA, PA,PR,CF and TF) and redirect them to your money site?

    Btw one tip which can save you money, while this works great there are cheaper ways to do this.
    by using 301 redirects from short links (keyword based).
    Bit more difficult to use. if you use it correct this works great to since most of the shortlinkers have high da pa ect.

    But do some investigation first, dont go and make 100ths of shortlinks this way :p

    Doesn't work like it used too a year ago, but it still works, just requires more domains, and won't be as powerful.

    Ranking on Google can only be determined by Google and keywords that appear low competition, despite having low search volumes would often prove hard to rank.

    301 still works, just need a good domain to 301.

    I went from #10 to #1 with just 1 301 that had 500 links and 20TF

    The competition was not that great, I would say it was a low/med comp but shows 301's still work

    Are you using a relevant domain? I mean does it matter if you use an expired domain that is not related to your money site.

    Are those 500 links good links?

    one more question: on my hosting I can also make a 301 redirect.
    Will it have the same effect on SEO when I do it on the hosting, or should I do it manually?
