    Can someone shed some light onto why GWT will show the links belonging to the 301 redirected sites you may have used.

    Example being: You have site a) site b) site c) all 301-ing to the money site.

    The links that site a, b and c have are now also showing on the inbound links of my money sites webmaster tools.

    So clearly the 'link' juice that is being passed along, is getting picked up by the google crawl bots.

    Am i missing a 'buffer site' to stick inbetween the 301's and the money site, would this stop the links being picked up by my money site GWT.. reason i dont want them being picked up, because surely that increases the chances of my money site being flagged by google of some sort?

    Hopefully the above makes sense to someone.

    First of all. You should only 301 a domain if its super relevant and strong.
    Second of all, why would you use a buffer site? Then why not just put some content up on theese domains
    and make a link to your money site?

    And ofc Google will show up the links. Making a 301-redirect is the same as telling Google, that now this domain is moved to this domain.

    Thats how 301 works. You're basically saying google that site a/b/c is moved to a new location called "money site" and you want the money site to be ranked for all the keywords that the site a/b/c are ranking previously. If you want them to not show up, simply create a buffer site/web 2.0 and redirect all 3 domains to this new site and add a link to your money site but this will greatly restrict all the link juice.

    As a matter of fact, pointing multiple 301's to a root domain will still get your site on google's radar. These are all BH tactics and can be well suited for the churn'n'burn kinda sites.

    Whether they appear in your GWT account or not, Google knows about them.

    Yep, Google knows everything. Even what you did last summer!
