    I've built quite a few money sites that have done relatively well over the years naturally - not much back linking. I've also built about 30 web 2.0's over the last few years just to age them and eventually do something with them. So, in the last month I got the suite of tools to find expired domains, and I'm finding what I think are gems. Clean profiles and at least a handful of links from NY Times, HuffPo, etc..

    I'm interested in powering up the aged web 2.0's with links now.

    My question is- these expired domains I'm finding often have 3-10 power links. (Usually failed businesses that got some write ups, but never went anywhere). Would it make sense to purchase these domains and do a registrar redirect to the web 2.0's? In other words, would the web 2's get the juice from the NY Times type links?

    Yea. You need the web 2.0s to be high quality and relevant though to lower the chance of those links being removed.

    Also you could just 301 the domains straight to your money site rather than to the web 2.0s.

    I'm with David here - 301 to your money site for the majority of them as long as their history is clean (you'll need to use the wayback machine or some other such thing for that).

    As far as relevancy goes- let's say the domain is a guy's name. He wrote a book about painting. Had a link from Times and HuffPo, and the article was about the guy, and the anchor text was his name.

    Let's say I 301 that to a web 2 where I sell an unrelated program and ebook. So, not really relevant, but if I mix in 10 relevant contextual anchors, would it allow me to get the power from the NY Times link, but get the relevancy from the other links?

    BTB, thanks for the feedback. I check wayback machine, then toggle back and forth, filtering through AHrefs, Majestic, and can put through MOZ also.

    For the money sites, I'm thinking too many 301's may raise a flag. I'm thinking I'd save that for when I find a hyper-relevant expired domain.

    While I have your attention for a second- let's say I take a cluster of 5 web 2.0's. I find 5 expired domains with a link or two each from Forbes, HuffPo, NY Times (not exactly relevant but neutral) and I registar 301 each site to each Web 2.0. Then, I link from those web 2.0's to the money site. Would the link juice flow through properly, or would you change that strategy?

    One more thing I forgot to ask- is that registrar 301 from the site with an NY times or Forbes link more powerful than a SAPE/PBN or handful of SAPE/PBN?
