    what do you think of this idea?

    let's say I want to rank for "cosmetic dentist san diego"

    I go to godaddy auctions and find a domain with legit backlinks, good .edu and .gov backlinks, everything legit. BUT the domain has nothing to do with dentistry. when the domain was live, it was about chimpanzees or something completely unrelated to cosmetic dentist.

    Can I rank that site for cosmetic dentist san diego? or is it better to buy a new domain with no backlinks?

    PS remember folks, I am not talking about using the godaddy domain as a source of backlinks. I am talking about using the godaddy domain as my money site.

    People do this and use the 301 method. (Search it)

    Or just use wayback machine and recreate the original site etc.

    Obviously it makes sense to try and buy domains that are related to what you are trying to rank for.

    The Websites of Most of the service offering blog network post here are acquired like this. Basically, scan for legitimate high PR expired domain then build a new site into it. then offer a service of high PR private blog network.
