    Is it going to benefit my website's rankings if i buy expiring domains from the same niche and then 301 redirect to my main site.

    If they are from the same niche, this is one way, but it's always better to mix a little and build from some of the domains good quality websites with unique content in a real private blog network without footsteps, which will provide longevity and flexibility.
    Diversity is important while link building!

    It should work in my opinion; is your money site a new site? or a site that got hit by panda/penguin?
    If it is new site, then you will see results or else it wont have any impact on your money site.

    Agreed. 301 does work great. Just make sure the expired domain is clean and was quite aged with less no of drops.

    Personally I would not 301 redirect to my domain if the only purpose is to improve ranking... I think it still works but my concern is that it leaves a very obvious footprint... However if the old domain brings in traffic too then its a great idea... Otherwise I would establish content and drop a link on the home page with regards to building a PBN making sure its on a different nameserver in order to minimize your footprint with G detecting it... Good luck with it!

    In addition make sure it has good authority and trust metrics... Don't rely on PR as it is easy to fake....

    I haven't tried that exactly.
    I have tried 301 in different forms and I know that works, and I have heard lots of people saying what you are suggesting works.

    i think there are a few services here related to those exact methods now as well.
