    Is this correct. Are there any special precautions I need to take? Do I just but hte domain name and then transfer it to my hosting account and it will keep the domain age in googles eyes?

    I'm not an expert on this but i think i may have seen threads before saying you need to keep the content the same at first and gradually change it.

    What would be the best way to buy one and then redirect it to another site so I can start blasting it with links? Do I still need to do that gradually.

    Google doesn't care about whois changes so long as the domain is not being used for malicious purposes. Keep it clean, and you can get all of the linkjuice from the previous lifetime of the domain :)

    what about expired domains? do they start over in age? I know it sounds self explanatory, but i hear different answers to this

    No precautions needed. As long as you win the auction, the domain age remains intact.

    Only those domains that were fully dropped back to the registrar for public to register, will have their domain age reset when you register them as a new domain instead of getting them on the auction.

    If you still have doubts, write in and ask them, their support team are been paid to answer your doubts too. :D
