I did this case study back in Dec 2011 and have posted it in my Private forum (don't ask me for the url, it's private for my own case studies). My previous thread: --> How I survived Panda 3.3 - An Optimization Guide - HARDWORK REVEALED Here's The Exact Post: I have been thinking about this case study for quite some time. I have a website www.EMDxxx.com with 90K Exact Search Volume. Am dancing between 3rd and 4th Page. There are a couple of Country specific EMD's available/unregistered. Eg. www.EMD.co.in or www.EMD.org.in We all know Google values EMD on the contrary from some critics. Let's see how it works for a country level EMD if we 301 redirect it to an established site sitting at 4th page. DAY 1: 28th Dec 2011 Registered: www.EMD.co.in and www.EMD.org.in (cost me $8 ) Even they are Country (India) specific domains, I will be targeting only Google.com . Hosted them on 2 separate C class Ip's from seohost.com. 301 redirected both the new domains using cpanel to the Main site. (Wildcard Redirect) PRESENT RANKING: SEO/ Link Building on those domains: ---- Built 500 High PR Blog posts and 2000 Social Bookmarking to the Newly created domains. (used 5-6 keywords) ---- Sent 50K Auto Approved Blog comments to each Domain. (used 10-12 keywords) (TOTAL 100K) RANKING AS ON 2nd JAN (main keyword): CASE STUDY CLOSED Conclusion: It works.. !! I might have got a better ranking if I would have tried to index the emd.co.in and emd.org.in domains with a simple wordpress script with 2-3 spunned content and 301 redirected it. Nevermind, it worked and got a good bump in the SERP's with a small budget. If you don't Reply to this thread, it will Die..... REPUTATION will be much appreciated.
