    1.) Let´s say I blast a site with 1k backlinks with only my KW´s as anchors and 301-redirect it to my moneysite. As I understand it, with the link juice also the anchor text density will flow to my money site, so I should probably blast at least 5k backlinks with non-KW anchors to another site, which is also redirecting to my moneysite in order to keep the anchor density of my MS under 15%. Is that correct?

    2.) What if I use a URL shortener as a redirect to my MS? Will the KW density as well flow to the MS? I know, it´s a 301, too, so probably the same rules apply. However, shorteners have the reputation of working as a filter for spam while letting the link juice through to the MS. Therefore I could imagine that a shortener could filter out the overuse of KW anchors, so that you dont have to worry about density at all.

    3.) Same scenario, but instead of a 301 I am using a buffer site linking to my MS. Do I have to build 5k non-KW anchors, too?

    For clarification: of course I meant KW density

    Hey OP,

    I suggest you treat your 301's the same way you would treat your money site, meaning use anchor text diversity when building links to the 301.

    Also the beauty of a 301 redirect is that whatever keywords and anchors the 301 is ranking for, the domain it forwards to will increase as well for those same keywords and anchors.

    Now while I do use url shortners as 301's, what I usually like to do instead is rank a single page website then 301 it to my money site and BOOM, your rankings shoot up in a week or two once the 301 is fully picked up by Google.

    P.S For real competitive niches I use about 3 or more 301's. ;)

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the input!

    With a 301 I agree with, on my tests with URL shorteners though I made the experience, that you can spam blast them (like you wouldn´t do to your MS) and rank after 1 week. I wonder, if you can blast you buffer sites like that or if the link from it is passing all the spam and KW density through.



    You post your MS to a few high pr url shorteners and blast them. You can also do a tiered shortener system where you have low to mid shorteners pointing on your high pr shorteners.

    Hi Mate!

    From my experience, buffer sites like web 2.0 blogs behave very similar to 301 redirects in the sense that they do pass the link juice and help increase the rankings for your money site.

    The way I do it with buffer sites is as follows

    1. Create a high quality web 2.0 on a site like weebly, tumblr, blogspot, etc

    2. Add a 500-1000 word article to the web 2.0 and optimize the title and body content for the given keywords I am trying to rank for.

    3. Then from within the body of the article, I link out to my main site using my money anchors

    4. To finally wrap it up and power these web 2.0 buffers I build a vast amount of tier 2 links

    Cheers!

    I don't know why this method works, but a lot of people are talking about it. Something about the top 100 rankings and connecting them to the site you want to rank is making them work. Doesn't make sense, but something I def. want to test myself.
