    I have a web application. It's an innovative 2 year project with real value that is finally in the marketing phase.

    I have a method very specific to this site that allows me to get .gov and .edu backlinks from sites. This method is not going to work for any other site, trust me - ive thought about it alot. If it would work with other sites - i would be making them. So im not going into detail about the method.

    All we need to know is these backlinks are very whitehat. They want to link to me.

    But - they want to link to specific pages. Each external site will link to a different page. These are pages that are not going to rank for anything. Pages that are actually noindexed due to internal dupe content issues.

    I'm loving the authority these links are passing to the domain. But i would really like to funnel this juice to pages that are going to rank.

    So my options so far are.

    1. Do nothing - accept the juice and keep it whitehat.

    2. 301 some or all of the pages to pages i want to rank.
    This could work, the pages i want to rank and the pages that are getting linked to are basically the same topic. However i would guess google is not going to like me doing this en masse. So maybe i could do it for just a few. I could probably get away with this as far as the linking sites are concerned. I doubt they would notice / care. Hard to explain, but take my word for it.

    3. Index the page, strip it of dupe content, and only have 1 OBL on the page pointing to a page i want to rank.
    This could also work. Once i get the link, i can remove the dupe content and add original content. But its going to be less powerful than a 301. Also i could somehow remove the header navigation links for maximum effect - but this would look pretty weird. Possibly too far.

    So i would like to know your thoughts. What would you choose? Do you have other ideas?

    I owe my business to this place. Prove to me BHW is still great!

    I think option 1 would be good enough, you could get other link types to rank actual pages. edu gov should be good for diversity

    If I were you, I would make tons of different pages and put custom content on all those pages.

    I would then unite them by linking them to a fix number of categorical pages.

    I will keep repeating this pattern until I get to my money site.

    Since you're already getting heavy .edu and .gov leechers, these can translate to quite a hefty payday for you if you do it right.

    Of course, you can't be obvious about it.

    You can't get sloppy.

    As long as you put together a nice map of how these websites are linked together, you should be good to go.
