    Hello. How does 301 redirect works? I noticed a new service thread on the marketplace saying that it is a black hat method. I remembered reading somewhere on the forum that you could do a 301 redirect and then, you never get caught . So why does the service thread implies that you'll get caught eventually?

    Is a PBN better or 301 redirect better? Im doing a PBN but results have been a bit slow.. If 301 can do good , i don't mind hopping on to it. For 301, if all the stats are good but the anchor text is in chinese or japanese, will you recommend to buy it still?

    japanese or chinese expired domains wont do much for your SEO efforts, since its obvious for Google bots that you are not related to the domains now redirecting to you, probably not a penalty but the link juice wont be much if anything at all

    301 means permanent re-direct a lot of big sites use it whitout any trouble, you can twist it a little bit to get SEO value off of it but you need to be very careful not to abuse this

    this is all speculation by me and my SEO tests and experiments

    i see, so if you were to do a 301 redirect, the anchor text have to be somewhat relevant to what you're ranking for? Isn't buying domain names gonna be a huge challenge?
