    i can imagine that in the past people have thrown loads of dropped domains at their websites, but today thats changed.

    How many domains can be linked to a website these days, i have a local dental site that is built on a free website builder so has a free subdomain attached, but i have found 3 domains and i cant choose which to attach. Can you attach another 3 without worry, or just 1 or 2. I can see that they more domains the more link building work, but id concentrate on 1 after i let them settle and see which naturally and organically ranks the best.

    thanks @jefis , when you do connect them, how do you work with the upto 5 domains? do you work with just 1 as in link building and social shares as well as doing url and naked anchor texts or do you work on all the domains youve 301d ?

    The 301 domains are purely to increase the authority and boost main 1 which is money site. Any link building or social shares would be to your main money site.

    I dont see a reason for link building on the 301 domains unless you plan to sell them later and improve its metrics aswell.

    Great thanks @Mrblackhw . I was thinking about pushing a different expired domain as the one that's ranking at the moment is a free sub domain from the website builder that the site was built on.

    In that case I would rather push the expired domain as thats one you actually own. This way you can either use the expired one in future or if you get another one as your main then 301 to that after.

    I used to do and still doing this way,

    Let's say I have 5 topics on the website and 5 pilar/biggest articles.

    I'm pointing 1 domain to each article. And one to the Main domain if i feel if the boost is needed


    I might be wrong, but i never had issues doing this.

    But, save number if you cant take the risk is up to 3.
