    Hello,

    I found a good domain that I bought and I want to redirect it (301) to my moneysite.
    But, I don't want that SEO guys check Majestic Ahref and other tools and find that I did a R301 with this expired domain.

    Can someone tell me how can I do that please ?

    Thanks a lot guys :)

    First off, does this domain exactly match your niche? Eg your website is about Yoga and the 301 domain is also about yoga?

    Second is the site clean with good anchors and clean history in archive.org going back through all the history?

    Third, even if 1 and 2 tick the boxes, you will prob get no positive impact doing this and better off build it as a PBN and point a link to your site.

    Note: If 1 and 2 do not tick the box you will end up doing more harm than good to your site.

    To hide the domain: You need to add it to one of your hosting accounts and 301 it from there....and create a htaccess file for the domain that blocks bots from accessing it.

    Hello,
    yes the domain is clean and it's my niche.

    "You need to add it to one of your hosting accounts and 301 it from there"
    No problem with that.


    "and create a htaccess file for the domain that blocks bots"
    What do I have to write in this .htaccess ?
    Moreover, if I block googlebot, the redirection will have no interest for my natural SEO, isn't it ? But it could be a nice thing to blog majesticbot and ahrefbot in order that expired domain don't be watchable on majesticseo.com & ahref.com, yep ?

    Thank you very much for your help drogon.

    wahouuuuuu ! thank you VERY MUCH drogon !!!
    That's a nice list ! thanks a lot.

    Just a last question : if I block the majesticbot, the "trust juice" that could be transfered by the expired domain, won't be. It's logical but I would like to have your confirmation :)

    If you need to block from Ahrefs/Majestic, as said above the best way is to alter your .htaccess file. Keep in mind that people who know what they are doing can find your domain by using more obscure link prospecting tools.

    The 'trust juice' will be transferred but obviously the TF of your site on majestics website will remain unchanged when you check since their bot is blocked!

    Sorry to crash a party, but that 301 will most likely not work for you ever. 301s were great a few years back, but these days, you really need to know what you are doing to pull it off. Not to mention you will need time and a really massive domain to see some effect. With cheap domains, I wouldn't even bother. Make a PBN site out of it. I talked about it here, worth a read for you - https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/c...osts-metrics-spam-and-niche-relevancy.916518/
