    Hi,

    If I want increase the authority of my site, can I buy an expired general topic forum with strong and clean backlinks, restore it with WebArchive and link it to my site (branded anchor) in the footer like "powered by mydomain.com", "owned by mydomain.com", "in partnership with mydomain.com"

    It will work even if the forum have only few pages about the topic of my site ? (my site is multi niched)
    I see that it works for very large authority site, but google does not deal in the same way with the "baby" authority site

    Thanks in advance

    It's nice question, if you put brand or URL anchor at footer it would be ok!

    Why not just 301 redirect it? Surely that will pass all the link juice on..

    Thanks for all your answers! I will do that, the most of the links are on inner page like forum.com/blabla, it's better to recreate these pages of my site.com/blabla for have all the link juice or it's not necessary? no limit to this tactic? I mean I can find and buy a nice expired domain each month and do that ?

    Thanks

    yes but check the domain very truthfully and you cannot do all 301's.
