    I recently bought an expired PR4 domain.

    Google says that if you want to move a site you simply have to use a 301 redirect and all your backlinks will be redirected to the new URL.

    So what if I take the PR4 domain I bought (has a PR5 .gov backlink) and 301 permanent redirect it to one of my main sites?

    Will I get a PR4 + the backlinks the expired domain had before?

    CLick Thanks if you think this method is awesome
    Blame me if I'm talking totally bullsh*t :poke:

    I'd use it. Whether it works as well as it should, I don't know.

    If this works, I'd like to do it too. Can anyone advise on this? Also, will this get your site sandboxed? How can you tell if a competitor is doing this?

    It's a fairly common practice. Many people buy older domains just to add backlinks to their sites or 301 the domain to another site. Keep in mind that the 301'd backlinks will help by providing link juice but unless the backlinks have anchor text that matches the targeted keywords of the site you're redirecting the links to, you won't get the full benefit.

    Still a good way to prop up a site though, especially if it's a high PR. Check to see if there were specific pages on the domain that had high backlinks and if so, set up 301s for those specific pages otherwise the next time Google crawls them they will come up as 404s and you won't get any benefit from them.

    I think this method has been around since the dawn of SEO. But I think its clever that you have came to this assumption on your own and didn't have to learn about it somewhere else. Show you are one of the few that actually know how to use that thing attached to your neck. Keep up the good work.

    Yeah, if you were able to enter a list of soon to expire domain names (Which you can find anywhere really), enter it into a script/application which pulls up the page rank of the domain, along with how many backlinks, you can pretty much buy the backlinks at a low-price, you could buy a domain with 10,000 back links for $1.99 (If it was a .info)

    Yes, it will work. You just need to get an expired domain from your niche, with backlinks from your niche too for great results.

    It does not really matter if your niche is different. If an expired domain iwith good PR is redirected to your new url, your rankings will most certainly improve.

    Why not just make an on-topic site with your new expired domain , and link to your main site? But yeah, 301'ing expired domains has worked for me in the past...

    It worked for my site, went from a PR0 to a PR2 in about 2 weeks.
