    I found an expired domain which is in the same business and the same country as the site of a client. Its from a different city, but not that far away. The BL profile is very natural, only citations etc. Would it be a bad idea to 301 this site to my clients site? I know that you shouldnt use BH methods on a client´s business site, but it´s not rare that a business moves to another cíty to provide his local services there. In these cases they will naturally 301 their old site to the new site, so imo this 301 will not be a red flag to g00gle.

    About my client´s site:
    Its 1,5 years old, diversified BL profile, very diversified anchor profile and ranking on page 1 for all the relevant KWs. So even if the 301 might be suspicious, I think the site has enough authority to handle it.

    Of course I could just link from it, but the 301 will transfer more link juice than a link.

    What do you think?
