    Lets say I wanted to buy up a series of say 5 keywords as URLS

    and point them all to one page

    Would this be a disasterous and monstrous faux pas with G and thus a huge cock up?

    I think it depends on how you "point" them. As far as I know, the way to do this without the risk of a penalty would be to use 301 redirects.

    Yep 301's and 302's will pass juice without penalty!

    Ok well I was thinking just using links. Rather than 301s is that not a bit fairer on the customer or should I just be agressive and get the coders to run 301 and 302s?

    you can do the 301 and 302 from your registrar's control panel :)

    If it were me... I'd just build 5 slightly different landing pages and point each of the 5 urls to a different landing page.

    It isn't that much work and each of the 5 pages can (read SHOULD) be tweaked for each keyword set.

    I've done this where I've even replicated a primary site multiple times and tweaked every page in the site (well, only 5 or 6 page sites so not a ton of work).

    If your going to spend the money for the url's... go the extra mile and really optimize it. The payoff will be better and the G factor can work in your favor this way.
