So I wanted to share my trick for incubating domains that you are not going to currently use, but will be using in the future. This works wonders, and when you are ready to use your domain, this will generate a good amount of traffic to your new site! 1.) Find an active forum that is related to the niche of your domain name, ping it in cmd prompt and get the IP for the forum. 2.) Go to your domain control panel and point the A Record to that forums IP. 3.) Once DNS has propogated check type in your domain name and make sure the forum your pointing to pulls up. 4.) Submit a few links to digg to make sure google knows where your at. Sit back and forget about it! I've done this with several domains I owned but wasnt currently working on it. One was about computers, so I pointed the domain to a very active computer forum. Within a month I had 3000 posts indexed, and was even outranking the original forum on lots of posts! Time came when I wanted to develop a blog related to computers on the site, I pointed the domain back to my hosting, and setup a 404 file that redirected all dead links back to the homepage. That way all those indexed links that are now dead will send you traffic straight to your homepage! Not to mention, my site gained a PR3 after those 6 months. So just wanted to share with you my method for incubating unused domain names.
