    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.

    Sounds very interesting.

    What about any legal issues? do you think that there is any risk?

    The worst that would happen is they sent you a C&D, but I have not had any issues.

    Also too I wanted to note these important things.

    Pick a forum that doesnt use full anchor links. So that way when your site is pointing to it, you can navigate the inner pages and still stay on your same domain. If they are using full links, it wont be very useful!

    And for the people PMing me, A Record is the address of the webserver. Make sure you can pull up the forum by that IP too... for instance, this method would not work with digital point forums as you cannot resolve the IP to the forum,(probably using mod_rewrite for this).

    Another thing that works is to make a 302 redirect to a high authority site and link spam the domain, then wait for a couple of weeks and remove the 302 redirect, but remember to have content already when removing the 302 redirect.

    Also you can do 301 redirect but then your passing the link juice to the other domain so its better with an 302.

    I thought this trick had stopped working some years back.
    Guess not!

    awesome tip! Any advice on how to change the ip address / A list with godaddy? I've spent 15 minutes looking through help files and clicking everything and can't find the option at all.

    Thanks again!

    Well godaddy is hella easy.
    1.) Login to My Domains, select your domain that you are going to incubate.
    2.) You will see the option that shows the host / IP... just change the IP its currently pointing to (which is probably a godaddy park page) to the forum IP.

    Would this HURT the original domains SEO at all?
    I mean couldnt you have 5 domains on one topic and do this to 4 of them, and have 5 times as many se results?

    Sorry, I have a question: Could you give me exact record for DNS? Because if you will point on the IP, you can get some other domains on this server.
