    Hei guys, we all know the old churn and burn method of pointing dozens of shorteners to your website and spamming them with GSA using money keywords. I have a simple question. Basically those shorteners are 301 redirecting their backlinks to the main website, so it wouldn't really matter if you had like lets say 10 bitly shorteners pointing to your website (?) I'm wondering if the diversity of domain names would really matter regarding this issue.

    I suggest you use different url shortening services. Your link profile would look dubious if it had many redirects from one domain.

    Thank you for your answer but i was trying to understand if it still carries the same power. I Could mask those links with a buffer website and link to the money site from there.

    Does anyone know the difference between a 301 redirect from a domain and a link shortener 301 redirect ?

    All I can see is that a 301 redirect isn't going to pass any valuable link juice. The 301 itself is functional equivalent, but if you are using expired domains with PR, then you can potentially establish some PR gains that help SEO. So the biggest difference is that, and that if MOST/ALL of your links come from 1 or a few url shorteners, then as was mentioned - your link profile will look suspicious.

    Thanks for your answer, it would look suspicious for a manual review i guess... but would it be worse for seo? Even then, i could point those url shorteners to a buffer site and then point them to my money site right? Imagine that i have a pr 6 or 7 link pointing trough a shortener to my main site or to a buffer site that would link to my main site. Would that be ok?

    Diversify everything in SEO. Be it url shorterners or web2.0s, use many different domains.

    You should use more than one type of shorterners.

    You shouldn't be bothered about the link juice difference between redirects from one domain and redirects from multiple domains since you now know it's not advisable to point only redirects from one domain to your site.

    That's why i asked if it would be better to create buffer sites and send those redirects trough them. Maybe high pr links -> Shortener -> Buffer Website 301 -> Main Website or high pr Links -> Shortener -> Buffer Site Contextual Link to -> Main Site.

    Basically i have some PR 7 and PR 6 links i would like to use in this fashion but i don't know what would work the best or if i should just point them directly to my website.

    If you have strong links point them directly to your site, I don't see why you would want to 301 them unless you are worried about context.

    The links are non related to the main website but i'm worried about the redirects coming from the same domain and i want to make sure that i'm doing the best to keep the juice with this strategy. If using buffer is a solid option or linking directly.

    I decided to test with a new domain to see what i can accomplish with this technique .
