    Hi,

    I often come across great dropped domains, with a good TF/CF ratio and no spammy history. I want to use those to boost the SEO of my moneysite, but what is the best way to do this? 301-redirect the domain to my moneysite, or create a landingpage for the new domain and put a link + content on that?

    Thanks in advance!

    You could use the domain developing a blog to boost your primary money site with articles and Links (use separate server) and monetize domain selling articles with links

    But would that be the best way to increase the SERP position of my money site?

    You can do one of a few things, having recently asked about this myself. You could simply redirect it at the hosting level or domain level to your money site, nothing wrong with that, businesses get acquired. You just can't do that a lot. Also Nathan Gotch also is not a fan of doing that only because it can mess with your anchor text ratio, which is "chaotic" he says.
    He has a technique called the White Hat pbn, where you find a domain such as this, and instead of redirecting it, or transforming it into a separate C class hosted pbn, you can mix a little broken link building into the strategy and just retrace the backlinks of the domain to whoever linked out and ask to link to your money site.
    This way you are in control of your anchor text ratio, because you are going after backlinks selectively.
    In fact, you don't even need to buy the domain to do this, you can go and do this anyways!

    I'm not sure your first point counts as white hat seo - more grey or even black hat if the sites are completely unrelated

    If businesses acquire a competitor (like the post I linked to talks about wink), would it not be logical that it would be the same niche? Not sure what gave you the idea I would recommend a non-niche redirect...
