    If I have a nice EMD KW domain but no content on it and setup a redirect, can i safely build backlinks to it for that KW or is it not worth it?

    I'm not sure about this from experience but I have read somewhere that you can successfully invest your time in building backlinks to a redirect domain as long as the site does not redirect the visitors almost immediatly, just give it some extra time so the search engine spiders have enough time to crawl it without being redirected, so i'm not completely sure about this, this is just what I have read, I have only built simple redirect sites so I can post more links in some social networks without getting my url blocked all the time for spam "especially in FB"

    Link juice to that domain will count, but only one copy of your site will index in google - whichever it sees as higher rank. By that I mean you wont have doghouses.com ranking for dog houses and dogkennels.com ranking for dog kennels if they both point to the same site.

    Using a domain to redirect to another, the only benefit is for passing linkjuice to the redirected-to domain.

    Say you have 10k backlinks to domain1 and you 301 redirect it to domain2. Domain2 will benefit from the 10k backlinks pointing to domain1.

    This is good for blasting large blasts with scrapebox. Take a few old domains you don't use, or buy a few .info domains for cheap.. Blast them, so you don't risk your main domain, however all the juice is flowing to your main site. Keeps your main domain squeeky clean from blackhat and reduces the risk of getting sandboxed.

    Many will argue, but yes the sandbox is real. Those who say it isn't, they just haven't been sandboxed before.

    So If I setup a PHP redirection on the domain and it goes to my main site and I decide to scrapebox blast it, is there still a chance for my site to end up in the sandbox? Or should I create 1st tier URLs using Web 2.0 properties and just blast them?

    Don't use a php redirect. edit your .htaccess file and put this in it:
    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.google.com [R=301]
    Replace google with your new domain that you want the old one to redirect to.

    This code is good to use because it will redirect internal links too.

    http://www.oldsite.com/mypage.html

    This code will strip off the mypage.html. If you don't use this code, then it will send them to newsite.com/mypage.html which may not exist. So if you have tons of links out there pointing to specific internal pages on your site, this will preven 404 errors all over your new site.

    And regarding your other question:

    When doing a large blast, use the old domain. When doing high pagerank backlinking with anchor text, use your main (new) domain.

    When I do a 100k blast with scrapebox, I use my redirect domains because they are not always the best of sites.

    When I do a better higher quality blast, maybe of 20k Pagerank 4+ and using anchor text, I will use my main site.

    Keep in mind, just because I load up 100k URL's, I may end up with 30k successfully posted, but only 5k of them will ever show up. You have to overshoot to make up for this.

    When I do Linkwheels, LinkPyramids, article blasts, ect... I use my main site..


    Random large non-specific blasts -- use your redirect domains.
    Specific higher quality blasts -- use your real domain


    .. Just my system. You still need to keep in mind the age of your domain. You will just get a feel of how much you can do safely.
