    Have a site that is about 1 1/2 years old. On a keyword that's labeled super easy by kwfinder, the site always gets stuck on page 2.
    I'm considering using a SAPE backlink to another domain I own and 301 to the website, just to get the extra push to page 1. From what I understand if things go south, and google penalizes, all I have to do is cut the 301.
    I've been on the fence for two weeks now deciding whether to do this or not. Looking for advice, go ahead should work, or don't do it bad idea.

    Thanks :)

    I'd say go for it, if site is on 2nd page, it isn't making any money, if in any case it gets penalized, just take new domain and transfer content there.

    IMO Sape + 301 does not work anymore and preventing a penalty is better than trying to fix one....so not as easy as you think...as its not just the Sape links that they will look at but any other unnatural links to your site (when sending reconsideration requests).

    Also once you been to jail (penalised) and released from jail (successfully removed penalty) you will still have a criminal record (bad history) so will be hard to rank ever again anyway.

    Better to check your offsite anchor ratio as it might be too high for the keyword (though some claim this is a myth - nbut i think some sites / kws randomly rank with higher anchor).

    Also check your onpage is not overoptimised for the keyword (excessive use of keywords in article etc) Also, just keep building good quality links and check out this post about sites: stuck on page 2

    That link posted above would make sense. The keyword is asinine to try and put on a page without looking like obvious keyword stuffing to visitors. This isn't the keyword, but similar: "coffee alabama". Can put it on pages within the site, but it looks awkward to actual visitors. I suppose if it means looking awkward verses staying on page 2, cover me with pink polka dots.
    I guess I can ask this question as it was something I was wondering. How exact does the keyword have to be when used? For example, "George's premium coffee, alabama's best blend" or "This coffee alabamians agree is the best" or "Looking for coffee? Alabama has a blend". I can probably seed the keyword that way without looking like stuffing, but couldn't find definitive answers on whether the weight is the same as the exact phrase.

    It would definitely be contextual
