    For those who sell SEO services, do you point the links directly at the customers site or do you point it to your domain and then redirect?`

    Thanks,

    Most people do it towards their own domains and then 301 redirect it and once they stop paying for the SEO monthly service they just redirect them to a new client.

    I use a 301 redirect unless they've purchased something that is business specific like a press release.

    How does this work? You build links to your own domain and than just redirect the traffic?

    Google Says 301 Redirects Do Not Pass Full PageRank & Link Value Tue, 16 Mar 2010 20:02:12 +0000 ? 0comments In a recent interview with Google Product Manager, Matt Cutts, a discussion ensued to indicate that goolge may not be passing page rank from a 301 redirect. It?s not clear from the conversation whether this is from a new domain to another? Or from internal 301 redirects that is typically caused by web design changes. Another possibility is the use of a canonical tag to avoid this. However, we did not get the full story.

    The article said it did pass pr to new site. He said the amount lost was so minimal that a 301 is still the route to go. Have been thinking about doing this for a site that ranks 1 but I can't seem to sell. Maybe I can use it for seo purposes by renting the 301 redirect and ranking a new clients current site. Thoughts?
