    I hear a lot about buying aged domains for your niche. Lots of benefits and shit and all that.

    One benefit besides the domain age is the links back to the domain. These links are built by the previous owner. These backlinks are good until they are taken down or deindexed.

    Soooo... The links to the main domain are good. What about the links to the inner pages. Ain't they still good too? Hell yeah they are. But what inner pages?

    Use the wayback machine: http://www.archive.org/

    Enter your domain name and find a previously cached snapshot of your domain and click links to inner pages. Create these same page name urls on your newly acquired aged domain. Add appropriate content, interlink and enjoy the inner page link juice.

    Disclaimer: I aint ever bought an aged domain but I know this will work through other experiences.

    Yeah that's actually what some people like to do, but i guess it isnt used much unless they really have the domain name that you want and the price isnt too steep. People usually sell aged domains with good page rank for more of course, so you'll have to consider your investment carefully. You can try tdnam.com.

    Another alternative short of entirely recreating the site from the cached archive is to find the old site map (or piece together as much of it as you can), and then just set up 301's for all the links and point them all at your front page.
    If you're extra lazy you can just fire up TrafficTravis or Yahoo site explorer and find where all the backlinks are pointing and do the same.

    If you're using wordpress you can use the excellent redirection plugin, no work at all really.

    Well I don't know much about 301 redirects but I assume it would be better to just revive the inner pages and add some content relative to your keyword. That is if the pages fit well with your niche.

    Would you 301 direct all these pages back to the homepage and start all over again building your own content and new pages to the site? Why not use the subpages that are already there? Pages that already have inbound links. Pages that may have ranked in google at one time and may carry a little weight for that.

    I'm not saying recreate the site.... I'm saying use some urls of already established pages in this aged domain to give you an even bigger head start.

    Thanks, nice tips. Though I'd rather register a new domain and start from there.

    I used aged domains all the time, they work GREAT.

    I use registercompass (dot com) to buy them (through godaddy auctions).

    You can find PR3 aged domains for $11 buy it now all the time, once you get good wtih register compass and setting filters.

    Well like I say, if you're doing this on the Wordpress platform download the redirect plugin and you're good to go, just paste in the entrance URL and the destination, works a treat.

    Replicating the site is generally a good idea, 301's do the same thing, just take a while for the page juice to trickle through :D (The one I did it on I managed to get ahold of the sitemap, so I had names and URLs for all the sections but not alot else :D).

    As for the redirection, entirely depends what the page rank of the main page is. There comes a certain point where adding more inbound low PR links isn't really going to help all that much anyway :D

    When people thingk to buy an aged domain, we didn't want the SEO or the backlinks of this site.We want the fact they are old.

    Google consider that pages that are in internet for 10 years, for example, jas to be good to survive for so long time, by the other siide, new domains coluld be black hat site,trying to cheat the results and bad quality content.

    So, the idea is to get a site that has been indexed by Google for many yeras, search engines considers that page still being so good than before...even if you change the content and lost great part of the backlinks

    Aged domains ranks easier than new sites, at least in Google.

    Um.... are you absolutely sure on all that information dragondani? Because you seem to have a bit of a skewed view...
    (not that I don't, but I thought I'd just ask lol)
