    Hi everyone,

    I have a website that is only about 6 months old. I've just now started doing some SEO for it. I'd like to experiment with some different strategies here on BHW but I've been warned to be careful of some of them (Xrumer, getting 10,000 backlinks all at once could get you sandboxed, etc.)

    So I had an idea......what if I bought a separate URL and had that one re-direct to my real website.....and then experimented on THAT website? Then if I blow it up and Google penalizes it....who cares! That's my theory anyway.

    But on the flipside if it works, then I should theoretically get more traffic to my real site.

    (I'm a newbie so, sorry if this is a dumb question).

    THOUGHTS?

    Google will know it's a redirect.

    If you want to play with a "fake" site then create a new domain with maybe a single landing page. Put up a nice article and link it to your main page. Then you can promote this domain and do whatever you want and still get some benifits to your main page.

    A lot of SEOs do this with all of their clients, I don't think you'll run into any problems. If you mess with it for a couple weeks and get sandboxed, you'd just start over at square 1.

    Thanks for the tips. Would it also be a good idea to try some of the higher risk SEO tactics with my blog (which is linked to my site) instead of the main site? Would the main site benefit from it? I don't really care if the blog gets sandboxed or whatever...

    Yes, this is called using a "buffer site." Many people use Scrapebox, autopligg, Xrumer and the like to make their backlinks stronger. If your backlink is linked to well, it is more beneficial to your site than a backlink that is not linked to at all.

    So do you think it would be better to blast my site that forwards to my real site with xrumer, scrapebox, etc. or to do that to the blog that is connected to the site?
