I have 2 month old website (actually new) and I've been stucked on Page 2 for almost last 30 days in low/medium competitive niche. I have been doing it only with SAPE. On Page SEO is good, I've got 15 sub-pages with 15 articles 600+ words each (every article for 1 keyword) with proper SILO architecture. Last few days I started with building Web 2.0s and other backlinks to diversify my backlink profile and anchor texts, but I would like to push it to Page 1 with 301 redirect(s). So, I'm not sure exactly how it works with a kind of "protection". Some people recommend buying/building 301 redirects with Web 2.0s protection, but I am not sure how it works. I have two questions: 1.) Not sure that I understand how that layer of protection works. If there is another barrier between my site and the authority site, wouldn't that affect my ranking? Will I still get the same results using the Web 2.0s as a protection layers? 2.) How safe is it buying 301 redirects directly to money site? How many of them can I get without getting high chance of penalty?
