    Hey,



    one of my competitors started their service 4-5 months ago and their SEO rankings have been blown up.



    Website: youtubnow.com



    YouTube Converters are a pretty high competitive niche, however they made to succeed withtin a short time period. I've checked some of their stats on moz and ahrefs and noticed they got a pretty strong backlink game.



    I was wondering what kind of strategy they are using? Are they just purchasing backlinks from a company or freelancer? Or are they actually putting all the work in to build those backlinks manually?



    I would appreciate if someone could bring some light into the darkness so I could maybe replicate the proccess.

    It's a 301 redirect.

    Feed that site into ahrefs and you could see the 301 redirect that was used.

    You mean from kcoolonline .com? - Yeah, I noticed this domains redirects to their main-URL. But whats the point in doing it like this? I've seen multi competitors in that niche doing that.

    301 redirect mean "permanent" power over. 302 means temporary.

    I would assume they would hunt and purchased for expired domains that is in the same niche with good backlinks and 301 redirect thise domains to their main url.

    If u spend $300 per month on SEO might as well mix in some good 301 redirect domains. I suppose. Hope some SEO guru would enlightened us.
