    301 Redirect, Google Juice


    My site is for my local window cleaning business wwwdotvisionarywindowcleaningdotcom. The two keywords that myself and my competitors are optimizing for are bozeman window cleaning, and bozeman window washing. One of my competitors uses the URL wwwdotbozemanwindowcleaningdotcom. I know that using keywords in your URL can be helpful but does it help if I use them in a 301 redirect to my site. For example: If I bought the domains wwwdotbozemanwindowcleaningdotnet, and wwwdotbozemanwindowwashingdotcom, and redirected them to my site would I gain some SEO advantage?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Not unless the domains you intend to purchase already have decent links to them,

    I.E. they are expired domains of a previous competitor.
