    Is it worth to buy domains for redirection and pass link juice?


    I met a guy recently who is officially selling domains for redirection.
    He explained me that a simple redirection is the safest way to simply pass link juice to your site.

    I believe that if such domains are not associated with any Google penalties or spam history they could really help.

    What do you think?

    Yep they can be, if their cheap watch out, your better off educating yourself and with a couple of tools you do better than anyone selling them unless you have money to burn cause the good ones are expensive but then you only need one.

    Well except checking their domain authority and if they are penalty-free, then what else is needed?
    And this is something that I can't create myself. It could possibly bring extra value through a channel that I am not currently having.

    Also the plan is to check the results after buying one and then maybe a new domain will be bought every 1-2 months.

    As long as you know there are risks.

    If you're asking this question, it says to me that you shouldn't be doing it on any domain you care about. Maybe do some testing on a domain you don't care about first?

    What it should say to you is that I haven't done before and I request some advice by someone more experienced. Its quite simple actually.

    So, have you done something like this before? Yes or no?
    If yes, can you tell us what exactly should I be careful about?
    If no, then thank u for your contribution, but I would prefer for someone with the experience to reply.

    Yup, I've done this kind of thing in the past.
    I don't do it anymore though.

    This is an open space to help each other, if you're going to talk to me with that kind of attitude don't expect help from me

    This sounds shady and like 'black hat' tactics to me.
    Tread carefully.

    That's why I am doing my research. I wouldn't like to be involved into any black hat activities, but this method is just a redirection.

    Shouldn't have any penalties risk as it would be very easy for anyone to make a redirection to a competitor and have Google penalise him.
    On the other hand I prefer to hear the real experiences from other members, than just reading pointless comments of "educate yourself".

    So, me saying that you should have a play with domains which don't matter first, so you can learn, is completely unreasonable? How do you think everybody else has learnt?

    I wouldn't like to be involved into any black hat activities
    If this is the case, pack up now. This is about as black hat as you can get.

    In the future, when you're requesting free help from a forum - just a tip, don't act like a spoilt child. You might get better responses. We aren't obliged to help you, anyone who responds is being generous. The advice above is more than sufficient.

    Never wrote that anyone is obliged to answer me in any of my posts. Don't put wrong meanings as my words.
    Also u seem selective when u are reading the posts.
    I have already thanked other members for their contributions.

    Probably it seems that because u r a moderator u r allowed to insult members. "Spoilt child" ? Really?
    Do u think that u r talking to your buddies?
    Is that a professional comment?

    We aren't in a professional environment. You also aren't my client, why do I need to be professional?

    I didn't call you a spoilt child, I said you were acting like a spoilt child. There's a big difference. One is a direct insult, the other is an observation of your behaviour.

    I offered you genuine advice, in my opinion, your reply was clearly rude - and judging by others reactions, they thought so too.

    Anyway, I'm not having a fight in the playground, good luck in your endeavours.

    Yes, you can buy a domain and redirect. After redirection, all link juice will be passing. then you don't have to work start from zero.
