Buying Old Established Websites/domains
Posted 05 November 2007 - 06:52 PM
I have a list of 500 URLs of websites that are in my business niche. Some of them are well established, but haven't been updated a while. The thing is that I can try to buy some of them with all the content. I can also try to but domains only. The question is: what's better to do with such websites? I have a new 3 month old domain which I want to go through the aging delay as fast as it can be.
Is it better to 301 redirect all URLs from the old website to some page on my website with the new domain? Or it's better to redirect every page on the old website to some page on it, which contains only a link to my new website? (To get the link juice from it).
Please, give me some advices on the ways to gain trust in Google with a new domain which's never been indexed.

I've read the helpful threads you gave me. An I have no questions regarding the aging delay.
But may I ask for your advice on the using whole related websites or just domains with established PR and backlinks? Is it possible to use them for gaining more backlinks/pagerank/trust/etc? What's the best way to transform all their power into mine?
Sorry for the silly explanation of the question.. English isn't my native language

On the other hand, if you 301 redirect them to your main site they will eventually pass along their authority, in theory. This process typically takes 4-6 months to see the full effect.
I say In Theory above because there is no guarantee in either case. If/When the search engines realize these other domains are now under different ownership they may choose to dampen the effect, or they may choose to throw those domains themselves back into the aging delay pile because of an ownership change. It would make sense for the engines to reset them, seeing the purchases as an attempt to gain an unfair advantage.
