I am creating a number of sites using aged domains (so they have existing PR and backlinks) and have a few questions for anyone who has experience with this method of link building:

1. How much does Google recognize and penalize?
More specifically, will my sites be penalized for...
...having the same whois information?
...being registered under the same domain registrar?
...being hosted under the same web host? Therefore, sharing the same IP?
OR...is it just overall best for SEO to make all these as different as possible?

2. Because I'm buying old domains, sometimes I have found that the existing backlinks are adult-related links which I would prefer not to have. Is there a way to remove or block these inlinks? I assume having adult-related backlinks is not good for promoting a non-adult related website. Can anyone confirm this? Or is a lot of backlinks a lot of backlinks?

3. When linking to my client's sites, does anyone have any information on the breakdown of link power (right term?) between contextual, sidebar, navigation, footer, header, etc.? I understand that contextual links are most powerful, but by how much? Can anyone give me a percentage?

That is all for now. I hope there are some good, experienced fellow web marketers out there that can help me! (and hopefully other people looking for the same answers can find them here!)

Thanks in advance.

Sorry but you should try another forum if you want to learn how to spam the search engines.

So you're saying that this is not the best strategy and it could cause some problems for my clients?

It seems to me that a lot of SEO tactics are considered spammy. My thought was that if I had informative, relavent sites linking to other related sites then there would be no problems.

Am I totally off base?

I think your questions imply that you're going to attempt to probe the algorithm to see what you can get away with. Jill encourages people to work within the guidelines rather than look for weaknesses in them.

Then they're not SEO, they're search engine spam, or web spam.
