Hi everyone,

My client has a nice portfolio of keyword-rich domains, any of which would be perfect for a website for his business. Since he already runs 2 sites that he's trying to optimize now, he's not sure what to do with the domains.

My first thought was that instead of parking them at GoDaddy, he should at least forward them to his main site, and at least capture the traffic from them instead of sending it to GoDaddy.

What do you pros out there do with extra domains? Is it worth creating a few 1-3 page informational sites to capture leads, or is best just to forward?

Thanks in advance.

Forword them on with a permanent redirect (HTTP 301 response)

okay, thanks for the tip. Can this be done via the GoDaddy control panel?

That's a question for Godaddy. They probably have help files online which explain it.

Although, from what I've heard at least in the past, it was very difficult if not impossible to get a real 301 redirect from Godaddy. Even when they told people it was 301 it was actually 302 (which you don't want).

Perhaps they've fixed this issue now, but I don't know.

I think the best way is to forward all extra keyword rich domains using 301 permanent redirect to the 2 sites which he is currently optimizing.. Keeping them as parked wont generate any good money because now a days internet surfers are well aware of a parked page and hardly anybody will click on the ads displayed there. so instead of doing that better to redirect those to the 2 sites, this way they can get some good back links to boost their ranking.
