I just purchased a fairly good, but dead domain name, still has good page rank, and the inbound links are very relevent to my main site.

I want to point the "new" domain to my existing site to make use of it.

Which would be the most SEO friendly way of pointing the domain to my existing site?

  • DNS alias onto the main website
  • Host on my existing server as a seperate website with a 100% frameset to display the existing site
  • Host on my existing server with a static page and just a single link to my main site
  • Host on my existing server with a meta refresh to the main site.
  • Host on a 3rd party server with frameset as above
  • Host on a 3rd party server with single link as above
  • Host on a 3rd party server with meta refresh to the main site.

...or do you have a better idea?

Thanks :)

Dont seems white seo to me, BTW host on a 3rd party server with single link is the better IMHO.

Probably best. To make it look aboveboard, make it a simple info site about whatever widgets you sell. Think of it more to catch surfers going to that domain for traffic than SEO reasons.

Develop a new site, that is different than your current site, that is relevant to those incoming links.

That way you have two sites in case one gets dinged in an update.

slap some new content on it. Redirecting might kill the site for a while as G sees all these new links all of the sudden.

301 to main site. Or develop new unique related content.
