This domain isn't anything I'd want to write home about, but it was cheap, has some links and was relevant to existing material I have. The niche has been significantly impacted by the recession, so there are continual drops similar to this, the "prime" ones get cherry picked and parked. I don't care about PR or significant traffic flow, I'm looking more at theme.
Typical profile is some general directory links, a slightly greater number of niche directory links and a good number of themed reciprocal links. All the links I've seen go to the main page, many linking sites aren't maintaining so the recips have been holding.
The general consensus seems to be build out some content, allow any juice remnants to start flowing and maybe put a couple in-content links to my preferred target. Sort of like parking on steroids.
I imagine this could be done more than once since each purchased domain would link to a different target page on my preferred site. At what point does it start looking like a link scheme? Or is this
where a person defines the limits of their own FUD?
