OK guys and girls,

I need some help,I have been in SEO now for seven years,working full time and getting some great results in very competitive markets. Though now I have a problem that every SEO'er would love to have, i have a single word domain which is 15 years old with natural backlinks form hundreds of univeristies and US state government sites, priceless links.

Now I have access to 18 2 letter domains, which like the other are 15-20 years old, from the days before google. One of the domains has over 9 million natural links, from the likes of statcounter and w3. Now what do i do as far as linking is concerned, I want to push all the juice possible to the finance site which will make the bucks but heres the situation:
the first site was with the others on the same IP until a few weeks ago
the first site was moved, redesigned but still holds its rank
the 2 letter domains are very old, have no external links and are all on the same IP
the first site has the potential to be top of google for the biggest search terms in the world (it is currently page 2 with no links or work)

How do I get the best from the first domain?
Would linking from the 2 letter domains be too unnatural?
Or would the fact that they are owned by the same company mean we could legitimately link them?

I do have my own take on this, though I am sure there are not many people out there who have had a similar issue, which is why i want some help from those who have.

If you want links from those 2-letter domains to help, I think you first need to wake them up from the coma that you say they're in. Basically, it sounds to me like you need to look elsewhere to get better ranking for your money domain.
