Question is - can anyone advise how to avoid this?
I already buy available sites in my niche, which guarantees they won't get a link. The only way i can think of is pointing all new links to a site under my control that in turn links to the main domain.
Question 2. How much does this method dilute the power of the link?
I should add that by power, i don't mean PR, but trust.
The other webmasters imagination seems to runs out after buying links on foreign newspaper sites. i don't think they should be rewarded for my hard work, and improvisation.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
Don't have those means? Then I'd keep doing what you're doing but just try to find a sneakier way to do it.
Ever thought of trying to get those other site's links removed from your newly found sources?
Talk to the owners, brown nose a little, and keep doing as much as you can.
Also, you're first idea isn't too bad, but might be costly. To make it worth anything, you'd need to get a separate IP at a different hosting service. More dollars... not to mention more projects to deal with since your new site will need updated content on a regular basis... otherwise it'll look like any other dummy domain. Furthermore, I'd question the fact that this process might delute that trust factor that you're after, since it's being redirected through yet another site.

If new links are pointing to something other than your home page, it would be a bit harder for competitors to spot them, and you'd still have the benefit of PR, trust and other goodies.
goubarev. On reflection i think you are right. If i point lot's of links to a domain that in turn links to me, then i suppose i only gain one link.
MrStitch. I didn't mean buying new domains and developing them. Buying existing mature sites has been very succesful in the past, problem is finding them.
You could also make it more difficult for others to follow you by informing the webmaster of the highest price you would have paid for the link, so that anyone buying links after you may have to pay more than you did.
