Parked Domains

I have 2 domains that I have purchased over the years and never used them. I thought of using them and putting up some content and putting links back to my main website for sale conversions. Is this illegal?

Why would it be illegal?

How would it be illegal? Your property do what you want to do. As long as you are not going to spam or do some malware stuff.

This is fine. I would only do it after placing a large amount of quality on topic content on both sites. Lately word proximity is gaining importance. It goes without saying to choose your anchor text carefully (NOT 'click here').

so it is totally fine even if a large chunk of the content is to lead to my main website?
Well not a large chunk but mainly the main page contents.
I was just scared it is too close to something like cloaking etc or doorway pages. However there is no deceive or trickery. Anyway i am not that smart or technical to do any of that or any malware.

So say the main page has about 10 links to external sites and 4 out of them are to my main website and main content is to my main website. Is that fine?

Also I will have about 5 pages for the whole site.
