I copied this post made by “Tehfinche” on Digital Point. Digital Point is one of the many forums I frequently go to and exchange ideas and information with other SEO San Jose. While I found this article interesting and wanted to share as an intellectual brain teaser, I question the use of this method. I found this article to stimulate exploration of methods used in my daily SEO San Jose. At the very least it reminds me that exploration of methods used in search engine optimization company should be a never ending journey.
Hope you enjoy the following re-post.
“I read this a long time ago on an old Black Hat blog. I can’t remember which, but it works!
Simple process, incredibly effective.
To pull it off, you’ll need to have an old indexed domain sitting in your toolbox.
Let’s say that domain is MyEstablishedSite.com
Your new sandboxed site is MyNewSite.com
- Take all the files from MyNewSite and upload them to a subfolder on your established site.
- Create a subdomain for the replica site: MyNewSite.MyEstablishedSite.com
- Link to your new replica from the main page of MyEstablishedSite.com
- Ping Google to ensure that it knows to come and re-spider.
- Let Google index the replica site.
- 301 redirect your replica site to the real MyNewSite.com
And just like that, Google SEO assumes that your site has been moved. You hop on the established authority of your old site and fast track your way out of the sandbox in a matter of days.
Don’t believe me? Try it! Unless something drastic has changed (I haven’t needed to use the method for a few months), it should still be working.”
