Getting US Domains for German Backlinks

0 votes

I wonder what you think about the following approach:

I would like to strengthen my German websites by buying PageRank domains, mainly 4, 5, and 6. As it is either very expensive or almost impossible to get these domains with German content and a .de TLD due to the much smaller market size I see no other way than to acquire .com, .net etc. domains.

After purchase I am recreating the websites associated with these domains using their previous content available via the Wayback Machine. Letting some time pass I am planning to move these websites from their US host to a hoster based in Germany, and eventually also switching the domains to a German registrar.

After more time has passed I am adding German language content to these websites while leaving the English content untouched as presumably the links responsible for the PageRank will point to this content. At a later date I will then put in links into the German pages to my German money sites.

Do you regard this as a wise approach? Or do you see problems in one or several of the steps, in other words:

1) Moving the website from an US to a German hoster.

2) Switching the domain from an US to a German registrar.

3) Adding German content to a website which previously had been in English only.

I would be grateful to get your opinion on this.

Many thanks in advance,

I'm not an expert, but it looks like too much effort - and, in the end, you won't be sure if Google is considering positively those backlinks.

If you want to try it, so buy one US domain and try it, before to buy several ones.

Why don't you look for websites with German content in others TLD? So you wouldn't have a website with English and German content, it'd be smoother.
