About 3 months ago I found a domain that was unregistered but showed over 9,000 backlinks in Yahoo and MSN. The domain was qtw24.com. I noticed that 90% of the links were no follow comment spam but I thought it was a oppourtunity to test a few things that I could not pass up.
I registered the domain and 301 redirected it to forums.shoemoney.com. I pretty much forgot about it until a friend told me that he saw it was ranking really well for some poker terms. I started going through the logs and looking for search terms.
Low and behold. These rankings are at the time of post. I do not expect them to last.
The domain forums.shoemoney.com is a pr6 (on first update)
The domain forums.shoemoney.com ranks #3 for texas holdem on MSN
And many other terms. You get the point.
As you can see my forums contain absolutly no onpage text containing any of these keywords.
A interesting thing is that Google gives this site no love (keyword wise)
