Buying aged domains and redirecting to your site
Ok, so I guess it is a fact that google ranks pages on age of domain. And, many of us are registering new domains, so, all other metrics being equal, it can be very difficult to get past those older sites on the SERP's.
Has anybody heard of buying used (not dropped) aged domains at auction like godaddy auction and then doing a 301 re-direct of that domain to your money site. Apparently the PR, age, and backlinks from that domain will get passed on to your money site."Authority of a site, according to the Google algorithm is determined by two main
factors: The number and quality of links pointing to it and the age of the site, in
terms of the period of time that the site has contained index able content seen by
the search engines. Webmasters have no control over this factor. The only way to
affect this is by buying old websites."

Has anyone tried this strategy before? I guess you can re-direct more than one domain if you like.
Thanks in advance,
