Buffer Sites

What is a buffer site?

I just recently heard of the term buffer site, and to my understanding this would be a site that sends traffic to a money making site. In the example I was reading about the buffer site had incoming links from blogs that each targeted a specific keyword. These blogs had incoming links from article directories.

What I did not understand was why have a buffer site? Why not just link the blogs, and maby even the articles directly to the money making site? These questions have been lingering around in my mind for a while now and here is the conclusion I have come up with. If you have any idea what buffer sites are all about please let me know, as
I am uncertain, and curious.

O.K. here is my theory right or wrong. I think the whole idea of the buffer site is for it to
be a high page ranking site, or one with alot of traffic. Because the buffer site has blogs
linking to it this should increase its page rank. You would not have just one buffer site, you
would have several that all point to the money site.

What do you think?

    I think what you're referring to is what I call "satellite sites".

    So, you have your money site. Then you have 4-5 self hosted blogs on different IP's that all link to the money site.

    Then you link to those blogs from other sites, digg, squidoo, ezine, whatever.

    Those blogs, or I guess they could be static, then rank fairly strongly for certain keywords.

    You then link to the money site from each satellite site, and Google sees several related authority sites pointing links your way, and therefore assigns your main site a higher trust and rankings.

    That's how I understand it.

    • That makes sense. When I searched for buffer sites on google I came up with nothing. Warrior rock! Thanks.

      It seems like a great idea, especially for a site selling resale rights products since ezine articles does not allow you to link to a site that has anything to do with RR or PLR ect...

      This does sound like alot of work though, and then having to have websites with different ip's - that is alot of cash for hosting.

      1. So is it better to use self hosted blogs or linkwheels made up of web 2.0 properties like weebly, squidoo, hubpage etc?

      2.will give you better rankings? Blog farms or web 2.0 linkwheels?

      3.Is it best to use SEO hosting, ip rental, or strongvpn to build your blogs on different IP's?

      4.Is is ok to use automatic content posting software for these blogfarms, or does everything have to be unique content on every blog?

      5. What happens if you do drive traffic straight to the main money site without building a buffer zone or satellite sites?

      6. what happens if you build a web 2.0 property or blog as your buffer site and then the buffer site gets taken down. Then are all of the links I built to the buffer site just dead ends that go nowhere because the buffer site is no longer there?? or what if anything can I do to replace the buffer site or redirect and re-harness the traffic that was going to the buffer site that was taken down so i can repoint them at my main money site? or are those links just dead end links for good?

    One good reason to make buffer sites on high PR web 2.0 properties is that you can pound them with a lot more links quickly then you could your money site. Squidoo isn't going to get penalized for building a lot of links quickly because it is already viewed by Google as an authority site and has been around for awhile. Google wouldn't look the same way on a brand new affiliate site.
