How would clients respond to this (redirect back linking)

I read a few times that certain SEO's build links to a domain that's 301 redirected to the client, often cause they work on pay for performance so it's an extra protection in place.

What would clients think of this?

I was thinking to do it like this in the future:

- 20 links from my primary private network, all unique IP's and different types of CMS and styles of sites, in other words each link would be unique instead of the standard blog post, this network would be relatively small, say 80 sites, and people would get 20 unique links from that.

Cause it's small it would allow me to put more effort into making the sites look real, additional content with no links, perhaps even aiming to rank them and more, just to build a solid site.

The rest of the sites would then be more basic, standard WP with unique theme and obvious also unique IP's but the links would then be pointed at another domain that I redirect to the client.

In case something go's wrong I can easily disconnect the reconnect.

You think this would lead to complains from noobish clients or is there no need to mention it?

    If you are in control of it, then you could try it on your site but not on a clients site Then monitor any changes. Let us know how you get on.

    If your selling a monthly service & not selling links it's none of the clients business If you buffer links with your own domains. It's like paying for cable TV, no pay, no play.

    Just make sure the client knows upfront what they're buying, links or service.

    I don't think you'd face any problems from clients, even the more experienced ones as long as you break down how and why you're doing it and of course establish yourself as the expert.

    As for the redirect in general, I wouldn't bother. You saw it yourself in Googles new patent that 20 independent links would be much better than one powerful one if you're trying to future proof. And since you own the network you could always t week anchors or remove links if shit hits the fan.

      I don't think Google treats a redirect as one single link.

      If that was the case then there should be a huge difference between new rankings and rankings of the previous site (in case of a move to a new domain, what the 301 is originally meant for).

      The patent was from 2011 or 2012 btw

      I did a little case study on redirecting irrelevant domains btw, however today I found that it's totally flawed cause out of nowhere it showed up as a no permission 403 error. Have to try again!
