Hi all - my company is acquisitions based, meaning we buy up companies and bring them into our branding. Right now we have 10+ acquisitions being completed, and I am being asked to redirect them all to our main .com.

My concern here is that, while the redirects will be 1:1 and completed properly, it may look like we are conducting a bit of blackhat link-buying activity if we are redirecting multiple domains in a short space of time. I don't want Google thinking we are buying up domains just for their backlinks.

Does anyone have any previous experience in this, or can point me in the direction of some similar research/advice/case studies?

Many thanks in advance!
