Using parked domain page to get 50k+ of low quality links, good idea?

I'm managing the seo for a hosting company. We have a lot of parked domains with a parked domain page. This will now be updated to promote our products.
When this page is updated it will give 50k+ of low quality links to specific pages almost overnight.
We curently don't have a very good seo ranking for our keywords, so there is little risk on the downside in the short term.
Do you have any suggestions as to how I should go about this?
Some alternatives off the top of my head:
1. get the page up an focus all the link equity on relevant pages with keywords in anchor text
2. add noindex / nofollowto all pages or only part of them to avoid puishment
3. add noindex / to the majority of the pages and "release" a percentage every week or so to avoid a "link bomb"
Thanks for any and all input!

Thanks for the replies! I'll go ahead and let the links pass power with a proper disclosure on the page. If it all goes south I'll post an update here.

Under ordinary circumstances I would just go ahead and do it, however lately I am seeing an increased activity of Google taking action against link manipulation. I would put proper disclosure on the landing page explaining why users are seeing it and if you do get in trouble it's a very simple explanation to Google.
If you, however, trigger an algorithmic filter then the solution is to nofollow all the links and wait for Google to pick it up.
If you don't want any dramas to start with use nofollow straight away.

Most of these parked domains probably have zero inbound links from other websites that can be found in Google's index. If that is true then the links from these parked domains will pass zero power to your primary domain.
Is there any risk? One way of looking at this is your "intent". If Google thinks that the links that you place on these domains were placed to manipulate rankings then you could be whacked for it. Using keyword optimized anchor text could be a signal that you are doing this for manipulation.
If I controlled these domains and had a long-term stake in my primary website I would probably "nofollow" the links and try to get my links from another method.

Hi, I've recently changed domains and have redirected all traffic from the old site to the new one. The problem is that none of my built links for the old domain are showing up for the new domain (I use moz.com/researchtools/ose/) I've read a few articles saying it's best practice to get in touch with the people that are linking to your old website to let them know the address has changed. When I search for my old domain using moz.com/researchtools/ose/ it says there is 0 established links. I know this isn't the case as I've visited one of the sites that does still list this domain. Is there a way of getting a list of my old domain's backlinks so I can contact them? I didn't make a list before redirecting. Thank you.Link Building | | charliedavi0
I am looking for some help/advice/tips/suggestions on what you would do to improve this page in terms of getting customers to stay on the site or actually go a level down and place an order... The page is : http://goo.gl/MIajx I seem to be getting a decent amount of traffic, but it is not turning into orders... Any help would be greatly appreciated.Link Building | | Prime850
When looking at a competitor's links, is it worth the time to try to get listed on sites they're listed on if all they seem to be are pages with links? Here's an example: http://blacktieaffairlimousines.com/links.html I'm finding a lot of these, along with other low quality links from sites in other countries such as China, that have nothing to do with their business. This is for a self storage company. Most of what I'm finding are what seem to be more "old school" link building (farming).Link Building | | DougHoltOnline0
For back linking, what is more important for increasing rank for organic searches on Google? I've noticed that linking on sites with high domain authority that have some or no relevance boost my keyword ranking. However, does back linking on relevant sites help if their domain authority is not so high?Link Building | | Modbargains0
I am thinking of creating link baits such as infographic for my site. Problem is, link baits only serve to bait links towards those link baiting pages isn't it? It doesn't actually help in improving the SERP of my money pages within the site (which have content that doesn't bait links). Yes I do know however, it will help in the site authority which might ultimately improve the SERP of my money pages, but it is all too ineffective and far fetched is it?Link Building | | yunie_0
Do you think it's a good idea to try to find synergy between clients for blog posts/citations/links, or should you keep clients away from each other?
Say you have for example three (in this case) clients, and: Client A sells red widgets Client B is a doctor Client C sellls blue widgets With some research, you find that: Red widgets (A) can make the process of blue widget creation (C) even more effective. Red widgets (A) can protect you from harmful things that doctors (B) are qualified to recommend that you stay away from. Furthermore, there are things that doctors (B) recommend that you do in order to maximize the benefits of red widgets (A) Blue widgets (C) carry with them certain potential health risks, which according to doctors (B) can be minimized using the following means Sometimes blue widgets (C) can be used to effectively repair red widget (A) factories ...and so forth. Sure you're really writing these articles to generate links and exchange authority, and frankly you started with "how can I find synergy between these clients?" rather than a with a great article subject that needed a citation which luckily happened to be another client, but the citations are legitimate and the clients are qualified to speak on the subjects where their expertise and interests overlap. Would you consider going ahead with this? Does anyone have any experience doing it? I could see potential pitfalls if clients were to interact with each other, but keeping yourself as the intermediary might well work and overall it seems like a decent way to grab low-hanging fruit as they say. What do you guys think?Link Building | | PathMarketing0
