Assume the following:

  • I have a website: www.example.com.

  • I want to rank www.example.com/searc-term-1 on the first page of Google.

Would it help the SEO of www.example.com/searc-term-1 if I bought the domain name www.searc-term-1.com or www.search-term-1.net and had them 301 redirect to www.example.com/searc-term-1?

OR instead

Would it help the SEO of www.example.com/searc-term-1 if I bought the domain name www.searc-term-1.com or www.search-term-1.net and had content on them relevant to search-term-1 and placed a do-follow link to www.example.com/searc-term-1?

Is the a blackhat practice?

    Major league blackhat. It will not work. There are no shortcuts and search engines will ping the snot out of you possibly forever for trying. – closetnoc Mar 4 '16 at 4:35

If I was forced to pick one of your options, I'd choose the first, because then you're directing the users to one place, but personally, I'd save my money and not buy another domain.

Instead, use your existing URL:

www.example.com/searc-term-1

then in your HTML code for the above URL, talk about searc-term-1 and include it in your HTML title tag meta-description tag and header tag, but don't overdo it or your page will look too spammy. Run your page through various SEO tools on the net to make sure it is done right.
