Expired Domain > 301 > moneysite?

Anyone still using this technique in 2018?

simply redirecting expired domains to your money site? Just curious cause I thought google had clamped down on it… but seems to be a common tactic people are using on sites for sale on flipping marketplaces/flippa etc..

Thinking of a giving it a test. Say I have expired domain on "home/ kitchen" niche broadly, would it be a bad idea to use that to target a niche like toasters, blenders etc?
Like how relevant are the domains people use for this?…
