    Hey guys,

    got a couple of EMD's ranking #1 monetised by adsense.

    for example lets call them widgetReview.com and mattcuntsreview.com

    and for example lets say i have just created review.com (i wish...) to target a ton of long tails and create a authority site.


    im thinking about copying the entire content of each site into sub sections on review.com and then 301'ing the domains to the respective pages that have the same content on review.com

    both of the mini sites at the moment rank #1 - for about 1500-3000 exact

    if i 301 them how much of the juice can i hope to pass through? can i expect to keep the #1 spot?

    Cheers

    I'm not 100% sure (people are really blowing away my preconceived notions of a 301 redirect these days) but I would first add some contextual backlinks from your EMDs to your authority site and see how that effects rankings. If you don't like the result you can always 301 afterwards.

    I did think about that but they are hosted on the same ip.

    Mmm, I see. Any chance you can get your authority on a unique IP? It's not that I don't think the 301 redirect would work, I just think creating authority links on those sites would allow you to keep your EMDs as potential assets on their respective keywords.

    Either way be sure to let us know what you do/how it works, I'm curious myself.

    A 301 will pass 90% of the link juice IIRC.

    Thanks for the info - How about duplicate content penalties? because im copying the pages over to the new "review" site?
