    I have a client that was using an SEO company before me that used a lot of ALN and paid blog posts, when those went belly up he got blown out of the serps. He has a couple keywords around the 80's position but most are out of the top 500. His competition is medium, not super easy but not super hard. I'm wondering if I should do a 301 of his old domain because it's a couple years old and has a lot of juice coming in. Or if I should just start over with a new domain. I haven't done much 301 re-directing and hear some people say that it transfers penalties and some say it doesn't. Anyone try this and how did it work for you?

    if it has juice, Definitely 301. From experience, it does not transfer penalties.
