    Hi all

    Has anyone had any luck 301redirecting to a new domain to escape a manual link penalty?

    I have domain under a penalty since august 2012. I have removed tons of links and disavowed tons more and put numerous reconsideration request in but all have been refused.
    I?m now at the point of considering 301ing to a new domain so just wandering if anyone has managed to do this and shake the penalty (unnatural link penalty in particular)

    cheers

    Don't waste your time. This might work before 2012, after last year updates that has proven useless in my point of view.

    Have you had success with an unnatural link penalty?

    For a sustained period?

    You are better off starting a new site from scratch and learn from mistakes the last time.

    301 redirect is very likely to pass on the penalty..usually after 1 or 2 weeks. I have tested and penalty does get passed on. Maybe duran got lucky or his old site was just sandboxed and not penalized but i personally would start fresh.

    thanks, was this recovery from an unnatural link penalty where you received a warning in wmt?

    I have had success with 301's like this in the past but I'm trying to be very specific ie. "unnatural link panealty"

    I am inclined to agree as I have had similar results in the past with 301?s, think I?m just clutching at straws. But it?s hard to let go of an aged site, think ill keep slugging away with reconsideration requests and work on a new site also
