    I have 2 sites on page 1 for a certain niche. One is #3 one is #8. If I 301 #8 to the other site do you think that the site will bump up?

    I guess I am trying to figure out if it would be better to have both pages on page 1 or hopefully bump the one currently at #3 to #1.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    +1 on the question. I am curious about this too. Has anyone tested a similar method after the Penguin?

    Thought I'd bump this thread in case anyone has any ideas.

    Thanks

    I had an emd sat in position two forever. Penguin comes it hits position 7. I then say f it and 301 emd to aged domain that was NOT tracking for KW and now aged domain is in position 1.

    You take 8 and 301 to position 3 site you should hit position 1. IMO of course others factors could be at play here. For example if your trying to rank for dog snuggies and the first position is seomoz, good luck with that. Now if your just trying to tackle a wiki page you should be able to take em.

    On a side note. If you decide to 301 your position 8 into position 3 you will not instantly lose position 8. It takes a few days for that snakey bastard to drop of into no where land. So you could always test the waters, as they say.

    On an even more side note, there is nothing more white hat then buying links off fiverr that are in the same niche as you. Not saying buy 30 or so, but maybe just one if you havent been spamming the world to badly. Blogroll links can be natural if the OBLs on said sellers page are not pointing to you, me, baby jesus and all the rest of the BHW community. Send an email or 3 and find out sellers OBL, niche, hell most of the time they will just tell you the webpage address.

    Personally I would love to take first, and keep a second site on the first page.

    Just do it. It's most likely to happen. #3 --#1.

    You should try. It could bump to 1, it could stay on 3.
    Only one 301 - is not much.

    I'd rather own two spots in the top 10. Cross-link the two sites together and they should both get an upward boost.

    ones about 3 years old the other is about 2.

    Thanks for the help will let you know how it goes (have done some really dodge backlinks on the #8 site so want to wait and make sure it doesn't get penalised before setting up the 301). Would keep both pages on page 1 but not possible for certain reasons.

    Thanks for your help.

    301 to you domain. Everything should be fine as long as that MNS doesn't have toxic Backlinks.
