    So I've done some reading about 301-redirects and I am understanding that the re-direct is still effective for passing links juice. I have 5 or 6 domains lying around that are between pr2-pr5 that I want to try to utilize the most effective way for a new site. I was originally planning on writing a contextual article and posting it in the homepage of the site with 1-2 links to my money site. Trying to find out if that would be the best way to do it or would a 301-redirect be more effective (not sure if this could potentially harm/penalize my site as well).

    Also, I have a question regarding duplicate content. I have different products that I will be listing on the site and have been thinking about posting the details regarding the product (this would be copied & pasted from amazon most likely). Would this potentially put my at risk for duplicate content penalty? Is there a way around this? I've done some research and have found that the syndicate-source tag is no longer in use & the no index tag is not a viable for me.

    Any suggestions/advice are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    If the sites are of related content there would be nothing but positives for the most part to 301 if those domains aren't penalized.

    I avoid copying and pasting at all costs, with the exception of quotes or small exerpts, and I provide a reference link if I do this. I've never had a duplicate content issue, so I don't know how "unique" it would need to be. Obviously copying and pasting would save you time, but I don't know to what point it would be detrimental and instead be a waste of time.

    The sites aren't penalized at all, however, one of them are of related content at all.

    I wouldn't 301 non-relevant content in hopes of funneling its juice, unless it's going to be left to die, anyways.

    Unless you want to start out fresh and don't care about domain authority, 301 the relevant sites to the site with the highest domain authority. Otherwise just pick a new "brand" based domain name and 301 the relevant domains to that and start over.

    Ameristyles,

    Keep in mind that there is no such thing as a "duplicate content penalty". Search engines don't manually or algorithmically penalize sites that have the same content as others. The problem with duplicate content is that the search engine has no idea which piece of content is more relevant when it comes across something that is already stored in its index.

    Best,

    Shawn

    So you mean the Panda updates never existed?

    Don't worry about whether or not they're related in content. You can 301 redirect them to your money site, and slowly build backlinks to each 301 in unison with backlinking your main site.

    Thank you Shawn that is very good to know.

    Anyone have opinions regarding my 5 or 6 sites with PR, whether it would be better to make a contextual post with a link to main site or if it is better to just re-direct it?

    I only tried relevant content and reaped results. Glad to hear it probably doesn't need to be the same content.
