    I have a very specific question about a 301 redirect, I would like a bit information please before I being testing this.

    If I have a site on page 1 of Google for say "atlanta pool cleaning" can I 301 redirect my "atlanta pool cleaning" site to a client's site and keep the page 1 ranking for that keyword term? Or will the 301 change my ranking?

    The reason I ask is if this will work with no change in keyword ranking I can then just redirect my client's site and save rebuilding the site to look like his.

    My Understanding is that the Pagerank/link juice etc will get passed - not the ranking in G**gle.

    You may well rank no.1, but it will still depend on other factors (such as on-page stuff like url, title, keywords in content etc)

    Maybe you could test it with a 302 and change it back if the client site doesn't rank well?
