    I have a popular blog which had it's most popular blog post slapped with the October update. I want to 301 redirect only that page to a whole other domain. Do you think the domain will regain it's position? Are there any risks for the rest of the blog with such action?

    If you 301 the old URL every bad link will be also redirected. Your new URL will probably do good for a while, but Google will end up hiting it again. I don't think this will help the rest of your blog on the new domain since you will be lifting flags due to the negative impact of the old links.

    My question was if I redirect ONLY that blog post to a new domain will it pass the link juice of the blog post only? I'm aware about the risks involving passing the links to the new domain, no need for those warnings. I want to know will the redirection of a blog post only to a whole new domain be able to rank the new domain?

    I simply asked about any risks involved with the rest of the old blog posts which will remain intact.

    if you redirect 1 post you are redirecting all the juice from that specific post to another domain. So, new domain will/should receive link profile/partial juice from your old page.

    Will it rank based on that only? Who knows =|

    After you finish up 301ing, wait out a couple of days and send a couple of Sape or pbn links to your old redirected page and small contextual GSA blast to backlinks pointing to your old page. This should fasten up the whole process and send some extra juice to your new domain.

    In the meantime, send 10-20 pbn posts to your fresh domain with brand/url anchors and you're set

    I would recommend moving the whole site to a new domain and redirecting each url to their matching urls on the new domain if only that blog post was penalised and not the entire domain. If you redirect only the url of the post to a new domain, it should pass the link juice and rank the domain in a position close to where the post previously ranked based on how 301s work.

    I've never tried a "single url to new domain" redirect before so can't say for certain whether it will pass the link juice or not.

    Thanks all of you guys, you really gave me some ideas. I think I'm going to try redirecting only that post to my whole domain and see what happens. After all I don't have much to lose anyway so why not play around and see what works.

    Then if it doesn't work or if anything goes bad I can try pointing some SAPE links as suggested above. I may report back here if it works as intended. Cheers!

    Redirect the index to home page and inner pages to inner pages of the new site. This is the best way if you're moving your old site to new one. Usually penalties don't pass to new sites (atleast not quickly)

    Hi Spiritfly!

    Great question, this has been asked many times and there are plenty of great case studies pertaining to the current and previous algorithm versions and how 301's behaved in each one.

    In a nutshell, 301's:

    1. Pass about 70-90% of their PR and rankings to their new domain
    2. Since they pass on rankings, you should strive to ensure that the new domain is optimized perfectly for each URL for it's target keywords.
    3. Penalties can also be passed on however they make takes weeks, months or even longer for the penalty to finally be passed onto the new domain.
    4. Double 301's are also possible but they are a bit more tricky to set-up but they help to create a buffer to prevent any possible penalties from being passed onto the new domain.

    Hope this helps!

    Wow this is good info summed up right here! I mostly knew this stuff, but you summed it up all so well, thanks!

    I have done 301's only a few times before and they worked every time. But every time I did it it was redirecting the whole domain to another new domain OR redirecting whole domain(EMD ranking for specific keyword) to a post on another domain. Each time I did it the same content was used.

    But I have never did it with only a post(which was ranking high for it's keyword) redirecting to a whole domain (EMD optimized for the same keyword that the post was originally ranking for). So this scenario was a bit tricky for me. I did a lot of researching, but never found this case discussed hence why I asked.

    In the meantime while I was just about to make the redirect I did a last check and it seems like the post in question has returned to it's previous position. So unfortunately I don't be trying this, at least not now. I so wanted to experiment with it a little, but I will do that in another opportunity probably.

    Thanks for all your help guys, really appreciate it!
