    Hi!
    I changed the domain name on the site. I did a 301 redirect from the old to the new domain. The site had very high positions - #2 for most kw. Now, after a redirect, all positions are greatly reduced.
    Advise what to do to restore the position? To start promoting a new domain from scratch again? Is there any advantage to the new domain to redirect from the old? If I do not buy links - the position be restored?
    Need advice. Thank you.

    There is no simple advice for what you are asking. If you did 301 right then it can just take a bit time to rank new domain again. You might rank just with your 301 redirect but I think you should start to build more backlinks anyway.

    start again from scratch :shot:
    I thought that the position will remain. PR from the old domain was lost, and the new domain does not appear. Since I made the redirect was 6 days.

    Wait a week or two and Google will sort it out again.

    Try building links (good ones) to the new domain. It will be useful. Wait for a week to see results.

    Just wait. Last time I did this it took me about 2 weeks to get rankings again, and I slipped a few spots. Build links at the same rate you were before to the new domain.

    Since you HAD to do the 301, you will just need to wait.

    Google takes time for 301's to pass it's value, and even then it will reduce the linkjuice passed along from a redirected website. My recommendation would be to continue to build links to the new website AND the old one.

    Since the old one was ranking well it likely has great link value. By adding more links to it you'll increase the pagerank/linkjuice of the old domain and the new links will prove that your new site is worthwhile.

    At the end of the day, 301'ng domains should be a last resort.

    There is some news
    I slowly started to post links to the new domain. First, the new domain up in positions ... and then completely disappeared from the TOP100. I think that the new domain got in the Google sandbox. Missing in all the keywords. I thought that the redirect will help, but it turns out that Google is considering as new site. At the same time the old domain is present in the TOP100.
    Where am I wrong?
