    I started testing Bobbylove rankings method and bought aged domain, indexed it with new content and then redirected to my new money site. Now I see that the aged domain is deindexed. Also I remember that my business partner and I redirected some domains about 2 years ago, did a search and these were also deindexed.

    Anybody with more experience can definitely give me an answer - is it normal and when the old domain is deindexed, is it useful to keep the 301, does it have any negative effect?

    Thank You in advance!

    Yes, it's normal. You're telling Google that your old site has moved to the new site so there is no point in having the old site in index. Usually new site takes over those rankings.

    I actually just did a big 301 redirect, and I'm waiting for it to be deindexed, so that's when I know the link juice has been passed.
    I'm currently #7 for a 190k keyword, and also have the #10 spot. I'm forwarding #10 spot to the #7 site.

    Never have done a 301 re-direct myself. So can you remove your 301 and your site once it is de-indexed and the link juice is passed?

    thanks,

    Thanks for the valuable reply! I thought I had to buy another aged domain ;) Learning every day.

    You have experience with 301 redirecting, is it really helpful to buy a aged domain and redirect it to a brand new site so the age passes on and you can start building links quickly and larger quantities.

    I'm not sure if the age passes, I do mine a different way.
    Bobbylove's method is horseshit, imo.

    I am just starting out with "professional seo" aka trying to find a method of ranking sites in order to build a strong IM business. I searched for ranking threads and found it, just wanted to test it out, even if it turns out to be bs, I learnt something new and move on.

    You havent used high pr linking to rank sites?

    I'm actually in the process of dropping a branded domain and redirecting to a new "clean" one. I've done it in the past, but never with a site this big.

    @jon_xx_x, care to elaborate on things to take in consideration, so I retain the most link juice possible?

    Cheers
