    I purchased a PR2 domain from Godaddy Auctions in the same niche as my money site. My money site is currently a PR2 as well.

    Would there be any benefits of doing a 301 redirect from the one I just bought to my money site? or should I build this domain separately and have two money sites?

    If it's related, it'll really boost your first money site (the established one)..

    If niches are different (even a little bit), I'd prefer to work on it and make another money site..

    Good luck man!

    301 will definitely help. Go for it buddy...

    EDIT: If you want to create a separate money site, you can. Try experimenting it and if it doesn't rank well then just 301 it after a few weeks. That's the best way to do it.

    Having thousands of PR domains, we tested this pretty extensively.

    Unless the keywords match up, redirecting it is a total waste of a good domain. We redirected 10-20 PR domains to a single domain with around 6 or 8 different tests to see if it helped ranking and it didn't.

    It only makes sense if the old keywords or old traffic match your new site. It won't help for ranking or traffic otherwise.
