    If I have Website A that ranks #3 for a keyword and I redirect it to website B. What is going to happen?

    Lets say website B is ranking at #20 when I do the redirect. Will it go up to #3 and then higher because it has its own link juice?

    What if website B was ranking at #200. Will it still be switched up to #3 or higher. Or will it meet somewhere in the middle?

    Technically, if you do it properly all the link juice should pass with the 301 redirect. Having said that, keep in mind that not ALL is about links so most likely your site B will not have the exact same ranking as A. It can be better, it can be worse...
