    Okay, so I have multiple sites which are based on the same topic, and I really do not wanna have to create unique content for these 14 sites.


    My question is if I do a 301 redirect to site A, would google consider the on-page for site B(where the redirect is pointing to) for site A, and will it rank the same with backlinking?


    If anyone has a suggestion let me know, thanks in advanced!

    Google Will not consider the on page for site B, but it will apply page rank and backlinks that site B has.

    Okay, so essentially site B will not rank for SERP at all, the only use of 301 is transfer of backlinks and traffic?

    301 redirection means you redirect previous content/ website to a new place/ website. you have to use htaccess ort redirect directly in index.php file and how to do it properly there is a tons of info on the web. what it is you can get a fresh domain create one keyword rich page on it, put a lot of backlinks towards it and when it reaches 30 or 20 position ( roughly) you redirect this domain to your money website/ domain which will take positions of the redirected one...

    I hope you are joking....if your website gets deindexed DO NOT use 301 redirect, because this is a severe penalty and it will pass to your redirected website. If ur website gets hit by G and you lose ur rankings then u can use 301.

    Redirecting site B to site A will pass 99% of link juice of site B to site A. Ranking of Site B remains same for certain period, but it will drop ranking soon. Because no search engine BOT can crawl site B.
    Redirecting is a good trick for making a site index good in search engines. But if your redirecting site(site B for example) has penalty it may pass penalty to your destination site(site A), so handle with caution. Also in my experience redirecting many websites to a particular site is not an good option google tracking redirected domains. If you have multiple sites to redirect use it on inner pages as well.

    Wrong. The penalty does not get transferred to the new domain. Tried and tested and proven multiple times.

    I've even 301'd a site for 4-5 weeks that had a penalty to another domain that was unrelated and then removed the 301 and the penalty seems to have gone as the rankings are starting to rise back up. This site was Sape'd by a BHW provider and got a huge penalty that got it deindexed (but everyone still loves Sape, right?). I redirected to another domain in a different niche, removed the domain and it's now getting back into the top 100. Before Sape it was in the top ten for a few keywords but I struggled to get it any further (very very difficult niche), hence why I tried Sape and regretted it instantly.

    Now that same site is climbing steadily but I don't spend a lot of time on it.
