    Hello,

    I have 2 websites one is 2 years old with many links health related and other is new one 5 months old both are almost in same niche.

    So what will happen if I do 301 redirect this 2 years old website to my new 5 month old website ? Will link juice will transfer to my new site ?

    Thanks.

    Link juice will be passed to new site although search engine says it passes but they don't guarantee it... So you may get all value or you may loose some... Apart from that if old site is ranking for "xyz" and new site targeting for "abc" then don't expect to rank on "abc", you may rank on your old keyword again with new site.

    Please read it from Google.

    If you need to change the URL of a page as it is shown in search engine results, we recommended that you use a server-side 301 redirect. This is the best way to ensure that users and search engines are directed to the correct page. The 301 status code means that a page has permanently moved to a new location.

    301 redirects are particularly useful in the following circumstances:

    You've moved your site to a new domain, and you want to make the transition as seamless as possible.
    People access your site through several different URLs. If, for example, your home page can be reached in multiple ways - for instance, http://example.com/home, http://home.example.com, or http://www.example.com - it's a good idea to pick one of those URLs as your preferred (canonical) destination, and use 301 redirects to send traffic from the other URLs to your preferred URL. You can also use Webmaster Tools to set your preferred domain.
    You're merging two websites and want to make sure that links to outdated URLs are redirected to the correct pages.
