    I have two sites which are in the same niche, one got hit by penguin slightly (not much only around 10 or so places) and the other I have not really done much work on but it is in the top 100 for all keywords.

    I want to redirect the site that dropped a few places to the other and carry on building links to that one. It already has around 3k links on it so how does it work when you redirect another domain to it? Do the links combine and it give it a boost? I am not doing it for this reason, basically I didn't own the domain that got slapped and I want to sell the site as I am moving onto something else but I want to get it to the first page first of all.

    If you do 301 redirect to your new site, then your new site will get all the link juice from old redirected site. Also when a user clicks your old site he will be automatically diverted to your new domain so that you won't loose your old domain traffic.
    Your now domain will be ranked easily because of old domain's link juice. But be aware after some time if you remove 301 redirect your rank may come down.

    How can you redirect a site that's not yours?! Either you're hacking the htaccess or you're sentence lacks some other key words.

    To the matter in hand, if both sites are yours, follow scorpion kings advice.

    I didn't really make myself clear sorry. The first domain is mine as in iv been using it, I have all the passwords etc for the registrar it's just I made the mistake in uni to use someone else's card to buy it and he used his email address and stuff. I don't speak to him anymore so I can't transfer that domain to anyone else that's all.

    Thanks for all your advice though guys ill go ahead and do it.

    Is it really so? If that's true negative SEO has become way too easy.
    Just 301 your slapped domain to your worst competitor and start all over with a new site lol. :D

    301 don't pass penalty. If its so as @mikpel said you can redirecta penalized domain to you your competitor and make him penalize.
    The cons of 301 is your redirected site slowly loose its rank and link value.
