    I own a 14 year old domain PR4 with 74k backlinks (according to Ahrefs) and I'm confused about what to do. First off Ahrefs

    shows much much higher numbers than anywhere.

    I believe that if I 301 redirect the domain to an irrelevant niche it may raise a red flag. Also the www. has much higher URL value

    than the non - everything else is the same, so is it important to redirect nonww to www before I do anything?

    Provided that I first redirect nonwww to www which is a comic book magazine (BTW it's attached to a very popular magazine and

    I reached out the owner of the current site related to my domain - if I decided to make this site a stand alone asset I could even

    write for them which would be so amazing but what's preventing me to do so is the time and dedication involved in a project of

    this nature. I love some black hat strategy but I don't consider myself hardcore enough... not smart enough for that, which is what brings me here)

    The next step is taking the domain (once I've tied www. and nonww together) and 301'ing it to a new web site. I believe from

    everything I've read that Google will slap the domain to the far reaches of hell if I then go ahead and redirect to a site I'm currently

    developing which is in the email marketing space. I plan on going toe to toe with the likes of sites like the one with the chimpanzee.

    Moving along, what if I bring a third web site into play? Let's say I create a web comic about an internet marketer? Then I could have said

    aged domain www dot ******bulletcomics dot com safely redirecting to the comic about a cheesy Warrior Forum Guru and

    maybe I'd call it www dot trailerparkwarriorforumguru dot com and he: sells email lists along with some never seen before

    strategies that EVEN The GOOGLE COPS could never detect
    and then I 301 redirect said fake wood wll panel email guru over to

    my new pride and joy www dot**boxsamurai dot com.

    Would that work? I know nobody could know for sure, but that seems realistic, right? Am I missing anything? Probably

    When you do a 301, it doesn't even need to be a remotely related site... it may help, but all my 301's are totally unrelated and they work just fine :)

    What at about the www dot to nonwwwdot redirect part? Is that important? Thanks

    I'm quite sure my web host does that automatically... I've actually never done that!

    Interesting, what host is that? Bluehost didn't, in fact they screwed that part up for me.
