    I did several powerful 301s at the beginning of the month, and by now, they would normally have had me in pretty good shape on G. This time, not an uptick at all even though they worked great on Bing and Yahoo. (terrific, right? lol)

    Anyone else seeing 301s not working like they have in the past all of a sudden on G this month?

    did domains used for 301s have good backlink profile along with pr, da, pa, etc to match?

    Are you sure google has picked up the 301? 2 friends of mine have recently used 301 and it worked great for them. Although it didn't worked out that great for me.

    I have seen some hot discussions on google forum about it, I think its in G knowledge and maybe they are taking action on it

    The backlink profile is fine, and the 301s are penalized domains with high DA/PA - the method has worked fine for me for a long time.

    Sorry to hear it hasn't worked for you - no way to know if G has picked up the 301s, but ahrefs has.

    I have no doubt G knows about it, wondering if they've finally done something.

    Well, just as an update - I was right.
    Redirects from penalized sites started the first week of June - new site was penalized June 26.
