    Hi guys,

    Are 301's passing juice still? If so, any tips to get them to pass a lot of juice? If not, why aren't they?

    Also, are link shortener's still passing some decent link juice through them?

    why do you care about link juice.... whats that "juice" ?

    you should be caring logically only if your doing exact type site, url same, content almost same.

    i actually never been in this situation.

    want to know what is exactly in there ?

    Okay okay, sorry about that, just seemed a bit off topic but you have a small point.

    I have still seen it still work but only 80%-70% of total links follow onto new domain.

    The OP is talking about URL shorteners, like Bitly and TinyUrl. Nickvk is talking about 301ing domains. This is why you two are confused. Nickvk isn't wrong about domains though, you want them niche accurate not random. But shortened URLs are a bit longer of an explanation.

    To answer though, URL shorteners don't have the same power they once did. In fact I haven't seen them used often for sheer link juice lately. This is not to say they have none... but they are being used more as a filter between tiers and the money site to ATTEMPT to avoid passing any negative effects of spam. This is highly debatable but I have seen it said here by respected people but have not found it to have much of any effect good or bad in my own tests.

    oh sir, i know "link juice" but i am much against the fact that why you all care so much about it !! it has very less impact on overall success of a website, i know and i believe that, and i was giving him advice coz i thought in that situation only you should care abt it when you build exact same(niche wise) pbn site from an expired domain(same niche which is from)

    I stopped using link shorteners almost a year ago. 301s don't work as they once did. When something becomes too popular, it loses its effectiveness.
