    I think you should give more information
    what was the pr of the new site
    had it got backlinks
    was it deindexed
    what did you put on the new site

    PR is N/A It' new site and google not update Pagrank yet ...
    New site have backlinks for sure ..
    No it's not deindexed but dropped in SERP .
    Two sites are same niche but with different contents title etc .
    It was fail test . usually people use redirect 301 when they change web site domain name
    and moving whole contents to the new one .
    I already read that Google not trust on redirect 301 if the contents are not the same .
    That something I test my self so everyone don't do it .

    It does work I have used it many times even using different content. Maybe you was using content that was a lot less optimised than your previous site?

    The reason why it does work is that people genuinely do change domain names from time to time and company names etc so Google treats it as though they have just changed names. Rankings usually stay the same or maybe lose a few spots (in my experience).

    It must be a content change not the 301 redirect.
