    Hey all,

    So I bought 2 website yesterday mainly because of the traffic they have. Now I'm thinking about redirecting them to my main website. The niches are close but keywords aren't.

    I know that it'll pass the link juice if I used 301 redirect. But can it harm my main website in any way? Should I do that?

    Thanks :)

    If you do 301 redirect it won't affect your main site. But you may loose your PA/DA of redirected sites soon in future. Also it will slowly loose there traffic bcz of no bots crawling them.

    Hey Shaggy,

    First of all thanks for your reply. And my name and age are very close to yours (Shadi - 92) :)

    Anyway, are you 100% sure it can't harm my SEO or raise a red flag for Google? Won't G hate this?

    Thanks for your reply and yeah I don't really care about the redirected websites. I just want to suck their traffic and get what I can from them to my main site.

    It won't harm your site for sure. And i haven't read/heard/saw any site affected by 301 redirect(s). I know few people who redirected morethan 10 domains and its running successfully. Personally for every new domain i start i buy a old domain with good PA & DA and redirect it to my new domain. This way google see my new domain as old one. :)

    that;s temp.. he'll loose the rankings within a week or 2.

    @OP.. no it won't harm your site.. just use the redirection wisely so that you can replace the rankings of old sites with the new 1

    Hey man,

    I don't want to be ranked for specific pages. I have no idea what's the website ranked for. I was just going to redirect all the pages on the 2 websites to my main website's homepage
