    one of my site was hit by Penguin because of high percentage of exact anchors. I'd like to know whether i can use these articles on my new site if i park the original domain? I don't want to 301 as I'm not good at.

    Some questions about 301:

    1. If i 301 Site A to Site B, and then Site B gets hit as well. I build a new site C. So which one is better : Site A 301 to Site B 301 to Site C or Site A 301 to Site C, Site B 301 to Site C

    2. If Site A gets hit and I 301 it to Site B for a while, then can i cancel the 301 and rebuild Site A?

    Hope someone can help answer them. Thanks very much.

    Yes, you can use the old articles on the new websites. Many people who churn and burn websites do that. When your website is penalised, what this means is that the domain is penalised, not the content.

    I've heard of people using a 301 redirect on their old domain to their new domain only to have the penalties transfer to the new domain. Think of it like building a bridge so that the penalties can across over and hit each website.

    A 301 redirect is meant to be a permanent move. I think in this case, for a "Temporary 301", you would want to place a 302 redirect. I would assume that since a 302 is temporary and that the search engines will see it this way, this could prevent the penalty from transferring and it will allow your visitors enough time to know the new domain name.

    Thanks for your reply. one more question: who should i use the content on my new site? After my old site deindexed completely or immediately when i park the old domain?

    Site a to site b, site b gets hit, site a to site c. Some people have had good results 301ing a hit site to a new domain, but most only rank for a few days few weeks after the 301.

    Oh as for content, I always re use my site, but I take the domain off, let it settle, then add another domain a few month later.

    I would wait a couple of weeks or take mickyfu's advice, although I don't see the harm in transferring a new domain over to your old website a little sooner.
