    I've been reading a lot on bh seo recently. I am in no way an expert in the matter, but every day i see clearer in the shallow waters of the SEA E O :eek:

    Anyhow, putting aside all the cheesy rhymes now. During my encounters, countless times have i read about doing aged domains 301 redirects to pass link juice (or is it to pass backlinks?), and altough i have a vague idea of what it does, i'm not entirely sure i understand how it works.

    Does this describe a strategy where you have a good website that eventually gets penalized by the SERPS, and you decide to 301 redirect it to a brand new website with the end goal of passing it's domain authority and backlinks to it?

    If this above statement is true, since the old domain already got penalized by google, wouldn't it be counter-productive to link your brand new domain into a "bad neighbourhood"?

    Can anybody recommend me a a good read on the subject? I'll greatly appreciate any posts, articles, tutorials or even personal explanations on the matter!

    Thanks!

    In theory the 301'd domain will pass link juice but not any domain associated penalties.

    301 will pass link juice and penalties but firstly link juice, than few weeks after that penalties. One guy in my country is ranking for keyword "seo" but in my native language. He create shitload of links to domain, than domain is slapped, 301 to new domain (but not 100% new - domain with some backlinks) and so on. Aged domain without strong backlinks is not worth any money.

    I did this, spent some cash on a high PR page, I did it right and it didnt help all that much. I would spend my efforts somewhere else the next time around.

    Thanks for your reply,

    I guess i kind of get it more now. In my opinion there is now two plausible ways to use an old domain 301 redirect:

    1. You have a brand new domain name and you want to rank a big competitive keyword with it. You go on godaddy auctions, snapnames, namejet (and the other), and you find a high-pr, aged and authoritary domain to buy. From there, you do a 301 redirect from this bought domain to your brand new domain, and this will pass its backlinks and part of it's authority. Implying that this domain was NOT penalized by google before, you will benefit greatly even after a couple of weeks of it, as it will only have passed you positive authority and backlinks.

    2. You possess an aged domain that has gained authority and backlinks but gets slapped by google eventually. So you start a brand new website and you do a 301 redirect from your old, penalized domain to this new one. This will have a short term positive effect on the new domain as it will gain it's backlinks, but eventually it will also pass on the penalities. So this means that after a couple of weeks you'd need to stop doing the 301 redirect.

    Is that right?
