I've recently acquired two websites which I intend on flipping and selling for a huge markup one year from now. Both websites are forums and both websites are forums about the same topic. Website #1 1 year old domain PR 1 100+ visitors per day Very Little backlinks Poor SEO Website #2 5 year old domain PR 0 Poor Backlinks Unknown Visitors per day 3rd page of Google for target Keyword Phrase The second website was actually a huge forum at one time. I knew the original owner and there were a ton of people visiting. Now it is dead and hardly anyone visits. Now, here is the problem/question. I have a domain with the keyword phrase that both of these websites target. My original plan was to merge both websites into the new domain and permanently redirect and do a change of address in Google. Any individual pages/threads that actually bring traffic would also redirect to the new location. However, I'm starting to doubt that I should merge website #2 since it has 5 years worth of age and was once large (so it obviously worked). Any advice?
