For the love of god ya'll... everything I read says the trust/authority of a domain is huge now and will only get more important... so I bought a high authority domain in my niche with no issues only good links from top sites no bs at all. Lets pretend the domain is petproducts.com and it was not an active site for about a year as the previous owner decided to discontinue, but before that it was a 15 year old site that had a DA/PA of lets say around 60. I also own lets say dogtoys.com and it was an ok domain with a DA/PA of around 50 with a linking profile pretty good itself that was a 16 year domain no bs linking. Now, I created a category for the petproducts domain called say petproducts.com/dog-toys/ and I 301 forwarded the dogtoys.com to that category about a month ago (34 days ago to be exact) keeping linking in tact. My DA/PA is now in the 70's and my TF is sitting at 30 and CF is at 70, set to go even higher in the next month or so as more yummy hufpost, cnn, nypost related links index.... yet, I see no difference in ranking as what I used to with Just my dogtoys.com domain where I was stuck for almost all my toys on the first page but always sitting like position 5,6, 7, 8 or worse. Yet, the pages ahead of me are lower pa/da with no linking (that I can see) to the internal pages that are outranking me and I even have decent links going to the individual pages. What the hell??? I am getting so frustrated, any advice? I can't spam or do anything that would put the domain in harms way with Google and must be able to pass a manual review without a doubt. Advice? Experience? Thoughts?
