    I had a few websites recently deindexed by google. Can I 301 redirect to a new domain? Will the link juice pass? Will the links be deindexed as well? Will the new domain be deindexed?

    sorry my first reply was wrong cause I misinterpreted what links you were referring to. Not sure if that will work. possibly? but google will know that the 301 redirect are from a deindexed site.

    Yes, the redirect is possible technically.

    However, there is always the possibility that your penalty is due to something with the backlinks. In that case, you might just transfer the penalty right over to the new domain ;(

    For that reason, I'd suggest some digging and analysis to understand why your site was penalized in the first place. It usually takes something very serious to get truly thrown out of the index altogether.

    Regards..

    Be careful and make sure you don't pass the penalty along to the new site via the 301.

    Google said that it was because of "content quality". Would the number of backlinks fall into that category?

    Three of my websites were all deindexed back to back, two of which were on on the same subject, but I have other websites on that subject and they weren't de-indexed.

    Were you using duplicate content on the other site(s)?

    Some of it was spun content, but there was also manually rewritten content.
