Do redirects support link diversity?

    So if you had a website and that website had lets say 10000 links from 10000 domains and now you moved the info to a different website. You 301 redirected all the links from the old website to the new website. Would google consider those links to still have an ip diversity from 10000 domains or would it just be one domain now since the redirected links are coming from your single old website?

    In theory, the diversity is still there.

    The argument isn't whether or not the backlinks will count as being diversified or from different IP's, the question is whether or not they really count at all.

    Some people say a redirect is the same as a straight link, and some say you lose a lot of link juice. Ask Google for the correct answer;)

    The diversity will stick. I use 301's all the time. You do lose about 10-20% link juice with a 301 but, it's pretty insignificant if you build enough links to it.
