    Sup guys, I currently have a site that's being powered by a whole bunch of blog network post and high pr 2.0s. Site is killing its niche, ranked #1 for every term I target in a somewhat competitive niche (isnt a cakewalk). Problem is, niche was just a temporary rank and then bank crazy amounts of money for 3-4 months while item stays popular. Now, the niche is on its last legs and within a month or two, will not be worth much if anything. I don't want a site with such power to go to waste, I wanted to give some of its power to a site I haven't SEOed in a while. Are 301 redirects still effective? I want to start sending some SAPE links to this new site, but wanted it to have some rankings before I did so, will this 301 help or nah?

    301's still work effectively for me. I've only ever 301s contextual stuff though that 'half' still makes sense on the target page.

    I probably wouldnt do SAPE and 301s at the same time though.

    When it comes to 301, I suggest you test it out and see for yourself.

    One guy says it's effective, another says it's ineffective. As you know (since you're raking in money from the niche), there's isn't a one-size-fits-all approach for SEO so it is with 301's.

    Make a naked 301. Not much results? Point SAPEs or high PR links to it and see if link juice flows. Not that great? Try out other links or whatever.

    Just my two cents.
