    I've placed a 301 redirect from one domain possibly to another domain. After about a week. The original domain fell of the serps and the other one did not move. Should I wait a little longer, or should I assume that the other one is indeed penalized and a 301 redirect wont do it any good.

    For me it usually dose not take longer then a week it is not instant when it happens tho so all of your pages wont instantly be indexed when it happens.

    Well my pages are already indexed. And usually when I do the redirect I will have both sites really close to each other in the serps for maybe a day or so. Its not happening anymore. Not sure if its because google is acting slower or if the site really is penalized.

    301 redirects take up to 30 day as far as I know.
    The best way to check if the redirect worked is to google this:

    site: oldsite.com

    Click on that little screenshot preview button and see if it shows your new site. The best way is to have different logos on the 2 sites .

    For me personally it has taken up to 2 months to see the full benefit of a 301. I wouldnt keep pinging the old domain. If it has slipped out the rankings it means the big G has found the 301. Your new site will rise eventually given time f the 301 is strong enough. Sometimes google makes you wait in order to see if you will remove the 301
