I have a blog that has been penalized by Google, and the blog is on the last page/bottom of google search engine each time I search for any of my post. I have tried 301 redirecting it to a new blog, the new blog was also hit, and sink down to bottom as the first domain. Now I want to maintain my brand name and start up a new blog from scratch without any cloning, but I am scared of getting hit again. What I need now is that when my users access my site old domain, it should be redirect to this new blog i want to create, but I don't want any penalty. Is there anyway to do that? or what if i redirect the entire old blog to a page and say click here to continue which will link them to the new blog I am about creating, e.g domainA.com and all its pages will be redirected to domainA.com/continue.html then on the continue.html will just contain a link of the new blog I am building from scratch with the anchor text CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE Will that also pass the penalty ?
