    The following information is just a test from me and not validated by any sources. I have conducted a test and the rankings behave as if this idea might work. There is a chance that I might be wrong, though but I want to share this anyway.

    Idea: Double your Linkjuice.

    When building links for your domain, you mostly have the chance to get links from a certain number of domains. Most often, you are able to get a second link from that domain but as multiple links from single domains do not help very much more, it has no big effect.

    Some months ago, I moved my domain from the old domain name (olddomain.com) to a new domain name (newdomain.com), because the new one was better. The old domain directed via 301-redirect to the new domain and I also made that switch in Google webmaster tools.

    After moving the domain, I do not changed the inbound links to the old domain to the new domain, I made a second link on most of the domains to the new domain.

    Links before domain transfer:
    linksourceA.com -> Link -> olddomain.com
    linksourceB.com -> Link -> olddomain.com
    = two inlinks

    Links after domain transfer
    linksourceA.com -> Link -> olddomain.com -> 301redirect -> newdomain.com
    linksourceA.com -> Link -> newdomain.com
    linksourceB.com -> Link -> olddomain.com -> 301redirect -> newdomain.com
    linksourceB.com -> Link -> newdomain.com
    = four inlinks

    I steadily built the links from the same domains to the new domains without deleting the old ones. And guess what, the rankings got better and better as if these were links from new domains! It is just a thesis and I guess some argue, that Google is smart enough to limit the domain diversity, but the rankings show otherwise for some months now. This idea is based on the fact, that at most times, if you are able to get one link from a domain, you are able to get two links from a domain.

    PS: Always make sure, that your 301-redirect via .htaccess does not simply forward all links to the root of your new domain. It should forward the links to the same link but with just the new domain-name. That way, all your posts and pages still get the linkpower. Here is my .htaccess file, which also redirects non-www. links to the www-version:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.olddomain.com$ 
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.newdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^olddomain.com$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.newdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]
