Hi people, BHW is pretty much the first place I go to looking for help/answers regarding anything that involves money making online. Most members here are amazing and help a lot. I am here yet again with a dilemma I am in regarding two sites that I have. I am not really an IMer like you people. I just have a forum where I sell ads to make some money. The two sites that I am talking about, lets call them domain1 (my already established site) and domain2 (the new site I started). Both are forums. Domain1 forum and domain2 forum have somewhat related niche. Domain1 forum is established and making me money. Whereas, I just purchased domain2.com (just the domain) and have put up a forum there. Domain2.com was a ranked domain with a blog that's why I purchased it and I deleted the blog and put a forum there. According to my expectation, domain2.com should have been getting a lot of traffic as it has a few ranked keywords but I was wrong. The sites above domain2.com in Google are official sites of the niche so they are taking about 98% of all the search traffic. But it still gets some traffic. Now the issue is that I am having a really hard time getting the domain2 forum populated. I see two options; (1) keep working on domain2 forum and try to build it OR (2) merge domain2 forum with domain1 forum and redirect domain2 URL to domain1. This will give a little bit of boost to domain1 forum and since its already an established forum most new visitors coming from domain2 MIGHT be tempted to join. But the question is, if I redirect domain2 to domain1, will domain1 take domain2's rankings in Google? If not, then there is no point of doing this. What do you all advise me to do?
