    Hi Guys,

    I have a site a couple of years old that got hit with the ALN massacre, i was wondering if i setup a subdomain on it and treat it like a brand new site will the penalty pass over straight away? i'm guessing pretty much yeah but no harm in asking :)

    cheers guys

    Graham

    It's not worth your effort to test on subdomain, better try get new domain.

    No.. Adding sub domain in the penalized sites will never work good for brands... better create a new domain name.. All the best.

    No one answered his question. Penalty will not pass over. Probaly a better idea to buy a new domain though. Depends what you gonna use it for though.

    I would be sure it was actually penalized before starting over with a new site. It may have fallen in the rankings due to another factor.

    You'll be better off starting on a clean slate. It probably won't be a good use of your time to invest on content and links on a penalized domain.
