    Need some advice on how to move forward with 301 redirect.

    Some Details:
    OK I made 3 websites back in November last year. They all were 1 page website. They were all TEST websites, after learning a lot from this forum I tried to give this a try on my niche keywords. I never tired BlackHat Before always was with WhiteHat until my niche was overtaken by BlackHat Guys :D


    No. Of Keywords: 12 Keywords
    EMS are from 2000 to 9000


    All these are from same niche. With website1 and website2 targeting same keywords and website3 with different keywords.

    Website1: In the start I made some web2.0 links, articles, social and PBN links(Fiver + BHW). All the keywords start to ranking but were in 30s or 40s. Then I added SAPE links. Ranked for about 1.5-2 months, I banked:). Current rankings are dancing on 5th or 6th pages of the keywords and around 300 for the main High Competition keywords(Mainly because of over optimization of these keywords). I am doing some link diversification to see if that helps but I think I am wasting my time with that. Any Suggestion about this.

    Website2: Only Made web2.0 links, articles, social, mostly Fiverr services. Never ranked TOP and did not point SAPE links at them because I wanted to check if my keywords can rank without sape. They did not rank and the keywords are on 4th or 5th pages.

    Website3: Started with very little SAPE Links as the keywords I was targeting was very easy and someone mentioned that this keyword be ranked with only 20 High PR links so I gave it a try but it did not work. I added some PBN links and high quality Web2.0 and some social. Keywords are dancing in 7th and 8th Page. Thinking for adding more HIGH PR LINKS.(Any Suggestions)

    I have learned alot from these 3 websites but I am stuck now about what to do with them.

    I am thinking for 301ing the websites but need some advice.

    Option A: Should I 301 website1 to website2 or website3?
    Option B: Should I 301 website2 and/or website3 to website1 so that I can get some anchor text diversification and my keywords might rank again.
    Option C: Should I 301 website2 to website3 and transfer ALL SAPE links to website 2?
    Option D: Point SAPE on Website2 Or Website3 and See if it ranks.
    Option E: Should I LEAVE THESE WEBSITES AND START NEW FROM WHAT I HAVE LEARNED [​IMG]

    Any other advice from members.
    Thanks in advance

    If you 301 site one to another site, that site may rise in the rankings but eventually will be penalized as well.
    If you value sites two and three, build site four and point some links to it, then 301 site one to it and you may get your old rankings back for a while. Then when site four is penalized, rinse and repeat.

    Consider that website1 is penalized now and I 301 it to website2 or website3. Do you think website2 or 3 will rise in ranking even for a week?
    If they won't rise in ranking then I think I should make links for website2 or website3 and try to rank them.

    Or I can also make website2 and/or website3 buffer websites and 301 to a brand new website4?

    Why throw good money after bad? These are all 1 page websites, it's so easy to start over.

    I would do new site, doing 301 redirect only work for short period of time, if you want to test how long before google take it down then you can do either one but if i were you, start a new site and still doing testing 301 to see how google behave and see how fast they throw you out or maybe not

    I think I should start with new website and point my sape to buffer website.
    I will keep testing my older websites until they are fully useless. I will point Website1 to Website2 or website3 and see if it ranks.

    I am open to more advices :)

    Thanks all

    That has a good chance of working, if you don't mind taking the chance of website2 or website3 being penalized relatively quickly.
