    hello,

    what will happen to a site like described to my title?

    1. B domain is 100% copy A domain
    2. A domain redirect (301 full path) to domain B
    means that A/page1.php will redirect to B/page1.php
    3. B domains have some <a href points to (for example: ) A/page1.php , or A/page2.php
    as mentioned on 2. A/page1.php and A/page2.php both will redirect to B/page1.php B/page2.php

    is it safe for both domains?

    FYI: my TF/CF for both domains increased by this method

    I think it will not make much difference in metrics.
    You have to add more useful content on both the site A and site B.
    If you using this technique you will not get good CTR and permanent visitors to your site.
    Add some relevant visuals like images,videos on site B it may increase your metrics.

    2. A domain redirect (301 full path) to domain B
    means that A/page1.php will redirect to B/page1.php

    domain A is only 301 to B

    In both A and B domains, you have the same content and how TF/CF will get increased.So I said you to add some different contents but relevant to the niche on both sites to increase your site metrics.Hope you understand :)

    1. after 301, means A will gone from google search and replaced with B domain, user can't even access A anymore, why should I add content on A?
    2. my question is "is it safe for both domains?" not about site metrics

    Hope you understand

    Yes,it's safe I think but make some changes in Site B because Google will have all details about your site A.
    And try to get links from authoritative and affiliated sites for Site B.

    I don't think google's duplicate content rules catch 301, because if it do, how can people moves his site?

    I see there are many "experts" here.

    OP, nothing bad is going to happen if you redirected A to B full path.

    It's normal to get a growth in TF/CF for B, because of the redirect
    It's normal to have a growth in TF/CF for A, because of the links it gets from B but that's temporary, in time it will decrease due to lack of new links and activity.

    My recommendation is to remove all the links from B to A, from a usability and user experience standpoint, liking to "dead" sites is not ok. This may affect you in the long run.

    Also, continue building links for B and creating content as usual. Basically you're good.

    thanks for your answer, but if I remove B to A links now, will it affect my ranking? yes, I'm still building natural links for B sites.

    No it won't affect your rankings. You may see some fluctuations for a while but they will settle back to the original position or better, this happens for every sitewide redirect. You will have your rankings affected if you keep linking to sites that are not accessible anymore. It's a sign to Google that your site could be abandoned.

    If site B has links to site A that redirect to a page on site B, you may be better off just changing the links to point straight to the page on B. Less confusing for crawlers and less impact on your server.
