    I have 3 websites ranking in the same niche for the same keywords. ( Content is written in a unique way though ).
    Website 1 - 1 year old #70
    Website 2 - 4 months old #15
    Website 3 is a new website which is a EMD ( I managed to buy it ) - 2 days old #N/A

    Should I create redirects from websites 1 and 2? Currently I have a homepage link from website 1 ranking#70 to my new website. All of these websites are on the same hosting plan( Do these have the same IP?) , so i'm assuming google can tell they are owned by the same person ( I want some feedback on this)? They are also connected via the same google account (GA and GWT). Should I create 301 redirects instead of homepage links?

    Website 2 used to rank #4 but now dropped to#15 ( I don't know what caused it - it dropped suddenly, I assumed it was because I changed my wordpress theme).

    I would never link from one of my own sites to another one which I own IF they are all on the same hosting. This could get your ranks tanked as Google would assume that you want to game something...

    If you ask me I would rank all of them separatly.

    +1

    Change keywords on sites 1 and 3, completely fill in contact details for all sites. Why do 3 sites, it is better to promote one, I think.
    Wish you success.
