I picked up domain recently which has a really nice backlink profile, and I'm planning on using it for my money site. What appears to have happened, is that industry authority had used that site for years as a sort of outlet for press releases, while also maintaining a separate organizational domain. The last year of the domain's lifespan, they had simply 301'd the domain to their organization's main page. There are about 150+ press release type posts on the site, none of which seem to have been moved to the current after the discontinued use of the domain I picked up. I'm planning on using the site for almost strictly unique content, which will all be authoritative posts of substantial length. Nothing sketchy is to be done. My question is with regards to preserving the links to the old posts, which are still alive for the most part. My plan was to start at the top of the list of the most valuable backlinks and create new posts with similar content manually, with added 301 redirects specifically for those urls. I don't want to just 301 all the 404s to the homepage, or even inner category pages honestly. I'm weighing the possibility of simply recreating all these old posts with redirects to the new urls, which I can do via script in ~hour. I would rather rewrite them all manually however, if there is a more than minimal chances of being penalized for duplicate content. The site isn't going to resemble to old site at all, as its not a "resurrection" type goal, just an extra boost from existing backlinks when starting out. Does anyone have any experience doing this with a money site? I've done it on PBNs without a second thought, but I really don't want to throw up any red flags with this site if possible. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
