    My question involves the application of a permanent redirect to a third party domain name. Assume that I have OLDDOMAIN.com which is ten years old and boasts thousands of backlinks (the nature and quality which you just cannot get anymore).

    (1) If I do a permanent redirect to NEWSITE.com, when will the "juice actually" transfer. (In terms of days, months, etc...)

    (2) What happens if after a sufficient period time required to transfer the PR from OLDDOMAIN.com to NEWSITE.com I then put the OLDOMAIN.com site back up with its original content? Assume the backlinks still point to OLDDOMAIN.com. Will OLDDOMAIN.com get its ranking back. Will NEWSITE.com have the juice?

    What happens?

    This is important and for a corporate client so please no speculators or theories. If anyone has cold hard facts, please advise.

    Thanks

    1. A 301 redirect is recognized by Google as a change of address, and the ranking will be copied. It usually happens the next time Google spiders your page and updates it with the information recorded. Blogs and high PR sites get updated every few days, whereas a low PR website may take a couple weeks.
    2. OLDDOMAIN.COM will get its linkjuice back once google respiders and reindexes it (recognizing the 301 redirect is gone), however anything NEWSITE.com gained will be dropped and it will be as though it never happened.
    To answer your question bluntly, No, you can't just copy & paste PR/linkjuice. Google is smarter than that.

    Thanks for your response. So for example, if OLDDOMAIN.com was 301 redirected to NEWSITE and kept that way for a year; and I bought OLDDOMAIN.com and set that up, it would get its original link power back?
