    I have a question, i have a website that haves arond 2000 backlinks, it is a 2 year old domain and it is now a PR 3. I had a manual penalization for 10 months ago, i used disawov tool and the penalization was removed completely, BUT i never reach the same ranking again for ANY keywords, and here is what im thinking of. I have another domain that is 11 years old with a PR 0 but i have noticed that when i create article on that old domain and try to rank keywords, the ussual rank very easy, so here is the trick, should i take all my 100 articles and upload them to my old domain PR 0 instead? (i use wordpress) but what about my PR 3 on the other domain? i really think it´s nice to have that PR also if i later on wishes to sell domain. What happens if i redirect from the PR 3 website to my other domain, does the 2000 backlinks then count on my old domain? i also have alots of social signals on my site, will they be lost?

    thanks for advises

    Why? may i ask? i must say that my 11 year old domain has NOTHING to do with my 2 year old domain that are earning the money, but i guess today that doesent matter if the keyword is not in the domain. but 11 years is alot in googles eyes

    You should move all your articles to the 11 year old domain and use 301 or 302 redirects so your visitors are presented with the content they were expecting.
    The only problem with 301 redirect is that it passes the penalty to the new domain so 302 redirect could be the better choice.

    Dude, forget about PR... nobody cares anymore if it's PR3 or PR0... it's all about links to the domain and it seems like we will not see another PR update.

    the domain has no penalization any more, but no matter WHAT i do i cant rank keywords, so i guess there will always be some black rain over that domain.

    all my articles, do i need to transfer them manually? one by one?

    just search this forum, there are a few cases like yours, and it might be google does not truly remove the whole penalty.
    i guess your website is WP so you just transfer db and all the files to the new domain, when done you'll need to redirect your old site to the new, its just a few lines of code, just google it.

    Okay, 1 more question, 1 guy here is saying if i do a 301 direct the penalization will follow the new domain? But why then make a 301 direction if you ruin your new domain with the old penalization?

    301 redirect is the most efficient and search engine friendly method for webpage redirection. It's not that hard to implement and it should preserve your search engine rankings for that particular page. If you have to change file names or or move pages around. It's the safest option. The code 301 is interpreted as moved permanently.

    My suggestion is just go for 301 redirect from 2yrs old domain to 11yrs old domain, as you said that penalty is not there now for 2yrs old domain. Yes, remove all 100 articles from 2yrs domain and upload them in 11yrs old domain. Don't worry about PR, today no one cares about PR.
