    I recently began a new site (4 months ago) and applied all that I learned from my first site (was a failed venture but a learning experience) into the second site and am doing a lot better. I then thought that I put a lot of work into the first site and dont want it to go to waste. So I took the articles I thought were decent enough in terms of competition and posted them on my new site and did 301 redirects.

    All is fine and dandy however I'm not sure if that was the best move. The reason I say this is because one of the post I redirected was saturated with exact match anchors and on top of that too many backlinks are now going to this one page on my site. I have more backlinks on this page (over 200) than on my homepage and I'm not doing well in SERPS for the keyword (not doing better than ranking on the 8th page and I'm bouncing from there to out of the top 100's). Should I not do this redirect or keep it? What do you guys think?

    PS. I'm getting 162 backlinks from my first site to the post on the secone website because it's on the nav. bar and so every page or URL from my site redirects to this one article and I think that it's too much and not a good move but want a second opinion.
