    Hi there,

    Hopefully someone can help me with the following case:

    Website 1: a long existing website niche with a lot of backlinks.
    Website 2: a quite new website with a few backlinks not a lot of history

    Website 1 got 301 redirected to website 2.

    We would like to use our same linkbuilding sheet that has was used for website 1. This would mean that we have 2 links from one source. One link will be a redirect through website 1 and the other link will be a direct link to website 2.

    Will this be beneficial for our linkbuilding or would Google penalize these kind of workarounds?

    Thanks a lot for the help!

    As long you are doing 301 there is no problem doing this. I just did this for 3 weeks ago, Google has indexed even more pages as before and no warnings what so ever. I must say, the content is only on 1 domain the new one and on the old domain there is a 301 redirect!
