    Sup BlackHatters,

    I am building an authority domain in the nutrition niche, but I also have a old niche website (which is now ranking for 1st for secondary keyword and 5-8th for primary keyword), this old website was ranking 3rd and now dropped to 5-8th this month.

    ->The niche is the same.
    ->Some of the keywords are the same.
    ->The seo made on the second website was poor (100% automated spin, although, not many links where built).

    Should I 301 redirect the old to the new? Was anyone ever affected by 301 a website with bad link building?

    It would be so good to redirect, the old blog is getting around 100 visitors per day atm, would get some good juice and have visitors to skyrocket the new one very fast.

    Why redirecting if I may ask? you already have the positions and traffic, leave it and create new website - as you wanted - and link from the old one to the new one

    The old site is a niche site, I changed my business prespective a few months ago, if you want to make money you have to help people. My niche website is not helping anyone besides the affiliate marketeer who I am generating leads for, to be honest, so it is like shooting yourself in the foot and losing a great deal of the value that traffic could bring.

    Now if I redirected the old website to the new one, it would mean that I could help 100 people per day achieve their dream physique, the outcome of 100 people visiting my new website would be 1000x better than 100 people visiting a website that is serving has a bridge between a person looking to get fit and a guy selling a shitty e-book.

    then so a 301
    you get all the link juice and the traffic
    but this time you can target better
    make your site as user friendly as possible
    you can build your links to the old site
    and leave your new site for selling.

    Your in a very good position
    best of luck

    Surely the best thing to do is 301 the domain to a deeper page on your new site.

    That should give you maximum ranking benefit for that individual page, preferably using the secondary keyword that the original site is ranking for.

    Should I redirect the page that is ranking on the old domain to a similar page in the new domain and redirect the homepage of the old to the homepage of the new? Or just redirect everything to different inner pages?

    Think more in terms of link juice flow than page redirection. Most of the juice should go to the homepage. Just because you redirect an inner page to a new inner page doesn't mean the new page will rank just like the old one. Redirecting inner pages is more useful if you get direct (aka non-search engine) traffic.
