    I got a C&D on many of my main producing domain names. I now am faced with throwing away a couple years of SEO and starting from scratch, as my entire living depends on this niche (not a full time Internet Marketer, just using IM to build my offline business). I read about a 301 redirect and it seems that may be my saving grace. Can I use the 301 redirect to send the old domains to my new domains AND remove my old domains from the SERPs so as to fly under the radar until I get enough link juice with the new domains to completely drop the old ones? Or will removing my old domains from the SERPs cause them to lose all their link juice?

    a 301 permanent redirect will do both, if someone actually types in the old domain directly they will be forward seamlessly to the new site, but the old site will not appear in any SERPs once the search engines have crawled the .htaccess file.

    Good luck.

    the company that is suing you will keep on checking the domain, if it is forwarded to a new domain, they will still hate it.

    Do you mind sharing the general industry? I'm doing this with a couple made-for-amazon sites and adding "...reviews.com" for instance.
