    A little info:

    i have two websites:
    1st - 1.5 years old ,
    Pa33,
    da22
    google page two for several keywords.
    bing/yahoo page one
    Website done

    2nd - I just bought it back. It use to be my main site but lost it due to funding issue. I just bought it when the price went down.
    On some pages for google local biz but not on organic
    Age-2008
    PA 42
    Da 31
    website not done.
    Website name is not so catchy but okay

    both trust flow is about the same


    should I redirect the 2nd website to the first or should I create a website for the 2nd then redirect the first site? Or make them two separate sites targeting the same keywords in two different cities?

    your expert opinion please.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mikey

    I would redirect the second to the first if I were you.

    I certainly wouldn't redirect the first site since it's already ranking. I actually think you should fill out site #2 and compete with yourself so to speak and dominate the SERPs in a given niche, assuming it's profitable enough to support two sites.

    Redirecting an expired site, makes it lose it age - Such Redirects are Not too helpful, in my experience.

    But If they're in the same niche.. and its not spammed to death then go ahead and do it :)

    The site was picked up right away by a well known website seller. I checked who is and the age remains the same.

    What you're saying is that if it gets picked up or sold then it loses it's age?

    This wasn't the choice but I was thinking about it. I think that I'll go this route since the site is in the same niche and same city as before. I don't think it will be hard to SEO
