    Moving Portion of Site to Keyword Domain?


    Has anyone taken a category of an existing website and moved all the pages of that category to a keyword domain using 301 redirects for better rankings.

    I'm not interested in debating the importance of the keyword in the domain, or branding consistency, etc, that's not the subject of this thread. If all other ranking factors are equal it does help. End of story.

    Example: gear dot com take all the camping gear and move it to domain campinggear dot com One issue I can see is if there are a lot of external links to the pages using the old domain that never get updated, does the 301 pass the link juice indefinitely or does Google initially or eventually frown on such a move?
