    New Domain


    Hi,
    I am being forced to change domain names and have a questions about the current content.
    The plan is setup new hosting and 301 old to new pages. Question is, if I use the same content will Google see this as duplicate content? Or will the redirect not cause the duplicate penalty?

    If you can set up a proper 301, then there should be no problem, although it can take some time for things to propagate.

    Also, you should make an effort to change your existing backlinks and make them point to the new domain..........

    If, however, you're moving domains because of a linking penalty or Penguin, then that's a different story.
