    Redirect Old Domain


    Hello All,

    Going to try this again. Please everyone be nice.

    Ok, so there is an old domain a .com, that at one time years ago got a manual action that has been removed. It still has some really bad links, some decent and has a great age and domain rating.

    The other person create a new site with similar content, that is flourishing. The .net version. 2 times the organic traffic, doing very well.

    Here is the question, what does everyone think about doing the best disavow job possible on the .com version to remove the bad links, when that has been accepted, redirect the whole domain to the .net at the domain level?

    Thus, pulling off as many bad inbound links to the old .com site and keeping the good ones. Then redirecting.

    Neither site has a manual action of any sort.

    Thoughts? Thanks

    If you can get rid of the toxic links and are prepared to sit it out. Then it could work.

    Once you redirect the domain to your money site monitor it very closely. If it goes south, you can always remove the redirect and disavow the domain.

    Hope you didn't pay an arm and a leg for the domain. Good luck.
    If you have never failed in your life, you have never achieved anything Noteworthy !
