Hi, I have a website with over 500 pages.
The website is a home service website that services clients in different areas of the UK.
My question is, am I able to take down the pages from my URL, leave them down for say a week, so when Google bots crawl the pages, they do not exist.
Can I then re upload them to a different website URL, and then Google wont penalise me for duplicate content?
I know I would of lost juice and page rank, but that doesnt really matter, because the site had taken a knock since the Google update.
Thanks for your help.

Are you just trying to move content from one domain to another and retiring the old domain because of Google penalty problems? In doing this, is it also your wish that Google not know that the two domains (old domain and new domain) are related?

If a site/domain no longer exists on the Internet, all search engine bots delete its existence. Just move your content to the new domain and delete your old domain. Be mindful that any and all backlinks will be lost also. You will be starting fresh. Make mistakes again and ...

Just do a 301 redirect of the old to the new

I don't think he wants to associate the old site's backlinks with the new site.
