Hey all...

Situation:

moneysite is a local legit cleaning business.
It was hanging around page 3 on google....

I had a similar niche website which had some decent links, and age, so I 301'd it to money site...

After 3 days moneysite hit page 1. Top 3 spots on most keyterms relevant to it..... happy days...

After 7 days moneysite then tanks back to page 3 where it started.

After 14 days still page 3.

The website i 301'd was anchor keyword rich...
My initial thorts were that

1) Google algo somehow learning/leart about 301's used in the manor i used it
2) Google algo penalising money site beacuse the 301 anchors are too keyword heavy (20%)

Any one else experience similar?

a) Should I hold on more time, see what happens
b) should I remove 301 and just that as a buffer site.
c) should i disavow the 301, so technical tell google to ignore it, but somehow keep some juice going

wait another week and if it doesn't pop back, point it at another site on page 100 and see if it moves it up. Then you know if it is the 301 or your site with the issue. :smile:

I'm doing lots of tests with 301s. Keep us updated in a week or two. I'm very interested in seeing what happens.

Change your anchor text by adding more links to your 301 make sure your main and secondary keywords are under 10% of your keyword strategy.

You can also change content if you see that you don't need to add more links.
