Will Google Slap A New Domain Since It’s 301 Redirected To An Old Domain In The Same Hosting Account?

By April


In episode 91 of Semantic Mastery’s weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked if Google will slap a new domain that is being redirected from an old domain within the same hosting account.

The exact question was:

Hey guys,

So i have a domain that caught some bad link juice and now has consistently bounced around the page 2 – 3 swinging wildly in position for 4 months now. I would like to a new branded domain and 301 the old domain to the new domain. The thing is I will move the old domain to a new hosting provider which will be the same account and host that my new purchased branded domain will be on. Will google slap my new domain since I am 301ing my old domain which is on the same hosting account as the new domain? — I still want to use the old domain as I put 6+ months of link building into it and want to still use that juice on the new branded domain.

The reason why I am doing the domain transfer is I do not want to pay $155 a year for hosting. I hvae the domain parked for $16 a year can I just do the 301 and leave the domain parked? How do I do it if the domain stays parked?

Thanks as always
