Will A 301 Redirected Aged Domain Bypass Google’s New Domain Sandbox And Pass On The “SEO Juice”?

By April

 

In episode 260 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if a 301 redirected age domain will bypass Google's new domain sandbox and pass on the “”SEO juice””.

The exact question was:

Hi Guys, . . . thank you VERY much as usual for your great Hump Day help :- ) . . . . Just a quick question . . . I know that you are not a fan of using aged domains for seo purposes for several reasons, like, you want to control “”branding””, finding a niche related aged domain with a “”clean”” niche related backlink profile is very rare, etc . . . . but if I wanted to use one and have it 301 redirected to a new domain for a local business site, will that bypass Google's “”new domain sandbox”” and make them treat the new domain as if it has been around for a while as well as pass on the “”seo juice”” from the aged domain? (smile) . . . . by the way. I remember your excellent advice on using your Hosting Provider's C-Panel to do the 301 redirect instead of the Domain Provider (smile)

Does Using Subdomains Produce Better SEO Juice Than Using Pages For Multi-City Local Lead Gen Site?

By April

In episode 232 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked if using subdomains produce better SEO juice than using pages for multi-city local lead gen site.

The exact question was:

Thank you VERY much again for the help you provide on Hump Days (smile) . . . . . . When setting up a multi-city local lead gen site, you have advised in the past to use sub-domains of the main domain for each city instead of using a “”page”” under the main domain . . . . . . When using “”pages”” I know that the seo “”juice”” can be spread among all the city pages but, when using sub-domains, does the seo “”juice”” spread among all the subdomains to help each one rank better, or does each sub-domain stand on its own for seo purposes?
