    Hey Patrick,
    Thanks for the video.
    In terms of 301’ing from a WordPress install…
    I have a web design site that I want to rank locally.
    Can I just install WordPress, re-create my site on an auction domain and use a 301 redirect plugin to redirect the juice pages to the pages on my local site?
    For example. 301’d to
    And 301’d to
    If that makes sense…
    Thanks buddy!

      Hey Ben,
      Thank you for watching the video.
      You can do that and see what kind of results you get. I personally never 301 redirected twice from the same domain.
      Also, does not have the juice since it’s a new page.
      2 suggestions:
      1. See if you can find an expired inner page of your auction domain and recreate it. And then redirect it to your inner page.
      2. Silo your auction domain from your homepage to your inner page, and then 301 redirect it.
      Keep me updated with your results.

    this is what, I was looking for from the past few days!
    sir, I am Abhishek, I have a bug, please clear it.
    I have 2 expired domains which are very powerful and both the domains are relevant to their niche.
    the thing is, I want to rank 7 keywords and I am going to start with any of one domain within that 2 powerful domains and within 3 months I will push around 5000 words of content in that domain. After 3 months, if I do 301 redirect that 2nd domain to my first domain, will it boost my ranking or not? I am talking about home page 301, Pls co-operate with my English 🙁

    • Patrick says:

      I can’t guaranteee you that you will rank all the time. I suggest to direct your 301 to the page you want to rank and see what kind of results you’re getting.
      Keep me updated with your results though.
      Thank you for watching.

    from last to first that seems a pretty good factor for ranking. What i wanted to ask was that i have used too many tags on my wordpress site. Now i want to delete them as they are increasing my duplicate content percentage. If i do that i am going to get 404s. I am thinking of adding 301s on those tags to my post. Will it be good to do so?

    Hello there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my zynga group? There’s a lot of people that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Thank you

    Howdy would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re utilizing? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a honest price? Thank you, I appreciate it!

    Hi Patric.
    I had 1 website with a good TF/DA/Pagerank. Then I had to 301 redirect to another domain name because Adsense told me the the first domain was offensive. The content of the website is pretty general.
    I am about to create a new website and I would like to know If you think its a good try to 301 redirect those 2 domains to my new one?

    • Patrick says:

      Hi there,
      Make sure to redirect a niche relevant domain with no penalties. Don’t go overboard with more than 1 or 2x 301 redirects though.
      Try it out and let me know your results.
