    To 301 or not?

    Ok, basically I'm trying to decide whether or not I should do a 301 perm. redirect on my old site onto my new, here's the reason...

    I checked the PR of the old site and it went from 3/10 --> 0/10. Does this mean I'm "banned" or perhaps did something "wrong" and I wouldn't want to transfer this? I've submitted to some FFAL sites, does Google not like this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Check to see if your old site is indexed by doing a site:www.site.com .. if its indexed, it may just mean that the ffa links you have received were devalued to nothing. I doubt they penalize sites that are getting links from ffa sites..

    And Google does NOT like FFA sites... they come and go and are usually banned quickly. When they are banned, then there is ZERO pr to pass to the sites that are listed.

    With all of this said, if your site is indexed as its always been then I would just get some quality links to your old site and not even worry about creating a new site.

    Google recommends using 301 redirects.

    Never ever post to FFAL sites. There are no positive benefits, only negative ones!
