# Pass Google Juice to another domain without a 301 redirect

Is there a way to move juice from one domain to another (either the whole domain or page-by-page)?

I was thinking on adding a rel="canonical" on every page on the old domain linking to the new one, but will that pass the juice?

The main purpose is to keep the two domains alive so users can still visit the old domain (and allow them to go to the new one manually) instead of forcing a 301 redirect, at least during a few months before turning the old one down.

Using rel="canonical" is an acceptable solution. I believe that you may lose slightly more "juice" than with a 301 redirect. This Google video implies they are basically the same, but you should use 301 redirects wherever possible (for user experience more than anything).
