I have run a domain for 9 years, which had PR5 two years back with DA 49 (which I remember). Now I have run another domain for 4 years in similar keywords but from a different location (as you can see from the CCTLD).
As my old
.np domain is not being useful, I am thinking to redirect it to my new
.au domain. Both of them have similar keywords.
Now, my question is: if I do 301 redirection from the old to the new domain, is that going to carry Google penalty with link juice? (I am not sure why PR is down to nothing in two years. I remember it was hacked a few times and I couldn't fix on time.)
The point is I want to take credit of my own domain, which I maintained for almost 9 years and has very good link juice. Saying that, I am very concerned about losing my new domain's SEO value which I have run for 4 years and worked my butt off to bring into good position.
I can't take a risk to experiment at this stage as my business relies on the new domain. Instead, I would like to add some value from my old domain, which can make my life easier.
Thanks for showing interest. I expect to get some expert advice here.
