|Redirect PR4 site to PR3 site to combine PageRank|
| 11:17 pm on Oct 3, 2013 (gmt 0)|
I have 2 sites with the same subject matter that have been hit "mildly" by Penguin.
All the affected pages are toast, but when I create new content it still ranks pretty well.
So the sites are not totally hopeless.
One of the sites has a pagerank of 4 although the domain name doesn't fit my needs anymore.
The other site has a much better brandable name and PR3.
Would it be a good idea to redirect the site with PR4 to the one PR3 and shut down the PR4 URL?

I would personally not worry about PR. As your PR3 site has a better brandable name, this would be the way to go.
Would you be redirecting pages from PR4 site to a page on PR3 site OR would you in fact be merging sites (moving all/some of the content from PR4 site to PR3 site)?

The PR4 site content is worthless because it got Penguined...
So I will stop registering the domain name and redirect the whole site to the PR3 site.
Will the all the link juice from the PR4 site go to the PR3 site?

Link juice (minus approx. 15%) will, but so may the penalty too.
Hence I think you should be very careful if you intend to redirect a site hit by Penguin, in case you do not pass on the penalty. Here is more on this - you should study these threads carefully:

In order to redirect you have to control the domain, so don't drop the registration.
