I purchased in January of this year, a domain name that was used by a competitor that went out of business a few year ago. The Domain did not had anymore incoming links. I purchased it because of the domain name and I did not want an other competitor to get it.
I did a redirect to one page of my website (the second page in value). But I noticed that my ranking did drop a lot even on the sure keywords that I've been number 1 for several years. I did drop a few places on the sure keywords but one the weak ones, I dropped to the second page.
Can be because of of this redirect?
The redirect was done on January and I dropped on the second week of April.
