First off, if this post is in the wrong area I apologize...
I recently took a bad Google (-50) penalty that appears to be from a few of my sites interlinked... It was not to try an "manipulate" the search at all, just my own personal evaluation (laziness) which comes from " if it aint broke don't fix it"
My problem is that while I separated everything into my 2 main sites with no interlinking my main product site which has gained a bit of loyal customers is left out in the cold... Since I was building traffic to that one product site and it was where people purchased from I get repeat customers... Unfortunately the way things went I want to bail on the site to be in full compliance with Google before submitting reconsideration.
Is there a safe way to take down the site but redirect it to my "new" main site for awhile and stay in compliance?
