Dear All,

i have a question.

i have recently purchased a domain (eg a.com) with pr3, having no web sites on it.

i have another domain (eg b.com) with pr0 having an active website.

if i redirect (301) a.com to b.com, would the pr3 transfer to b.com?

thank you so much.

I am not sure if you are aware of the current state of Google. PageRank used to be important many years ago. Focusing on traffic generating backlinks is much more important to the success of most websites.

If you have a website with backlinks, then a 301 redirect would be the right solution.

No, It is not possible.
However, Page rank is not important anymore. Try to improve Domain Authority, Page Authority, Alexa Rank etc.

You can't transfer the pr3...
But the link juice (from the backlinks) will transfer.

If you've purchased a domain with no website on it I'll take a leap and guess you purchased an expired domain. Search engines will often consider that expiration event something that should "reset" any existing link value.

If a.com and b.com are similar in theme and b.com doesn't have a lot of self-supporting metrics, I'd be inclined to move the b.com site content to the a.com domain.

Take note of the pages and structure of the site that used to exist on a.com, duplicate that and fill it in with your content from b.com.
Internet Archive helps with that process.

I have a similar situation where I purchased an expired domain that had existing links, it has retained those links for a few years and has some new ones, so I need to start improving and adding to the content.

If b.com is a viable working site with traffic, I would instead do redirects from a.com to b.com
