2 domains 301 redirect on 1 Domain?

Is this good?

I have a domain (D1) that has a good rank and send me decent traffic.

However I wanted to start a blog and registered a different domain (D2). I was stupid that I should have started a blog in the same domain. However by the time I realized, the second domain had already started getting good ranking and traffic.

10 months into it I realized that the domain name I bought wasn’t “fully” catering to the needs of the blog as I was expanding it day by day. So I bought an appropriate domain (D3) and did a 301 permanent redirect from (D2) to the new domain (D3) a few days back.

Today I see Google has started sending traffic to the new domain. So far so good!

The problem is I am now finding it difficult to maintain 2 websites in the same niche. So my question is should I also 301 my first domain (D1) to my current domain (D3)? Remember domain (D2) is already 301 to domain (D3).

Am I going in the right direction? What will happen if I do this? Will the domain (D1) lose its rankings? Or should I wait as I already did a 301 to the domain (D3)?

301 can be implemented from D1 to D3 however you have to keep in mind the keywords for which D1 is ranking and make sure that onpage on D3 should be good enough to support the rankings being enjoyed by D1. This way you would not suffer any loss while redirecting D1 to D3.

Thanks engine friend. As I said, D1, D2 and D3 are ALL in the same niche, so this should not be a problem.

I was thinking of redirecting it to D1 (the oldest domain cos of the domain age factor), but D3 has a smart meaningful domain name keeping with all the factors/services I can implement in the future.

Thanks again.

If you have just redirected the D2 domain to D3, I would recommend you should wait for some time until all the link value and the traffic that was on D2 starts to come on D3 (alteast 85-90% traffic)
Then implement 301 redirect from D1 to D3 and would be good if it can be page level redirect to get the maximum benefits.

Agreed.
