In 2013, we used the google disavow tool and got the unnatural linkbuilding removed from one of our sites that had been penalized. It still has good links and lots of citations throughout the web. But it did have that penalty before. This is a site for a local business and it was referenced in many citations and had links built to it.
Since then, we`ve started a new site for the location but never took the old site down.
On one hand, I`m nervous about passing on the penalty (if one still exists). But on the other hand, I would like the links and perhaps there is a confusion on google`s part since there are 2 websites linked to the same business. What would you recommend...
Should I 301 the old domain, eliminate it, or just leave it as?
