    Just spoke to Will. Sounds like he routinely migrates his sites to new domains with minimal to no traffic loss.

    All I can suggest is that you talk to him and see what's missing?

    Yep, I guess I'll do that.
    I was checking my logs and found something curious, after redirecting those sites Google images traffic just vanished (absolute zero), so I think there's something different that must be done about that.

    Definitely keep us posted as to what you find!

  4. It looks like one of these might be the case:

    • A Google penalty happened coincidentally at the same time.
    • The "new" domain was penalized before you bought it due to actions of the previous owner.
    • Google accidentally screwed something up, again.

    I hate to say this, but I'd file a Reconsideration Request. If that failed to work in 30 days, I'd undo the 301 and keep using the old domain.

    I would consider redirecting the specific pages to new URLs. Especially if the site has a lot of deep links.
