Ok question, please provide feedback and not what was the right or wrong thing to do about the manual action and domains.
A company had a .com domain and a site that got hit with a manual action years ago, that action has been removed.
To combat that they created a .net version of the site and left both be for the last 2 years. Well the .com manual action was removed.
Here are some stats about both domains (with duplicate content for the most part). Let me know if you need more info. Please note too that some of the very top links I can ask to have pointed to the new domain, I would say 75% of them.
31 DR and 47 URL Rating. 31 of 200 tracked keywords (over 100 searches a month) in the top 10. 8.8k backlinks, 6 with a UR rating of 20 or above (not bad). Much older domain.
29 DR and 29 URL rating. 99 of 200 tracked keywords (over 100 search a month) in the top 10. 3.9k backlinks, 9 with a UR rating of 20 or above. not too bad, but a younger domain by 5-6 years.
What do you do? We want to combine the sites. Winner gets a thumbs up!
