I have an old website that I believe is under some sort of a Google penalty. It was a personal IM blog with good, unique content that was doing pretty well until I (in my stupidity) blasted it with some mass article directory links and reduced my organic traffic to 0
My question is:
1) Is it ok if I buy a new domain and copy all the old content to the new blog and then delete the old site
I don't want to do a 301 re-direct because I feel the penalty may transfer over to the new site.
