I recently did a bunch of 301's on my website when I updated my directory structure. Shouldn't the new files eventually inherit the page rank of the old? If so, how long should it take?

301 is nothing but the Permanent Redirect and it is the only redirect method which is do not affect page rank :)

If you did a correct 301 permanent redirect, Pagerank will be passed to the new page. Because of this, I would make sure you redirected those old pages to the new pages and not just everything to the new domain. Now the Pagerank bar is only updated every so often so don't expect to visually see the Pagerank passed immediately.

I would still try to find any links pointing to those old pages and request they be pointed to the new pages.

how is it possible that the pr of your old domain transfer to the new domain only by applying 301 redirect method?


Because Google knows that you are creating new page or domain and wants to pass all neccessary information to it. You will find tons of information from Matt Cutts and Adam Lasnik

Here is a response from Adam Lasnik in Google Groups answering his exact question:

"301s pass PR and related signals appropriately. Usually takes a
couple of weeks for things to smooth out, though."

Would "related signals" likely include negative effects, such as being flagged for spam ?

If I went out and bought a dozen small websites and redirected each of them to a single new site, could I be dead before I even get started if 10 of those 12 sites were flagged for spam, link sales, etc ?

Not at at all...that's very common. An example would if you owned:

http://www.trademarkwidgets.info
http://www.trademark-widgets.com
http://www.trademarkwidgets.org
http://www.trademarkwidgets.net

and you wanted them to all redirect to your main domain http://www.trademarkwidegets.com. We have done this with tons of clients over the years.

Another example is if you have multiple pages on an old domain and want to redirect maybe only 100 pages to a new domain...I've done this before as well with no problems.

301 redirects have always been the safe way to redirect pages or domains for search engines and seo.
