Over the past few years a lot of websites have been hit by Google Penguin update. Backlinks from crappy web directories, blog comments, forums and spammy websites are the main reason of the Penguin’s activity.
A lot of SEOs expert have tried to get rid of the Google’s Penguin penalty, but with poor results.
There was a theory that said that 301 redirect to a new domain removes Google Penguin penalty, but is it true? Unfortunately 301’s and also 302 pass PageRank and signals and all the backlinks will follow over the new domain name.
The result is quite clear: the new domain will be hit again by Google Penguin penalty and more quickly than in the past (Penguin is now part of Google algorithm).

The only solution that works is to cut all the links that manipulate PageRank with the disavow tool.
