Hi Guys!

First off, new here so hello to everyone. I've just built a new website and am planning to transfer the contents from our existing website. By doing so, will SE penalize our new website? Is there a way around this such as deleting the articles on the old website?

I hope to hear from any of you. Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Roland

y first reaction would be to do a full review of all your old content and carefully consider which ones may have been hit by Panda - is there keyword stuffing, content duplicated from other sites, thin content...etc? Then either fix or completely rewrite those.

After that you should avoid publishing duplicated content so my view would be
1. Remove the rewritten/fixed articles completely from the old site
2. Don't implement the 301 so you don't get any redirected bad Penguin vibe
3. Put a block on those URLs using robots.txt
4. Remove the URLs from Google's index in Webmaster Tools
