Сonsequences 301 redirect. Need some advice

    I wrote about the "301" on this forum some time ago.
    (http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=2172882&highlight=New+website+301+redirect.+Need+help.)

    At first time after redirect I've lost PR and traffic. Traffic eventually began to normalize, but pagerank never returned. Now, every day began to fall traffic to the site as backlinks ceased to bring visitors for some reason.

    Now I need some advice. I want move my site back to old domain (new.mysite.com >> (www.)mysite.com) to remove this 301 redirect.
    SEMrush
    Is that can be good idea? Or Can you advise me how to move site without any consequences now?

    I have removed all 301 redirects from my site as these were limiting backlinks and my pages were not being crawled properly. Idk why that happened. I would recommend you go into Google Webmasters and set your default domain from in there to www. However, you will lose your backlinks upon this.

    And one more question: Site already indexed in search engines (1 month online with 301 redirect). How critical will be back on a domain "www." ?

    Redirecting (301) your old domain has a very positive impact on the SERPs for the destination domain, but only for the search terms where domain A already ranked.

    What does NOT get transferred however is the accumulated toolbar PR for that domain.

    To make matters slightly more complex however, weight passing links to your old domains do pass SOME PR to the new domain. The total amount is somewhat diminished though.
