Question: What type of redirect should I use? Answer: 301 is only good redirect.
Question: Can older domains be in sandbox? (Sandbox: newer sites may face sandbox, which means they are delayed on showing up in search engine results). Answer: Domains well-established or older domains do not usually have sandbox. Tanya’s Tips: 1.For those who have many older domains that you started, but never finished, these would be good domains to use now. If you had some content and it was indexed, it is better than buying a new domain. 2.Preplan your sites. Put as much basic information on a new domain as soon as you can. Let it get indexed, build a few links and then move on to something else. Go back to it in 3-6 months and finish it off and link build some more.
