Change Domain Name?
« on: 02-17-2015, 10:54:28 »
Hello,

How much effect does a domain name change have on PR?

I'll be planning to move my website from one domain to another in the future. My plan is to still keep the old domain for a few months, but redirect every link with a 301 moved permanently HTTP header from the old to the new domain.

So the server would 301 redirect from the old to the new, keeping the request url:
olddomain.com/something/ -> newdomain.com/something/

Is there something else I should take into consideration before doing the change?

Also, did you do a domain change in the past and how did it work out for you?

Page rank update has been stopped by Google. So whatever process you use now for building your page rank, everything will go in vain for now until Google announces something.

If you are planning to move website from old domain to new, Redirecting whole website is the option left.
and if you redirect it, you have to keep both domains active. because you are redirecting it to new. So after few months if it is expired, you will stop getting traffic from your old domain as it is expired and all your SEO work will be wasted.
 You have to start with 0 for new website.
So take decision wisely. You should contact SEO expert before taking any steps.
