Moving a domain

TOG asked 3 years ago

We have started developing by adding content & Backlinks. How would be the best way to “move it” and keep all search engine rankings we have achieved to another .com domain (I feel that .com would do better)

I would also assume we have to contact all links partners and ask them to change where the link is pointing.

Furthermore out of the following domains which do you think would work best?

You will need to do a 301 redirect, then Google will pass on any benefits of the old domain (PR, links, etc.) to the new domain. Just do a search for 301 redirect and you should find plenty of help.

I like myself personally. It’s easy to remember.

Sorry, where is this webmaster section? I too would like to know what is wrong with gammon, and does it also apply to backgammon?

webber286 answered 3 years ago
That’s just advice on how to move to a new ISP. I believe the original question was how to redirect an older domain to a new domain in order to maintain the search engine benefits. For that, you need a 301 redirect.

I dont really get the thing with “gammon” though.

webber286 answered 3 years ago
I think it was just a personal adversion to the word gammon. Perhaps bmanhour didn’t realize it was in relationship to backgammon.
