Do a permanent redirect from the old domains to the new ones via .htaccess if they are hosted on a Unix/Linux flavored server.
I'm too afraid to risk losing the sites for a few months on established domains nowadays with Google. It's a shame because I have been able to pickup shorter domain names over the years.

Thanks a lot for your reply. I dont want to dump my old domain. Is it possible i can run old & new both the sites & Page rank can be transfered to the new domain. New domain is not a fresh domain it already have PR 3 but now i want to transfer the engine Traffic & PR to this new domain from old one. If without 301 page rank can not be transfered, is there any way i can transfer the engine traffic to the new domain.

hehe...I wouldn't advise this... others can chime in if they want on cloaking etc.
It sounds like you want to have duplicate sites? If it is different content then your not going to rank very well anyways after they figure out all the content has changed.

I don't care that 301 is googles recommended means to the final end here. if you 301, your rankings and pr are flushed down the toilet.
You need to contact ALL link aprtners and get them to cahnge links, you need to get your arse out of the sandbox.
It could take 6 weeks, or 12 months, its basically a new site as far as google is concerned.
IMHO forget the 301, do a meta refresh first for 6 weeks. Google will then transfer the rankings and pr to the new site, THEN do a 301.
Having tanked two sites with a 301, then tried the refresh THEN 301 method for another it works a hell of a lot better.

How much change are we talking about? It wouldn't seem fair if near-same content were essentially penalized for being moved.

Thanks But on the old site i dont have any link partner meand i did not do any link exchange campaign for this site and this is an old site which is ranking very very high in google with more than 1cr competition for every keyword or phares. My New site is 3 for all the page with link pages as well. also i have got the app. 100 quality links from the PR4-5 partners. My main problem is The old site i am handling since 4 years now is being transfered to the other webmaster due to some personal reason. I wont be handling this now so i dont want anybody to eat my chees i have got from my humble efforts. Thatsy i am looking for this solution. I believe this is something personal i discussed but really bad for me :(
hope you understand
