Moving from Old Domain to new One

 4:16 pm on Feb 10, 2013 (gmt 0)


I have a Blog setup on a domain for the last 6 years and has PR of 3. However, i got a very short domain name and would like to shift the old blog to the new domain.

1. If I do a RedirectPermanent will the new domain get the same rank as Old One ?

What do experts here in have got to say ?

Response appreciated.

I'd say the new domain will get bout 85% of the old domain's backlink power. All the remaining factors involved with ranking power should even out to about the same level... eventually.

"RedirectPermanent" suggests that you're not planning to use mod_rewrite to do the redirects. Using mod_rewrite would enable you to properly canonicalize the domain, and I recommend it as the way to go.

Assuming you're running on Apache, we've got an Apache Web Server forum [webmasterworld.com...] with a library that could provide basic code and background, and advise you if you need further help.
