Will A New Url/ Domain Name Affect Serp Results And Page Rank
Posted 04 March 2007 - 11:09 PM
If i have site which has a page rank of say 4 or 5. This has a certain domain name. I also have with me a registered url which has my keyword in the url. If i rebrand the site with the new domain name will it affect my ranking or page rank. If i am not clear in what i am saying let me illustrate with an example. Suppose i have a site for used cars in london with domainname. carcareinlondon.com and now i rebarand the site with the domain name usedcarsinlondon.com how will it affect my site.

Keywords in URLs aren't much help and aren't worth changing URLs for.
Toolbar PageRank isn't much help, and not worth changing URLs for either.

You will lose all your rankings for the old domain while you wait for the new domain to become trusted.
The keywords in the domain name will have little to no effect. Personally, I feel it's no effect at all, but on the off chance that lots of people link to your site using the actual URL as the anchor text, there might be a miniscule effect if you separate the words with -.

If you do decide to swap domains plan on many months of pain.

What do you have against waiting?
Anything else would be attempting to subvert the search engines. Do you time, it will be worth it in the long run.

Well there is some debate in the SEO community that if you get a lot of traffic, optimize properly, build your site with a lot of solid unique content, and gain quality, authoritarian links, that the aging delay might not apply to you. This might be coming to fruition since my site is now ranked #23 in Google after only two months. Or am I getting ready for the big fall any minute from the dreaded aging delay sandbox penalty?
If Google does hit me with the aging delay punishment I will become very angry and might even delete Google off my computer and tell all my friends to quit using Google.

Then you need to be in a new business. End of story.

It's not a "punishment", It's a system that stops people getting to be top in 90 days

I'm sure that will scare Google into changing their evil ways...

You shouldn't. But unfortunately, we don't make the rules, Google does. The aging delay is a fact of life when you're dealing with competitive to moderately competitive words.
That's a lovely theory. Let us know how it goes.

Sounds like you're talking about very uncompetitive phrases then, which are not as affected by the aging delay, apparently.
