301 Permanent Redirect?
Posted 22 August 2011 - 12:08 PM
I have a website which I want to transfer to a new domain. Suppose I have www.abc.com which I want to transfer to a new domain www.xyz.com. I did lot of SEO on www.abc.com and got good ranking on some keywords.
My question is if I permanently redirect (301 redirect) www.abc.com to www.xyz.com, will it pass all the backlink value of old domain to new one, and will the new domain gain rankings on the same keywords which I optimized for old domain.
If it is not the case, what could be the damages.

I am also going to change the structure of the website. I am going to add new pages, new RSS feeds, new design, new body content so on and so-forth, but the theme of the website will be the same (e.g graphic design website will still be graphic design website). What will be the repercussion if I still redirect the old domain to new one, or will I be safe?

This will ensure visitors via the old links still get what they want, and the search engines will update the indexed pages in an appropriate way.
I believe search engines may dock ranking if they believe a new pages content does not match up well with the old one. So the batter they match up the safer you are.
