One of my client was having his domain name with .in extension. But, his target audience is US people. Since, his domain was .in extension he faced lot of problems to promote his website in the US and in other countries except India. So, I suggested him to register a new domain with .com extension and told him to 301 redirect that .in domain to new .com domain. Some of his keywords for the domain .in is having good ranking in the search engine google.com. Since, I suggested him to redirect his .in to .com will the keywords have same ranking in the Google? I too suggested him to replace his backlinks with the new URL. I just want to know whether this technique is effective or not. If not please suggest me some other options to promote the keywords of new .com domain.
