I just bought new domain for my web page. Is it good to use php redirection to the new domain and what are the exact headers that I must send to google bot to just renew the address and keep the page rank without loosing position in search results for the specific keyword ? Regards


301 permanent redirect.

It is not full proof, but it is the best approach.

  • Thanks for your answer. I'm reading something about '301 VS 303' What is you opinion? – T1000 Mar 26 '10 at 23:29
  • You can probably set up the redirect and, after Google notices it, you can delete the old domain. NOTE: That's just my guess. – Maxim Zaslavsky Mar 26 '10 at 23:31

have a look at http://www.google.com/webmasters/ once you set your site up in there, they have a whole page of info about changing domain names,etc


You should also do a change of address after you've done your 301 redirects, so Google knows your intentions: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/83106?hl=en

The 301 redirects should be mapped page - to - page, so that the content on each indexed page is relevant to the content on the mapped page on the new domain.
