Holy crap! It’s the 3rd of January and this is my first post!
No, I haven’t been avoiding posting or slacking already on my goals for 2014. I’ve spent the past 2 days making sure that my blog is redirecting right from the original domain name to here. I’d like to make sure it gets done without losing my page rankings and such.
I hate technical stuff!
I’m fairly sure at this point that it’s redirecting ok, but I won’t know for a couple of days as I see what Google is actually indexing and whether it’s getting indexed with the existing rankings and such.
When I first considered moving the site to the shorter domain, I didn’t even know that you could DO that!
I’d asked Lynn Terry over in the Private Coaching Forum if she had any thoughts on why I wouldn’t want to move it. She mentioned the existing indexing and rankings and gave me a couple places to go check out how to make it happen.
Two days later, several conversations with my (geekier than me) son, about 50 or so trial and error tests… and I thinks it’s working!
I’ll get back to you on this one when I know more!
p.s. Have you done this with any of your websites? If so, how did it turn out (just need to know if I should go buy a bigger box of tissues to handle more tears!)
