I recently acquired the domain <myname>.com
Obviously .com has more prestige than .net, so my first though was to migrate my site to the .com and then 301 redirect the .net to the .com. But is this shortsighted? Should I just leave my site at the .net and redirect the .com? Is whatever .com prestige I'm gaining with people not worth whatever search engine goodness I'll lose when I migrate my site?
Would I be better off just having the .com redirect, TELLING people my site is the .com and letting them just find my long-standing .net site though the redirect? Or then will any new back-links I score to the .com site not help for my search rankings in the future?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
