I already moved the site to a new URL and currently have 301 redirects in place. However, once I give up the URL, I will lose the 301 redirects, correct? Is there anything I can do to keep from losing all the years of links, SEO and hard work I've put into this site? How long do redirects need to be in place to be of benefit? Would it help if I'm able to keep the URL until my registration expires (in three months) vs. giving it up today?
Thank you in advance.
