I need a little help from the fine expert community here regarding my site...
I have a site that's building some nice traffic in a given niche. However, I now plan to expand beyond my niche into a much broader niche of the same topic (if that makes sense).
My dilemma is I would like to move to a different domain that reflects the broader niche of the same topic. BUT, is this possible?
(NOTE: I'm not interested in building a second site)
Here's my concerns:
1. Backlinking: I don't want to lose my back links. Will the right redirects preserve my backlinks/rankings?
2. Domain age: If #1 is doable then I assume that a new domain name could hurt rankings also...so do I need to get an aged domain?
I'm not sure if there are other issues but if anyone can comment on the above and add anything that would be great!
