I have researched this online, but I want to ask my favorite Warriors? I have heard buying an old domain and redirecting it to your site is a good SEO technique. I have bought the domain, but I am curious as to what is the best way to redirect? I am assuming 301, but I am not technical familiar with this.

My question is what is the best way to accomplish this? Thanks!

    Yes, 301 Redirect is the best approach ( may be the only way ) to get redirected, and it is ok if you aren't aware about its technicality, though you may hire developer services to help you out.

    Regards

      Thanks! I was looking more for a "how". I am not looking for a web developer, I know enough about websites. There are various ways to do it, just looking for advice on the best option.

    Doing it should be fairly simple. If you're hosting the sites, you should be able to login to your control panel (cPanel) and then go to your domain manager and simply imput a re-direct.

    For example, if you want xyz.com to go to abc.com you'd simply imput that re-direct and it's done.

      I was trying to decide between .htmaccess, a plugin or the hosting site. I am assuming they all work the same as far as SEO, etc. ?

      That sounds like the easiest way - thanks!

    301 Redirect using htaccess is the best option...
