So basic plan:
- 302 redirect the old domain to the new. (no dup content issues that way). I wanted to 301 but dont want to get the new site penalized
- Moving over what quality links we have (99% are garbage)
- Sit and wait, new site is registered last month so I'm sure I wont have my rankings back for what 5 months? sigh
An Update for you guys: It's only been 4 days since the 302 and my .net has exploded with double the traffic the penalized site had 1 week ago. We're already ranking for many long tail keywords, believe it or not.
The weird thing is the Pagerank for the 1 month old registered .net is already a 4, so was my old site. Must be some kind of bug. Anyway will let u know if I get the penalty passed to the new site, hopefully not.
